Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on the Mawson House. It’s a beautiful 1960’s home that has excellent structure and potential and whilst the home is in fairly good condition the owners are wanting to enjoy a more contemporary way of living. The home lacks storage and good functionality for how we live today and looking for solutions was my main focus this week.
When you’re short on space functional design is critical. Within this bedhead, you could incorporate some long-term hidden storage in the timber section – think freshly laundered blankets that are pre-wrapped direct from the dry cleaner! A lift-up lid would do the trick. It also doubles as a decorative shelf and a simple bedhead. This idea will work perfectly in the Mawson House as well as another Master Bedroom redesign I’m working on at the moment.
An absolutely stunning way to bring natural light into a space if windows are not an option. Think narrow blocks or semi’s. It’s also a really great option if space is an issue. This is an option we are looking at installing in the Mawson House WIR to maximise wall space, improve functionality and still be able to provide the all important natural light and airflow.
As the designer, my clients want me to think about all of those small details that will make their design into their home. Thinking about the finer design details for the Mawson House master ensuite and this framed shower screen really grabbed my attention especially paired with the darker grout lines and herringbone floor tile. Pretty sweet! Although this type of look isn’t part of the design concept the framed shower would certainly lend a statement detail to the space.
