I love grey. It’s the colour of my sofa, my rug, my pram and even my cat. So when Pantone released its colours of the year for 2021, I couldn’t be more thrilled. Sure, ‘Ultimate Gray’ has been interpreted by some as a representation of the depressing effects of the pandemic, but Pantone describes it as “emblematic of solid and dependable elements which are everlasting and provide a firm foundation”. The Taurean in me quite likes this description and it’s the side theme for this issue. There’s no doubt we are spending more time at home, so in this edition, we celebrate home life and talk about the things you can do to make your home more liveable. Speaking of more liveable, I’m currently in the process of knocking out several…

CLOVER BY BONNIE AND NEIL There’s nothing like fresh table linen to make your home feel special. Lucky for us, Melbourne-based Bonnie and Neil have served up a vibrant collection by the name of Clover, which includes napkins, tablecloths, cushions and throws. The range incorporates new foxglove and ornamental lily motifs, gorgeous graphics that join the regular stable of fruit and botanical imagery the brand is known for. “With a rich, bold colour palette full of summery tones, the collection has been designed to bring harmony and positivity into the home,” says creative director Bonnie. bonnieandneil.com.au LINEA BY JIM HANNON-TAN Named a gold winner at the Good Design Awards 2020, Linea looks like a mini streetscape modelled to resemble Oscar Niemeyer’s National Congress building.

HOSTEL BARABAN, MOSCOW Pantone may have named Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (yellow) its 2021 colours of the year, but Hostel Baraban in Moscow combined the two back in 2018. Charming old brickwork and simple, modern furnishings join the on-trend colour combination to create light, cheerful accommodation that was ahead of its time and continues to inspire. Unobtrusive with Russian avant-garde undertones, this is one for the bucket list. artcrafts.ru/interior/hostelbaraban CHELSEA HING’S DAYLESFORD STUDIO, VICTORIA Influential interior designer Chelsea Hing’s new studio in Daylesford feels more like a stylish home than a place of work. Housed inside a historic Victorian building, the space bucks the cookie-cutter trend of all-white, sterile commercial spaces. Lime-washed walls, sisal flooring and bright contemporary art make this a rich, textured space where creativity and colour flow freely. Chelsea’s Daylesford…

“The way we design our homes can affect how we live and feel without us knowing it,” says Emily MacAlpine, an interior designer who works mostly on older homes to update their functionality and retain their charm. “I believe when something is designed right with personality and character injected into it (while being functional) we can enhance our everyday living experiences.” Happiest when working through the different aspects of a project (from meeting a client to creating concepts and picking finishes), Emily sees her role as one of solving a series of problems until finishes, materials and spaces all work in harmony. Whether it’s a poky one-bedroom apartment in need of natural light and an airy interior, or a large family home with a darker, moodier wish list, Emily always focuses…
