Episode 2

In episode two, Rosso discovers a turning point house in Perth. Modernist on the outside, with a moneyed makeover indoors, this home took to 80s chic like oversized perms took to fashion (as funny woman Kathy Lette tells us). Replete with wall to wall (and up the walls) shag pile carpeting and a private nightclub, together with sauna and solarium Rosso illustrates how this home symbolises the shift away from modest minimalism to a confident globalised Australian home design.
