Yes, you can peek inside Nina Proudman's incredible new Offspring house.

Any Offspring fan will have at some point dreamed of waking up in Nina Proudman’s industrial chic loft.

I have definitely swanned about Melbourne’s inner suburb of Fitzroy, imagining myself living her eclectic boho life.

But we’ve been hit by a flurry of changes this season. And where Nina’s Manhattan-style loft had remained a constant throughout the show’s twists and turns, her circumstances have changed.

Now mum to a two-year-old daughter, Nina has relocated to a kid-friendly weatherboard dwelling.

With Offspring Season 6 now here, let’s recap some great moments. Post continues after video...

Offspring’s locations manager Nicci Dillo told Domain the decision-making process was intensive, having scouted dozens of Fitzroy houses before settling on one.

“I don’t think I can stress enough just how important it was to get this right,” Dillon said.

“Nina’s past homes have been so beautiful and so much a reflection of who she is that this had to be exactly right.”

The minimalist pad they eventually borrowed for shooting is owned by interior designer Kali Cavanagh, built with sleek concrete floors, exposed timber panels and steel doors: the perfect blank canvas.

While it doesn’t ooze the same warehouse cool feel of her old place, it is just as stunning: a living area streaming with light and exposed beams on the ceiling, a glass window wall adjoined to the courtyard, a kitchen with timber cabinetry and concrete benches, modern carpeting.

Whack in some colour, a motley collection of furniture, Aussie art, plants and kid clutter, and the space was certifiably Nina-fied.

The Fitzroy loft Nina and Patrick formerly lived in.

“Her new house had to not just be believable to viewers but warm, textured and layered, very much reflective of the person she is and a real home for her and her daughter,” Dillon told Domain.

“We also had to make it somewhere you would believe she would leave her other beautiful home for.”

Dillon said part of Nina's charm is her imperfections, and her environment is intended to reflect that aspect of her character.

Even the front door of the cottage was designed to appear weathered, Dillon said, with a panel missing from the lattice work on the verandah.

“We see so much of [Nina] in her own world, talking to herself, and her house is always part of that. She’s constantly evolving as her houses,” Kennedy said.

Welcome to the ever-flawed, ever-charming, but more earthy Nina.
