A set decorator transformed a Melbourne, Australia, rental home into an eye-popping paradise overflowing with vintage collections.

THE LIVING ROOM is a study in how neutrals and woods can hold stunning visual interest when used thoughtfully. The teak shelves contain Victoria’s collections of handmade wooden birds and fish, birds carved from cow horns and ships in various materials.


IT TAKES AN IMPECCABLE EYE AND AN UNPARALLELED ATTENTION TO DETAIL TO PUT TOGETHER A MOVIE SET, creating scenes that capture imaginations and inspire questions like, “What type of person has the know-how to track down such amazing décor?”
