In every great city there are always a handful of iconic homes which seem to really epitomise the style and unique personality of that city. These are the kind of homes that pop up in the press from time to time, that are familiar enough to warrant an inquisitive glance when you drive past them, and more often than not, are homes that belong to people you have heard of – well known and interesting people who run ‘success story’ businesses. I reckon every international city hides a small number of homes like this, and today’s feature would have to be one of Melbourne’s most prominent examples. A home that to many needs no introduction – the Fitzroy family home of Lisa Gorman and Dean Angelucci!

I have got to say, I rarely chase homes that have been seen extensively in the press before. But I’m sure you’ll agree, THIS ONE really deserves documenting here, despite having featured in both local and international mags in recent years!  Dean and Lisa’s incredible home, set back off a leafy Fitzroy street with a generous sunken garden in the front, distinctive Victorian frontage and timber modernist-inspired extension at the rear is such a truly special place – and I reckon is a succinct snapshot of the way many Melburnians aspire to live. Ie – in a renovated Victorian home, surrounded by an eclectic edit of Australian art and mid century furniture, and a stone’s throw from great coffee!

‘Boston Villa’ was built around 1863 by William Candy, a stonemason and the first owner of this home. Around five years ago Dean and Lisa acquired the building, and engaged architect and friend Emilio Fuscaldo of Nest Architects to update and extend the home. (You’ve seen Emilio’s own home here).

‘We actually owned the house for about 1.5 years before moving in’ recalls Dean. ‘It was completely decrepit when we bought it. The original intention was to simply renovate the existing house, but after one of the squatters who was living here burnt it down, a re-think of our plan was in order! The eventual renovation by NEST Architects was major – pretty much a rebuild, starting with a hole in the ground surrounded by some, but not all of the exterior walls!’.

The original footprint of the home was expanded, and a children’s wing was added for Dean and Lisa’s two kids, Pepa and Hazel, taking place of old stables out the back. Emilio also added a cellar, and a single guest room/study upstairs. Another significant change was a new entrance to the home – rather than enter through the original front door, the front door is via the side of the house, landing visitors straight into the centre of the home, at the junction between the ‘Victorian’ and ‘Modern’ halves.

It was a tricky house to capture, this one. As Sean Fennessy accurately put it after our shoot – ‘that was like shooting 4 homes in one’.  He was so right!  It’s not a scale thing, it’s a style thing… this home happily unites so many different styles and eras under one roof, but it’s a tricky thing trying to tell that story visually in a linear way. Anyway I sincerely hope we have done this place justice, because of ALL the homes we have ever featured here, I don’t think I’ve ever fallen quite so hard as I have for this one!

Of course, with homeowners like these, it’s no surprise this unique pad is curated to perfection. Dean has been trading mid century treasures for years, though his business Angelucci Twentieth Century, in Smith st Fitzroy. Dean has an incredible eye for furniture and fine art, which coupled with Lisa’s passion for vibrant colour and pattern, makes for a seriously photogenic home, full of unexpected details.

IN ADDITION to sharing their stunning home with you all today, Dean and Lisa have a very special gift for one lucky reader! Dean has offered a set of iconic tableware from Russell Wright for Bauer Pottery USA – a pitcher, two beakers and plates from his store, Angelucci Twentieth Century. This generous gift, pictured below, is valued at $475.

To be in the running, simply leave your comment on today’s post before 10.00pm Melbourne time.  A winner will be drawn at random and contacted tomorrow!  (For extra credit, though not imperative for entry to this competition, Angelucci would love you to like them on Facebook!)

A special giveaway for one lucky reader!  A set of Russell Wright for Bauer Pottery USA tableware from Angelucci Twentieth Century.  Comment today to be in the running!

MASSIVE THANKS to Lisa and Dean for sharing their amazing home with us today. If there was ever a home we’ve featured that I truly wish I could just move straight in to… this is it!

    Heaven! Such an inspiring mix.

  • Sally 4 years ago

    what a delicious home

  • carly 4 years ago

    The master bedroom is gorgeous but seriously where do people put their stuff? Books, magazines, alarm clocks, jewellery, nothing on a bedside table? Love it but I don’t think I could live in a magazine cut-out home, I just like too much stuff.

  • Anthony 4 years ago

    I am left speechless!

  • JacQueline 4 years ago

    What a dream home! I lived opposite this place years ago in a rambling sharehouse.

  • Nora 4 years ago

    I agree with Carly, where do they put all their stuff. All the artwork is not functional, but where do all the functional stuff go? Also, haven’t seen a tv in any of the homes features in tdf… don’t these people have tv’s in their living rooms?

    Done so spectacularly well !

  • Dee 4 years ago

    This shows how to use an eclectic mix of art and history to truly make a house a home. Russell Wright’s pottery adds just another perfect touch. The display of Rhys Lees ink portraits is my favorite!

    Not the kind of home I would have imagined Lisa Gorman to live in, but sooo beautiful either way! love it.

  • Matt 4 years ago

    This is an amazing home! I scrapbook for my future dream home and I am blown away the master bathroom and kitchen tap. Why? The white tiles, single lightglobe and the displaced taps in the master bathroom gives an utilitarian feel, like being in a public shower. The kitchen tap…random, I know…but I like how it stands out, like an art piece.

  • Michelle Cioffi 4 years ago

    Gorman is one of my all time favourite labels, mainly for its individuality, use of amazing patterns and bright, pop colour. I’m not at all suprised then, that this house – with its styling by Gorman and Angelucci together – looks as amazing as it does. The kids rooms are my favourite, especially the revamped wrought iron hospital beds. Question if you are able to answer: are Pepa and Hazel’s hexagonal pillows a Gorman number? Where might I find one? And is Pepa’s quilt by ‘Kantha’?
    ps. I’ve “liked” your Angelucci page for extra credit ;)

  • alison osborne 4 years ago

    well, i loved it. i could live there in a heart beat. the textures and colours, the little nooks with different moods. The only think i didn’t like is that i now have house envy and have to concentrate on not letting the waves of jealousy take me over. I’m guessing the bauer pottery might help! :)

  • hj 4 years ago

    I’ve lived in Australia for years and have recently moved to Melbourne. I seem to have still had this chip on my shoulder from living in Vancouver – often scoffing at the brick houses of Melbourne that all looked the same. It only took a few entrances into the homes of people I met to fill the chip in – permanently! Homes like this make me appreciate the old soul that Melbourne is. The homes ooze with personality, telling different stories. Everyone has a unique story, and they tell it so beautifully. This is the perfect example!

    Nowadays, I see the homes of Melbourne like I see books – some of the covers are the same, but the stories and characters inside will leave you longing for another book, another story.

  • Sophie 4 years ago

    What a lovely home!

  • Kathryn Taylor 4 years ago

    I have worn Lisa Gorman’s clothing since her first store opened in Melbourne many moons ago… I find her aesthetic really suits my personal brand to a tea. Its wonderful to see into her home, and again enjoy that positive, creative aesthetic that she shares with her family and friends – creating a home which is comfortable, fun and incredibly well thought out. Nice one.

  • A seriously cool and inviting home… love the kitchen tap! And that fireplace – wow!

    This has to be one of the most beautiful homes i’ve seen featured on TDF – and there have ben a few!! I am paticularly in love with the Italian Wall Lamp and Rope artwork by Dani Marti in the master bedroom – I know what i’ll be dreaming about tonight…..

  • Anny 4 years ago

    so dreamy, love love love!!!

  • Cassandra 4 years ago

    I’m with you Lucy, would love to move in today! Love the use of glass, space and style. With those two at the helm you can’t go wrong. How generous of Dean to offer a set of iconic tableware from Russell Wright, probably my only chance my home will have a piece of their’s!

  • Nicola 4 years ago

    oh lisa gorman, you’ve done it again! i keep seeing her everywhere! in broadsheet, here, and i even bought a lovely dress from gorman yesterday in anticipation for some sunhine! i was shocked to not see more colour in the home but it is magical none the less. also love the Road Kill art by Marianne Drew, where can i find her work?

  • Leah 4 years ago

    LOVE Gorman!

  • Nichola 4 years ago

    Omg – this is like a dream house! I always browse at Angelucci but have never purchased. The Baeur pottery gorgeous.

  • Grant 4 years ago

    Inspirational, Sensational, Motivational! My darling wife has been on at me for months about finally completing all the little half finished jobs I seem to have left around our house – perusing these images has spurred me into action. This weekend i’ll be doing my best to get all those little tasks complete – being proud of your home means alot and Lisa and Dean have every reason under the sun to be proud of their pad! Winning the giveaway would be grand – imagine presenting my wife with that gorgeous prize and getting the jobs completed – she won’t know what’s hit her!!!

    wow. so amazing… and not that surprising seeing that it’s these two!
    Great giveaway too. thanks!

  • Luisa Bastiras 4 years ago

    This is the kind of home I often dream of living in. It’s not hemmed into the conventional. It’s a family home without being a play house; and it’s a place to share art and the things you love without being a museum. It’s quite obviously lived in and loved. Plus, it’s in Melbourne (the greatest city this side of New York).

  • Linda 4 years ago

    Offically my favourite too! The perfect mix of old and new.

  • Siobhan 4 years ago

    Two of my favourite creative people and you did not disappoint! I have just brought a new house and can’t wait to use this house as inspiration. Hopefully the budget will stretch to a shopping spree at angelucci 20th century. Just brilliant!

  • smart red 4 years ago

    Gorgeous home but I have to agree with another comment, where is all the “stuff”?! No books! No kids toys! I realise this is a photo shoot but still! Having said that, I would happily live in this natural light filled home…would happily swap houses!…I’ll just clutter it with all of my books and “stuff”!

  • Kerri Cook 4 years ago

    Beautiful abode x

  • Shalini 4 years ago

    How lovely. I wonder where they got such perfect sculptural plants from? My favourite it has to be the wood feature wall in the bedroom, adds so much warmth and texture to a room that would otherwise look quite cold I think. Stunning home :)

  • Julie 4 years ago

    AMAZING! All of it, windows, light, chairs, art, Lisa’s hair, I could go on and on and on…
    Just one question? How do they feel that everyone knows where they live?

  • Jane 4 years ago

    I am also in the club of people who have occasionally walked past, and remember the house when it was “unoccupied”. There is just something about the place and it is amazing to think that it was neglected for so long… Looks great, and nice to see a house full of life again.

  • Kate N 4 years ago

    My husband and I are currently searching for the perfect piece of art to go in our newly painted and tarted up bedroom. Hillariously I am beginning to learn that the man I adore actually has some pretty different design ideas to me!! when you see homes like this that are so perfectly curated and slung together with such a happy ecclectic vibe it gives me great hope that our ying and yang tastes in art and design could infact be a blessing. This stunning home rocks a random astehic so perfectly. oh to be so cool x

    I’ve just moved into a new house with my partner and we’re constantly fighting about the aesthetic of our place. He loves brown (and that’s about it!) and I love bright pops of colour mixed with neutrals. Seeing these pictures has giving me loads of ideas of how we can mix our two styles harmoniously!
