Melbourne-based interior design studio The Stella Collective approach each of their projects through the lens of human experiences; how we work, eat, play and most importantly, how we connect. It’s written in their ethos; “It’s our instinct to analyse every last detail of a design to ensure comfort and wellbeing is at the heart of everything.”
Tucked away on Victoria’s coastline, in the small town of Mt Martha, is a home underpinned by these two principles: “comfort” and “wellbeing”. The owners, a design-savvy, always on-the-go family from Melbourne, wanted somewhere they could slow down and be present, somewhere to be. The Stella Collective have ensured this through a coalescence of calming materials and organic curves – from which a sense of ritual and groundedness surely unfolds. “Our creation is a pilgrimage dedicated to nature, simplicity and exotica,” The Stella Collective founder Hana Hakim says.
