A glimpse into the Melbourne home of interior and portrait photographer Eve Wilson

Danish design company Muuto steps inside the Melbourne home of interior and portrait photographer Eve Wilson. She lives in Cremorne, Melbourne, with her family, in a home which presents as a tiny traditional workers cottage but is backed by a light-filled, modernist-inspired extension.

Points of view are essential to this house, which looks very different depending on how you come at it. From the street, it appears to be little more than a tiny, traditional workers cottage, just over four meters wide. But peek down the laneway and you’ll see a mass of pink breeze blocks, vines entwined through them, flowers spilling out over glass, wood, and concrete.

Inside, a palette of warm greens, and browns delineates its spaces, marking a passage from the old to the new. At the centre, a glass-walled corridor connects the two, while a small green internal courtyard injects a sense of calm that permeates the whole building.

'The house was so tiny that it needed personality, creativity – not just open-plan, with a white box on the back. I wanted textures, colour, and lots of greenery', Wilson tells Muuto.

'When you enter the house, you start in the oldest space. That's still quite traditionally built, so it's still got the cornices, the lighting roses, and it's all in a palette of warm off-whites. But as you move through it, you come to greens – these tastes of the new section. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, and my study, which are all in the old building. Essentially the two buildings are joined together by a walkway. There’s a large window to one side, and the tiniest little green courtyard which takes you down into the new space, all concrete, wood, greens, and the pink exterior. That's where you get all the texture and a completely different warmth.'

'One of the things I love the most is when we're all using different spaces … Because of the courtyard, we can see through to where they are, and vice versa. There's this really nice connection; everyone's doing something different, but you still feel like you're all together.'
