For Eve Wilson to look on while somebody else shoots her home in Cremorne, Melbourne, is strange, to say the least. The photographer works with interiors, portraits, and places; she knows every angle of her own home so well that it’s novel to look at it through a new lens. And points of view are important 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. “It’s quite spectacular,” Eve concedes. Inside, a palette of warm greens and browns delineates its spaces, marking a passage from the old to the new. At the center, a glass-walled corridor connects the two, while a small green internal courtyard injects a sense of calm that permeates the whole building. 

It’s an easeful, elegant, and grounded home to the photographer, her husband Jon, and their two young daughters, Elliot and June. Pleasingly for Eve, it offers up a new view almost every day.

This interview is part of “Inside with…” a series of home stories and studio visits produced in collaboration with the Scandinavian design brand Muuto. Through dialogue with different creatives, the series explores the ever-evolving concept of personal space.
