The Australian designer Brahman Perera faced a difficult task: he had not only to come up with a logical layout for two combined terrace houses of the XIX century, but also to fill the space with objects from a very large and eclectic collection of owners. The author used soft colors, contrasting textures and laconic finishes, creating an interior that the owners will continue to complement with bright and unusual finds.

Realizing that the already existing selection of items includes very different and charismatic things, Perera painted the walls of the townhouse in a delicate shade of ivory, and covered the floors with expressive dark wood. The background turned out to be smooth, but not boring: it is set off by delicate classic baseboards and cornices, minimalist arches and luxurious wooden doors 260 cm high. The doors are folded like an accordion, allowing you to separate the dining room or quickly combine it with the living room.

The tobacco shade of the parquet board is repeated in many pieces of furniture in the living room and dining room: these are the iconic Pierre Jeanneret chairs, a monochrome fireplace with classic consoles, and a massive leather armchair in the living room. Saturated brown tones effectively contrast with warm whites, which are represented by materials of different texture: polished marble, matte plaster (lamps are made of it), tactile linen. Perera complemented the neutral architectural palette with modern furniture of deep colors and bright art objects from the owners’ collection.
