Carter Williamson Architects created this small home with interiors that seem to flow seamlessly right into the great outdoors. This Sydney, Australia house design features a massive sliding glass wall that lets natural light flood the space. We love this sweet spot, outfitted with a window seat – the perfect place to read, chat with friends on the phone or in person, or daydream solo. At the foot of the window, the dining table offers an always pleasant view, regardless which seat you’ve snagged. Directly across the dining nook, the kitchen features clean, contemporary finishes. Sure, the mirrored backsplash may be a magnet for fingerprints and sink ‘n stove splatter, but we love the way it doubles the amount of daylight as well as the view. But, this great window space couldn’t be banished into the kitchen for enjoyment only at meal times. Thus, the designers transformed this space into a kitchen/dining/living room combination by mounting book shelves above the window and outfitting the space with not only the kitchen and dining room essentials, but also a cozy living room chair that invites you kick back. And, after a hearty meal, you don’t have to go very far to enjoy some well-earned R&R! At the far end of this multi-use space, which is the heart of the home, the wall opens up to reveal a walkout to an outdoor patio.
