WE’RE IN THE BUSINESS OF TRENDS. Spotting them, setting them – they’re part of everything we do here at real living. Lately I’ve been noticing a new one: the anti-trend. That is, designers are throwing the rule book out the window and decorating with whatever takes their fancy. Matching and clashing. Old and new. Light and dark. Colour and neutrals. The point of this anti-trend is to be fearless in your choices, no matter what others think. Isn’t it exciting? The work of British design duo Campbell-Rey is a prime example. Turn to p98 to discover why they follow their hearts instead of the rules. Closer to home, this issue we tour three gorgeous Aussie abodes along the east coast, from Queensland to Victoria. The houses, and one fabulous apartment, are…

SURROUNDED BY EXTRAORDINARY VINTAGE FINDS, decadently upholstered furniture and her own designs, Marta Ferri is in her element. The Italian designer and her family call this historic Milan apartment home, but it’s the expressive fabrics, the theatrically-painted rooms and the artfully-arranged heirlooms that make it quintessentially hers. What stands out about Marta’s approach to style is her archival knowledge of textiles, and this passion traverses fashion and interiors. In 2014 Marta founded her own couture atelier and recently she designed a womenswear capsule for luxury retailer Matchesfashion. Her garments are romantic, feminine and expertly tailored with a touch of whimsy, but her other creative side revels in working with brands. As a textile consultant for the furniture company Moltenti&C, Marta experiments with colour and fibre combinations to develop innovative, atmospheric…
