I adore the brassy colours used in this room. The copper lights and beanbag, with the incredible artwork and the hanging warm toned light works wonders. The white walls and earthy wooden floors ensure that the accents don’t overwhelm, and the black accents of the fireplace and stool cut through and ensure a well balanced room. Seems to me that this whole room was planned around the colour palate of the painting.

Vintage House In Daylesford

Home of stylist Kali Cavanagh this 1860s cottage has a stunning mix of old and new, quirky finds and a wealth of materials on display. Animal skin rugs, rusty iron work, rough wood or smooth marble it’s all under one gorgeous roof.

Wherever you look there are eclectic finds from around the world like French stable doors, subway tiles, antique wooden shutters, a vintage fan, a framed Union Jack flag, industrial style pendant lights and a fabulous cast-iron bath. I love the fact that every room has it’s own character ranging from white Scandi influences in the master bedroom and en-suite to a shabby chic country kitchen with a to-die-for pale blue Chambers oven.

One Bedroom - Two Concepts

The power of colour and accessories.

Bedroom A. Move away from stereotypical thinking – pink may be girly but it can also be elegant, as seen with this room. If wall-to-wall pink is too much for you, simply painting to an imaginery picture rail will give your eye some respite from the colour. Use paint swatches to mix and match different colour combos to inspire how you’ll accessorise your space – it’s all about your unique take.

Bedroom B. This bedroom’s blue shades ensure there is a common thread tying the look together. Multiple patterns add interest and work in harmony; their indigo-to-sky tones complement fresh coats of white and pale blue paint. Be warned though – creating a harmonious ombre blue room sounds easier than it is. It is best achieved through layers of like-minded blue tones from the same family.

Art | Megan Weston

Renowned for her large-scale aerial abstract works in ink, resin and acrylic, Melbourne based artist Megan Weston has been turning heads with her richly layered works on canvas, inspired in part by aerial photography.

Fascinated by her beautiful works and techniques, I found it extremely hard not to showcase every single piece. With quite a price tag, no two artworks are the same as they are inspired by technology and the images presented by satellites of the earth from a distance.

True to Megan’s style, “Icelandia” features topographical portraits working predominantly with her favoured medium of resin. This time focussing on the far north of the globe as her inspiration and subject. Glacial icy blues, deep emerald greens and colours found in flowers from the wildest of terrains have been masterly combined to create Megan’s version of Icelandia.
