The home of artist Ali McNabney-Stevens, combines colors and textures to the contemporary style of interior design.
Recycled brick wall,of their original home and window overlooking a reflection pond, form a feature in the entry of home, but other than this nod to the past. The old house was demolished and then it was possible to build the new house.
“Our first home was a tiny Art Deco apartment in South Yarra, but it was never going to accommodate a growing family. We then purchased an old home on a large block in a neighbouring suburb, unsure as to whether we would renovate or build.” says Ali to the Inside Out website.
With recycled brick wall – of their original home – and picture window overlooking a reflection pond, form a feature in the entry and a contemporary fireplace at living room of Art House, makes this the perfect place to sit and warm up for long hours.
A beautiful Splashback texture made of black rectangular ceramic tiles, combined with the rectangular windows above the counter, created a perfect match for the Art House kitchen.
The textures and colors of kitchen, created a armonic visual for the home decor. The contrasts of textures and color such as: black tiles, “concrete” floor, American oak and blue color of the cabinets, contributed to this combination.
“It’s all in the details. Exposed track on our big warehouse door breaks up a hallway and provides interest to this multipurpose room. We love the mix of organic materials, cool colours and warm American oak in our Art House kitchen. It’s made for entertaining and casual family meals at that big bench.” From the Builder
Floor-to-ceilings glass windows and a beautiful collection of Ali’s artworks stand out in the decor, bringing more color and joy to the house.
