Wattle House by Golden


Tasked with enlivening a recently renovated home, Melbourne-based design studio Golden took inspiration from its residents, a young and creative family. Injecting their personalities into the home was integral to the design approach, with Golden transforming each space into one that celebrates art, texture and form. 

Mitigating the unique challenge of working with a recently renovated space, Golden found the right balance between what to refresh and and what not to. Function was also essential to the design, with artful yet family friendly custom joinery featuring throughout the home. Through the selection of furniture and the design of unique joinery insertions, Golden has embraced the earthy and rustic textures and decorative pieces that speak to the strong, distinctive vision of the client. Curved travertine drawers appear as decorative, while the design intent was heavily influenced by function, for toddler use and safety. A custom crafted whiskey cabinet in aged brass embraces a love for entertaining while creating a sense of vintage charm; as though it has held pride of place in the lounge for years. 

A carefully executed material selection of velvet, natural stone, rattan, perforated brass, and Moroccan patterns create a calming clash, expressing a level of eclecticism that can only be achieved with a trusting, creative client. The living room corner above features the iconic Circle chair by Hans J. Wegner, the Akari 10A floor lamp by Isamu Naguchi, and Tabernas Rug by Halcyon Lake from the new Amadi Collection featured on TDC earlier this week. These sit alongside the beautiful custom travertine sideboard.

In keeping with Golden's tactile and sensory approach, the tones, textures and materials are layered and organic, resulting in spaces that are warm and holistically balanced. A custom crafted dressing table activates an unused corner in the master bedroom and is beautifully paired with the Arch Vanity chair by Douglas and Bec, and the Gubi wall mirror designed by Gio Ponti. An aged brass lamp by Apparatus is placed above an elegant custom made cabinet by Osiris Furniture & Joinery, who carried out all of the unique joinery throughout the home. 

Complimented by a considered material selection, the bathrooms are given character via Kelly Wearstler wallpaper, handmade tiles, and a feature Anna Charlesworth wall sconce that reinforces the storied, layered aesthetic.

With additional selections from Jardan, Ondene, and Great Dane, each furniture piece is special and unique; exuding a feeling of being found and collected. Wattle House is fresh but considered; a deeply layered family home with a foot in the past and the present.
