DESIGN FROM DOWN UNDER

I’ve been increasingly drawn to Australian interior design over the last few months, after having a good oogle at a couple of their design mags on a flight back home.  Literally almost every single space I see makes my eyes pop out of my noggin, so I thought I’d do a little round up this week of a few of my faves.

Incorporating more light, bright, natural finishes than you can shake a stick at, a large smattering of Balinese/general Indonesian decor and a focus on indoor/outdoor spaces, these are guaranteed to make your day – I recommend you go make yourself a cuppa and take some time over them.

LOVE all these relaxed, airy, bright living spaces.  All the stunning natural finishes – leather, linen, petrified wood, feathers, rattan, acacia, cow hide, seashell, reindeer (?? – I’m fairly certain a reindeer never featured in ‘Neighbours’, what else could this be?  Ooh kangaroo maybe.  Sorry, digressing.) fur, hammered bronze and sisal – prevent the white/neutral schemes from becoming boring and meh.
