i’ve long been a big fan of melbourne, australia-based stylist, interior designer, hotelier, author, and all-around genius entrepreneur lynda gardener. you may have been, too without even knowing it, because lynda’s work has appeared in some of our favorite design magazines going back a full decade — from real living to vogue living and vtwonen her distinct and very eclectic style is one i have begun to instantly recognize and sure enough, when i check the credits, it’s the uniquely inspiring style of lynda gardener (not to mention her fashion sense, which is also quite fabulous). her new book Curate, co-created with journalist and stylist Ali Heath, reveals how to create a home that is as truly individual and personal as the images i’m sharing with you today. Lynda also currently owns and runs five boutique accommodation properties where we can stay (and host events), so i’m adding those to my must-visit travel destinations. as a lover of the vintage-modern aesthetic i so admire her work — have a gander and you’ll see what i mean, and be sure to follow lynda on instagram for much more authentic inspiration.

  1. I recently stayed at one of Lynda’s properties – The White Room in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Lynda has such a talent for creating stunning spaces. This little room was a delight to stay in. Waking up in this room felt like waking up in a still life painting.

  2. love everything she does – and those of us in the “big hair” club love her look . I have to say it – I wish she’d picked a less over appropriated and way over used word for the title of her book, I mean everyone’s a curator now .But we love her anyways .
