IT WAS STANDING ROOM ONLY when the Belle team launched its new book, Smart Spaces, at M Contemporary, an elegant art gallery in Sydney’s Woollahra. The handsome volume introduces readers to an incredible array of beautifully conceived spaces, all Australian designed by leading creative names like Richards Stanisich, Greg Natale, Justine Hugh-jones, Tom Ferguson and Anna-carin Mcnamara, to name just a few. The book was designed by Belle’s creative director Joshua Morris and art director Cathryn Zhang and is on sale now. Guests enjoyed delicious catering from the team at Plated and an array of more-ish Lisa Mcguigan wines. The launch coincided with an impressive exhibition by South African artist Michael Taylor. Smart Spaces is available at good book stores and from magshop.com.au/belle-smart-spaces.
