sophisticated simplicity in a williamstown home

This beautiful Williamstown house, with its interiors designed by Fiona Lynch, overlooks Melbourne’s shipping ports. Location can certainly influence a home’s appeal, but it’s the sophisticated simplicity that makes this house stand out.

A simple monochromatic kitchen with clean lines.

As Lynch explains, “Concrete, solid oak and stone were the primary materials—all complimented by the linear graphic lines of the detailed joinery.”

The fireplace wall, which extends from the kitchen, features the same stone in the surround as that in the backsplash.

Unexpected colour in some areas contrasts to the sober use of materials.

Concrete, glass and steel are moderated by the introduction of sculptural wood totems.

To complete this project, furniture and art have been curated and chosen for their iconic form, texture or colour to complement this highly sophisticated interior.
