'The team at Real Living asked me to be part of a feature called 'Shop Like a Stylist', showcasing secret shopping haunts and great buys. A page of deep etched product shots also featured in this story with my round up of the best buys around.
At the time of the shoot Nick and I were also fully involved in our design and screen printing business, so it was a great chance to include some of our bright Curio & Curio cushions in these pics. I'd also just designed a small range of hand printed linen clothing, including the top I'm wearing in these shots. I also featured our hand-printed zig zag lamp shade on my gorgeous cockatoo base.
I set up this room set in my Melbourne house, especially for the shoot, sourcing furniture from Globewest and Tait, plus accessories from Ferm Living, Lulu and Hut 13. The grey triangle rug is from Armadillo & Co which grounded the space and worked well with our colour pop cushions. It pays to be bold, throw out the rule book and mix up the patterns. I enjoyed bringing this fun look together, with pattern and colour galore!'
