Relaxed, laid back and elegant is how I would describe Australian interiors and they are a great inspiration. I adore all Australian magazines and love seeing the mix of classic pieces with quirky casual numbers in many of the homes that are featured. The colour palette often times reflects the landscape; wood, water, sand, sea and sky. I recently discovered the homeware brand Aura http://www.aurahome.com.au and I have to say their bed linen is beautiful. Some images below – incorporating such beautiful colourways as moss, olive, a bruised sky grey, peacock and jade. If nothing else its a fabulous reference in how to introduce colour whether that’s zingy petrol blue or a softer hue into any scheme. Colour is clever it uplifts, it relaxes, it energises personally I advise overdosing on it.
