This home combines cool and classic, and shakes them into shape with a dose of funky, says
adorns one wall on the stairs up to the first floor; the other walls kept neutral. It’s at once totally classic and yet naturally en vogue at the same time. It’s light and bright, aided by a skylight.
An office uses more old-school second-hand furniture as a desk and chair. An original wooden fireplace has logs in its hearth and the same utilitarian grey colour adorns the walls, peppered by pieces of art.
If there’s any room that branches into a decidedly chic and contemporary look, it’s the bathroom. Dark grey tiles add warmth; a modern-shaped freestanding tub is set off by a hot pink towel; and open shelves act as storage. Original wood is left at the windows and the walls are kept suitably neutral – a soft palette of colours that adds to the feeling of brightness. It’s a space that’s fresh and functional, smart and stylish.
This home is notable for so many things, not just as a striking property from an exterior perspective – but for being so interesting on the inside too. Plenty of natural, dark wood is left exposed and is combined with a neutral, sometimes funky, colour scheme. Light fixtures are kept interesting, frames on the wall the traditional made modern; and with covetable original features. Unique and interesting, this is one home with personality in abundance.
