There’s a certain liberation that comes with your children growing older and the owners of this Melbourne home expressed theirs by treating themselves to a gloriously grown-up living room makeover. Beneath a soaring 6.8m ceiling, interior designer Aaron Wong has zoned the space cleverly. Curvaceous sofas rest upon a custom-made ivory and black rug, softening the right angles in the room. Peripheral seating and a hutch help to balance the generous room and an irreverent portrait hangs over the fire, reinforcing the adults-only theme. “My clients love the crisp look of a tuxedo and I’ve translated this aesthetic for them,” says Aaron.
