my scandinavian home: Peek Inside Curate

my scandinavian home: Peek Inside Curate


In the past I’ve shared many boutique hotels styled by Lynda Gardener – including The White Room, The Apartment St Kilda and The Estate Trentham – and it’s safe to say, I’m a huge fan of the Australian interior designer’s work. As soon as I caught wind of a book, I knew it was going to be a good one! The beautiful new tome ‘Curate’ is the result of a lockdown collaborative project between Lynda and photographer extraordinaire Marnie Hawson in Australia as well as talented stylist and writer Ali Heath in the UK. Read on to find out more and take a peek inside! 

Ali and Lynda share a mutual love of monochrome interiors and take great joy from natural imperfections and treasured finds – concepts that pour from every page. 

The opening chapter starts you off on an inspiring journey to curate a meaningful home, covering eight core elements: palette, nature, textiles, lighting, the blend of old and new, storage, collections and art.

You’re then gently led through through a series of drool-worthy interiors which include a converted warehouse, bijoux apartment, historic cottage, country estate, a new-build barn, period townhouse and rural retreat. 

Each interior is peppered with breakout ideas, encouraging you to ignore trends and start to curate a timeless home full of pieces you love. 

All in all, a wonderful Autumn read, and a great pressie for friends who share a passion for timeless interiors! 

Curate is available online and local book stores (even if your local book store doesn’t stock it, they’re usually happy to order a copy – the same goes for local libraries!). 

Congratulations to Lynda, Ali and Marnie on a beautiful book. If anyone’s looking for me today, I’ll be right here on the sofa, leafing through the pages!
