Set on a beautiful leafy street, the Toorak residence, designed by Adele Bates Studio, balances heritage architecture and minimalist interiors with a playful and vibrant design approach. Curated to surprise and visually delight, the interior spaces are designed as both home and gallery. Wall art and furnishings have been given equal consideration in with regards to the aesthetic properties they introduce to each space. Many of the furniture pieces are sculptural in form yet practical in purpose, whilst also a visual source of wonderment, much like the wall art.
Wall artworks are deliberately impactful; quirky and mesmerising, creating a variety of focal points within the home. The design and styling elements adapt throughout the spaces dependent on the function and purpose of each space. In designing and styling the home designers recognized that they wanted different experiential factors to play into the various living areas (Published with Bowerbird).
