I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home.? Link here while it lasts.
This four storey Georgian town house is a wonderful mix of new and old. Think contemporary kitchen with poured concrete floors, flashes of retro orange, moody rooms in the older part of the house, vintage finds and a myriad of house plants. Fun, flirt and fab. Lyndhurst by London-based interior designer and stylist Julia Thompson of Frank Interiors.
Colourful modern maximalism with an eclectic vintage mash-up. Hubert Zandberg – one of my biggest design crushes.?Located in London’s Notting Hill, Hubert Zandberg’s 850 square foot rental apartment was a temporary solution whilst he was between homes. Whilst no architectural works were undertaken, bold paint choices and the use of curtains to divide the space up created an atmosphere in which to showcase a curated selection of art, curiosities and furniture from Hubert’s extensive collection…a mix of curiosities from around the world including Paris, London, Berlin and Cape Town along with a mix of Brazilian, mid-century and Brutalist furniture all found a place and resulted in a harmonious space with a modernist maximalist aesthetic.
