Not far from our favourite breakfast institution Kettle Black, this Victorian heritage home in Melbourne’s South Yarra recently undertook a transformation to rival that of Bruce Jenner – thanks to commissioned architect Travis Walton.
In a prior life this home was a single fronted, dark Victorian house is now a modern home with an elegant edge. Taking inspiration from New York’s Manhattan, Travis Walton and his team have reconfigured this once dark, poky home into a striking inner city retreat where a sophisticated, classic style prevails.
While in Melbourne it was impossible to ignore the renovation TV show, The Block, earlier this year, readers abroad may not understand when we say that this home represents the true South Yarra opulence the judges were banging on about all season (don’t worry the contestants did not really understand either). You may also recognise the ‘front room’ below as a finalist in the Dulux Colour Awards.
