— DANIELLA & MARCUS BALSCHEIT
arcus and Daniella Balscheit are partners in business and in life. Their exciting and innovative approach to interior design began with the House of Balscheit, one of Melbourne’s ﬁ rst original vintage retail stores. The couple’s love of design and their conﬁdent and adventurous approach to interiors has seen them go on to establish Surround Interiors, along with a successful advertising business and jewellery label.
“Our approach to interior design is to create an environment and mood that evoke a sense of warmth and individualism. In this room the bed was the key element which determined the overall direction of the look; vintage French fused with contemporary elements. Florence Broadhurst wallpaper on the ceiling ties in with the colour of the bed’s upholstery and the dark wave snake-like wallpaper adds a contrasting element. The dark carpet complements the rich speckled curtain fabric, which helps to cement the ambient tone in the room, making it a warm and romantic environment to relax in and enjoy.” Photography: Andrew Lecky
