Time running out to view Midwestern-inspired design

Oswald Homes will be closing the doors to its multi-generational Oak Park display at Nedlands this month, handing it back to the owners.

Open since February, the Oak Park has shown the public design inspired by the urban prairie style made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright in the Midwestern United States during the early 20th century.

Oswald Homes Principal Designer Brook Leber said the design demonstrated a layout ideal for a multi-generational family.

“Nestled on the hill overlooking parklands, this house is grounded on the site with an abundance of natural light and use of quality materials and textures throughout to create an exceptional space that could happily fit in a leafy Chicago suburb,” he said.

Throughout the exterior and interior of the home, bold and neutral colours are presented.

Dark oak floors are combined with taupe stone-look porcelain tiles and feature Caesarstone statuario maximus – a marble-inspired design made for a stylish kitchen island benchtop.

“The exterior colours are stoney and neutral to allow the windows and the stone to be the standout features, while dark window frames border the views from every room,” Mr Leber said.

“A monochromatic mix of taupes, greys and deep inky blues in the furniture and decorating are also used.

“Marble and natural stone has been used in many pieces to create a feeling of substance alongside many velvets, timber and leather inclusions.”

The bright and airy open-plan kitchen, dining and living room area is joined at the heart of the home by an adjoining theatre.

“The volume of these rooms, combined with the natural light from the large windows to the backyard, work together to create a sophisticated yet welcoming and relaxed space,” Mr Leber said.

The Oak Park is located at 63 Melvista Avenue, Nedlands and is open Saturdays and Sundays from 2-4pm or by appointment until its doors close for the final time Sunday November 18.
