NEALE’S OBJECTS OF DESIRE
Of the moment
If I had to choose a single visual metaphor for the decorative vibe of the coming year, it would be Marrakech Design’s (marrakechdesign.se) stunning Dandelion tile, probably my favourite tile choice ever. Not a new design – it was originally launched in 2012 – it nevertheless ticks every box of the prevailing mood: botanical, artisanal, geometric and with just a hint of the Deco- era influence that continues to inform current design. How coorie works in with that mood remains to be seen. Neale Whitaker is co-host of Foxtel’s Love It Or List It Australia on Lifestyle, and a judge on Nine Network’s The Block.
