Stalking Baroque ‘n Roll

Posted on Thu, 24 May 2012 by midcenturyjo

A truly heady design mix or is that hedonistic? A little bit baroque, a whole lot OTT and a pinch of kitsch. It’s rock and roll, wham bam glam, nightclub meets suburban crash pad. Behind an unassuming St Kilda, Melbourne facade is a three bedroom apartment with identity issues. I’d really want to see this one in the flesh before I passed final judgement as the photography adds to the sense of unreality. Imagine it as a holiday let or a B&B complete with eccentric host. Now that would be cool! Link here while it lasts.

Love the pop of pink Baroque with all of the black and white. I've been wanting to add a pop of pink to my living room. Very inspirational.

Would make a cool movie set.

How pretty do you have to be to be comfortable in a home made entirely of mirrors? :-/ I love glam, but…

Would have been better as a 2 bedroom – the proportions are awful in the bedroom shown.

superdutch says:

Agree fully with cath w, two bedrooms are sufficient – break out the wall between the bedroom and bath and make one large bedroom, make the bedroom below a bath instead. And lose the mirrors, hon! The rest of the space is quite fabulous. Replace the furniture with something quite contrasting – I have seen fab mid-century modern stuff in Melbourne – and you could have a much nicer place. To see how that contrast could work see
