Tour an Australian Designer’s Modern-Meets-Traditional Home

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Jess Hunter takes viewers through her new-construction home in the southern highlands of New South Wales, Australia. She shows how a galvanized metal roof, painted wood siding and brick on the exterior conformed the architecture to the heritage neighborhood’s rules. Meanwhile, an open layout and minimalist kitchen with black cabinets modernize the interiors.

Hunter also discusses how she used oversize pendant lights and a centrally located iron fireplace and chimney to create zones in the open-plan living areas. A polished concrete floor was ground down to reveal the inner aggregate that Hunter specified herself, and which resembles an eye-catching dark terrazzo. Linen drapes and a linen sectional help soften the surface in the living area.

Can you tell me where to find these light fixtures, I have been looking for something like this for over a year. Oversized, a variety of shapes AND made from a material to absorb sound. - well done! Thank you,

Beautiful and so restful. I have to ask...where's the coffeemaker? Appliances get out of hand but since I am always cooking I'm hauling them out to the counter too often. I finally added a pull down hideaway at the end of my counter which sure helps! I have to be practical...it's my nature.

Love the drama in this house. Couldn’t get the audio so perhaps it explained why the table was sometimes black and other times natural wood.

Breathtaking!! Such careful consideration of how all the materials play off of each other. It also looks like an easy life house. Nothing would be ruined by muddy paws. Sophisticated choices, very stylish. I'm sure the butler's pantry contains all the functional stuff. Great design.
