Decor, like personal style, can be full of neutrals or bold with color. When it comes to color, they can be jewel tones, soft tones, or burst of colors. In my opinion, no one can do happy, brilliant color and pattern better than Australian designer Anna Spiro. To be honest, my main reason for wanting to hop on a 17 hour Quantas flight would be to head straight to Anna’s store Black & Spiro. Her designs incorporate classic pattern and cheerful color. Spiro can also design a gallery wall to the likes you have never seen. They are collected, relaxed, and eclectic.
Blue and white is also an area of expertise of Spiro, but not in the traditional sense. Her use of blue and white throughout decor is modern, updated, and invigorating. In some rooms, it can also give a sense of stability and classic style. If you haven’t explored her work, do yourself a favor and check out her website. Also, her book Absolutely Beautiful Things will be available on Amazon October 6th. I can promise you it is definitely worth the colorful read!
