Black aluminium venetian blinds are definitely the dark horse, excuse the pun, when it comes to picking venetian blinds. Traditionally people tend to pick lighter colours like white or silver that match with everything.

Black does something very specific. It mutes the effect of an all white interior and creates depth in what might otherwise become a one dimensional white box.

The goal for this Melbourne home was to create a light spacious interior that connected to the garden. White walls complemented with wood cabinetry and polished concrete floors do exactly that.
In the kitchen a large white island provides plenty of practical preparation space while the fridge and other appliances are hidden to keep the space uncluttered. Next to the kitchen, the dining room sits on a raised wooden floor.
Two large sliding doors open up from the dining room onto the garden where a mix of wood and concrete steps lead down into the yard.
In the lounge, light floods in through a large window net to a quiet reading nook. Above the window hang two large white roller blinds which tuck away neatly during the day and provide privacy at night.
Upstairs in the main bedroom, the closet is tucked away behind a wooden wall next to which sits a large window covered in black aluminium venetian blinds. The blinds provide reprieve from the harsh Australian sun keeping the interior cool and light.
