At Home with Designer Alana John | Australian Interiors

Alana’s love for 1970s design with glamorous brass accents is clear from the front door. The entrance features a 1970s Gloss Lacquer vintage sideboard by Jean Claude Mahey and a 1970s vintage circular brass table lamp. These pieces are synonymous with an eye for London designer Michael Anastassiades’ delicate lighting, including his Mobile Chandelier 3 – the centrepiece in the dining room – and sculptural motifs that surface in the kitchen design, furniture and rugs. White walls, travertine, and restored timber flooring highlight the home’s original architectural details, while Alana’s personality is reflected in moments of vivid colour and texture, such as the burnt orange velvet Gubi beetle chairs, and her own custom pieces.

Speaking with an inherent love of her home and what’s come before, Alana’s new chapter for ‘Unalla’ captures the legacy of the women at its heart. Alana’s passion and design intuition have translated into a glamorous home, refined and playful all at once.

At Home with John Pawson | Global Interiors

One look at British designer John Pawson’s Instagram account, with its staggering 369k followers, reveals one of his passions to be photography. The feed is a celebration of light and its effect on materials, landscape, interiors and buildings; there are few words, and only intermittently featured is his lock-down puppy – a cockapoo named Lochie. “Although the aesthetic strands running through my work are pretty consistent, the influences feeding into the design process are typically eclectic, and even the most unlikely subjects can provide food for thought,” he says. Of late, the images focus on Home Farm, their country property located in the Cotswolds, which forms the backdrop to a new cookbook, a collaborative production with his wife Catherine, named Home Farm Cooking. Once a derelict series of rural buildings including a 17th-century farmhouse, cottage, stables, a barn and pigsties sprouting giant hogweed, there has been a complete shedding of generations of detritus, an architectural paring back combined with a considered material insertion and careful planning of spatial flow.

John Street by Phoebe Nicol | Australian Interiors

Phoebe Nicol says that seeking out natural light in the old home was crucial. “Additional windows and skylights were employed to bring in natural light, while the interior palette focuses on layered shades of neutrals to naturally lift the space,” Phoebe explains. This light-filled design approach continues in the new master bedroom upstairs, with textural sisal carpet, white linen and expansive skylights. The quaint ensuite nestled into the roofline reflects aspects of the Victorian bones of the home through diamond floor tiles and traditional chrome tapware.

John Bastiras Design Studio’s Melbourne-Made Furniture

From an early age, John Bastiras says he always had an affinity for furniture design. “As a child, watching my brother, now an architect, build scaled models of buildings certainly has left a mark on me – he is the catalyst for my pursuit in design,” John says. Launching his design career in his early twenties with a business collecting and restoring mid-century Scandinavian furniture, to say John Bastiras has dedicated his life to the craft of furniture is an understatement. It wasn’t until 2019 however, that John decided to launch his own range.

The JB.DS Myron Dining Table was first produced for a client who had engaged Melbourne architects Powell & Glenn to design their own home. After walking through their home, John says the minimal and peaceful palette led him to design something simple that sat well within the space. “The oval-shaped top allowed for easier flow around the space and the curved leg detail offered both softness in aesthetic and stiffness in structure,” John says. “Its curves reminded me of one of my favourite architects’ work, Myron Goldfinger, who designed beautiful sculptural homes on the outskirts of New York throughout the 1960s and 70s,” he adds.
