Rove Concepts



What did I find when I got home from work? My inbox overflowing with images of super stylist Megan Morton's latest work, this fabulous apartment in Sydney's new iconic residential tower Lumière. Megan you take my breath away. Fun, funky, and a cacophony of colour. When can I move in? (See more of Megan's work here and here and here and here - another absolute DTI favourite.) Don't forget to click on the photos to see every detail in supersize.


Stephen Shubel

Stephen Shubel Design is based in San Francisco and is a highly respected and recognized firm, having been featured in over 50 publications and been included in House Beautiful's Top 100 Designers list for the last eight years. Stephen's design aesthetic is so gorgeous, whether it be either neutral and leaning towards shabby chic, or traditional mixed with beautiful citrus shades of orange, green and yellow. Whichever style, the spaces are perfection.


Seaside sassy

One of our favourite interior designers Greg Natale (here, here, here, here, here and here, told you he is a favourite) has a fabulous feature in the latest Belle magazine. This seaside home in Sydney sees a departure from Greg's outrageous use of pattern but is still true to his design vibe and his great sense of colour. This man is versatile! The colours are so spot on for a sophisticated beach feel. If you haven't been by Greg's website for a while he has new work including a fabulous redesign of a Point Piper home.

Is it curtains for retro?

Never! Time for our weekly trip down design's memory lane. Drapes darlings, curtains my chickadees. More scanned images from from How to Make Your Windows Beautiful Vol V, Kirsch Company, Michigan, 1974. Perhaps a bit more "tasteful" than last week's? Hard to believe they come from the same book. Oh well I'm a sucker for the over the top awfulness of the era anyway. Note too the ubiquitous indoor plant and they're on their way back!
