ELWOOD HOUSE | MELBOURNE, VIC

June 14th, 2018


Words by Eloise Poole

Located close to the sea in Elwood, Victoria, this family home is a relaxing space perfectly balancing elegance and luxury with comfort. The brief to Matyas Architects and stylist Nina Provan was to create a spaces of casual calm and relaxation for the clients' growing young family.

Interior stylist Nina Provan has filled the spaces with a combination of textures and materials to create a home that is not only luxurious but also comfortable. Natural Carrara marble adorns the fireplace and kitchen benches, oak timber floors line the living spaces and the cement rendered walls of the interior add a certain polish to the home. The addition of the jewel toned velvet sofas and textured carpets give the warmth and ambiance the owners were looking for.

The layout of the property was designed to maximise natural light and garden views from the bedrooms and living room and the open-plan living area definitely takes full advantage of the light streaming through.
