What Houzz contributors are saying:
17. Location: Melbourne, VictoriaDesigner: Kirsty RistevskiFeatures: The hall in this meticulously restored Victorian home in Melbourne features French oak parquet flooring, colourful leadlight transom and sidelight windows around the front door, and decorative wall mouldings. Simply stunning.
Tip: Take your time and observe what your pets do when they’re relaxed and left to their own devices. Rather than always having them pose, try to capture a moment when they’re truly being themselves. Not every picture has to be taken front-on. Some shots are more emotive when your subject is in the distance rather than right in front of the lens, like this dog waiting for the humans of the house to come home.
The finished hallway truly showcases the lovingly restored period features of the home, such as the colourful leadlight windows around the front door, the French oak parquet flooring, and the wall panelling and other mouldings and trim. “I spent time in France when I was younger and the Parisian influence in the hallway shines through,” Ristevski says. As well as holding appeal for those who appreciate heritage architecture and design, the front porch is also Maisie’s favourite spot to keep an eye on the world as it goes by.
