Jeff Andrews, design genius

Posted on Tue, 29 May 2007 by KiM

Jeff Andrews has made it to my list of top 5 designers of all time. His designs are bold and cutting-edge but somehow just enough to suit all tastes. He uses a perfect amount of colour, and a perfect mix of modern and vintage. It’s PERFECTION, plain and simple. I could have started and ended with that one word. It says it all. There is so much to love about Jeff’s designs, that I’ll be doing another post later today of a space he designed that is absolutely spectacular. So make sure to check back later.

Dark, sensuous, sophisticated this Sydney apartment by Craig Spencer speaks of big city living, world travel and the finer things in life. A night time space it cocoons you in its luxury and provides the perfect counterpoint to that view. More of Craig’s inspiring work in the post below.

Originally from New Zealand Craig Spencer calls cosmopolitan Sydney home now. His masterful designs are best summed up in his own words. “Design relationships are integral to the journey of creating relaxing and enjoyable places for living and working. Together, our shared ideas evolve to form the foundation of a successful solution. As Buddha says ‘an idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea’. The quality of design is about the quality of materials, a question of proportion and the fine attention to detail that truly enhances each solution.” Beautiful sophisticated interiors.

Andy Sturgeon garden design

I have SO got the itch to do some landscaping to my miniscule property. I have someone coming in a week or so to finish my fence and build a new deck in the backyard. As a result, I am always looking for ideas for outdoor spaces. I love modern landscapes, and Andy Sturgeon’s website was very inspirational. “Andy Sturgeon Garden Design has emerged as a leading design practice earning a reputation for creating stylish modern gardens that are a fusion of contemporary design and natural materials. Planting often features heavily and ranges from striking architectural schemes through to soft, naturalistic styles. Lighting, sculpture and furniture are frequently integral to the design.”
