Elongated brown brick, which is a reminder of this once working class suburb, features on both the exterior and throughout the interior of the home, like in the entryway.

Inside the home, you quickly realize how open the interior is to the landscaped courtyard that sits in the middle of the home, making the house a true indoor/ outdoor living environment.

Back inside, a timber batten ceiling contrasts the white concrete floor, keeping the interiors light and and airy. A black wall in the living helps to define the space in the large open room.

In the bedroom, the walls and flooring have been kept light. The dark grey upholstered headboard and the black lamp create contrast, and the light wood nightstand ties in with the other wood elements in the home.
