Balancing two distinct eras and creating a cohesive design in one home is a difficult task. For the Australian interior design firm MIM Design, the harmony came from understanding the needs of the clients and working with the architect hired to design the additional square footage. Lead Interior Designer Kristina Reeve of MIM Design and Lead Architect Emma Tulloch of Nixon Tulloch Fortey Architecture worked together to create a space that blends old and new.
The duo set about transforming the two-story Edwardian-era home from dark and cramped (typical of houses built during that era) to lively and full of natural light. MIM carefully curated the interiors to work with the architecture, with a scheme that played on color contrasts and the light of the newly opened-up space.
