Transforming your drab and outdated property into a modern benchmark of urban living is no easy feat. Under the careful eye of Christopher Elliott Design however, anything is possible. And that is exactly the case for this single storey Templestowe residence located in Melbourne, Australia. The expansive home was previously a dark and uninspiring 1970s property, but with Elliott’s fresh input, new architecture was quickly put in place to liven the place up.
This included opening up the area and adding sliding doors to provide access to the centrally located pool and courtyard. Interior design elements such as designer furniture, carpet and artwork also work together to create that cool modern feel without ditching the crucial homeliness factor entirely. Lining the walls with organic and synthetic structures such as stone and wood also help to add contrasting textures to the extensive white interior.
