stylist rachel brown

Styling is one of those professions. When you first learn that it's basically a job whereby people get paid to shop, it seems incredibly unfair... and perhaps a little too easy. But it's deceptive like that. Magazine stylists have to always be ahead of the times with trends. They have to create completely new looks for different magazines. Their job often also entails doing the equivalent of moving house every day. And so when you think about it like that, it's probably something most of us would rather leave to someone else. Rachel Brown is a talented stylist whose work appears in real living as well as other Australian interior magazines. She's also just launched her own homewares range Attia Home. It's immediately clear that her discerning eye has handpicked these pieces with a view to form, colour and texture. Check out Rachel's Etsy site too - I just have to have those beaded storage boxes.
