Troye Sivan is known for his accolades as a singer, actor and former Youtube personality, but today, all we can talk about are his home decor ideas. The stylish musician's interior designer unveiled pictures of the living room in his Melbourne, Australia home, and the room is a unique melting pot of design styles.

Interior designers love the way that Troye Sivan's interiors combine traditional and modern decor for a personalized feel. 'This interior is a melting pot of styles, used in a way that feels very authentic and personal,' says Melissa Read, designer and creative director of Studio Burntwood.

'Due to the eclectic furniture and the re-purposing of materials, it has a relaxed and lived-in feel, as if it's always been there. The accents of burnt orange in the upholstery work in harmony with the raw timber furniture,' she continues. 'The combination of mid-century style furniture and elegant library-chic book stacks creates a unique blend of comfort and sophistication,' says Charmaine Wynter, lead designer at Charmaine Wyner Interiors.

The experts also love the way that the organic touches in the room create a warm and personal feel, 'The oversized plants, tiled flooring and floor-to-ceiling folding doors blur the line between the indoors and outdoors,' says interior designer Melissa Read. 

'The large accordion doors effectively separate the interior from the outdoors while still providing beautiful views and ample natural light. The mixture of different woods and wood finishes adds an earthy and masculine je ne sais quoi that is simply irresistible,' adds Charmaine Wynter. The mixture offers a bright collection of light living room ideas.

Home decor experts express that the combination of furniture and styles in the space creates an especially welcoming atmosphere. 'Troye Sivan's Home exudes a calm and luxurious laid-back luxe vibe that warmly welcomes anyone who enters,' states Wynter. 'In this well-lit and airy area, people can't help but linger and relax.' She continues, 'The brick flooring, topped with hand-tufted wool area rugs, serves as the perfect foundation for this classic L-shaped furniture layout.'
