An Aussie home with minimalist global style

If it was possible to marry a house (and it probably is somewhere in the world), I’d be seriously tempted by this absolutely stunning Melbourne home. Offering the perfect blend of global styling, ethnic influences, leafy green accents and monochrome minimalism, the only thing I would consider adding into the mix would be some additional colour (a bright kilim rug or some ikat print cushions would be the icing on the cake for me).

For lovers of Scandinavian design considering whether, or how, to incorporate some ethnic hints or travel-obtained bounty into a space, I think this type of global styling offers a great starting point. Chucking in some bright colours or mismatched accessories (not too many though) would work within this space without overpowering it or ruining the look.

But enough from me – over to this beautiful house….

Light, bright and airy with Moroccan influences. I love the dark wood which contrasts so well with the bright white.

Effortlessly chic, textured and stylish

This is a great example of blending traditional Moroccan elements with a contemporary scheme. The house plants add just the right splash of colour.

If I ever have a pool area (unlikely in UK climes) I would like it to look like this please.

The overall style of this house continues outside. This provides a really cohesive feel.

I love this outdoor seating area which reverses the colour scheme within the house. The white peacock chair makes a bold boho statement without seeming too fussy.

For me, this house is a great example of upmarket global style. The neutral scheme provides the perfect backdrop to show off treasures picked up from around the world and enables them to stand out and draw attention to themselves. The ideal foray into global styling for those who tend to prefer a more minimalist scheme.

Happy travels, and shopping,

    Gorgeous!
    Although I agree with you on adding some splaches of colour (otherwise I wouldn’t be me).
    And couldn’t help but smile, it might be an Aussie home – but the centre-piece of the living room is a Danish design classic đŸ˜‰ The Hans J Wegner Flagline chair from 1950! (http://www.illumsbolighus.com/shop/pp225_flag_halyard_chair.aspx )
    Xxx, Eva
