Inside the decadent Melbourne mansion queen WAG Rebecca Judd shares with her Carlton footballer husband Chris
She’s made a name for herself in the world of fashion, but it appears Rebecca Judd’s style credentials reach far beyond her love of designer threads.
The model and television personality, 31, showcased her interior skill set as she flung open the doors of the Melbourne mansion she shares with her Carlton footballer husband Chris this week.
Taking followers of her fashion and lifestyle blog Rebecca Judd Loves on a guided tour of the palatial property, she displays its decadent design touches and stunning pieces of modern art, all the while sharing her trademark style secrets.
Open house: Queen WAG Rebecca Judd and her Carlton footballer husband Chris have flung open the doors of their suburban Melbourne mansion to showcase their decadent design touches and stunning pieces of art
First to draw the eye is a statement artwork which breaks up the neutral palate, injecting a welcome burst of colour.
Described by the WAG as ‘the hero’ of the room, it was the inspiration for the matching decorations which carry the warmth and vibrancy of the painting throughout the space.
Another feature is the black leather coach which sits atop a stripped black and white rug with caramel-coloured accents.
The Channel Nine weather girl admits that while the couch wasn’t her first choice, it was the most practical for her busy working lifestyle.
‘I’m not a huge fan of leather couches,’ she explains, ‘I find them to be a little bit cold and uninviting,
‘But as a mother of two young children and an especially a very, very messy toddler, I needed leather and not a fabric couch.’
She also confesses she chose to keep the most expensive items of the room neutral so she can change decorations such as cushions and throws to match the style of the changing seasons.
Feature: The model and television presenter had a custom painting specifically commissioned for her front room for her 30th birthday
In the third video of her 12-part series, Rebecca leads viewers through the most feminine room of the house explaining the merits of a ‘good front room’ – or GFR as she affectionately names it.
Decorated in baby pinks and powder blues, the model reveals she had the feature artwork specifically commissioned for the home for her 30th birthday.
The piece, which features a zebra standing against a watercolour backdrop of blues, aquas and greens, sits over a bold stained wood cabinet and acts as the focal point of the room.
The space also includes an eye-catching cobalt-blue zebra patterned rug around which a mismatched collection of chairs are placed.
Clean lines: The kitchen features marble stone top benches and dark timber furnishings creating a cool, contemporary look
What mess? The kitchen includes an immaculately kept butler’s pantry, complete with a commercial espresso machine, which the model explains is to hide her dirty dishes
Her kitchen is much more subdued in design with marble stone top benches and dark timber furnishings adding a cool, modern feel.
Complete with a pull-out tea towel cupboard and concealed fridge, the brunette speaks at length about her impeccably maintained butler’s pantry which she says she uses to ‘hide the dirty dishes’.
‘For me, [the kitchen] has to be clutter free and ascetically pleasing,’ she explains.
‘Quite frankly the more time I spend out of this room the better.’
After three years of planning and construction, Rebecca and her young family moved into the property at the end of last year, just a couple of months ahead of the birth of their daughter Billie Kate in February.
Mixing alfesco living with contemporary lines and open spaces, the architectural plan is based on the luxurious Alila Uluwatu Villas on the Indonesian island of Bali.
