Not to be mistaken with the guru of style in the 60s, 70s and 80s the other David Hicks is a Melbourne based designer of equally luxurious spaces. The monochromatic palette, iconic furniture and the finest finishes add an elegance to these beautiful spaces. His boutique size practice focuses on his chosen clientele and the quality of the designs has seen his rooms featured in leading shelter magazines and books around the world. Masterful!
Mariana is a graphic artist/designer, currently studying interior decoration and design. This is her family home on Flickr. I first laid eyes on this fabulous house when Mariana commented on some of my Flickr photos. I’m so glad I clicked on over. Great mid century furniture, funky found objects, fifties sensibilities and amazing twig lamp shades fashioned by Mariana herself. Secretly I’m coveting her West German vases! Thanks for letting me share your home Mariana. I’d love to move in myself. I’m sure I’d feel right at home!
A little while ago I featured a photographer, Prue Ruscoe whose work I adore. My favourite pictures of Prue’s appear in one of my favourite books, A Sense of Style. Colour, by Shannon Fricke, interior stylist, TV presenter and now regular contributor to Inside Out. My copy is well worn and well used. Shannon was kind enough to email thanking me for mentioning her book and with the news that she has a new book, Sense of Style. Space. These are the images she sent to share. In her first book she explores the world of colour, revelling in its cheekiness and life enriching beauty. Her books, while informative, are joyous celebrations of life, style and lifestyle. Each is a feast for the eyes with glorious photos of homes, mood boards and vignettes styled by Shannon. Her new book takes us on a journey through space, sacred, personal, transitional and functional spaces. Once again her insightful holistic approach is matched by Prue’s stunning photographs. If you find her books I know they will become well used sources of inspiration. Both books can be found readily in Australian bookstores and here. Unfortunately both are not yet available in America but that’s what online ordering is for!
P.S. Thank you so much for the copy of the new book Shannon. It’s gorgeous from cover to cover!
