Detail Dominated Interiors Under 45 Sqm (500 Sq Ft)
It’s the details that dominate these two modern home interiors, each measuring just under 45 square metres (500 square feet). Wall decor is a plain white affair and the larger furniture silhouettes are kept simple, which gives smaller features their moment to shine. Our first tour explores small bursts of burgundy accent colour and classic art reproductions under a rustic wooden ceiling, all stretched into a long and narrow home layout. Our second featured home employs clear glass partition walls to open up the floor plan, and light wood tone elements to bring in a soft natural vibe. Floor plans included at the end of each tour.

Behind the grey tones of the smallpedestal dining table and modern dining chairs, burgundy panel doors add a column of colour detail that acts as a zoning technique for the nook. A custom banquette seat pales into the wall colour to keep the space feeling open and uncluttered.

A burgundy entryway bench puts a beat of colour by the front door, which doubles as a side table for the lounge. A couple of coffee table books are stacked up next to a storage basket for gloves and keys, marking the dual purpose of the piece.
Tonal red tiles spread the room’s accent colour into the smallgalley kitchen, which gives the white scheme some welcome warmth.
A chunky wooden breakfast bar on slender black legs makes an unusual feature. Metal kitchen bar stools complement the dark elegance of the bespoke piece.
