any see decorating as a gradual process. They tackle
it one job at a time until they’re satisfied the project
is complete. I’ve always found that for the rooms we
love to spend time in, the process never real ly stops.
Evolution is as much part of good design as furnishings and fabrics.
The homes in this issue of Scoop Homes & Art prove my point.
Each is the product of adaptations, revisions and, in some cases,
full-scale renovations. Each amendment has only made the rooms
more extraordinary and more reflective of their owners. It’s this,
and not the position of a chair or the fabric of a throw cushion,
that makes our winter homes truly fascinating. We take you from
an ambitious New York townhouse renovation on p116 to the
conversion of a North Perth corner shop into a family abode on p128.
We move to a space-saving design on a tiny Shenton Park block
on p138, and the cooler climes of the east coast to cocoon (p146),
before we look at San Francisco worker’s cottage on p156. And
lastly, we explore one of Perth’s greatest architectural icons on p162.
The youngest WA home to gain heritage protection, it’s by one of
my favourite architects, Iwan Iwanoff. On p90, we appreciate high
design in this year’s Australian Institute of Architects WA shortlist.
The trick to good decorating is to know when to stop, so look
over your rooms with a fresh eye. People keep things the same for
too long, or they don’t turn them over to reflect the season. In the
winter, heavier throws and velvet pillows are such nice things to
celebrate with. Get help editing your decor with our tactile trends
shoot (p32) and design update (p44). The must-read Milan fair wrap
up on p82 sees our man on the ground, Salvatore Fazzari, detail the
up-and-comers in the industry and cutting-edge design trends.
Feature art and antiques are perhaps the simplest way to
change the direction of a room. Take some notes from our antiques
section (p188) and see the artists to watch from p198. Our In
Focus section this issue includes a young Muslim artist, Abdul
Abdullah, whose art has inflamed anti-Islam activists (p76). It’s an
intriguing look into the power of art in multi-cultural Australia.
Change isn’t easy, and renovating is invariably more difficult
than you anticipate, but it’s a rewarding undertaking. What’s better
than your home being a reflection of who you are now and where
you have been? Design, like life, should never come to a standstill.
