Working as the Director and Auctioneer of Barry Plant in Geelong, Kieron Hunter, the owner of this mid-century gem, has the envious luxury of seeing home listings before anyone else. When he arrived at the potential listing, he could see past the need for minor renovations and knew that he would make this house, his home. After a cosmetic upgrade to the kitchen and bathrooms working alongside Made For, Wildflower were engaged to source the finishing touches, a selection of mid-century sympathetic pieces, including furniture, artwork and objects.

Designed in the 1970s by the Melbourne architect, Nicholas Day, the distinctive home features exposed wooden beams, slate floors laced with strips of copper tones and exposed brick walls. Wildflower leaned into colour, introducing shades of burgundy, ochre and mossy green, indulging in textures to create a very homely, warm and relaxing space that is sensitive to the period of the home, yet modern and relevant for today.
