In an Old House in Melbourne…

…that was covered in vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.

Unfortunately I do not get to share Madeline’s home today, but rather a splendid Victorian in Melbourne, home to Caecilia and James Potter, a house whose facade is overflowing with character and patina. Caecilia, found of Atticus & Milo, an architecture and design firm, has renovated the house within an inch of its life, and infused its interiors with her amazing (and unexpected) sense of style. It’s fabulous, tropical, and full of the unexpected!

The dining room is quite fantastic, with an intricate chandelier and ornate fireplace panelings, but the mirror mosaic surprises you, seeming less like a mirror and more like a painting!

The pool room is one of my favorite parts, with that awesome gold pendant and all the color that the midcentury sideboard and book stack bring to the room.

You have probably seen this bathroom floating around Pinterest – the bowler hat pendants are pretty unusual.

This original entrance adorns the facade, with the perfect amount of grandeur and playfulness to match the interiors within. It would be pretty amazing to grow up in a house like this, wouldn’t it? 

Happy Monday!
