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…

The magazine is available on Zinio.

    Such a beautiful space. I love what she said about her place being better on Friday than on Monday. That is such an incredible philosophy.
