“winter, it’s over. i’ve found my soulmate... spring”

Did I tell you I bought a summer house? No, not an extra cottage to hang out and sip chilled rosé in when the weather is spiffy (although that would be ideal). I mean, I bought a place that is brilliant in summer, but the complete opposite in winter. Over the winter months, my much-loved new home morphed into a veritable ice cave (and I can assure you, it turned me into an ice queen) – at least it was the right colour. Of course, I also played a solid role in that. Having ripped up the carpets as soon as I moved in, I effectively removed all the floor insulation, meaning the breeze I loved in summer now rolls up through the gappy floorboards like the roaring forties. And as…

things we love

digital beauty Simple shapes and pretty shades are a perfect match in Kimmy Hogan’s art Whether it’s dotted patterns, organic forms or a play on dimension, the artwork by Geelong-based digital artist Kimmy Hogan demands a double or triple take in the sweetest possible way. Her works have a hand-drawn feel despite Kimmy using “customised digital brushes” “My latest two collections are greatly influenced by my love of oil paintings,” says Kimmy. These joyful prints are ideal for a sunny and inviting living space. Flat Lay IV limited-edition print, from $125 (unframed), Kimmy Hogan, kimmyhogan.com.au.…

what’s on our radar

CULT CLASSIC ALESSI ‘9093’ KETTLE BY MICHAEL GRAVES The form: A conical shaped kettle in polished stainless steel with a whistle in the shape of a flying bird. What makes it special: Michael Graves, an American postmodern architect and designer, died earlier this year at the age of 80. His influence started during the early ’70s with buildings such as the Snyderman House in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and his controversial Portland Building in Oregon in 1982. Equally at home with product design, Graves created more than 150 items for the Italian homewares company Alessi over his career, with his 1985 “whistling kettle” being a bestseller for the past 30 years (it was actually Alessi’s top seller for 15 years and still ranks in the top 10). It’s the hero of a collection…

pendant lights

‘Me Too’ pendant light Designer: Paul Townsin “Concrete is like a living being,” says Paul, who undertakes a ‘hands-on’ process to create this lamp. With a hand-cast concrete shade and cold-rolled steel frame, ‘Me Too’ represents fine craftsmanship and smart design. The light started life as a floor and table lamp and Paul – smitten with the combination of porous concrete and a warm glow – toiled to perfect his creation. “The concrete is hand mixed to a ratio that took me two years to get right,” says the Adelaide designer. “The moment you relax with the concrete, it throws your efforts back in your face – but the best part of the concrete is its blemishes.” Every ‘Me Too’ pendant lamp features unique pores and veins, which the light reveals and…
