We love delving into the lives of talented creatives - and today we take a peep at the homes of two Stylists - Jane Frosh and Lucy Weight who collaborate together in their business Cool Edies, based in Sydney Australia.
Jane's home is in the Blue Mountains around a 90 minute drive from Sydney, in a turn of the Century four bedroomed weatherboard cottage. Character features such as the wooden sash windows and timber walls and floorboards have been painted black or white to provide definition and enable the grouping of Jane's varied possessions to be the focal points.
Check out the inventive combination for a table-scape above - classic pedestal table, dining chair and floral blooms - combined with model dinosaurs!
We love the way Jane has layered her home with an eclectic array of vintage, home-made (she made the cushions on the bed below at a Shibori workshop), classic and contemporary items.
It takes a certain confidence to put together a room like this - we find it so refreshing to see the originality and mix of pattern, texture and colours.
The other half of the Cool Edies partnership is Lucy Weight - whose home in the beachside suburb of Coogee in Sydney also has great period features with the plaster ceiling mouldings and polished wooden floorboards. Again it is the wonderful vignettes on display throughout this home that really provide an insight into Lucy's day-job!
Although we may not all have the same self assurance when it comes to styling our own homes, it is great to glean some tips from the professional's own houses. For example, a large canvas artwork takes the role of a bedhead here, complimented by the pop of the red accent colour from a small posy of poppies to the side, and the deep hues of blue cushions are also complimented by the simple stool at the end of the bed.
Finally - a girl cannot have too many mirrors; take a look at the dresser below - the addition of the two smaller mirrors are perfectly placed to show off the perfume bottles and accessories and suddenly this space becomes a more charming display in it's own right.
Cool Edies - we love your work! Check out their Facebook page here to see what they have been up to more recently.
