Australia is actually not a boring continent. There are a lot of things you could see and explore. The architectural development is no different. Come join me in the state of Victoria. Moon Ponds, a Melbourne suburb is home for a beautiful Victorian-era home. You could always leave the home be. But the homeowner apparently had something different in mind. It is understandable, of course. We love the look of the house, but he is the one who lives in it.
While the original building and interior of the house were pretty, the homeowner felt an urge, if not a need, to change something. He figured the problem could be solved by hiring an interior designer who got him and understood what he wanted. So Peter Mosticon from Vivid Edge Design came into the picture. The idea that came up afterward was to introduce the Victorian house to modernity by incorporating a touch of modernity into it.
The final result was a residential place that got the best of the old and the new and mixed them. The outcome was a very unique and dramatic environment in form and function. Many of the old furnishings and fixtures were left behind and with the extra space he had from the removal of some others, he inserted the modern touch through simple lines and high functionality. The colors used were very modern black and white even silver.
Glasses and mirrors were put into their best use. Not only for their obvious functions, but also for accent and accessory. A mini pool was added to the land for simple swimming need. The house has five bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It was sold by the owner for AUD 1.73 million in 2012.
