The Tiles On This Fireplace Surround Give It The Appearance Of A Woven Pattern

Australian architecture and design firm Studio Griffiths has completed the remodel of a Hamptons-style property to a modern English farmhouse in the Victorian town of Main Ridge.

A modern living room includes a fireplace surround made from Japanese inspired tiles.

One notable stand-out feature of the interior, which is mostly black and white, is the fireplace in the living room.

The eye-catching fireplace surround is covered in Japanese-inspired tiles from INAX, with the gray tile adding a textural design element.

Modern black shelving and cabinetry can be found on either side of a focal fireplace with a silvery-grey tiled surround.

Flanking the fireplaces are black shelves and cabinets. The dark cabinets also help to blend in with the black television.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the property…

The clients’ vision was to have their main home in the country, where sprawling land, a vineyard, and green open spaces offer a retreat for their children and grandchildren.

The remodel included all-new bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, and updating all the bedrooms, study, and TV/Music room.

In the kitchen, there are minimalist white cabinets with integrated appliances, as well as a large black island that measures in at almost 10 feet (3m), and includes a black stone countertop that overhangs to provide room for seating.

The French oak boards have also been used to line the walls of the bedrooms, creating a rustic design element that adds to the overall modern farmhouse look.
