you’ve built your dream kitchen, now’s the time to use it!

Sharing your home with family and friends is one of life’s greatest joys. For some. While it certainly is for me, I understand that not everyone feels the same. However, there are definitely ways to minimise the stress and effort that goes into any occasion, big or small. For starters, only invite people you like. I’m not joking. Entertaining is so much more stressful when you’re grumpy that you’ve extended the invitation in the first place. Conversely, sometimes it’s nice to use your friends as guinea pigs, testing out new recipes you like the look of for the ‘real’ guests another time.

‘Cacti’ collection DESIGNER: Bethany Linz Bethany’s wallpaper all starts with a single stroke. “I paint with gouache on thick watercolour paper,” says Bethany. “I like to show all the details of the layers and brushstrokes within my wallpaper, so I have a specialist photograph my art, then I blow it up and put it in repeat on the computer.” Inspired by wall murals that have aged beautifully with time, this Sydney-based designer is also thankful for the boons of modern technology. “With digital printing, you can go crazy with your ideas, and you can keep the handpainted look that shows every brushstroke but with an affordable price tag,” says Bethany. And we’re not alone crushing on her work, as her wallpaper appeared in last year’s Maison & Objet Paris as a trendsetter. From…
