Parkdale Contemporary Barn is a decade-long collection of ideas and styles that have been tested and collected through many different projects. Having the opportunity to design our own Minett Studio home for our family provided a wonderful opportunity to be playful and experiment with different colours and textures that traditionally our clients have been a little reluctant to try. Each room has its own character and colour play, an experience of joy as you engage with each space differently. The colours and materials palette as a whole work well together and bring harmony and peace to the home in its entirety. The Laundry Bootsroom is a cool grey-blue with patterned tiles and Milky Zellige herringbone splashback, a Nod to country style.

The Barn is sophisticated and a little more masculine with the Black Oak Shaker cabinets and striking Matazarro Marble from Brazil. The appliances are stainless steel with an oversized Falcon range showing that this is a Cooks Kitchen and ready for some serious entertaining. The Children’s bedrooms are a soft Blue for quiet reflection and the master suite is warm with board and batten detailing, rich walnuts and soft limestone. The Powder Room is Ming Green Pickets and swirled Corian to provide movement and texture with backlit mirrors for moody appeal.

The floorplan and layout were carefully considered, refreshing an existing 1960’s clinker brick home with a T shape plan into a contemporary and sustainable home for a new era. By keeping as much of the existing home as possible and inserting the new L shape Barn and Master wing, brought together the two styles and merged them seamlessly together. Providing a sense that the home is timeless and lived in rather than cavernous and cold as some new homes can be with everything shiny and new.

The garden was re-imaged with Perennials and Tree plantings, soft creeping textures and formal buxus balls to re-create a country cottage garden feel. Everyone who enters the home is taken aback by the proportions and atmosphere, warm, inviting and designed for human scale, for conversation, quiet time and family gatherings. A refuge from the busy world. Home is really our sanctuary like never before.
