A LITTLE BIT ABOUT LEORA...

All it takes is one look at Seville Estate’s new restaurant fit out to know - Yarra Valley-based Leora McMahon just gets it.

Leora is The Creative Director of Welcome to Here Interior Architecture firm recently tasked with updating the restaurant and homestead accommodation for Seville Estate winery - who you may know as Halliday’s Wine Companion 2019 Winery of the Year. For anyone uninitiated to the wine world - it’s kind of a big deal.

From a marketing background, with marketing manager and stylist roles under her belt, Leora returned to study to complete a Bachelor of Design (Interior), and launched Welcome to Here out of the Yarra Valley.

Creating dishes from locally sourced produce, and taking pride in their own estate range, Seville Estate’s decision to use Yarra-based Leora as their designer must have felt a natural one. Indeed, the locally sourced furnishings and interiors for the homestead and restaurant reflect the larger ethos of the winery. Utilising a timeless neutral palate in keeping with the integrity of the brand, both the homestead and the restaurant exude a certain casual, understated energy of elements + textures that feel as though they have almost collided by chance.

Welcome to Here work on small to medium-sized builds across residential and commercial, with a focus on textures and materials. Leora’s work at Seville Estate has been widely recognised by the Australia and New Zealand design community; a testament to Leora’s natural talent for design.
