World of Style and Kids Under Cover

World of Style by Porter Davis were asked to help interior design a studio apartment called 'The Loft' for Kids Under Cover.

This project is designed to give Kids Under Cover more opportunities to raise funds to at risk kids. Kids Under Cover have worked tirelessly to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people between the ages of 12-25 since 1989. By responding to the needs of these at-risk youth due to extreme conflict or overcrowding within the family home, and other issues such as mental health, Kids Under Cover build one or two bedroom studio apartments in the backyards of homes to keep young people connected to family.

Porter Davis has been a proud supporter of Kids Under Cover for over 10 years, through both the Kids Under Cover Cubby Challenge at the Melbourne International Garden and Flower Show every year, or through our Masterclass events held at World of Style - where all proceeds from every ticket purchased goes to Kids Under Cover.

'The Loft' has been a fantastic testament to the synergies between the two organisations. While Kids Under Cover know how to build great tiny homes, World of Style by Porter Davis knows how to style them.

World of Style were involved in selecting all the interior paint colours, tile selections, as well as sourcing all the furniture and décor for the project. 

Using a base palette of soft greys with shades of green to tie into the opening of this project at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, botanical inspired artwork also took pride of place in the lounge room. Pops of rich burgundy can also be found in the bedroom and lounge room for contrast. 

Keeping the small house on trend, a stunning aqua-green subway tile with matte black accents was used in the bathroom. 


When designing for a small dining area, a round glass table gives the illusion of open space. Coupled with a statement pendant light and artwork, it makes for a warm and inviting area.
