colour interplay – Melbourne

Home to a young family of five, this revived Edwardian beach-side home located in Middle Park, Melbourne was once drab and dated, this home has been completely transformed by Sisalla Interior Design. With the clients hailing from Finland and Australia, Sisalla aimed to inject the spirit of both countries, extending and refreshing the interiors making a departure from the brown tones from the 60’s to a fresh and vibrant palette.
When navigating through the different rooms in the home, it appears like each room has a slightly different approach which works cohesively together.
Given the importance placed by the clients to have their heritage and countries of origin incorporated into the design, the colour blue is featured quite a lot throughout the interior. As one of the main colours on the Finnish flag, it works not only to create a striking palette but also adds the personal touch the clients desired.
The layering of different tones and materials, such as the polished concrete floors, bold wall colours and accents of light timber, ensures the interior never lacks warmth or character, while the recent extension is softened with a backdrop of pastel colours and black furniture to bring about a more mature atmosphere. This playful yet sophisticated feel provides the perfect balance for both the adults and children of the home.
