Hecker Guthrie Interiors: A Victorian Home in Melbourne

It’s getting closer to crunch time for my house renovation project and, after years of looking at, filing and considering options,  some actual decisions must soon be made.

Whilst flirting, intellectually, with some selective use of darker side of the colour spectrum, I’m not totally convinced it’s for me, in no small part because I am so consistently drawn to the light soaring impact of the pale hues, on walls and ceilings, seen in this, via Remodelista, from Hecker Guthrie Interiors: A Victorian Home in Melbourne.

Hecker Guthrie have used darker tones in the fixtures – notably in the beautiful blue kitchen – and in very small impactful spaces and places, such as the powder room, on the tall living room walls and in key furnishings.

Nowhere does the dark overwhelm the light and that, for me is the draw, suggesting I should maybe keep my own dark fantasies to a very selective minimum or risk feeling overwhelmed by darkness as time goes by.

Too psychoanalytical as an approach to interiors?
