the task of transforming a young couple’s East Melbourne house into a child-ready home, designer David Flack passed with flying colors… all while infusing the space with his signature fresh style and just the right amount of glam. The Victorian terrace house revamp was addressed in two stages – beginning with the living room, bedrooms and baths, then circling back to the kitchen once baby had settled into his/her new home.
gave special attention to the main living area – working with existing pieces like the Poliform sofa and coffee table while amping things up with designer covetables like Michael Anastassiades’ Tube Chandelier and Vincent Van Duysen’s brass Keyholder ring.
the occasional dose of glitz, Flack applied a minimalist’s restraint – designing built-ins and baths with an eye for clean-lined function.
a monochromatic color scheme throughout, Flack capitalized on the magic of contrast – highlighting a wet bar and other key storage areas in shocks of black wood.
seamlessly out from the grey and white marble kitchen, lies a small media area dressed up by a pair of chic Apparatus Dyad Sconces.
European oak flooring was used to help counteract the Victorian terrace home’s innate dearth of natural light.

was kept clean and simple with a practical navy rug and functional, ladder-clad storage wall. An Anna Charlesworth Four Shapes chandelier adds a sweet dose of whimsy.
adult bedroom, Flack continued his soothing minimal color scheme to create a zen like retreat, complete with a vintage-style lounge chair looking out onto the leafy treetops of East Melbourne.
