The owners of this apartment in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Carlton wanted a fresh look for their apartment. They asked interior designers Hecker Guthrie to inject some vibrancy into their decor. The result is a beautiful balance of color and lightness. The furniture pieces from Danish brand Hay give a Scandinavian vibe. I love the beautiful art work in the various spaces, which gives a lot of character to the apartment.

COTTON & FLAX HOME DECOR AND ACCESSORIES

cottonflax-1

Cotton & Flax offers modern home decor and accessories, designed and handmade in California, USA. Erin Dollar is the owner, maker, and designer behind Cotton & Flax. Each step of the process is completed by Erin, beginning with the pattern design and the selection of heirloom quality fabrics. She draws each pattern by hand using brush and ink, and the drawing is later transferred to a silkscreen to create multiples on textiles. When it comes time to do the printing, Erin scours local sources to find beautiful linen and linen blend fabrics to hand print with her designs. She then carefully hand prints each piece of fabric with her original designs, which she later sews into pillows, teatowels, napkins, or coasters. The striking hand drawn patterns set Cotton & Flax textiles apart as a blending of fine art and fine craft. In using traditional methods to print each textile piece, Erin hopes to share her love of printmaking, and to promote greater public interest in owning unique, handmade home goods.
