Urbanology Designs took a modern, rustic approach to this home in Dallas, Texas and it creates such a casual, warm, and earthy feel. There are so many wonderful textures you almost don’t notice how neutral the colour scheme is.
Positioned behind a historical facade this new extension by B.E architecture in Albert Park, Melbourne bridges the gap between a significant past and the future. Progress is a term that gets bandied around almost with a negative connotation but good design looks to what could be, what is waiting to be and takes the leap.
“The home is a rich layering of textures; the sleek plaster walls of the house are striking against the lush green setting of a Napa vineyard. Clean and modern, the home is given a warmth and depth by a material palette that starts by pairing concrete, still holding in its texture the character of the forms that made it, with soft upholstery and bright pops of color. A tight-grain wood maintains the simplicity of the palette while inviting in more complex warmth and depth, and allowing the more rustic details of the project to stand out without overpowering a project that remains distinctly modern in its feel.”

We loved the first stage of this Armadale, Melbourne home by Simone Haag. Sensationally chic and fashion forward (here). The next area tackled by Simone and her team was the informal living space. Family friendly but still so design savvy just like its fashion director owner. Cesca chairs, Maralunga sofa, perfect!
