Back to Melbourne today for another local home – this is the home of Melbourne artist and Outre Gallery manager Gemma Jones! I have been chasing Gemma for a home tour for little while, and finally squeezed in a visit to her fab Yarraville pad last Monday (just before hopping on the plane!)
Gemma’s home is actually a cool old shopfront – she has set up her office and studio in the shop section at the front, and beyond is a 2 bedroom home she shares with one housemate and one super cute cat! I love the brave colours (yellow walls!!), and all the wonderful little details in every nook! Not surprisingly, Gemma’s fantastic collection of artworks and framed prints is very enviable – there’s a brilliant mix of work by talented artist friends, family, and many of the brilliant artists represented by Outre.
Huge thanks to Gemma for sharing her home! She is so super sweet, she gave me tea and cake – I am so spoilt! You can find Gemma many places all over the web… do check out her website, her brilliant blog and her artwork on etsy and Flickr …AND like all the best internet addicts, she’s on Twitter too ;)
Thanks so much Gemma! x
