We recently teamed up with the talented Eve Gunson from Dot + Pop to learn about her signature style; a look we define as Modern Australian. Australia is all grown-up. Gone are the days when we need to rely on European influence to guide our aesthetic. The Modern Australian home is as sophisticated as any Parisian abode, with a cultural bent toward laid back al fresco living. Natural surfaces, classic colour schemes and clean lines characterise the contemporary Australian residence.
When searching for the right fittings for a Modern Australian home, look for shades of black, white and grey. Use natural stone and incorporate timber for an embracing warmth from the outdoors.Interior styling and design expert, Eve, uses furniture and fittings to frame open space. Her Instagram profile shows that modern simplicity is at its best when unadorned. Your home has more value as a space to welcome people than to house things. Your guests will take in the texture and visual appeal of their surroundings more when there is minimal clutter. Eve's signature style of home curation appeals to the minimalist in us all. It speaks to our desire for a simple life, for our need to relax and unwind in our own environment. The Modern Australian home is a sanctuary for contemplation, allowing us to relish in the freedom of unadornment and take joy in artful simplicity. As you can see here, the key to this look is allowing plenty of natural light to filter through. Natural light bridges inside to outside and allows for a full appreciation of your home's peaceful modernity.
The Subiaco Honed Herringbone Feature Tile pairs perfectly with a Tahra Matt Stone floor and Wall Tile in the bathroom. The Tahra Matt Floor Tile flows through to the laundry and is offset nicely by a Wellington Herringbone Matt Splashback. For continuity, bring the Subiaco Honed Herringbone Feature Tile from the bathroom through to the kitchen splashback. The Carlton Matt Concrete Floor Tile works for low maintenance living. A Franklin Exfoliated Granite Tile completes the look outside, taking you on a seamless journey from inside to outside. As Eve from Dot + Pop would say, the Modern Australian style is inspired by natural simplicity.
