Oh lord.  Hold onto your hats people. We have a KILLER Melbourne Home to share with you today, owned by one of Melbourne’s most stylish and inspiring creative businesswomen (and Mum of FOUR!) Natalie Bloom of Bloom Cosmetics. What a woman. What a home!

Natalie and husband Brian moved into this house in 2002, and since then their family has grown to include a gaggle of gorgeous kids – Chloe (9), Amber (8), Zac (6) and Ben (10 months).

Nat says on first glance she instantly fell in love with the house (which was built in 1908) – she was particularly drawn to the balconies and outdoor space around the perimeter of the property.  But whilst the exterior was perfect – the entire interior needed reworking. ‘Originally, it was a house full of lots of tiny rooms’ says Nat.  ‘We opened up the spaces, and renovated the interior while trying to retain original features, such as the staircase balustrade, some stained glass windows and other window furniture’.  Much respected local interior designer Kerry Phelan was enlisted to assist in modernising the space and selecting finishes and furniture.  The results are so stunning – the perfect balance of classic and contemporary styling, with just a touch of luxe.

One particularly treasured piece for Nat is the painting hanging above the staircase by Mirka Mora, a dear friend of Natalie’s.  ‘This painting was inspired by our family’ she says. ‘Mirka named it ‘Family‘ and we knew it had to be ours. It holds many memories and emotions for me, and I love that it’s the first thing I see when I come home’.

Beyond the picture perfect styling, the flow of Natalie’s home is so well considered, and this, in combination with its generous proportions, make it a fantastically user-friendly space for this very busy family.  Nat is also still very fond of the exterior elements she originally fell in love with- ‘our house is surrounded by garden and the changing exterior colours are a charming complement to the interior of our home, and bring me much joy’ she says.  The central location, not far from the Yarra River and Botanical Gardens has also been a wonderful blessing for Nat’s large family –  ‘It is an absolute treat to be so close to the city and walking distance to incredible parks for the kids’ she says.

Massive thanks to Natalie, Brian and family for sharing their beautiful home with us today!  As a busy Mum with an incredibly successful business, Natalie’s story is inspiring in more ways than one.  I feel very lucky to be able to share with you today a slightly more personal look into her world.

  • Glamour Drops 2 years ago

    To me, the beautiful artworks are the absolute stars of this warm and elegant home – without making it feel like a cold art gallery. Instead, it is like a cocooning and welcoming art gallery – but also feels like a family home. Not so easy to get that balance right, without it looking over-styled. Nice to see full timber pelmets too – so practical, for dust and thermal efficiency.

    Natalie’s home is simply stunning. Love all the gorgeous art. I have been a long-time supporter of all things Bloom. Am currently living with an original 1960s bathroom (complete with mauve bath). Trying my best to jazz it up a little with beautiful accessories. These Bloom products would be a super fine addition. Thanks for the opportunity x

    I remember when I was studying Bussiness in school 2007 and we watched a film about entrepreneurs, Natalie Bloom was one of them. As I grew up and got a lot more awareness about organics and natural cosmetics I fell in love with the smells and feel of Bloom cosmetics. Now today as I am heading into the world of Bussiness myself with Miss Molly, Natalie is a huge inspiration to me. Her house is even more inspiring with all the colour, texture and design that is behind it all. Thanks TDF for this peek.

    “And that’s your ‘bloomin lot’ “, so said the wonderful organic gardener and former host of Gardening Australia. I’m wondering whether he had the luck of seeing Natalie’s gorgeous family haven in person.

    One thing that really strikes you about Natalie Blooms home is just that its a beautiful warm inviting fresh light home. With amazing art by (I can almost imagine very like minded to Bloom) local melbourne artist such as Mirka Mora. What an Inspiration you are Natalie. Your Children and Family are lucky to have you. Im new to design files daily – I’m loving every moment, drinking up all the inspiration and love between all the glorious images. Thank you, Thank you, thank you!

    A few years ago we met Natalie in store at Myer and she was very kind and generous with her time for our young girls. It was the highlight of their trip to Melbourne. Being able to live your childhood dream and to continue your style from your home to the Bloom range, always timeless and clever is very inspirational. Congratulations Natalie Bloom on all your hard work and dedication to all that you do.
