Tour an Australian Designer’s Modern-meets-traditional Home
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Jess Hunter takes viewers through her new-build home in the southern highlands of New South Wales, Australia. She shows how a galvanised metal roof, painted wood cladding and brick on the exterior conform to the architecture of the heritage neighbourhood, while an open-plan layout and minimalist kitchen with black cabinets modernise the interior.
Jess also discusses how she used oversized pendant lights and a centrally located fireplace and chimney to create zones in the open-plan living area. A polished concrete floor was ground down to reveal the inner aggregate that Jess specified herself, and which resembles an eye-catching dark terrazzo. Linen curtains and a linen sofa help to soften the surfaces in the living space.
