Inspired by fashion and borrowing a palette from nature, Melanie Turner‘s interiors possess a timeless quality that celebrates architectural details and classic design. Maintaining an emphasis on simplicity and understated glamour, her interiors feature a blend of clean lines, found objects, fine antiques, and custom-designed, sculptural furniture. There’s nothing more important to me than a home that is comfortable and inviting, and Melanie’s designs are just that yet have a sophisticated vibe that turns it up a notch. The dark shade of grey in the first few photos is fantastic.
A sweet dream, an escape, a wish and a wonder. Welcome to Ellis House, the country retreat of Aussie bedding queen Tracie Ellis. The Creative Director of AURA has fashioned a beautiful weekend escape at Kyneton in regional Victoria. Oh my! Oh my! You can rent it out! I would be in residence every other weekend if I lived close by. Moody, overflowing with country charm (and AURA homewares) and just fabulous! But of course. You wouldn’t expect anything else from Tracie.
P.S. The amazing photography is by Sharyn Cairns.
Dark, moody, masculine and down by the harbour. Not quite what you expect for boathouse living. Love the texture, the old wood, the play of white light against murky walls and the pops of yellow. Yes, in this case, I think pop is just the right word. A wonderful man cave by Sydney interior designer Karen Akers. Imagine sitting snug inside on a wild and windy rainy day.
Check out this vintage, rustic, eclectic space featured in the latest issue of Lithuanian e-mag Lamų slėnis. Lovin’ the photography and post-processing too.
