The use of dark-toned wooden surfaces and finishes also adds to the tropical style of the home that is accentuated by the design of the ceiling and the lovely shutters. With summers getting really hot on this beautiful Aussie island the ‘completely open’ design allows for natural cooling with the ocean breeze flowing through the interior.
Space is often the biggest issue in most modern homes with many of us looking to find that extra square footage that we feel would make all the difference. But when it comes to a lovely vacation home on the beach one does not really need a whole lot of room and even the smallest can fill your idyllic summer afternoons with unabated joy.
Designed by Renato D’Ettorre Architects the open plan living area of the beach house is draped in white along with native hardwoods that give it warmth and usher in a dash of visual contrast.
The exterior of this cool cottage also paints a picture of textural beauty as white cedar is combined with a dash of raw exposed steel to shape a façade that would age beautifully as it wears on.
Crafted by WernerField & Joshua Rice Design the living room here is filled with plenty of natural light as sliding glass doors connect the interior with the view outside. It is white drapes that add another layer of functionality to the large glass doors as they combine privacy with unabated views and even aid in filtering the sunlight on hot summer days.
The idea here was to not just fashion a home that connects with the panoramic scenery but also to incorporate design flexibility and adaptability that lets it grow along with the needs of the homeowners.
A Neutral backdrop is a feature that is all too common in modern homes and the in Texas is no different as its walls are clad in simple white. But that does not mean this is devoid of uniqueness or personality as it is carefully curated furniture custom décor pieces and of course nifty accessories that give it an aura of its own.
