One word to describe the stunning and stylish Breust Residence in Australia: transparency. The house, flooded by light, is a gorgeous mix of sophisticated details, guarded by an infinity pool (also with a transparent structure) on a side and a marvelous garden on the other. The people responsible for accomplishing such a mesmerizing final result are the ones behind JUO, an Australian, Perth-based design studio. The living room is structured as a long (and transparent) corridor. The high ceilings and the glass walls create this perfect breezy atmosphere that enhances the feeling of freedom.
The Breust Residence is playful: striking shapes, contrasting materials were used in defining it. The two-story residence is spacious and luminous with incredible high ceilings, exhaling elegance (just take a look at the gorgeous copper-like circular bulbs hanging from the ceiling) but also piece of mind, due to the uncluttered décor. “The full height glazing not only maintains this main living area as an extension of the outdoors – with gardens and water on either side – but also allows for natural cross ventilation to cool the space efficiently and naturally without mechanical intervention or air conditioning. The view of water has been created through the use of glass to the side of the above ground lap pool, mimicking the extent of the volume between the two pavilions.”
An eclectic living room can still have a distinct air of modernity or an undeniably Victorian flair borrowed from an era lost in time. Even though the room is a carefully constructed blend of three or four styles, let one of them shine out and dominate the setting. It is often the backdrop, the style of decor and their silhouette that define the design style that is the loudest among the lot. A refined, neutral backdrop with furniture that has clean, straight lines shouts out modern or contemporary, while flowing curves, bold colors and intricate patterns take you to vintage and classic themes.
