Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 25 Winter 2010 Contents Art of living... we all have our passions, favourite pieces and preferred styles
when it comes to our interiors -- no matter what the trend forecasters are
saying. And, really, it comes as no surprise when you consider we all have
di erent cultural backgrounds and experiences. So, as we prepare to retreat
inside during the cooler months, we celebrate the 'art' of the individual, personalised home.
This space is a place where we can reflect, indulge and evolve with all
the things we love (or love this minute!) around us. Robert and Trish Juniper's Darlington
house (p124) is a beautiful example of this, where art and architecture mirror the di erent
stages in the artist's life and their time as a couple. Our Argentine (p156) and Eagle Bay
(p142) homes visually talk of the owners' passions for a bushland outlook, and our Munich
(p135) and inner-city Perth (p148) spaces speak of an eye for beauty and passion for
exploration into the world and the world of art, respectively.
Design is encouraging our way forward. From furniture design to
architectural design, the innovators are coming up with products and places that allow
us to express who we are. Just turn to our roundup of the hottest style trends (p25) and
inspiring designs from the Milan Furniture Fair (p91) to see what we mean. And turn to our
picks of the WA entrants in the Australian Institute of Architects Awards (p103) to see how
the professionals are pushing boundaries to produce designs that reflect personal lifestyle
needs and the location in which they sit.
We hope you enjoy this issue of Insite magazine.

20 INSITE WINTER
Anne-Maree Sargeant and I did the hard
(but inspiring) yards at the Milan Furniture
Fair in April. While I am highlighting the
hottest pieces, Anne-Maree is filling us in
on the new faces to watch and the icons to
revisit. With a huge background in design
(interior design stints in Sydney and London,
10 years with Space Furniture, working with
the big designers and brands in Australia
and attending Milan fairs for over 20 years),
she knows her stu . From p91.
Anything nature-related is a huge trend for
interiors this year. Woodgrain, raw branches,
natural materials... As we continue to
embrace a more eco-sound way of living
and learn to appreciate the world around
us, we are bringing in these elements. We
have put our home from Argentina on the
cover because it is a sophisticated example
of this. Cement, timber, organic forms and
windows that frame bushland mix with strong
angles for a modern home. Photography
