The master bedroom is flooded with natural light, illuminating Louisa's New Yorker trunk that she designed for her line of luxury storage solutions, Trunked by Louisa Lawless.
主人房沐浴於天然光中，照亮著Louisa的New Yorker儲物箱，這款自家品牌Trunked by Louisa Lawless作品專門用來擺放珍貴精品。
The resulting space is abundant in taste and character. The living and dining areas are characterised by vibrant artworks set against muted, modern furnishings. A winding hallway takes you to the master bedroom, the children’s rooms, the guest room and the study, before arriving in the large open kitchen, where the colours truly pop. When asked about the most beloved artworks in their collection, Louisa points out a few: a piece by famed Australian artist Nicholas Harding, which was acquired when she and her husband got married; a work recently purchased from Art Central that hangs above the kitchen table; the black-and-white photographic portrait of Georgia Jagger that graces the entryway; and a bronze sculpture of a mother and son that was purchased on one of her many work trips to India. "When I travel somewhere and like it there, what I try to do is always bring one small thing back," she explains.
During the week, the living room doubles up as a home office and a play room, with Louisa taking care of laptop business on the sofa, simultaneously keeping an eye on the kids in their generous play area next to the seating arrangement. Weekends mean barbecues on the terrace or even the odd visit from a family member from Australia. During our shoot, Louisa is in and out, answering work emails and – at the end of the day – welcoming her children home after an afternoon of swimming at the nearby Ladies Recreation Club. Serving as the site where the couple’s children will grow up and where her business will certainly flourish, this home is set to see plenty of energetic days to come. //偌大的開放式廚房，色彩就在這兒大爆發。問到最心愛的藝術品為哪時，Louisa就表示是著名澳洲藝術家Nicholas Harding之作——她跟丈夫結婚時購下；一道最近在Art Central購下的藝術品，掛於廚房桌上方；黑白色Georgia Jagger肖像就為走道注入型格品味；母子銅雕塑則由她前往印尼出差時買下。她解釋：「每次到訪某地而又深深愛上時，我就會在當地買紀念品回家。」
客廳在閒日兼作家居辦工室和遊玩室，Louisa安坐沙發忙著在電腦管理業務時，也可同時看管孩子。周末一家可以在陽台燒烤，或甚至款待遠自澳洲而來的親友。我們拍攝期間，Louisa就不停出出入入應付繁忙工務，下午就到附近的女子俱樂部接剛上完游泳課的孩子回來。這就是孩子和業務茁壯成長的重地，孕育未來更多繁華日子。// HO≤E JOURNAL
