This Remodeled Mid-Century Modern Home Was Given A Contemporary Update From Chelsea Hing Interior Design Studio

Chelsea Hing Interior Design Studio has given a contemporary new vision to a mid-century modern home in Brighton, Australia, that had been left untouched since the 1950s.

The centrally located light-drenched courtyard showcases the updated white theme that can be found inside and out. Over time, vines will create a shaded outdoor space that’s furnished with planters and simple furniture.

Inside, there are clean lines and a breezy-ness which was achieved by removing all the complicated design elements. The living room is defined by a large dark-colored rug, while wood boxes have been used to create a coffee table.

In the master bathroom, black tiles cover walls, while round mirrors hang above white vanities with under-mount sinks. On the opposite wall, there’s a large oval freestanding bathtub. A doorway between the vanities opens to reveal the walk-in closet that showcases dark wood cabinetry with metal and leather drawer pulls.
