A few weeks back — just before jetting off across the world — I was invited by Freedom Australia to pop down to the Moore Park store and style a living scene using pieces from the new Spring / Summer range.
Now I could have picked the living space option, starting with a faux brick wall and a gorgeous lounge in-situ, but for so much as I wanted to live my dream of having a stylish living room (if only for an hour) I felt I should probably go for the dining space instead.
It was at this point, presented with the equivalent of a blank piece of paper, that my heart skipped a beat, or three.
And so with the clock ticking down I went for a very technical approach…
- collect all of the things and put them on the table
- take things out until it works
Plates and glasses and boards and cutlery were layered and stacked, then re-layered and stacked.
Some items were replaced with things spotted from across the floor, some were non-negotiable inclusions (hello marble-print plates), others were edited out all together.
There was a hunt for chairs, a round of picture-hanging antics that resulted in exactly what we started with in the first place, and a pendant light for good measure.
And then, all of a sudden, the empty space was no longer empty.
So I did exactly what you’d expect me to do — I gave the staff an OH&S heart attack and stood on a chair. Yes, I took my shoes off first.
I’ve put together a few of my favourite items that appeared across all the scenes — but the best part of it all is that you can win a $100 voucher from Freedom to spend on the Spring / Summer collection (or anything else you desire).
