HOUSE CALL // joanna, sydney
by A NOTE FOR ME
I thought I would show you a few pics of some of my favourite spots from around my own home. Those Art Deco armchairs have a matching three seater lounge and were an amazing find. Years ago I was driving on the way to a friend’s place and went past a vintage store and they caught my eye. Needless to say a quick u-turn and an even quicker purchase only delayed me a little – lucky I have understanding friends! They were originally in a red woven fabric but were worn out and tired. I took them to an amazing upholsterer who fixed all the springs and made new cushions and covered them in this luxurious tan leather.
Looking around I realised nearly all my pieces are pre-loved but I love the look and the stories that come with them. Even in the display cabinet above I have mixed some finds from vintage stores with personal items like those tins and matchbox from my Dad. I was one of those kids who was always going through my parents cupboards hunting for treasures. Actually I still do when I visit them, but Mum doesn’t mind as it helps her de-clutter too.
