Melissa Avery and Christopher Lloyd

Homes

Melissa Avery is a schoolteacher, as well as a talented illustrator and a designer. Her partner Christopher Lloyd is an electrician. Five years ago, the pair made the unlikely move from a large suburban house in Melbourne’s South-West, to this cosy and compact 1.5 bedroom apartment in Melbourne’s CBD.
