Thrilled to see our recent exhitbion room from the Avenue of Design included in the current House & Garden magazine top 50 rooms issue!
When I was invited to be a part of the Avenue of design @decordesignshow , I decided I would do it to show what I truly believe in & stand for as a designer. A high horse/ money where your mouth is exercise if you will!
And that is Feelings, colour, custom design, Australian made & manufacture, details & individuality.
To be perfectly honest, I truly thought my room display which is full of colour & individuality would be too bold & a bit frightening for most people. I had braced myself to hear the passing people verbalise their “nah, & OH dears’… instead what I’ve heard is the joyous reactions to seeing & experiencing the colour & details. Colour evokes feels that just don’t translate so much though the screen. It’s just been so lovely to see the happy emotions this little room has sparked!
I can proudly say that almost everything in the room – with the exception of the lamp base (a vintage find years ago) the walnut side table (clever local maker Hugh McCarthy) & of course the artworks (Jane Renyolds) & vases etc, was designed by me! Much of it existed already in my home – experiments that Ive done over time, and a few pieces I specially designed for this space – like the rug and the criss cross lamp shade that is my new favorite successful experiment & will feature in more projects soon!!
