"The trick is that without the artwork and soft furnishings the home is actually very natural and not that girly. This has always been our approach with interiors - keeping the base neutral means you can completely change the mood with art and furnishings."
Studio:
“Before we moved here, every ‘studio’ I had before was either crammed into a corner of a room or on the kitchen table. I feel very lucky to have this now and I honestly feel a little surge of excitement every morning when I walk in.”
Megan’s most beloved room in the house. The walls are decorated with stucco that harmonize with the classic sofa for two. The colors are Megan's favorite - white, black and turquoise. And, of course, the main decor - her favorite vintage illustrations and photos.

Bedroom:

Trendy black and white stripes are surprisingly in tune with the classic Bergère armchair, soft lambskin rug and wrought iron bed, above which there is Megan's graphics.

"The first trick: is putting lots of white with black. If absolutely everything is white it always looks dirty, but if you put lots of white and sections of black beside it, the white always looks clean - even if it isn't."

Bathroom:


Continuation of glamour brought to absolute luxury - thanks to the combination with Baroque elements (massive framed mirrors). Luxurious and concise at the same time.

Details:

Little details are as important as the furniture and decoration. For a true artist there are not "minor details", each detail plays its role in creating a beautiful and original interior.

Air of Elegance - the Home of Megan Hess

celebrity-homes-megan-hess-creative-home
“Every single inch of it is built around how we like to live and the things we love.”
Glossy lifestyle magazines like to bring us to the homes of celebrities. "Adore Home" (April-May 2013) has devoted several pages of the home interior of an artist well known in the West.

Megan Hess began her career in Australia as art director for advertising studios and then moved to London, where her talent was appreciated. She illustrates the Candace Bushnell’s books including "Sex and the City." In her portfolio there are drawings of other well-known books including an autobiography First Lady of the United States.

Still the main talent of the artist is revealed in her drawings on the theme of fashion and interiors. Contributing leading fashion houses such as Tiffany, Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Guerlain and Bvlgari, Megan Hess has found her own unique style and has become one of the most wanted illustrators in the world of graphic advertising.

I invite you to take a walk in Megan’s sophisticated penthouse in Melbourne, where the illustrator lives with her husband and their two children.

The couple confess that they had argued on every square inch to create a space they really enjoy.
“I initially thought the space was completely crazy,” she says. “It was the entire roof of an 18th century church! The location was perfect and it was enormous BUT it was a roof. Craig took photos, scanned them into the computer and started to show me where we would put walls and how it would work (the perks of being married to an architect!). As soon as I saw that I knew it would be perfect.”
Living room, dining room and terrace

The combined living room, dining room and kitchen amaze with their size and atmosphere. The secret - the combination of white and black strokes create amazing freshness and style. Luxury sofa "Chesterfield" is an evergreen classic, but its white version particularly makes it look refine.

The main decoration of Megan’s living room are black and white photos of the incomparable Audrey Hepburn – Megan’s favorite actress.
“Audrey Hepburn has such an iconic look that still resonates with me today”

The balcony is designed as an extension of the living area.
“Craig loves to BBQ out there and I just love to put my feet up on the sunbather benches with a nice glass of wine and watch the sun go down over Port Melbourne. I could sit out there for hours.”

The Greek Goddess adds a classical touch in the terrace.

As a complement - animalic zebra patterned plaid and pillows with black prints.

Kitchen:

A glamorous chic - black tiles effectively contrast with the white surfaces of furniture.
Over the kitchen counter we can see a unique solution in the spirit of Louis XV.

You will need pine planks - if you don't have pine planks, use planks from any old dressers or cupboards, saw, two acrylic or latex paints (one darker and one lighter), vaseline, sandpaper, beautiful jar (or bottle), metal mount, metal fittings, screws.

How to do it yourself:

Step 1 Cut the pine plank in desired size with saw. Then use sandpaper to clean and round the edges and corners of the plank.
