This house was planned around the earthiness of rustic red brick and the industrial twist of raw concrete and steel. The house was stretched out in different living zones and was cleverly separated in different areas by the use of the over sized glass doors and the over sized rustic concrete pillar which has to be the biggest x-factor of the whole house. Earthy tones and muted colors, natural materials throughout.
Cover & Introduction
This is the front entrance of the house. She loves her over sized industrial steel and glass doors and was not prepared to swop them for a 'proper' wooden front door as was expected.
This is the outside living room just off the kitchen. With it's own fireplace, it is a highly functional at all seasons.
This part of the outside living room is under a timber roof to keep it more cozy.
The rustic brick and raw concrete and then the surprise of a modern glass light feature. And of course the transportation was provided.
A long and narrow table was designed on higher legs to serve as an open bar. The green walls are one of the signature quirky decisions that was carried through inside and outside.
The luxury of old leather in the very comfortable day beds on the patio.
The industrial steel lighting was used throughout the space and was juxtaposed against the natural bamboo lights.
Concrete fireplace and window surrounds and the most amazing rustic brick walls create so much interest. The furniture and décor stayed neutral and earthy.
The open plan living room was divided in different seating areas by the use of an over sized concrete column which created the most wonderful x-factor to the space. On one side it is screened off by glass doors into the hallway and entrance, and on the other side similar doors to the kitchen dining
On the other side of the concrete column is this area, which she describes as the feminine side. It has lovely views out on the garden, and the colors and feel of the space is softer and lighter.
Whichever side of the column you are...there will be a space to make yourself at home....to find yourself...to be yourself.....
Even this beautiful Bauhaus inspired ottoman find itself at home.......
The chaise lounge for the lazy days when staying in the room reading are the only thing you want to do.
This is the master bedroom. The bedding was kept neutral and earthy, but so inviting.
This rustic bench and cowhide was one of her most favorite finds for the space.
This is the staircase that leads to the second bedroom suite.
In the hallway, just outside the bedroom door is this cozy little corner. With warm earthy tones to suck up all the hard industrial elements.
This the entrance hall of the house. It is rustic but also industrial with all the elements that was used to make it a very special space.
The bedroom suite upstairs. It is also a lovely double bedroom and there is no reason why it can't also be used as a master bedroom.
The clever use of a mirrored wall created the feel of more space.
This is the downstairs master bathroom. It is rustic and earthy! With a big soaker tub to shake off the day.
This the upstairs bathroom. Although it's smaller than the downstairs bathroom with just a shower and no soaker tub, it has the same rustic charm of the rest of the house.
On the landing space upstairs is this little welcoming art wall.
In the long, narrow space of the dining room, she used the longest dining table she could fit in! And for her, it is an easy thing to lay out a simple meal of bread and wine, fill the room with friends and to talk long into the night.
The kitchen and dining space flows together. She managed to create an rustic, earthy space with lots of industrial features. The green walls was used as a signature finish on the walls and she love the atmosphere it brings in the space.
