Designex 2011 round-up

on Friday, I was lucky enough to spend the day at Designex with the lovely Leah from Celebrated Style and student buddy of mine. We had a great day, chatting and catching up, see, this year she is doing her subject full time and me, well I am still part time - but the exciting thing is we will be pairing up again in the second half of the year to do 2D together - should be fun.....We had lots to talk about, she loves fabrics and the soft side of Interior Design and I love the hard finishes like benches, floors and walls - we could make a good team!!!!!!

We saw lots of new and exciting things and we also got to attend an excellent seminar by well known Architect and Interior Designer Matt Gibson. He was sooo good to listen too and so inspiring. All his favorite things, just happen to be mine too. He loves to use mirrors, especially in kitchens and courtyards, he loves natural light and maximising it all all costs. He has done a number of terrace renovations in Melbourne, most of them featured in Belle and other homey mags. He has this wonderful ability to marry the decorative old with the comfortable new. Check out my favorite Reno of his yet - you can see it here
