Gorgeously crafted garden stretches add to an already energetic living room that is filled with a bright blue couch orange and green chairs and a large sofa that provides ample sitting space. Even the open glass shelves in different colors accentuate this appeal of playful contemporary panache that is carried through into the dining space and the kitchen.
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 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.
Décor is kept simple and minimal with the likes of classic Eames Lounger adding timeless appeal to an otherwise distinctly modern interior. As is the norm these days large sliding glass doors make their presence felt in every room even as the homeowners are tempted to spend more time outdoors than inside. Brilliant lighting and minimal accessories complete a Texas home that reinterprets that classic ‘courtyard house style’ by adding contemporary sheen.
A beautiful painted brick wall in the living space and metallic finishes carefully intertwined with the very structure of the home give this rejuvenated dwelling its distinct rustic-modern vibe that is both relaxing and refreshing.
While one of the two volumes holds the living room kitchen and dining space the other contains three bedrooms two bathrooms an attic and a terrace. The color palette inside the house is filled with earthen hues with stone adobe and cane dominating much of the setting while the red grass sun roof outside seems to extend this ‘nature-centric’ theme.
Essentially the delightful residence brings together a series of courtyards and open spaces bound by glass and stone walls to create a relaxing imaginative and exclusive interior. Apart from the obvious stone and glass presence it is the sturdy steel beams that bring another interesting dimension to this Aussie home even as the two butterfly roofs open up to bring in as much sunlight as possible.
