Troye Sivan's Victorian-era Melbourne house.
From being a Youtube sensation back in 2013 to being at the top of global dance charts, Aussie singer and actor Troye Sivan is now back in Australia and in a home worth exploring.
After living in LA for 6 years at the stardom neighborhood where he got a Golden Globes nom for best original score for the song he created for the Boy Erased movie (an award he may have only lost because it was in the year of Shallow, played by Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga), he got back to his home country. And looking for sun, family, and comfort.
At his top wishes, while envisioning his home, he wanted a couch he could just jump on and stay there. So he picked one that (in his own words) looked a bit like a spaceship: the vintage Percival Lafer MP-61 sofa from Smith Street Bazaar. He adds that he needed a space for big dinners on this house he shares with his sister “to celebrate Friday night Shabbat. Our life plan is that one day we will all have our own families and raise them here.”
This Victorian-era house was reimagined with the help of Flack Studio, an Australian Interior Architecture & Design Studio that takes pride in respecting the past, present, and emerging movements in design.
By embracing the imperfections of the space based on the wabi-sabi idea, the Studio collaborated with Sivan to get an end result that just makes you wanna live there. With a lot of the original structure, they added vintage leather furniture all over to match the singer's will of being comfortable.
"My wish for everyone is that your space is the place you think of when you meditate. I want that feeling for everyone 'cause it's nice to have that place that is yours and you can just kind of kick back, relax, and enjoy your life," he shared with AD, sitting on his vintage Tobia Scarpa lounge chair.
