Bright Modern Style in Perth

Looking for a light, refreshing source of inspiration for your home? Look no further than this 50’s style Perth, Australia home, profiled in the April issue of Inside Out magazine.

Pastel Living Room

Large windows, white walls and low furniture create the foundation in the living room, while accessories in pastels & bright colours create a fun and lively tapestry.

Colourful Living Room

A mix of pattern creates interest, and doesn’t feel overwhelming.

Master Bedroom

Pattern continues in the principal bedroom, with continuity achieved through repetition of colours. The flamboyant Elitis wallpaper, “Parade Moko”, is a grand baroque statement. Notice the turquoise stitching in the headboard, instead of buttons.

Wallpaper also makes a statement in a little girl’s room: Elitis’ “Kandy (are you passionate)”.

Colourful Kid's Bedroom

All the colours of the home join in the knitted throw on the bed.

Below, a yellow sofa anchors the study, where the rug and colourful shelves carry on the colour story.

Yellow Sofa in the Study

The desk on the other side of the sofa takes advantage of window views, while wicker baskets add texture and echo the natural birch tone of the shelving.

White Desk in a Modern Study

In a departure from the lively colours in the rest of the home, the bathroom is an oasis of calm, with white walls, floor and tub.

Kudos to homeowners Chantal and Rob Watkins, who tackled the major renovation of their home themselves, creating a fun, stylish family home in the process.
