an exotic home in melbourne, australia

You might think that this home is located in Morocco but it isn’t. This exotic style house is the Melbourne (Australia) home of Giovanni Mangano and Tory Flanigan.

On the walls Giovanni has used a mix of white paints to create a lime-washed effect. “With a neutral backdrop, you can try different things together and it still works,” he says.

In the dining area, the arch may look like a doorway, but it is actually a cleverly placed mirror.

The elaborate portal from Rajasthan is hundreds of years old, yet it works beautifully with the PP Møbler ‘Flag Halyard’ chair from Cult, the ‘Meditation’ wooden chair from Vixen & Velvet and the Space sofa and rug.

The master bedroom is rich with family history, thanks to the sacred heart of Jesus artwork and heirloom quilt from Giovanni’s grandmother.

Adobe-inspired walls, ornate carving and timber beams from an old Sydney woolshed set the scene for this home.

The Lumeah limestone courtyard floor adds an extra layer of texture outdoors.
