Modern and Cozy in Melbourne

I just adooooore this house in Melbourne!  It was once a pub, but now a home to Elise Elliot, a TV and newspaper journalist, and her family-- they kept some of the finishes of the previous pub.  The home is ultra-modern in its entirety, but keeping it warm with shades of wood and greenery.  The black library and nook got me hooked!  The mix of polished concrete floors, midcentury furniture, and Tolix industrial stools offers a wonderful eclectic mix of styles, but not surrendering its entire contemporary package.  The entrance door almost gave me a heart attack!  The concrete waterfall on the kitchen island is a dream… And look at the IKEA FINNVARD trestle desk!  Most homes I love tend to have IKEA pieces here and there.  The trick is in the mix!
