The residence in the picture is located in Melbourne,Australia and Mim Design created this impressive contemporary interior design. It was already an art deco residence, but what was succeeded was to complement and emphasize the beautiful period features. The result is a striking and dramatic monochromatic color palette, impossible not to impress.
The original Art Deco home was the front part and the rooms were transformed into a retreat for the client. The mood and deluxe details are the key words; actually, there is a constant feeling of high level of detail and finishing and this is also applied to the contemporary space, but here it there is a more casual feel that makes you feel comfortable. The sitting and dining room are perfectly connected; double doors lead into these rooms with originality and beautiful details. The central theme that can be encountered through different spaces of the house is the layering of portals.
The soft grey walls with black framing and window shutters portray a deluxe bedroom setting; the kitchen is the anchor of the house connecting the original home and the more recent extension. The monochromatic palette brings a clean contemporary line even in the kitchen. The integration of finishes and shapes into the lower living room area is great. In fact, everything is great and contributes to create a calm and serene backdrop where isolated elements, artwork or just a sofa pillow make the difference; the vibrant blue chair against the soft gray of the bedroom is sublime and everything around transforms this place into my kind of interior space.
