Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Whether in her pre­vi­ous house or in her work as a pho­tog­ra­pher, Louise has al­ways loved styling the spa­ces around her. “I’m a very vis­ual per­son and love to scour Pin­ter­est and house mag­a­zines for styling in­spi­ra­tion – I’ve been an avid house magazine reader since I was about 16!” she says. Louise looks at each room as part of the en­tire home, con­tin­u­ing themes and colours to tie the rooms to­gether and cre­ate a com­plete space that feels calm and fluid rather than dis­jointed and busy. “I love blues and whites to­gether and use these through­out the house in dec­o­ra­tor items such as cush­ions, vases and throws,” she says. And although Louise likes to have her home look­ing spot-on, it is first and fore­most a fam­ily home to be lived in com­pletely. “There are no ‘food rules’ or

‘no dogs on the couch’ rules; in­stead, big blan­kets save the linen so­fas from muddy paws. There is no point hav­ing a lovely house if you can’t re­lax in it too,” she says.
