fresh to the season

SPRING IS ALMOST HERE and so it is nearly time to open up the windows and welcome a seasonal update to your home. I am coveting the newly refreshed David Jones Home Collection, created in-house. This range embodies the season’s relaxed silhouettes and brings airy natural fibres to the fore, with homewares in a modern palette of chalky pastels and neutrals. The collection of carefully curated textiles boasts high-quality matelassé bed linen from Portugal, crisp cottons and yarn-dyed linen. Warmer weather calls for alfresco entertaining and a spring table setting presents the perfect opportunity to celebrate the beauty of the season. Earth-inspired tabletop pieces and glassware layered with linen napkins exude relaxed, uniquely Australian style. The Rae dining range in white or soft grey is my pick – it looks gorgeous against…

60 seconds with jackie brygel

In this issue, Jackie wrote about the Studio Tate-designed home, p102. What have been some of your favourite career experiences? It’s difficult to single any out. I find myself feeling connected to every home I write about, making it ‘the favourite’ – and then it’s on to the next one! Who have been some of your enduring creative influences? Frank Lloyd Wright, Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and Rosita Missoni – if only I could have interviewed all of them! Where is home for you? I live with my family, including Bosley the golden retriever, in inner south-east Melbourne. It’s a neighbourhood I’ve known and loved for much of my life. Your favourite local haunts? Batch Espresso in bustling Balaclava for coffee and toast, +39 Pizzeria in Hawksburn Village for truly…

editor’s letter

While this correspondent is in a constant battle against the compilation of unwanted curves on his silhouette (hors d’oeuvres and champagne, I’m looking at you), the design world seems to be infatuated with anything but the boxy. From jellybean shapes to spheres and sensational squiggles, we are hastily being transported through the arched or round windows eschewing the square (that’s a Play School reference I never knew I’d need). And, not so quietly, I’m absolutely loving it. I recall years ago during a design studio session at university being barked at for creating spaces with curved lines before mastering the straight. Read into that what you will. I’ve had a fear of seductive shapes and curvaceous surfaces ever since. Free of those shackles, you only need to flick back and take…
