Design Inspiration | Walsh Street House

The Australian mid-century marvel that is Walsh Street House was designed by architect Robin Boyd in 1957. The home is divided into two buildings - a main house and a children's pavilion. Between the two buildings is a courtyard enclosed by a wall of dimpled glass window panes and sheltered by numerous tall, leafy trees.

Vibrant colors are in abundance throughout this home, from the artwork to the upholstery to the carpeting. It isn't often that I find myself coveting crimson carpeting, but how can I resist when I see it paired so perfectly with a black brick wall, gold-trimmed chimney piping, and floor-to ceiling windows? Walsh Street House offers a little inspiration for every design appetite, so enjoy!
