Bare it all

0118254434eec0f9d27991f9c65185e5 f110EVERYONE SHOULD ADD a certain element of "risqué" into their everyday lives. There’s nothing more invigorating than showering under the morning sun and the owners of this fascinating home will be able to enjoy that experience every day. One of the more unique design points to this property is the massive ensuite featuring a large glass wall.

Before the renovation this home could easily be lived in but the design aesthetics were dated. There was no real "spunk" and nothing that particularly inspired a smile when the owners first started their day. Now the design features high-end materials, an inviting colour scheme and a functional design. Seeking a look both contemporary and bold, the owners approached Russell Brooks who brought Perth Designer Felicia Olsen of Lifestyle Design on board and asked her to weave some magic.

Olsen credits Brooks with much of the success of the project. "Russell played and integral part in the design process and deserves a lot of credit," she says. "I have worked with him on several projects now and have a great respect for his abilities – so much so that I have commissioned him to build my dream home."

The owners wanted a more open-plan layout incorporated into their home and to allow the outdoors in where possible. This was the beginning of a complete overhaul for the quaint little place the owners call home. "To begin with there were quite a few structural changes that needed to take place," Explains Felicia. "A full wall that enclosed the staircase was taken away and an open stainless steel balustrade was installed. This immediately increased the dining area as well as opened up the whole section of the home around the stairs."

This one change successfully gave the interior a modern vibe and allowed a lot more natural light to flow into the central area of the home. "On the second level, the floor of the living area was extended and a new balustrade fitted," says Felicia. "The next step was demolishing the original wall of the ensuite and adding two supporting walls to the glass back wall that we constructed." Bringing the sunshine in has certainly been achieved with the glass wall of the ensuite and this fascinating space is Brooks’ ingenious design. Overlooking the void area in the centre of the home, the ensuite enjoys privacy from peeping Toms so the owners can indulge in the sanctuary of their own secluded oasis.

Designed for two, the shower wall has a double shower heads set against a backdrop of mosaic tiles. Frosted-glass doors lead into the bathroom from the inside and once opened you can see through the double vanity with twin cube basins. The toilet suite is hidden behind a privacy wall. "Both the ensuite and the void area we have created look stunning," says Felicia. "When you walk in through the entrance of the home you can actually see the void or outside courtyard and this has produced a significant visual impact."

Designed for a culinary whiz, the kitchen beckons to all with its fiery red splashback complementing the deep shades of the laminate cabinetry. A Caesar Stone benchtop is the perfect contemporary accompaniment to the modern stainless steel appliances and the outstanding feature canopy. Bamboo floors have been laid throughout the living areas of the home and nearly every wall has been painted in China White. The bedroom is an exception, with Aalto’s Cut the Mustard selected to give the room an edge of funk. New furniture enhances the fresh interior of the home and window treatments ensure no area has been left out.
