Little Italy Meets Parisian Chic Inside This Fashionable Melbourne Home

Carlton is a neighborhood in Melbourne that is renowned as Little Italy and this Victorian-era house with a reworked interior perfectly epitomizes this along with a dose of modernity. The house has a traditional street façade with Italianate-style terrace that has been kept intact by Biasol even as the interior feels refined and sophisticated. What you see as you step inside is a distinct shift towards modern minimalism as white takes over the entire setting. Black window frames and accents help anchor this space even as a lovely, well-lit atrium adds greenery to the setting with ease.

The open plan living area contains a kitchen and dining area with marble countertops and brass pendant fixtures adding brightness and ample textural contrast. A few of the old Victorian elements have been preserved and integrated to the newer motifs while the bedrooms sit on the top level and provide complete privacy. You can see a black and white color palette in every room of Casa Atrio and framed black and white photographs along with stoic windows frames further enhance this background.
