Well hello there, fellow home lovers! I’ve got a very fun and creative home for you today in Belgrave. I am not gonna keep you waiting, because let’s face it we always want to get inside and have a sneaky peek, and see how these people live. So let’s go do it!
This home is chock full of personality. There is so much to love about this home. Not only is the location itself, absolutely breathtaking, I mean you’re literally living amongst the trees here. We’ve heard kookaburras, we’ve seen parrots, we’ve got chickens out the back. This location is just amazing, but aside from that this home. Personality everywhere. There’s an artwork in every single corner. Every single space you look there’s a beautiful ceramic or trinket.
There are plants everywhere you go and I love indoor plants. I’m a massive fan of plants. To be honest with you, plants just make everything look ten times better. I don’t know how many plants there are in this home, but there’s a hell-of-a-lot of them. The owner is a self-proclaimed plant tragic. There ain’t nothing tragic about indoor plants, by the way. But, I love that she’s got this many plants in her home. She just says that she loves all the different shapes and all the different personalities that come from all these plants and they just make her happy and do you know what? I’m down with that.
“The plants really do make this home. I mean, they really are in every different nook and cranny that you can see. There are hanging plants, there are terrariums, there are plants even in the mobiles. There are plants everywhere. There are different sizes, there are different heights and to be honest with you, when you’re styling your home, plants are a really great styling tool because they can pretty much make any space look good.”
You can tell that the owners really love handmade pieces. There are so many incredible pieces in this home. The handmade ceramics, there are also some handmade furniture pieces as well. The dining table, the desk, the shelves in the kitchen, the bed, the desk in the kid’s rooms. I mean, there are so many pieces that have been handmade by either the owners or friends and they’ve also picked up a lot of really cool op shop finds as well and they’ve paired that with some really affordable furniture, which looks great.
The owners here, they are creatives and you can just tell they’ve got a really good eye for detail. They know colour, they know what will work and they’ve just combined the most amazing tones. We’ve got to talk about the colour in that kitchen. That dusty pink! I didn’t think I’d be that obsessed with pink tiles, but they are just so nice. They’ve got that really gorgeous charcoal grout. They were all hand done by the owners as well. There’s a lot of love and a lot of work that’s gone into making this home beautiful. They contrast beautifully with that blue dark teal cabinetry and there’s that nice splash of white and gold. It works really well. It modernises the space, but it still ties into that fun, colourful art vibe that we got going on through here.
There are so many open spaces here and there’s so much light coming in from those beautiful windows, but at the same time it doesn’t feel too big, it’s very cosy and especially that back living area as well, with that fireplace. It’s a really beautiful cosy area to be and I think probably one of the nicest rooms in the home. But I gotta say, that kitchen space that is truly something special. It really does feel like the heart of the home.
“The sloped ceilings are amazing! So this home itself was an original home from like the ’70s or ’80s. The owners didn’t have to do that much to it, other than just a few cosmetic changes and just painting a few areas and mainly just fixing up that kitchen, but the bones of this building are just spectacular. Those exposed timber beams, they are awesome. I love them. They really set the tone.”
The house is on a slope, so it does have these really nice slopes, different levels, and layers. It’s a really nice actual perspective when you’re up on the upper level where the bedrooms are looking down over that living area, it’s all so connected. It feels just so friendly and warm. It’s such a happy family home.
It’s pretty rare to get like a good-sized garden in Melbourne, but this has got more than that. Not only do you have a garden out the back, but you just got that woodpile, the chicken coop and there’s even a veggie patch down the front. There’s so much space. I can’t even imagine what it would be like being a kid growing up here. It’s so incredibly beautiful. Literally everywhere you turn in this home there’s something to take a photo of. I’ve literally gone around and Instagrammed this entire place! Every single corner, vignette, there are some really nice styled pieces and you can just tell again the owner has a beautiful eye for detail. Everything just seems to have a story. I mean, just the mugs alone make drinking tea a beautiful experience and that’s what this home is, it’s a true experience. This home is just 100% genuine, it’s filled with personality and is a true reflection of the creative people that live here.
