Sparse Meets Stylish
Set in the city of Melbourne is the three storey Australian style apartment, non chalantly taking pride in its minimalist design. The apartment has a touch of Scandinavian aesthetic and is modelled out of a 20’s print factory. Welcome to the home of Craig Miller-Randle, the owner and creative director of MRD homes.
The apartment has an austere feel to it while the lush notes of greenery makes the home come to life. The living area is neutral, crisp and bright and the glass windows ensure that light readily streams in all day. The black beam bordering the walls augments what already seems cohesively whole. The pieces of furniture have the tonalities of charcoal and grey giving it a casual office cum home look. Now who wouldn’t want to wind up here after a long day at work?
The sleek black cladding kitchen overlooks the living area and is an urban expression of sparse meets stylish. The lower cabinetry spells convenience. The whole set up ensures that everything is well within reach.
The acrylic staircase winds up to the second storey and its sleek design keep the lower warehouse well lit. The dining area looks right out of a model home catalogue. The plants and the perpendicular mirrors makes the room geometric while the sheepskin thrown in on the dining chairs redefines texture. The singular pedant lamp definitely spreads warmth across the room.
The best part about this apartment which the owner also takes pride in is the vertical plant wall which enlivens the space. This must be the go to place for a refill of peace and perspective.
The black and white bed room space is unlike anything that you will lay your eyes upon. The bed, well bounded by a graphite framework, is symmetry at its best. The crisp white wall offers a feel of endless space. The linen, cushions and throws are the only paradox to an otherwise minimalist space. This is definitely the resting area of a hard worker.
The second storey living area cum library surprises you with some hues of teal and aqua blue. The tufty chair from MRD homes calls out to you curl up with a book and cup of coffee. The room is adorned by an artwork done by Craig himself. It tallies to the color scheme of the house while adding some personal warmth.
The house is a culmination of art, new age wood works and green planters with tonalities of black, grey, and metal. The contempo lamps and furniture gives the space a modernistic flair. This is definitely a modern day sanctuary at its best!
