Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

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.
