South Yarra Residence

This newly purchased 1800's property situated in the leafy inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra was a decorator's delight to furnish. We began by giving the shell a makeover replacing cabinetry in the kitchen, dining and living areas, polishing the intricate parquetry flooring, painted throughout the home using Chalk Dust by Wattyl as well as laying decadently soft carpets across the top floor bedrooms and office spaces. Not afraid of the use of colour, our client's wishes were to create a sophisticated, homely space that was suitable to the climate where they could settle down after many years of living in the U.A.E. for business. 

"The amazing team at Watermelon Red, led by Briana, put together the design brief for both our beach house and our Melbourne residence. The use of colour, fabric, textures and artwork was put together to provide many different spaces in both the houses.

Most importantly as well as great design the team are wonderful about itemised spreadsheets, managing installation including all the tradespeople and even the removal of the rubbish. I've recommended Watermelon Red to family and friends and everyone has been very happy with the end result and their service along the way."
