The Home of Interior Designer Charis James
The South Yarra home of AKI Design founder Charis James lifts cues from the typical Parisian apartment. The main bedroom at the front of the 1890s terrace is doused in chocolate-toned limestone paint, setting it apart from the rest of the home. It’s here where Charis admits she feels the most at peace. “Our bedroom makes you feel as though you’re in a boutique hotel somewhere in Italy or Spain,” she says. The limestone paint texture creates depth, while the white skirting boards and ceiling outline the painted walls, highlighting heritage detailing within the space.
