The last few years have seen many classic homes in Australia get a modern makeover that allows urban families to make the most of the limited space that they offer. This gorgeous Edwardian house in Melbourne is no different with its revamped interior designed by Bryant Alsop combining the old with the new in a seamless and efficient manner. The renovation is truly captivating and yet feels understated as a new living area, kitchen and dining space are engulfed in white and blue. The color scheme is both versatile and trendy with a series of smart blue cabinets in the kitchen making things even more attractive.
The new interior embraces modernity at every turn with the living area sitting on a level that is slightly lower than the kitchen and dining area next to it. This entire setting opens up in the backyard and the wooden deck outside and the line between the living space and the outdoors are cleverly blurred away. The entry room features a touch of gray along with the doors while the bedrooms charm with floral prints and modern art additions. A flood of natural light in every room ensures that there is no space for dull corners anywhere.
A small workstation in the kitchen gives the homeowners a chance to get things done both on professional and personal fronts. Smart, space-savvy and cheerful, this is a home makeover that leaves you with a pleasant smile on your face! [Photography: Jack Lovel]
