Kettle Black by Melbourne Interior Designers Studio You Me



Kettle Black, designed by Melbourne Interior Designers Studio You Me is an elegant and warm cafe situated on Albert Road, South Melbourne.

A subtle and sculptural interior that exudes a quiet confidence. Sitting somewhere between a café and a restaurant the Kettle Black almost creates its own genre of venue. This open and light filled interior is layered with warm finishes of soft oak and polished concrete, off set by the Billiani Doll chairs featured in a custom green and tiled walls. Accents of brass and hexagonal marble tiles bring a luxurious quality to the space.

However the true brilliance of this project is how the design slowly reveals itself in a series of vignettes within the interior. Each opening frames a new visual delight, theatrically celebrating the ordinary and inviting the viewer to appreciate these mundane moments as something truly beautiful and sculptural. Stunning.
