Designer Visit: Diane Bergeron in Melbourne

Issue 39 · Natural History · October 1, 2010

Spotted recently in Living Etc.: The Melbourne residence of Diane Bergeron, an American textile designer who relocated to Australia with her husband and two children a while back. Bergeron's design philosophy—"If you stick to a neutral backdrop, shots of brights can boost new life into a space"—is on full display in her own home, a two-story, converted midcentury warehouse, with an office/showroom on the ground floor (Bergeron runs her own design studio, Diane Bergeron Interiors, and reps several lines of boutique fabrics).

Above: A carpet by Madeline Weinrib anchors the living room.

Above: An original steel door, factory lights, and rolling ladders preserve the industrial warehouse vibe.

Above: The upholstered chair is from Diane Bergeron Interiors.

Above L: Bergeron's design studio features ceiling to floor bookcases. Above R: A bolt of fabric functions as art in the studio's entryway.
