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.
As you know I love shopping for antiques and second hand treasures. One of my favourite places is Newlyn Antiques in country Victoria. Faye and John are always very welcoming . They have a lovely complex with an old hall and cottage and a shed set in pretty gardens. The interiors are laid out with furniture and old wares in pretty tableaus, colour coded or themed. I can always find something to take home and inspire me. Of course a piece of blue and white willow pattern can be added to our laundry. This is my latest purchase. I attach their website details and now I can spend time searching their premises online, which could be quite problematic.http://newlynantiques.smugmug.com
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.
