Shakin’ Stevens’ Melbourne Home

Inner Melbourne  –  Matt Gibson A + D

Shakin’ Stevens is a Welsh R & R legend.  Also known as “Shaky”, this platinum-selling singer/songwriter holds the distinction of being the UK’s biggest-selling singles artist of the 1980s. He’s had a long association with Melbourne so it’s not surprising that it’s become his ‘home away from home’.

Matt Gibson was commissioned to design a full refurbishment and major addition to an old inner city home. The client wanted maximum interaction with the existing, long established garden and also wanted the house decor to be kept simple.  Gibson chose to focus on greens against a predominantly white palette in order to integrate house and garden. We think it works very well.  What do you think?
