AN ELLE OF A DAY
Whenever I get asked about our home being photographed I always get a little bit apprehensive. I think it is a big deal sharing this part of your life with the greater unknown. When Elle Magazine came calling there wasn’t much to think about. I love the magazine, I love the girls that create it and they were happy to let me be involved with the creative process. Our home is more then four walls and a roof. It is The Giving Tree of bricks and mortar. It is centre stage to our family framework but it would not have its heart and soul without the people that live in it.
The style of the house is largely dictated by their loves and needs which has resulted in an undefinable interior style which we call shipwrecked and straight up crazy. Come in and have a cuppa.
Thank you to Amy Starr and the Elle team for pretty much just being awesome. Amy you are a trooper. Pregnant with morning sickness and straight off an early bird flight she arrived with flowers a big smile and her very cute mum. Magic Mike who else gets our family like you. Big love for your creative generosity. Kenyon the day is always better with you here, thanks for behind the scenes. Nana another fun day of creative mayhem, where would we be without you and your beautiful treasures. xxx
We want to thank all our friends and family for the treasures they have shared with us that fill our home and (as Sugar would say) our bucket. A feather from a walk, herbs shared from a garden, blankets knitted and furniture found.
