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.

Mim Design based in Melbourne Australia is an interior design firm with a team of talented young designers and stylists creating outstanding new residential and commercial projects including this fabulous apartment by Megan Rawson.
Crisp Street offers premium residential living in the heart of Melbourne’s Bayside. Inspired by its coastal proximity this apartment reflects a composition of contemporary living zones that builds on a softened monochrome palette. This balance is punctuated with furnishings in blue-greys and dusky pinks with accents of coral and copper. Set back a block from the beach, the client brief inevitably called for a design that captured the coastal positioning while portraying an understated and modern elegance relevant to city living. The driving inspiration was to create an interior that was a comfortable home within a busy apartment dwelling. Therefore, efficient space planning and clever design devises were key to maximising this clean lined, coastal interior.
With the consideration of spatial layout, also came the attention to material selection and furniture. This needed to look aesthetically beautiful, remain within budget but also overcome the needs of small space living. Quality fixtures and finishes throughout the apartments ensured a refined edge. The washed timber flooring created an overall polished, simple and timeless feel throughout, whilst the custom created, white powder-coated, ‘bam-bam’ handles and custom ‘slot’ basins ensured the apartment had personality. Close consideration was given to how each element worked towards the resident’s overall use and enjoyment of the space. Both the palette and furniture items were selected to ensure the interior flowed in proportion and with design sense.
Crisp Street pushed the Mim team to work within the proportions of a multi-residential dwelling, all the while ensuring the interior décor formed a unique personality and maintained an individualistic appeal. Using a layered approach, the curated selection of Australian artworks created a bold and colourful break amongst the otherwise soft and subdued colour scheme. Locally sourced finishes ensured a sustainable outcome, whilst a simple aesthetic philosophy, meant the palette and materials felt clean and relaxed throughout. Mim worked alongside developers BPM to ensure the interior made good use of the client’s wishes to weave the seaside charm into this elegantly furnished home. It was important the interior resulted in an inspiring space that hosts a genuine balance between Bayside and practical city living.

This is a 3D marketing campaign for Stryntrappa, a Norwegian company designing and producing stairs.
