This bold renovation saw a transformation of this Melbourne home. A classic street-frontage gives way to a modern extension, with a dramatic monochrome exterior facade.

Bea Lambos elevates open living with luxurious teak furnishings.

An open plan, minimal interior with a luxurious material palette boasts large windows onto the generous backyard soaked in sunshine. Windows like this are sure to be the envy of neighbouring federation-style homes, which can all too often starved of light in the darker Melbourne months. Interior designer and stylist Bea Lambos of Bea+Co was one of the trusted experts in helping this project come together. Bea selected the Forrest outdoor teak furniture range by Kett to take pride of place in the backyard.

"I love this range for it's beautiful curves and materiality."

Bea says "The Forrest range was the perfect fit for this home. A largely monotone exterior, this range was perfect in tying in the vibrant green of the landscaped garden. I love this range for it's beautiful curves and materiality - outdoor furniture doesn't have to look chunky and cumbersome to be strong and durable anymore. Like having an extension of the living space outside - super stylish and super comfortable for lazy days in the garden."
