As the creative director behind The Gentry - a design business that has undertaken a slew of well-known interiors projects - Kelly Ross also happens to be my teacher at the International School of Colour and Design. Having travelled for 13 years as a set, props and scenic creative for theatre, she's had quite an artistic journey so far. I sat down for a chat with this Sydney-based Creative to find out more about her business, her role at iscd and what she considers to be her finest moment.
Alert the presses, Creatives; I have been converted! Once a lover of all things light and bright in interiors (you know, sunshine and lollipops, a place where it's always spring), this release from style maven Abigail Ahern has given me a wondrous appreciate of interiors with mood. The pictures within this release are somewhat dark, very alluring and quite unlike anything I've laid eyes upon in an interiors book (and you know I have many).
Jayde Leeder is one busy gal. Not only is she a mother to two little ones (six-year-old Iggy and 14-month-old Minty - who Jayde tells me suffers from FOMO and thinks she’s 27), but she co-owns my fave store for all things stationery, Little Paper Lane, in the Sydney suburb of Mona Vale. I sat down with the former makeup artist and learnt a few things about stationery, running a family business and her hatred of tomatoes!
