Downsize In Style & Grace

Featured on the House and Garden website, this new residence design by BG Architecture in Brighton, Melbourne for a couple whose dependents have flown the coop and were looking to downsize, this house appeals to me in many ways, I love the interesting mix of materials which exist on harmony together. The house is on a 620 m2 corner block and the house in centered around 4 courtyards, where it seamlessly moves from indoors to outdoors and back again, add some touches of 1950’s furniture and you’ve just about created the perfect pad for the style conscious retirees.

Joom Up Your Room

I have been a long time admirer of Joom’s screen printed cushions, originally from Thailand, she now lives in California with her husband.

You can get them at her Etsy Shop, also called joom. The hardest thing is deciding which design and colour to choose.

Roger Sellers - Corian Bath To Die For

I saw this bath in person at Roger Sellers in Toorak a few weeks ago, it was only installed in the showroom the day before, from memory, the veneer is sandblasted and very very inviting.

Watch This Designer - Kif & Katast

Kif Brennan is one to watch in the design world, she designs jewellery, stationary, fabrics, wallpaper and my personal favorite steel screens that she has laser cut in her own design and then fast tracks the aging process but painting them with a rusting agent and if your not so sure about the steel, they are now available in felt, so they can adorn the walls of your interior space.

Kif’s designs originate from nature, and she captures them on her camera. What happens after that, I’m sure only Kif knows and I am sure it is a lengthy process. But the end result is clean and fresh, and will have you wanting more.

And where would one find the creations of Kif Brennan, in her own shop of course. Kif & Katast located in Prahran’s Hawkesburn Village. Kif not only stocks her own designs which she see through from the original concept to the display in her shop. She also supports other designers, both national and internationally buy selling their designs in her shop also.
Check her out in the lastest edition of Home Beautiful, as Shop Of The Month.
