When I first stumbled upon the apartment of Dan and Paul in The Design Files I was smitten; plywood and wood was just about everywhere. I kept scrolling down to see the rest of the home photos but the material pattern just kept repeating. And in a wow kind of way. The place, dressed in whites and neutrals, furnished with contemporary pieces and strategic fixture choices is a bliss to the eye. That thanks to Clare Cousins, architect and friend of the couple, who transformed an old and somehow not working apartment in Melbourne, into a fresh and completely functional contemporary space for the family.

Above: The unrefined plywood kitchen gets a glamour uplift from the golden sink faucet. I completely adore the obvious contradiction here!
Above: No space is wasted in the apartment. A small lofty mezzanine above the entrance door serves as an extra storage cavity.
Above: The master bedroom is literally built inside a plywood cube so instead of a big luxurious room the result feels like a cozy hideout nook. I definitely wouldn't say no to that!
Above: Golden fixtures are to be found in the bathroom as well, where blend in with the graphically places all white tiles and create an effortless stark glamour atmosphere.
