Musings from the desk of an interior designer and design educator. How do I spend my time and what do I find interesting? This is a photo of my design studio which is set in the garden of our Californian Bungalow. It gets plenty of natural light and has lovely views of our garden. It is also the repository of many of my books on design. Yes that is an old Imac that I am very attached to. I still do much of my graphic layout work, for projects on this machine, but internet and auto cad I do on my MacBook Pro that I take everywhere with me.
I have being completing a research project on Venetian textiles and during the course of this project I have looked at many magazines. I found this image of a charming two seater sofa. This featured in quite an old Vogue living magazine from the early 1980s. It is a classic club style sofa covered in a soft cotton. Add some interesting scatter cushions and a fantastic painting, and a lovely wine table and you have a timeless setting, that could have been created yesterday. I also love the glass panelled door. Great for keeping the cat out but letting light into a dark room.
Hi I am Elizabeth an interior designer who lives in Melbourne, Australia in a little Californian Bungalow cottage with my partner, Max, who is also an Interior Designer, and our beloved furry children, Doris & Ernest. I believe that design can make our lives more rewarding and productive. I love, architecture and design theory but my everyday passion is fabrics and decoration, as I don't think we should get too serious but have fun with our homes and enjoy the process of creating our own environments. I am interested in classic cars, and collect Georgian and Mid Century furniture.
