A Modern Shell



I adore this house which is located in Brisbane and was designed by Owen & Vokes. However, if it were mine I would fill it inside with lots of mix matched pieces of furniture, artwork and beautiful collections of things on tables and in antique armoirs. I just love the juxtposition of modern architecture with antique/vintage furniture; probably my signature style.




I obviously do love this style of house as I was just looking in my files and I found these 2 images above as well which are very similar styles of houses to the top house. I have posted about the Krakoff's house (bottom image) before as I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Inside this house they have used a more decorated eclectic look and it looks fabulous.
