Get the Look of This Modern + Cozy Australian Green House
When we think of biophilic interiors – spaces designed to cultivate our connection to the outdoors – Drawing Room Architecture’s Brunswick Green House in Melbourne, Australia, is one of the first that comes to mind. We absolutely adore the Brunswick house for its modern yet approachable design, and the welcoming brightness it exudes. From the plentiful natural light and earthy textures to its asparagus green accents, houseplant inhabited corners, and mixed materials, the Brunswick house encapsulates beautifully simple, green living in the modern age. While we all (sadly) can’t live in a Brunswick Green House, we curated a collection of Green House inspired finds that’ll get you pretty close. You can always find more modern and biophilic decor in the Design Milk Shop.
GROOVE Pendant Light by Puik Design
A minimalist alternative to the textured fixture in the Brunswick dining room, the GROOVE Pendant Light’s classic matte white design brightens up your space while delivering an all-encompassing glow. Its powder-coated steel construction helps create an eclectic contrast against other textures and materials in your space, for an all-around stylish look. You can even find it in black, green, and navy colorways.
Dome36 White Pendant Light by Graypants, inc.
Graypants’ Dome36 Pendant Light is a splurge-worthy dupe for the textured pendant fixture in the Brunswick house. Part of their best-selling collection of scrap lights, the Dome36 is handcrafted from recycled cardboard and features precise laser cuts that deliver its tactile look. The warm, ambient light is both intimate and functional, perfect for styling over your dining table.

About A Chair 12 Side Chair by HAY
Designed by Danish designer Hee Welling for HAY, the About A Chair 12 Side Chair is a best-selling Scandinavian staple. Complete with gentle, comfy curves and rounded oak legs, the AAC 12 has a modern, unassuming elegance that upgrades any space in the house from your dining room to your personal workspace. The sculptural simplicity of the AAC 12 reflects the streamlined look of the Brunswick House’s dining space, and even comes in a soft, dusty green color to match.
Wallace Chair by Hollis + Morris
Hollis + Morris’ Wallace Chair has an ultra-slim design that’s equal parts Scandi cool and Japandi minimalism. Made in solid oak and walnut finishes, the wooden seat features organic curves that call back to the Brunswick House’s biophilic look. Meanwhile the powder-coated metal legs add a modern touch. Bonus: every chair is made to order, so you get the satisfaction of knowing it was specially made for you!
Copenhague 20 Dining Table by HAY
Made in collaboration with brothers and designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, HAY’s Copenhague 20 Dining Table offers chic, Scandinavian simplicity in a timeless design made for every day. Topped with laminate, oak veneer, or nanotech linoleum that’s easy to clean, the Copenhague is thoughtfully designed to withstand spills and mealtime messes. The table’s round shape and petite profile make it a perfect match for small spaces too! To get that Brunswick House look, we’d recommend the Oak finish.
Modern Tabletop Accessories
Concrete Centerpiece Bowls by Pretti.Cool
If you’re inspired by the Brunswick House’s clever mix of materials and want to try putting it into practice, this Concrete Centerpiece Bowl by Pretti.Cool is a great place to start. The weighty concrete material and speckled design of the White Terrazzo colorway helps create a beautiful contrast against the natural grain on wooden dining tables, adding brightness and levity to your tabletop.
Clear Velasca 1L Carafe by Obakki
Obakki’s Clear Velasca Carafe is a functional and fashionable addition to your tabletop. Handcrafted and mouth-blown by third generation Italian artisans, the carafe embodies a modern, timeless shape and traditional techniques – all in a durable, 100% borosilicate glass (one of the most resilient glass types around!). We love the way the crystal-clear glass catches and reflects light on your tabletop, and the fact that its classic shape doubles as a vase too!
HINGE Side Table by Puik Design
Made of two interlocking steel plates, the HINGE Side Table creates a beautiful contrast against the other natural tones and textures at play in the Brunswick Green House. It’s available in a range of fun colors and sizes, but we love the large bright red HINGE Side Table as a coffee table for the graphic pop of color and modern edge it brings to your living space. Plus, its modern geometric paneled design is the ideal counterpart to the soft biophilic curves seen throughout the space.
Plush Cushions + Throws
Interconnection Chambray Pillow by Jillian Rene Decor
Inspired by founder Jillian Rene’s love of mid-century modern design, Jillian Rene Decor’s Interconnection Chambray Pillow adds a soft neutral touch to your couch and living space. The heather grey chambray linen makes this modern cushion cover as timeless as it is soft, while the graphic disconnected dashes add a layer of unique visual intrigue. Like all of Jillian Rene Decor’s handmade textiles, the Interconnection Pillow is specially made to order – ensuring that your cushion cover is totally unique!
Bitmap Tokyo Pink Blanket by Zuzunaga
Part of what makes the Brunswick Green House so endearing are the thoughtful pops of color – they give the space a more eclectic, lived-in look that just works. We love the pink and red color palette on the Brunswick’s living room throw blanket, so we’re counting on Zuzunaga’s Bitmap Tokyo Pink Blanket for the same playful effect. Inspired by a photo taken from the Tokyo Tower, Zuzunaga turns memorable locales into fashionable geometric textiles you’ll cherish for a lifetime. The Tokyo Blanket is sustainably made in Spain using high-quality merino wool for unparalleled warmth and coziness.

Shunan Side Table by Puik Design
Inspired by China’s serene forests, Puik Design’s Shunan Side Table combines organic textures with modern man-made materials. The strong steel legs form a flat intersected base, while the Ashwood veneer top gently curves for an elegant feel. Like the side table in the Brunswick House’s living room, the Shunan Table has an elevated, modern look that doesn’t overpower the rest of the space and creates a beautiful contrast with the lush green houseplants you’ll want to keep on its surface!
Wythe 30 Large Planter by Greenery Unlimited
Did you really think we’d help you recreate this dreamy greenhouse without recommending a planter? The Brunswick’s flourishing houseplants are an essential part of the interior’s charm – and because not just any planter will do, we recommend the Wythe 30 Planter by Greenery Unlimited to create your own at-home greenhouse. The Wythe’s classic modern design won’t ever go out of style, and the pale salmon colorway is the perfect complement to the comforting warm tones in the Green House’s living space. Bonus: the high-quality fiberglass material will last a lifetime!
DOST Lounge Chair by Puik Design
Designed by Rianne Koens for Puik Design, the DOST Lounge Chair offers a plush, comfortable design in a modern Scandinavian shape, making it a casually elegant addition to your Brunswick House-inspired space. The chair’s soft-feel and slightly angled seat allow you to sit back and lounge for hours on end with your favorite book and will quickly be considered one of the best seats in the house! Find it in a variety of bright, playful colors, and couple it with its matching footstool, here!
