Australia has long been known as the lucky country: a land of wide open spaces, stunning coastlines and endless sunshine. Australians themselves reflect this landscape through their relaxed, friendly attitudes and equally, in their refreshingly welcoming homes. A relatively young country, Australia has created its own sense of interior style, adapting a myriad of international influences to suit the laid back nature of our lifestyle.
With inspiration from Europe, America and even Asia, a major motivation for our easy yet sophisticated home-style, is our love of the great outdoors. The open-plan look is a firm favourite with Australians as we attempt to capture our brilliant landscape and bring it into our homes. Uncluttered and comfortable, our living spaces veer away from traditional formality. Favouring practicality over perfection, our homes reflect our uniquely Aussie attitude, climate and environment.
With skilful use of light, colour and resources, Australian interior style may invoke a sense of coast, country or urban chic. Earthy reds, cool blues and sleek monotones speak volumes. Raw materials - stone, timber and glass combine with natural fibres - wool, cotton and hemp to create a spacious indoor/outdoor feel. Clever design features and creative decorating translate to airy surrounds, while the inclusion of personal items, plants, artworks and fun accessories inject personality to our homes.
