a time to clear the decks

A hhhh… fresh white spaces. There are few things that make me happier. Each year, as the white issue rolls around, I look forward to the sense of calm it brings. And yet I know that isn’t the case for everyone: how do you keep it clean? Is it realistic? No really, guys, this issue is full of ways to have a fresh white space without necessarily compromising on livability or personality. Part of having a space that’s light and bright is limiting the clutter, so as you weather the cooler months, take some time to assess whether you really need all the stuff you live with. I’m not talking a Marie Kondo-style clear-out or minimalist, empty rooms: just a careful edit that helps your home feel lighter somehow. There’s nothing like…

fair & square

Inspired by classical music, Sydney interior designer Greg Natale’s latest range of marble tiles,‘Staccato’, draws on a quartet of colourways –Verde Green, Carrara Gioia, Norwegian Rose and Emerald Green.The result is a visual feast – a chessboard design that champions rhythm while still celebrating marble’s natural variation, with each segment the next note in the composition. ‘Staccato’ marble tiles, $389/sqm, Greg Natale, gregnatale.com.

timber clocks

‘Petal’ clock DESIGNER: Kate Elton Growing up with a shipwright father made design an easy choice for Kate Elton. “Having him as my role model made my progression into this industry feel natural and logical,” she says.
