A peek at world’s most livable city’s interior design chic

Share

Last week I spent a wonderful few days in Melbourne with my sister and niece. Melbourne has once again topped the list as the world’s most livable city for 2012. I can understand why.

South Yarra where we stayed was originally the home of the Wurundjeri tribe before it was settled by Europeans in the 1830s. It is home to some of Melbourne’s most prestigious residential addresses. There are many Heritage listed houses including Como House built in 1847 and Barwon house built in 1881.

A wonderful range of homes can be found in South Yarra from the richly ornamented Victoria Boom Style terrace houses in Park Street to grand Federation style homes and some fantastic Art Deco homes in Alexander Ave, Lawson Grove and Darling Street. There are also some cutting edge contemporary style buildings; it sure is a city with style.

Barwon house was recently listed for sale and was described as a beautiful renovated stately Victorian home. The front of the home has been restored to its former glory and the family added a wonderful contemporary extension to the back of the property.

One of my favorite blogs is Annie’s A View On Design I found the images for two homes situated in South Yarra one of them was Barwon house. There is such a variety of interior styles I could not resist spending time creating the concept boards in this blogs. I thought it would give you a glimpse of some of the wonderful homes to be found in one of the most livable suburbs in the most livable city in the world. I have featured some interiors from homes and added images from Pinterest and the SampleBoard.com library. If you click on the boards you will find information on each image used in the concept boards.

Besides the wonderful architecture shopping on the famous trendy up market Chapel Street and Toorkak Road is a delight as is a visit to the cafes and restaurants. We spent a day easily getting to and wandering around Melbourne city which is only a train or tram ride away.
