Sisalla Interior Design has recently completed a new project in Toorak, Melbourne.

House in Toorak, Melbourne

The client is very social and family orientated, they wanted the house where they could entertain effortlessly for their family and friends, and also areas where they could enjoy comfortably on their own. This developed into ‘public’ and ‘private’ zones. The public areas of the entry, kitchen, living and dining areas needed to be effortlessly luxurious and also function well for daily life and the needs of entertaining.

The client wanted an open plan layout however they didn’t want a cold minimalist house, so a balance was needed for warmth and softness. Textured travertine stone combined with dark timber and elegant black steel details creates interest. A backdrop of sheer curtains wraps around the floor to ceiling windows gives softness and movement with the breeze.

A large butlers panty allows for mess to be hidden and the kitchen to look effortlessly chic.
The ground floor has a home office off the entry hall, an open concept kitchen, living and dining area with a butlers pantry hidden from the main area. There is a powder room and a spacious laundry. An alfresco space with undercover outdoor dining and bbq comes off the living areas large sliding doors.

The spaces are connected with a feature staircase wrapping around a central lift.

The private realm is for the couple to relax together. The library features a hidden surprise: the sliding of a bookcase into a bedroom on one side, and also sliding on the other side to conceal the television.

The master bedroom is truly a retreat. The ensuite design is luxuriously neutral with textural interest in the stone mosaic tiles and sheer curtains.

The interior design for this new house is important as it creates a sense of warmth and ‘place’ for it’s occupants. Large new houses can feel cold and unwelcoming due to the large open plan and large spans of white walls.

This project shows that in a new build, with large open areas it can still feel welcoming and comfortable for the client. The space is flooded with light and fresh air through the large windows, skylights and openable front door panels.
