A weekend styling retreat with the best in the business... Julia Green, from Greenhouse Interiors

 
Photographer: Stephanie Rooney

Photographer: Stephanie Rooney

 

If Julia Green had a dollar for every time she has been asked for advice on establishing a career in the interior styling world, she could very likely pack up her props and trade them in for a life of luxury.

As a leader in the industry, it’s a question Julia fields on a daily basis, from budding stylists of all ages and from all backgrounds.

So, armed with a wealth of industry information and her own styling secrets, the founder of Greenhouse Interiors decided to share her knowledge with those looking to establish themselves in this highly-sought-after field.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres01.jpg
 

She recently threw open the doors to her Barwon Heads home for a weekend-long workshop where six aspiring stylists, who were given the opportunity to learn what it takes to turn a passion for interior styling into a career.

The workshop covered all aspects of the industry, from understanding personal style to working with photographers and other suppliers, as well as how to win business in this highly-competitive field. Guest speaker Samantha Firestone also shared her knowledge of the importance of digital strategy, social media and marketing.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres06.jpg
 

A morning yoga session and an evening glass or two of bubbles offered a perfect contrast to the otherwise fast-paced schedule.

The workshop culminated in a professional photo shoot where participants brought to life their interior concepts using a new range of artworks by Greenhouse Interiors artists Brent Rosenberg, Morgan Jamieson, Prudence Caroline and Kimmy Hogan.

The resulting imagery showcased students’ personal style combined with their newly-garnered interior styling knowledge, and ensured each left with full hearts and minds as well as magazine-worthy folio pieces to rival the best in the business.

 
GI_workshop_18march_lowres08.jpg
 

‘This retreat was a money-can’t-buy experience and was one of the best weekends of my life! Although we were six complete strangers and have different end goals, we all seemed to be at the same stage. Waiting at the start line, a little unsure how to actually start or to reach the next stage. Julia’s energy and passion is contagious and she quickly got everyone to open up and really trust each other in an incredibly supportive environment. Although this weekend was about styling, it was just as much about backing yourself and just going for it. By the end of the weekend, we all left with our hearts and inspiration cups overflowing – not to mention some beautiful imagery to compliment our portfolio’s!’ said participant Alex.

Bright futures, and a solid game plan now await this group of creatives armed with the passion and know how.

Introducing Ames.... new to Meizai

 

Ames Creative Director Ana María Calderón Kayser not only lives between different cultures herself, but since establishing her label, has also been collaborating with designers from different countries to develop furniture and interior accessories that would appeal to the hearts and minds of cosmopolitans.

True to this tradition, the Sala collection designed by Sebastian Herkner is shaped by various cultural influences. For his Ames Sala collection, he ventured into two new territories: Colombia was a new destination for him and, for the first time, he developed an entire home collection.

The result is a range of modern home accessories, including throws, rugs, cushions, vases, baskets and bowls whose forms and colours reflect the diversity and characteristics of Colombia.

Meizai is proud to be the exclusive distributor of Ames products in Australia in partnership with Halcyon Lake who is distributing the range of rugs from the Sala Collection.

The ames sala collection is inspired by Colombia and its people and by traditional Colombian crafts. The country’s diversity and characteristics are mirrored in the products’ shapes and colours. I was particularly inspired by the archetypical forms I encountered in Bogotá’s Gold Museum, the Museo del Oro. The home collection features my signature style but it is rooted in Colombia, where all the products in the collection are handcrafted according to time-honoured traditions.” - Sebastian Herkner

Hunting for George transform converted warehouse apartment for the launch of their newest collection 'Welcome Home'...

 

Shot on location in a converted Gas Regulating House in North Melbourne, Hunting for George's latest collection 'Welcome Home' is every bit as stunning as the apartment itself!

New textiles from Hunting for George feature new materials including linen, chambray, quilting, wool and leather together with their signature pure cotton. There are many stand out pieces in the collection so it’s hard to pick favourites, but some of my picks are the Polar Quilt Cover Set with diagonal quilting. The Sunday Wool Blanket made from 100% wool and the luxurious Leo Navy Leather Cushion, a dreamy deep blue leather cushion with detailed piping.

The newbies in linen include Quilt Cover Sets, Standard and Euro Pillowcases and Tableware in classic White and Charcoal. And their newest must haves are the Leather cushion accessories which are available in Tan and Navy.

The Oliver Coffee Table makes its debut as the latest addition in the Hunting for George Oliver furniture range, all Australian made and available in soft white and matte black.

Complementing the all new linen tableware, sees the launch of Hunting for George Ceramics, handmade in Melbourne and available in 3 different products: Planter, Tumbler and Espresso Cup Set.

“We fell in love with this apartment. It’s height, grandeur and age were so welcoming. The open floor plan allowed us the freedom to transform the entire home and tell a comprehensive story. We have a extensive range of products for all areas of the home and we really wanted to showcase this.” Lucy Glade-Wright, Brand Director

 

Hunting for George 'Collector' Art Series...

 

Hunting for George has welcomes their latest collection of Art Prints, the ‘Collector’ series. The collection is an exploration in painting, collage and illustration, together with a curated collection of original photography. The collection includes 24 new Art Prints across a range of styles and sizes.

To partner the launch of these new Art Prints, Hunting for George also launches its custom made frames designed to fit their entire collection. Australian made, these frames are sold pre-assembled with a multi-fit system to hang both portrait or landscape.

This launch is the first of many from Hunting for George for 2017 and includes a sneak peek of new products destined to join the Hunting for George collection including Australian made ceramics, bed linen, furniture and leather accessories.

“The energy of this collection is reflective of the environment in which it was created. Experimental and instinctive, we explored a range of mediums and techniques before refining these concepts on the computer. The creative process was incredibly refreshing. We allowed ourselves the freedom to step away and develop instinctively, and this unhurried approach creates a beautiful sense of calm in each piece.” Says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George Brand Director.

We wanted to provide a complete offering to our customers and remove the additional (and often frustrating) step of finding a frame to fit your artwork. Now our customers can put their art prints straight on the wall with no lag time, and the multi-hang system we developed means that each frame is not limited in its orientation, allowing our customers more freedom in how they choose to use their frame in the future.” Says Lucy Glade-Wright, Hunting for George Brand Director.

Lumiere’s Art & Co has launched a new collection that is just divine. Named 'Elanora' it means place beside the sea and it was shot on location in at their new Lumiere Art + Co. House on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

The house is a unique property that is furnished and styled completely with Lumiere's Emma Cleine's textiles and art, all designed and made by her. Incredibly you can now rent this beautiful property and as of 2017 Emma will be offering workshops from here too... time to get your creative juices flowing! 

I made and designed every artwork and textile in this home for this home. I mostly loved designing the girls room with the bunk bed. The double sided quilts and artwork I made for this room with strong line and painterly florals mark a new direction for Lumiere, however, its still so true to my style and aesthetic,” said Emma.

The collection ranges from art to textiles and is as colourful, intricate and beautiful as always.

Glasshouse Terrariums - The Art Series...

 

I love love love indoor grennery if you didn't already know and I am so happy to show you the new Art-House Series - a collaboration between Glasshouse Terrariums and Rachel Bainbridge Art. Taking nature and art to the next level they have brought together on trend terrariums, kokedama moss balls and airplants with contemporary original resin art. 

The series is the brainchild of Sarah Triolo of Glasshouse Terrariums and Rachel Bainbridge of Rachel Bainbridge Art, two young Melbourne mothers with a shared passion for style and quality. The women have joined forces to create a range of beautiful pieces of art and living greenery for the home that are all unique and can be custom-designed to incorporate individual colour schemes.

According to Sarah, terrariums and indoor plants that require minimal maintenance have become very popular in recent times reflecting the space-limited and time-poor life many of us lead. In keeping with this, the new series offers stylish pieces of art that house easy to care for plants that don’t require a “green thumb” and take up minimal space.

Resin art is water resistant which is an important quality when being used with plants and the sleek glass-like finish is the perfect complement to a terrarium range” said Sarah.

Our Art-House Series currently consists of both a monochrome collection and a pastels collection with various resin art hanging platforms, a modern take on the vertical garden using resin artwork to hold airplants, resin art trays as bases for kokedamas and hand painted resin terrarium bases. We have created pieces that are fresh and original and full of heart. We would be proud to have these in our homes and we hope our customers feel the same” she said.

We feel proud that each piece is completely handmade by ourselves, and that every piece we offer is unique.  We both feel very strongly about creating something that is of high quality and sustainable so that customers are buying a product that is made to last” concluded Sarah.

I was super lucky and received the below Kokedama resin art tray with the most beautiful Devils Ivy... It is superbly made, lush and green and is a lovely addition to my home, now to pick a spot for him to live!

-           Airplant resin wall art RRP $140 (incl. airplant)   -           Hanging resin art kokedama platform RRP $200 (incl. kokedama)   -           Terrarium with hand-painted resin art base RRP $185   -           Kokedama resin art tray RRP $85 (incl. kokedama)

Tell us about United Artworks, what path led you to starting an online Gallery?

United Artworks is an online retailer and gallery based in Australia, specialising in made to order hand paintings, prints and design-inspired wall art. Conceived from within a furniture store, we held an underlying passion for artwork and continually saw that our furniture business grew stronger in the areas of décor and wall art. This led us to start focusing on a dedicated range which developed into a whole new website and business… and here we are!

We love United Artworks style – Can you tell us about the creative process you go through when selecting/designing/making/buying art?
Our inspirations are drawn from colour and movement essentially, with a clear focus toward interior design, and understanding which interiors will work best with our artworks. We are constantly sourcing new ideas and interior trends around the world (Instagram and Pinterest is regularly bookmarked), and bringing them to the market here in Australia. We usually start with a single concept or idea, whether it be a texture, tone or movement – and work with our team of artists both locally and worldwide to develop new works for us. We also often receive submissions from artists who are interested in collaborating with us and this often sparks new ideas too.

How would you describe the Art that is available for purchase at United Artworks?

We have always had a penchant for abstract expressionism and perhaps it is what we do best. From original artworks provided by art director in house, Julie Robertson (USA) to the flowing free forms of Lanette Rose (NSW, Australia), we love colour and movement when it balances beautifully in harmony on the canvas. We’re also loving the minimalist movement within the interior design space and have introduced a large series of art which focuses more on texture and tone. From moody hues, vivid brights, monochromes to pastel colours – there’s so many choices to suit different tastes. The biggest difference (no pun intended) about our products is that the artworks are all produced in larger sizes so they are ready to make a big statement in any room.

What can we expect next for United Artworks and do you have any new collections/artists/collaborations coming out soon?

We are constantly sourcing new, upcoming and established artists to collaborate with so our clients and customers view new pieces in our online gallery almost weekly. We have handpicked a number of artists who are currently working on their curated collections with us for 2016 – stay tuned. Besides artwork, we are always finding ways to extend our art and design into other mediums – most recently we launched a new collection of acrylic wall panels with stunning digital designs, and a range of indoor/outdoor appropriate cushions digitally printed from our favourite artworks.

Biggest ‘pinch me’ moment so far?

Working alongside talented artists on a daily basis gives us a daily ‘pinch me’ moment because it truly is such a creative and buzzing environment – we’re constantly working on new projects, new ideas, new collaborations, new products – usually all at the same time! The most recent exciting project would have to be our newly launched art collaboration with Alisa & Lysandra (https://www.unitedartworks.net/artwork/alisa-lysandra) from The Block Series. Launching this collection and working with the girls has been an amazing journey and one of our biggest projects yet – seeing it all come together at the photo shoot was a real ‘moment’ for us. Lastly, stumbling upon our artwork on TV (The Block, Selling Houses Australia, The Living Room) is a brilliant ‘pinch me’ moment when you least expect it at home.

What are your top design and decorating tips?
1. Start With Art: more and more interior decorators and stylists are choosing to work their designs around a piece of artwork first. Find a piece that really resonates with you and use the colours to set the tone for the rest of the room. If the artwork has many colours, pick out 2-3 to pair back with other pieces such as cushions, throws and small décor items. If the artwork has minimal colours, choose a statement or contrasting colour to add some interest and depth to your space. Sometimes it is easier starting with the art first, as opposed to struggling to fit the last piece of the puzzle in with an artwork that doesn’t really tick all the boxes!

2. Art doesn’t just belong on a wall! Hanging artwork doesn’t end at just one painting on one wall. If you are using a wall, you could create a ‘gallery wall look’ by hanging a few different complimenting pieces in staggered formation and create your own cluster of art, or even choose two ‘sister’ artworks (art that has a complimentary/contrasting twin – like in our ‘Perfect Pairs’ series https://www.unitedartworks.net/artwork/perfect-pairs) and hang them side by side for effect. Renters don’t miss out either – instead of tapping into a wall, lean your statement art against a buffet table or sideboard to create a relaxed feel, or even lean the art on the floor, against a side wall, for a lofty-vibe.

3. Size Matters. The size of your artwork is relevant to the size of your wall and the feature you want to create. You know you have overdone it when your artwork is overpowering your space, and vice versa, you know you have under delivered if you wall looks somewhat empty and sparse in comparison to the rest of the room. Handy tip – use masking tape to mark out the length and height of the canvas space on your wall and take a picture of this space. Send it to us and we can send you back the ‘wall art preview’ (https://www.unitedartworks.net/original-art-paintings/services/preview-art-on-your-wall/) where we have digitally imposed the artwork into that taped area. This is such a convenient service as it allows you to truly visualise what it will look like in your room.

The Hunting Collective...

This year Hunting for George collaborated with 12 different creatives from a variety of mediums to create the much talked about Hunting Collective. Including fine art, illustration, collage, street art, design, craft and photography, each artist was given a blank Hunting for George clock and an open brief. The result is an incredible array of 12 limited edition time machines that encapsulate each individual artists signature style. 

As every creative involved is so unique, Hunting for George decided not to put a price on the finished clocks but to instead let the buyers to decide. Hunting for George are hosting a launch party on Thursday November 20 and the finished clocks will be on show and then the online auction will kick start to allow everyone, not just Melbourne folk, to secure a one off clock. 

Hunting for George is a proud supporter of local talent and the majority of sales from each clock goes back to the artist. With every clock sold they are also supporting local business, Waverly Industries; a not for profit organisation that provides support and employment for people with disabilities. Their incredible team of employees now manufacture all Hunting for George clocks- and Hunting for George say " they do a much better job than we ever did'.
