Decorating with Everyday Objects

Jul 2012

Last year around this time I introduced you to est magazine from Australia. The content is global in scope with a unique twist from down under. Now celebrating their one year anniversary, I thought I’d let you see what they are up to.

This issue is filled with fresh ingredients: a travel guide to NYC from an Aussie’s perspective {featuring a few of my very favorite spots}, delicious recipes and, as always, sumptuous interiors. I was most taken however, by the interior shots of every day objects allowed to shine and become very special when given their own spotlight. Take a look…

Luxury knitwear designer Caroline Swift is currently obsessed with ceramics ” too good to put in the cupboard “.

Pantone’s color of the year Tangerine Tango, makes an appearance in the trend report by stylist AnoukB.

How elegant do these everyday objects look when color consultant Emily Loxton lets them take center stage?

And when creative consultant Graham Moss displays his take on the theme?

A crazy whirlwind of twine is in sharp contrast to the earthy, soothing design of Moss’
living space, yet is quite at home because of the harmonious color scheme.

Finally, high profile photographer, Martyn Thompson’s wall of frames is simple and elegant while making a grand impact.

Does this have you thinking about new ways to display your everyday objects?
