Quiet Monochrome: Mindaneo Court by Design of Wonder

With a restricted palette of monochrome,
and a fabulous use of texture, 
this Edwardian home has been extended 
& reworked to create a sense of calm and quiet.
Beautiful detailing - the result of considered thinking.
It's the work of the young Melbourne design team,
and it was their first commission.
Their first??? 
I just wonder where they will go from here!

    oh that kitchen is perfect - love the stools! what an amazing FIRST job! wow!

  2. And the gorgeous stools are double trouble too - with the mirror in front of them. Fun stuff! 

  3. I do love me a good, simple-yet-stunning interior.
    The doors (whether they be wood or windowed) are my fav in this house.
    Oh, and the bathroom with those incy-wincy tiles.
    Oops, can't forget to say I also love the floorboards (perfect colour!!), the bedroom with the spread and woven basket at end .. and the drapes. Those drapes have helped me in my search.

    thanks Virginia (-:

    ps. the restaurant post was a doozy - have jotted it down for our next big trip to Melbourne (-:

  4. Hi Linda! 
    yep, the curtains are rather good, I concur. They drape beautifully. 
    And thrilled to have inspired you to visit PM24 with yesterday's post. Well worth a try. 

  5. Wow, wow, and wow!

    they certainly will go far and far.

    that is a talented design over.

    I wish for them to come to my house and make it over

    have a lovely day - beautiful photos and post - thank you

    nice! i was starting to question my all white interior for the new house, but this has given me confidence to stick with it!

  9. Haha! Well yes there is a time and a place for both, I reckon. Colour is exciting and dynamic, but all white is restful. Both are beautiful!

    Hello Virginia:
    A very brave, but highly successful, decision to go with the same colour scheme [if colour is the right word] throughout. We think that it works extraordinarily well.

  11. I have an all white interior, more by luck than judgement... it inspires me to keep my home clean and clutter free. It's my first home that's felt calm and peaceful.
