Before there were hundreds of designers peddling that breezy Hamptons look, there was Diane Bergeron. Her clean, coastal style is punctuated by bold prints and a brilliant mix of colors. Bergeron’s style is neither modern nor traditional, it’s a fusion that feels at home in an industrial warehouse loft (like her own abode) or a beach bungalow.
One’s of the best ways to get a sense of her aesthetic is through a tour of the designer’s home. The previous two photos showcase her living room, located in a 2-story warehouse building in Melbourne, Australia where she lives with her husband, two children, and dog. This room is a lovely example of her ability to combine prints and colors in scales and tones that harmonize beautifully together.
Also on the same level is her living room that doubles as a library. Wanting to take full advantage of the generous 15-foot ceiling height, Bergeron built ample shelving for her tomes.
Her daughter’s room is a jewel box of a space decked out in a surprising combination of red and mint green. Bergeron managed to make concrete floors and industrial walls cozy and enveloping through textiles and colors.
This is a more intimate sitting room. Love the grasscloth walls and bold Madeline Weinrib zig zag rug.
This is where she meets with clients in her home. The endless black and white striped drapes creates such a theatrical touch in the otherwise clean space. Her full portfolio is available on her website, some more images from some of her projects follow:
