Rad retro style | West Australian
The excitement and style of the American panhandle was brought to Perth with Shelford’s latest show home – The Miami.
The influence is evident from the get-go, with the facade featuring a mix of black tile and white plaster matched with natural-toned wood.
A wide and long window and door in the front hint at the immense space that is inside.
Shelford Quality Homes interior and architectural designer Rui Rosa said the Miami expresses a cool retro style, where vintage art deco architecture meets modern sophistication with a touch of glam.
“Miami’s style is eclectic and sophisticated,” he said.
“It fits perfectly into our suburb of Perth, where a relaxed lifestyle reigns, but our life demands a bit of fun and luxury – perfect style in a perfect location indeed.”
Curved elements are found throughout the house, including the arches – a notable room being the one with mixed glass artwork. In addition to adding interest, the glass also allows a constant flow of natural light to the utility room and kitchen.
The kitchen features a curved suspended ceiling, the shape of which is reflected below through the inclusion of a smooth island bench.
“The massive, curved island bench makes an elegant design statement in the home,” Mr. Rosa said.
“Not only does this increase the storage space of the cabinets, but the design also provides additional workspace and serves as a place to eat, sit and gather.”
Comprised of an array of modern appliances, the kitchen also offers an abundance of storage options, including a pull-out pantry.
An extension of this area is the back kitchen, which could easily be transformed into a study area thanks to the smart charging station, allowing your children to do their homework nearby while you prepare dinner.
Thanks to the open plan layout of the main area of the house, the dining room and living room flow out from the kitchen to provide flawless entertainment opportunities.
Outside there is a covered alfresco – a great base for dining in the warmer months.
Spend those family movie nights in the designated home theater, offering ample space to comfortably relax and experience the ultimate movie theater experience.
Throughout the house there are pops of color, juxtaposed with more ubiquitous neutral and natural tones.
“The Miami-style design embraces a white-on-white background injected with color through upholstery, accessories, glamorous tiles and tropical wallpaper for the Miami Beach feel,” said Rosa.
“We love the beautiful explosion of bright colors and the eclectic feel. “Every time we walk through the house it makes us smile.”
The sleeping and lounging areas of the house are well equipped with luxury amenities and features.
The parents’ retreat at the front of the house features a walk-in closet and a resort-style bathroom, complete with two sinks, a personalized sitting area, a spacious double shower, private toilet and a mirror Smart LED.
The three double bedrooms are equally stylish, with the bathroom they share offering smart LED mirrors with anti-fog, a magnifying mirror, music capability and adjustable LED lighting.
The Miami is open for tours on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
