A Schiaparelli-pink acrylic door pops at the entrance to the main bedroom of this newly extended Melbourne home. “The bold shot of colour juxtaposes with the serenity of the room beyond,” says interior designer Mardi Doherty. As the footprint is modest, the bed is recessed into cabinetry, with built-in bedside tables merging into full-height wardrobes to maximise storage. A pair of pendant lights by Daniel Emma flank the bed, a playful element in the retreat-like space that offers tranquil garden views. “The bedroom feels like an escape – a place where we can really unwind,” say the owners.
