Can’t believe that I’ve only got to discover about Mim Design now, while reading their project featured on Yellowtrace. Some time in November 2013, I’ve travelled to Melbourne to visit a good friend. While wandering aimlessly at Crown, I remember seeing this shop – the Cotta Cafe, and couldn’t help to stop to admire the beautiful shop front and interior. It looked warm, rustic and unpretentious. And Mim Design, is the talented Melbourne-based creative practice behind the design of this cafe. Browsing through their portfolio, I saw more amazing projects. Like this one, a bright and airy apartment at Crisp Street Melbourne with occasional splashes of dusty pink and coral. Clean and welcoming. Just what I’ve imagined for a perfect home in Melbourne.
This is a project by Australian interior design and architectural practice Kerry Phelan Design Office (K.P.D.O).
The house has a neutral palette consisting mainly of white and Dulux “Timeless” grey to highlight the architectural details, furniture and the collection of contemporary art. Overall, the space feels luxurious with an edge.
The background is light and crisp, while the art work, accessories, and pillows add in pops of pastel colours all over the house. It reminds me of the cakes and meringue displayed in a french patisserie, so sweet.
This is the family home of Madeleine Grummet and her husband Jeremy, with their 4 daughters aged between 5 and 13. To read more about their house, go to The Design Files.
