ed’s letter

During my honeymoon across Europe, we stayed at a few “design hotels” that naturally featured some cutting-edge interior styling. Do you ever stay at a hotel and think, “I’d love to do something similar in my home”? In our style source section this issue, we take a look at how to achieve that luxurious hotel look at home. Speaking of European vacations, we’ve been inspired by the breathtaking Amalfi Coast and in another style source, we show you how to master that unmistakable Italian style. Bellissimo! A rug can fulfil many functions in your interiors. It can add colour or pattern, cover bare or cold floors and can make a room feel warmer or more cosy and soft underfoot. It can also help divide or section off spaces in your home,…

THE GARDENS OF BUNNY MELLON LINDA JANE HOLDEN VENDOME PRESS | $60 Throughout her long and storied life, Rachel “Bunny” Mellon’s greatest passion was garden design.

peter ceredig-evans

At three years of age, Peter Ceredig-Evans’ father created him an easel. When he was unable to get Peter away from it, it became clear he had a great interest in drawing. When he was older, and after seeing “Picasso’s work in Barcelona and Van Gogh’s vivid and textured paintings in London”, Peter decided he wanted to create thought-provoking work that invites the viewer to question the subject matter and connect on a personal level. “I am in the industry now because of my changed passion for art,” he explains. Peter studied at the Bath School of Art and Design in England, where he was “given a studio and left to it”. After graduating with high accreditations, he went on to complete his master’s at Bristol. While he sold a few…

bridgette mcnab

Bridgette McNab was uncertain about her life’s direction. She eventually decided to travel and try a variety of jobs to see what felt right. Twenty three years old and living in London, Bridgette enrolled herself in a five-week fine arts evening course at Central Saint Martins.

When the young artist realised this was her calling, Bridgette returned to Australia to complete a bachelor of fine arts at the National Art School in Sydney. Experiencing the common employment challenges that…
