15th March 2017

I spotted Llewellyn House while scanning through the Australian Interior Design Awards – a great source of inspiration with literally project after project of incredible looking houses – as it was shortlisted in the Residential Design category for 2016. The image above (by photographer Brett Boardman) caught my eye – the brick, the sliding screen that opens up that entire elevation, and then the moody hues of the interior of this space with its rich timber finishes. What’s not to love?

Last week I wrote about an amazing warehouse conversion in Melbourne, Richmond Residence, which was shortlisted in the residential decoration category of the Australian Interior Design Awards. The winners were announced on June 10 – the Richmond Residence picked up a commendation in its category – and I wanted to share another project, this time from the residential design category.

Like Richmond Residence, Double Life House is located in Melbourne, and this project also picked up a commendation. I was intrigued by its description on AIDA: “A house for two introverts living in a world of extroverts.

I first came across the Australian Interior Design Awards a few years ago, doubtless scrolling for inspiration online, and I’m pretty sure that Vogue Living was the source of that initial encounter.

This year’s winners will be announced later this week on June 10, and I couldn’t resist sharing a few photos from one of the projects listed in the residential decoration category: the Richmond Residence designed by We Are Huntly, with gorgeous photography by Brooke Holm.

I’ve been meaning to post about this fantastic project since I laid eyes on it – when I spotted Cabin 2 on the 2014 Australian Interior Design Awards shortlist for Residential Design. If you’ve been following Copperline for a while you’ll already be aware of how much I admire Australian architecture and interiors, and the AIDA list is like a goldmine of great design.

I’ll admit, black wouldn’t be the first colour I’d choose when designing a kitchen. This isn’t to say that I can’t appreciate black kitchens – I even wrote a post on the subject on Copperline on Tumblr, where I swooned over a variety of sleek designs. My first choice would be a chalky grey hue, but every so often a black kitchen crops up on Pinterest or Tumblr, or on another blog, and it stops me in my tracks. Continue Reading…
