Such a great color blue in this little Sydney cottage. I painted our library this color in one of our old houses. It looked amazing with white book shelves.

I love these natural tones, so very calming. I love the creamware with the natural wood. I admire people who can master this look. It takes discipline. I would have a hard time resisting a few splashes of color. Pink velvet and leopard print get me every time. …

There’s a lovely feature on the home of Sydney woman Wendy Paterson in this month’s Vogue Living Australia, showcasing her taste for simplicity…

Paterson spends her weekends “fossicking” for treasures at flea markets and antique stores.
She tells Vogue Living: “I always want my home to be better on Monday than it is on Friday because of something new I’ve found.”

“I always want to pare things back so that each object has its own space
– to decorate with the lightest touch.”

Paterson says: “I love the ghosts of past owners.”

When she renovated her house, she kept a saying on a wall:
“White is not the mere absence of colour.”

…LOVE her cameo collection…
