One peek inside this stunning (and converted!) Melbourne space, and we were instantly captivated by the streamlined details of the decor. With inspired accents at every turn and an unbelievable number of impressively upcycled furnishings, there were no shortage of covetable decor elements.
A whitewashed interior sets the scene for a statement-making stained glass surrounded, lending the framework for the bold front door. Intricately-detailed moldings offer a classically elegant backdrop for the contemporary aesthetic of the space.
A playful piece sets a welcoming tone in the entry, emulating a common chard from the front door.
The all-white kitchen features a slew of organic elements and a hint of industrialized design. A fearless combo of rustic floorboards, solid cabinets, basic subway tiles, and a metal-pressed ceiling design prove that there’s no reason to stick to an exclusive concept or surface.
The best way to unify an eclectic arrangement of decor elements and styles? Oversized wall art of a complementary palette will definitely do the trick.
There are no shortage of charming accents in this cheerful setup, where a delicate wallpaper balances out the array of inspired details and vibrant works of art.
Lessons learned? One man’s trash is another’s treasure. The stunning leather couch was an actual a freebie, while the wooden desk and chair were roadside rescues.
Flags make for the best wall hangings. Especially in a whitewashed space of vintage-inspired elements.
