The beautiful Sydney apartment of interior designer Dana Hughes

Another gorgeous Sydney lovenest today… but this time it comes with a little twist! If Dana Hughes’ beautiful dining room above looks more than a little familiar… perhaps that’s because you’ve been seeing quite a lot of that bay window recently! In a particularly crazy ‘blog meets real-life’ coincidence, Dana’s beautiful pad was the home of super-stylist Megan Morton in a previous life… and the image you see on the front of MM’s fab new book Homelove, is in fact now the dining room of one miss Dana Hughes! OMG! Brilliant!

Spot the difference!

Coincidences aside, I’m sure you’ll agree that the light-filled apartment Dana shares with her hubby is utterly gorgeous and of course entirely blog-worthy in it’s own right… It has such great bones – those huge bay windows, timbers floors and beautiful detail on the architraves and ceilings etc. I love Dana’s eclectic mix of designer pieces, vintage finds, and of course the odd Ikea staple thrown into the mix is such a winning combination! It’s not surprising to learn that Dana is an interior designer by day – and she also writes the brilliant Yellowtrace blog by night – truly one of my absolute favourites recently!

HUGE thanks to Dana for sharing her delectable pad with us here! Be sure to pop over and visit her on Yellowtrace… she has impeccable taste and you will be instantly smitten I promise :) Dana also tweets over here if you are so inclined… (who isn’t?).

Oh man that vintage bike and rug combination is a match made in styling heaven. Black + white + yellow never looked so good.

Sheesh does everyone except me have a home office / study?! VERY jealous.

Details from Dana’s study

Cute bedroom, love the mix ‘n match bedlinen, awesome bed (what is that bed Dana!?) and how about the fabulous gold/white/black shoes too?!
