The secluded Pool House and Spa on the banks of in Montana is a perfect example of this fusion as its cool exterior and relaxing interior are inspired by classic Japanese style.

The design of the house was conceptualized to ensure that it will serve the young family for the next couple of decades even as its needs start to rapidly grow. Five bedrooms and bathrooms on the top level and flexible outdoor spaces that extend the living area outside complete this exquisite Melbourne residence.
The colors are kept as simple and neutral as possible to ensure that the focus remains firmly on the furnishings used and the style that they bring in. The classic Barcelona daybed and the cozy Eames lounger bring in that unmistakable mid-century flair even as a walnut wood accent wall and artwork add visual and textural contrast.
