What Houzz contributors are saying:
21. Hollywood style. Melbourne, VictoriaDesigner: Alexander Pollock Interiors
4. Esteem needsMaslow divided our esteem needs into two categories: our esteem for ourselves, which is wrapped up in our dignity, independence and achievements; and the esteem we crave from others, such as status, prestige and desire for reputation. If you feel proud of your new renovation or of how beautifully you’ve cleaned and styled your home, chances are it’s contributing positively to your esteem. It pays to be wary, however, of seeking esteem from others in such a significant investment as your home – striving to compete with others’ social standing is a game that never ended happily.
24. Location: Eaglemont, VictoriaWhy we love it: Sometimes it’s not hip to be square. Curves can soften an otherwise angular room and add a touch of glamour. Add an artwork with attitude if you’re feeling bold.See more of this room
