How absolutely stunning is this Melbourne home?! Styled by Dulux in partnership with fashion designers Alexandra and Genevieve Smart (of Ginger & Smart), the house was brought to life through the colours, textures and mood evoked by their Autumn Winter 2015 collection, Arcadia.
The living room features simple and soft-shaped furniture and accessories that juxtapose with the hard lines of built-in shelves painted in a commanding blue-black shade. The entry walls to the living room echos the Afterglow print in the Arcadia collection through a speckled paint pattern applied to the walls.
The styling of the home’s light-filled kitchen draws on a softer colour palette showcased in the Eclipse print from the collection. Accents of copper reference Ginger & Smart’s signature Rose Gold hardware and contribute to a feeling of luxury that is core to the brand’s nature and design aesthetic. An abstract interpretation of the palm frond found in the Eclipse print cuts through the walls of the kitchen at unexpected angles to accentuate the architectural design of the space as well as demonstrate a creative and easy method to create feature points using paint.
In the bedroom a deep and moody paint colour has been applied to the walls and ceiling, inspired by the collection’s namesake print; Arcadia. Large florals painted in luminous colours fall organically from ceiling to floor to lift the dark mood of the space and complement textural linens and furniture.
The styling project marks the first time Dulux and Ginger & Smart have collaborated. With their recently announced creative partnership set to see them join forces for further projects that blur the line between fashion and interior design.
