When I mentioned being a fan of the Australian stylist and blogger Jason Grant in Friday's post, I made a mental note to share some of his work with you in the near future. As it turns out, the gorgeous home I've chosen for today just happens to have been styled by Jason for the Jan/Feb issue of Inside Out. Not only that, it's the home of talented artist Kirra Jamison, so you get two inspiring creatives for the price of one!
Kirra's home in Melbourne is a partially converted industrial warehouse, perfect for showcasing her incredible art collection. I love the walls which are a mix of exposed concrete bricks and blocks. Walking through our future home on the weekend (currently a building site), I couldn't help but visualise it with the concrete blocks left exposed. It's such a cool look, and despite not being suited our home's aesthetic, I'd think about trying it next time!
Painted white, Kirra's walls provide the ideal backdrop for the colour and pattern that bursts from both Kirra's art and those by other artists, such as the watercolour painting by Luisa Rossitto in the living room above. Cushions from Castle, Anthropologie and Beci Orpin tie in perfectly.
If this is your first time being introduced to Kirra, then I urge you to take a look at her artwork series, Love Me Two Times. Exhibited at the Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts in 2011, I would love to own one of these colourful pieces one day. Kirra has put one in her dining area above and it looks amazing.
