Interior Design Inspirations – Across My Desk

Across my desk is a continuous stream of fantastic interior design products and services. They come my way via newsletters, magazines, websites, social media, television shows and just about everywhere in my daily life.

In the past I have created a blog series called WithIn The Pages where I’ve written about my favourite items from interior design magazines like Home Beautiful, Inside Out Magazine, Real Living, Belle, Vogue Living and more but there are other items I want to add so in this new series called Across My Desk I will add everything that comes my way and peaks my interest.

A lot of my time at present is spent finalising our new, soon to be released Kitchen Design 101 ecourse, so there is no real surprise that kitchen products and services are top of my thoughts yet everything interior design is still my interest, so with that thought this is what has come across my desk lately.

Marston Architects completed K Apartment their brief was to modernise a dark original apartment by opening walls and using a reflective palette of European oak parquetry, Calacatta Vagli stone and joinery elements. With light flooding the space it celebrated the period details. The Marcel Wanders “Mad Queen” armchair looks amazing and is available from Poliform.

The elegant Ouef Perch bunk bed colour Birch is the perfect centrepiece for any child’s room. Its compact footprint leaves plenty of room for play and additional furnishings. The versatile Perch easily separates into a loft bed and a standalone single bed, giving many configuration options.

Australian standards recommend the top bunk for children nine years and older. (Weight limit for the top bunk is 115kg.)

The Banksia Wallpaper from Porters Points in colour Siltstone was a bold choice used on the channel 9 tv show The Block by Sarah and Jason for the guest bedroom week. Its dark colour modernised a traditional pattern and looked fantastic with matching dark walls and white trim.

The Oslo Bedhead from Heatherly Design seen on The Block last week in the guest bedroom by Ronnie and Georgia was very nice with its wider size reaching either side of the bedside table. It gives a more luxurious look.

I couldn’t go past adding something for the kitchen, right now I’m really liking the new 90cm wide DishDrawer™ Dishwasher from Fisher & Paykel. Designed for the whole family, the DishDrawer™ Wide dishwasher complements the Fisher & Paykel 900mm product range to deliver a total kitchen solution. Providing space for nine place settings, the™DishDrawer™ Wide is suited to medium-sized households and can be partnered with additional drawers to cater for larger families.
