A Very Inspirational and Tactile Home in Melbourne

It’s funny really, for a while I have really been struggling finding inspirational homes to share. These days where you get bombarded from all sides with pictures of design projects all in the same color tone, it really is rare that a project makes me stop in my scrolling. For a home to inspire me, it needs to be filled with different materials, patterns, shapes, and colors. Definitely something that gives me more than just a dose of all-over beige.

This project is an alteration and addition to a weatherboard Edwardian house in inner Melbourne done by Kennedy Nolan, a Melbourne-based architecture practice. I just love their approach to texture, color, and patterns – and all those round windows and curved walls make all the difference.

I love an open plan kitchen with plenty of room to wine and dine, and with the added, very stunning I might add, tiled wall, marble counters, and terrazzo tile floor, this is, my friends, how I picture a dream kitchen anno 2020. I mean, I just can’t stop staring at all those great details. How cute is that build-in nook with the round window?

I’m all in. Don’t think there is one thing I don’t like.
