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 been reorganising my rather large stash of fabrics and I have been doing a little reminiscing about past projects. One fabric I came across I have always loved. I can't remember where we used it but I am sure it was used for fabulous curtains with strong graphic borders and possibly a bonded blind with the border applied to the base. This is my favourite colour way, brown,black and it is very classic. The design was by Warner Fabrics and was called Oakleaf Trellis and was printed onto a lovely crisp cotton chintz. I think this one is due for a revival it is very today.
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.
