There’s no place like home especially when it’s a cozy and colorful abode such as this one. Located in North Coogee, Western Australia and designed by Collected Interiors, this renovated modern family dream home is doused in fresh hues and brilliant natural light.
A mix of vintage with modern, rustic with contemporary, this dwelling easily becomes a casual-chic environ for its family to reside within. While the play on color is apparent in all living areas, it’s also well-balanced with the organic woods, glass and grey-meets-white palette. Artworks throughout inject rich reds, blues, yellows and orange into these modern spaces.
A shared living room-dining room-kitchen allows for plenty of interaction between family members. The all-white kitchen features glossy laminate cabinets and a slim island flanked by wooden stools. A large wood pedestal dining table is surrounded by industrial white metal chairs, while the entire ensemble sits upon a thin accent rug depicting a colored spectrum of squares.
White leather sofas in the family room rest upon a seagrass carpet and are centered around an emerald green, tufted velvet ottoman–this is fabulous! The upstairs is carpeted in a neutral tone, while the bedrooms are serenely framed in white, charcoal and black.
A large covered loggia is an extension from the main living area, replete with elegant wire mesh and cushioned furnishings, grilling station and wine refrigerator, becoming the perfect place for entertaining. An adjacent patio with cantilevered roof allows for lounging and dining under the skies. A metal-topped table and chairs sits along a distressed wooden bench adorned with designer throw pillows. This inviting terrace is blooming with trees and potted plants, making for a holistic outdoor space.
This Colorful Home is an example of how a simple renovation using color, light and outdoor space can create an entirely new living habitat.
