This Melbourne-based family is very proud of its own modern art collection that features some of the best of Australia’s modern artists. A luxury home right in the heart of Melbourne, overlooking the sunny beach, where a simple colourful item reigns in each home division, the contemporary art piece itself. Whether it is a stunning painting or art furniture that shines on its own, where colourful details take the stage.

Located by Brighton Beach in Melbourne’s south, the family’s luxury home was crafted to be a place of relaxation and sanctuary, a task undertaken by Miriam Fanning, principal and founder of Mim Design, who had worked with the same client four times previously. The brief was simple: make the house feel like an eternal holiday.

“They loved the idea of feeling like they were on holiday. Having previously worked together on a number of projects we became very good friends with many common design interests.” Fanning tells Vogue Living, describing the process as easygoing.

The family left the entire process of their luxury home‘s creation in their designer’s hands, however, they did have one specific request. They wanted them to create a space to house their extensive art collection.
“We believe this project represents the original design philosophy based on a timeless look that showcased the use of authentic materials paired with a mild sense of whimsy and intensity that were essential in creating a home that reflected our clients’ love for life,” Fanning says of the final project.
The modern furniture selection was discussed at an early stage and every piece has been considered and purchased to stand the test of time and become their client’s own collection that works with the luxury home.
