Glamorous, elegant, tailored – all three words come to mind when looking at this beautiful Melbourne interior designed by Travis Walton Architecture. An Australian-based architect, Travis Walton is known for his blend of contemporary and creative design with a luxurious feel. This space truly reads that way. Once a traditional heritage home in South Yarra, Walton has transformed this interior into a 3-bedroom home filled to the brim with modern touches. The inspiration for the architect? Manhattan.
“As a home, this space needs to balance elegance and comfort. The bold, minimalist furniture and architecture brings a sense of refinement and masculinity, complimented by rich textiles, strong patterns and warm natural light filtering through from the skylight and courtyard to give a sense of comfort and cultivated charm.” – Travis Walton
In addition to bold, masculine style, art and color are also used to great effect in Walton’s design. Jewel-toned shades are used to add vivid color to each room – a bright blue, geometric rug in the home office, an upholstered chair in the living room, a deep aubergine seating nook in the bedroom. And walls have been painted in perfect shades of gray and black to allow the home’s collection of artwork to stand out. The end result is a sophisticated home that brings together the beautiful design of two striking cities, New York and Melbourne.
