INTERVIEW | MICHAELE SIMMERING







Michaele Simmering and her husband Johannes Pauwen of Kalon Studioswere always making things for their home - from door pulls to tables. “There has always been a lot of willing effort to invest our time and energy in our home environment,” she says. Part of the reason was that they were quite picky about the pieces they wanted in their home, and another was that they struggled to find items that...

INTERIOR INSIGHT | GORROW HOUSE BY MARIKA JARV






It has been almost 10 years since architect Marika Jarv designed the interiors of Gorrow House in Bondi. Yet they still stand strong and are a testament to her astute eye. As has been the case with a few of Marika’s projects over the years - she predated a trend. She was one half of PrintDollsthat created destination bus scrolls before they were endlessly copied.

INTERVIEW | MELANIE STAPLETON







The world of floristry has changed a lot over the past 10 years or so, as Melanie Stapletonis all too well aware. While it is now aligned with design and creative industries, that wasn’t always the case. “When I started floristry - 24 years ago - it was very much considered a trade,” she says. “The kind of thing you did if you weren’t smart enough to get into uni! Things are so different now the...

INTERVIEW | AMBER CRESWELL BELL







I think that everyone is born with at least one dependable tool in their toolbox,” says Amber Creswell Bell. For the Sydney-based writer, it has been her skill with words that has provided the foundation for her career. But in recent years, her toolbox has expanded as Amber has diversified and added the title of curator to her name and, more recently, author.

INTERVIEW | EMILIE DELALANDE

INTERVIEW | KATE TUCKER







Once artist Kate Tuckerstopped worrying about what others thought of her work, the response was immediate. “Other people saw something in it that spoke to them,” she says. The catalyst for the change in her mindset was becoming a mother six years ago. “After my son Jasper was born I started painting in a new, simpler way, which reflected the way my whole worldview had changed through becoming a...
