COMO BY DESIGN
Como by Design offers the opportunity to view historic Como House ‘Reimagined’ by twenty-six eminent Melbourne designers, including Moss in one beautiful location from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st October. The three day event will see designers each decorate a space of the the house with their own style and flair, bringing a fresh look to the period residence.
Moss is a boutique design practice with an interest in the unique character of each of our clients. With a passion for textiles and love of colour, we encourage our clients to embrace a look which is contemporary but timeless, and reflects something about who they are.
Q. What is one design element that is a must in your work?
A. We believe that a space is better when some of its history remains in in order to create a unique look. We have retained the dining room table, purchased by the Armytage Family before they owned Como House in which they lived for nearly 95 years.
Q. Who or what are some of your main influences?
A. We are influenced by the Australian lifestyle, so our style is relaxed and easy to live in. We also love modernist Australian design which also represents a look full of light, contrasting textures and bold palettes.
Q. What is something people don't know about you?
A. My great aunt, her sister and husband were the last cooks and gardener of Como before it was handed over to the National Trust. My father used to call in for dinner when he studied at Melbourne University, and sit in the kitchen with his aunties as they cooked for the Armytage sisters, listen to stories of the characters that they were.
