my scandinavian home: A striking family home in Melbourne

A striking family home in Melbourne

Wednesday, 29 October 2014

Beautiful homes in Melbourne, Australia are popping up left, right and centre right now. But this home, recently featured on the Style Files is extra special as it's been nominated for the 2014 Austalian Design Awards. Designed by Robson Rak in collaboration with Made by Cohen, this Edwardian house in Elwood has been transformed into a contemporary light filled family home.  The look is simple and elegant with a mainly black and white theme throughout and yet the space retains a cosy and relaxed vibe. So lovely!

Wow, what a home! Is it just or me or could you imagine this space ever looking messy?!

The one thing that really stands out to me are the window nooks. Those empty spaces by a window usually taken up by a radiator can in fact be the best places in a house to sip a coffee while looking out over the street / countryside beyond, or to read a magazine in the amazing natural light. I love nooks so much I even started a Pinterest board dedicated to them here! Something else for my home in addition to the yellow we talked about yesterday?!

Anything stand out to you in particular?

I've shown my fair share of beautiful Australian homes on my scandinavian home including the modern look here, bohemian here and vintage inspired here!

You could always take a peek at the many stunning homes featured over at Australin blog Design Files too.

Have a wonderful day!
