Jackalope Hotel Mornington Peninsula

Get ready to be captivated by a level of luxury and high end installation in hotel fit-outs without peer. The newly launched Jackalope Hotel, nestled within the picturesque Willow Creek Vineyard, is situated just an hour’s drive from Melbourne on the Mornington Pensinsula.

The name Jackalope is a creature of legend best described as a rabbit with horns, a portmanteau of “jackrabbit” and “antelope”. The hotel bar, Flaggerdoot, is the collective noun for a group of Jackalopes, while the fine dining restaurant Doot Doot Doot is also known as the leader of a Flaggerdoot.

Comprising 46 luxurious rooms and a 30-metre infinity pool, the hotel boasts boldly curated art commissions and installations incorporating a whimsical approach which was achieved by collaborating with some of the world’s leading designers to create the overall vision.

The moody interiors are clad in dark zinc with charred timber and black metal detailing. Floor to ceiling windows and private terraces connect guests to the picturesque surrounds. Bathrooms include black Japanese tubs, double vanities and bath products made exclusively for the hotel by Hunter Lab. Melbourne designer Zuster have provided the furniture.

Owner Louis Li purchased Willow Creek Vineyard in 2013, along with the Maria George Building in the Melbourne CBD, which is earmarked as the site for a second property under the Jackalope Hotels umbrella.

MUUTO Framed Mirrors

The new FRAMED mirror designed by Norway’s Anderssen & Voll for Muuto is suitable for multiple purposes sitting beautifully in the bedroom, living areas and bathrooms. Perfect as a stand alone piece or grouped together as a mirror gallery installation, these mirrors are available in grey, rose and taupe (or silver, copper and bronze).

In the words of Anderssen & Voll : “We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.”
