Today we’re re-visiting another magnificent Melbourne family home, which we originally shared in March this year.   The post was incredibly popular, with over 60 lovely comments from you all!  No surprise really – it’s a total stunner, styled with an inspired combination of colour, pattern and texture… hats off to graphic designer Zoe Murphy for creating such a special space to call home!

Zoe and husband Ben purchased the home in a very dilapidated condition in 2009, and undertook a major renovation with the expert assistance of Zoe’s brother Rodney Eggleston of March Studio (you’ve seen Rodney’s own home here and we recently interviewed him too!).  After a major overhaul which included re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-roofing and re-flooring – not to mention a complete re-working of the room layout, Zoe and Ben finally had their dream home.  And isn’t it magnificent!?

For the full story and many more pics, do pop over to the original post…!
