Tamsin JohnsonDESIGNERFor this issue, Johnson takes us on her Tuscan holiday with longtime friend, designer Lucy Folk (page 145). With a background in fashion design in Melbourne and London, the Sydney-based interior designer finds her creative process fuelled through trips overseas. “I find that travelling really helps me to develop new ideas,” says Johnson. “It is an important part of my process. My eyes are more open so I am able to push myself into new territory.” Another source of inspiration for this talented creative? Her husband, fashion designer Patrick Johnson. “It’s tempting to replicate something you have done before, because it’s been a success, but there are so many exciting new ideas to explore,” Johnson says. “He’s forever pushing the envelope.”Alicia RidleyDESIGNER, VOGUE LIVINGHaving worked in publishing for two years,…

take the tour

She may have swapped her native Brazil for the blissful SANTA MONICA sun, but supermodel ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO has managed to bring a hint of South American ease into the home she shares with her two young children. Enlisting the help of design guru MARTYN LAWRENCE BULLARD, the former Victoria’s Secret model has decorated her 1920s-era house in BRAZILIAN-MEETS-CALIFORNIAN-BOHO style.

Rebecca Caratti, editor, Vogue Living (PHOTOGRAPHER: MICHAEL NAUMOFF. HAIR & MAKE-UP: CLAIRE THOMSON)As we ease into a new year, I just can’t help but feel excited for the holiday season and the long summer ahead. We Australians love summer so we’ve produced an issue that re-creates that warm summer feeling and the sense of freedom that comes from spending time with loved ones during this special time of year.It’s a season when we savour the outdoors, so on page 32 in ‘Sunny Outlook’ we round up the most sophisticated outdoor loungers and recliners, produced by our style editor Joseph Gardner. We’ve asked Anthony Spon-Smith, creative director of Australian furniture retailer-turned-maker Coco Republic, to give us an exclusive look at his new outdoor range in ‘Studio Mr Smith’ (page 64), which…

over the rainbow

She’s credited with bringing pink back into interiors via her heavily Instagrammed Sketch gallery-restaurant in London. But India Mahdavi is no one-Pantone pony. She used what an executive called “spinach green” all over the walls of a Ladurée tearoom, and her Chez Nina nightclub installation at Nilufar Gallery in Milan this year made rainbow velvet a thing to covet.She has said she wants to “bring sunshine into a space” and that is exactly what she does via her Don Giovanni lamps. Like the giant flowers on a Wizard of Oz set, they’re a bit ’30s, a bit Mod, but with jelly mould-like Murano glass globes and gelato scoop-stack colour mixes, they are mostly just Mahdavi.Luckily for us, the Don Giovanni lamp is now available in Australia via Alm.
