This home, with its dark floors, solid structure and monochromatic hues is mighty handsome. That word feels perfect for this house don’t you think? Handsome, but not overly masculine. Light and bright, but anchored with darkness. Award winning Melbourne practice Whiting Architects has perfectly balanced all these elements to create a stunning and livable home. Let’s go on a house tour…
The inclusion of natural wood and neutral tones throughout the house create warmth and take the edge off a palette that may otherwise be too stark. Shades of grey also add a lovely softening effect.
The black and white bathroom is so simple and dramatic. I love the raised wet area and the impact of the large black tiles against the original architectural detailing around the window.
Some on-trend monochromatic interiors seem to lack a bit of soul and life, but this handsome home is full of both. I think the artful and considered execution elevates the trend to a whole new level. What do you think? Are you a fan of black and white? And if not does this go some way to swaying you in the direction of monochrome when it’s done well?
