Earthy and Modern Family Living

Newly married couple Tess and Alex came to us with their first home, a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

Their apartment was on the smaller side and had limited budgets, so we had to think creatively on how to maximise the space and make it feel bigger!

Our clients were also after a space that included a connection to nature and “at least one blue piece”.

We went for a Modern Australian feel, bringing the earthy colours of the Australian landscape inside as well as creating a backdrop of greys and whites, to give the space a modern and airy feel. We added in pops of Australiana colours, as well as the beautiful ocean blue couch that was on our clients ‘must-have’ list and fit perfectly with our theme.

The details:

The ‘one blue piece’ was this gorgeous sofa in a beautifully textured ocean blue fabric. We layered with a custom ottoman in a sage green inspired by the Australian forest and nested next to a sculptural black timber side table. The cushions and artwork were chosen to tie back to the couples love of nature.

The tan and green elements added to the earthy feel, while the black moments grounded the look back to create a contemporary style.
