It’s getting harder and harder to avoid using superlatives and/or CAPITAL LETTERS when sharing these incredible Australian Homes every Wednesday.

I mean REALLY.

HOW AMAZING and truly unique is the Northcote studio and home of Melbourne artists Kirra Jamison and Dane Lovett?  Omigod!  Incredible. One of my absolute favourites so far.  (Must admit I have about 5).

There are so many ace things about this home!  The fact that it’s both a functional living and working space for Kirra and Dane.  The fact that it’s a rental, and yet Kirra and Dane have firmly put their creative stamp on the place.  The fact that they’ve filled their home with so much style and colour and brilliant quirky decorative details – all on a modest budget. The fact that this space has the distinct feeling of a Selby-esque New York loft – transplanted in Melbourne’s inner North!

Kirra and Dane have only lived here just over a year.  In that time they’ve done a lot to make their industrial space a warm and welcoming home – when they moved in it was simply a warehouse shell with basic kitchen and bathroom.  They set to work painting all the walls and the studio floor white, making the big chalkboard wall in the kitchen, and building walls downstairs in the studio to separate their two work spaces.

Kirra loves that her home has a connection to her work life.  ‘Of course there are the usual struggles to contend with when you work from home’ she says, ‘but the positive outweigh the negative’.  When bringing her paints home from the studio, Kirra realised that home had become the space in which she felt most creative – ‘it was full of the objects, colours, textures and experiences that inspire me, so to leave that space to make work somewhere else no longer made sense. And it is a real luxury especially leading up to a big show when it’s three in the morning and you can just walk upstairs and jump into bed!’.

Kirra Jamison fans will be excited to know that she’s having a solo show this month at Linden Gallery.  Sneak peek and details below!  LOOKS AMAZING!  Agh.  Such beautiful work Kirra!

Linden Innovators II
New works on paper by Kirra Jamison
Opening – 6-8pm Friday 24 June
Exhibition runs 25th June – 24th July 2011

New paintings by Kirra for the Linden Innovators II exhibition later this month!

Kirra has also recently created some stunning limited edition Giclée prints of her work, featuring hand cut vinyl appliqué to make them extra special!  Each has been made in an edition of just 6 prints signed by Kirra – and at $900, they present an affordable option if you’ve been coveting one of Kirra’s exquisite works for a while. 

AMAZINGLY, Kirra has sweetly offered one of these new prints as a giveaway today for one lucky TDF reader! The winner may select from the following two - Cosmic Might and Empty Head, each pictured below.

To be in the running, simply leave a comment on this post today Wednesday June 8th, before 10.00pm Melbourne time. A winner will be selected at random and contacted by email tomorrow!  Huge thanks to Kirra for this incredibly generous gift!  I have never wished SO BADLY that I could enter a TDF giveaway myself!

*UPDATE – Huge thanks for all your sweet comments!  A winner has now been drawn – comment #322 – congratulations John B!

Empty Head by Kirra Jamison, 90 x 53.5 cm, Giclée print and hand cut vinyl appliqué on 100% cotton rag paper, edition of 6, $900 inc. gst.

    If I had thee upon my wall
    I’d be the proudest of them all

Not to mention her cute persona! I printed off at home a copy of the work ‘empty head’ which is pinned on my board, I look at it everyday and it gives me motivation to save to try and buy this amazing piece of work one day, so this prize would go to a devoted fan!!! PLEASE CAN I WIN THIS!!!!

    wow! creative powerhouse! that is one talented couple. so inspiring to see true creatives living & breathing their art, life, work with such passion. amazing, beautiful colourful home. if i’m the lucky winner, i think i will choose ‘empty head’. ‘cosmic might’ is really beautiful, but so sad with the chains around the elephant’s legs. god forbid art could make me feel anything.. i’m much more of an empty head kind of girl :)

  • Gina 3 years ago

    I think these prints are the perfect antidote to the cold and grey! It is so good to see a home/studio that is lived in, worked in and so obviously loved and valued.

  • Emma Lindsay 3 years ago

    Thanks so much for giving me a sneek peek into Kirra & Dane’s fab warehouse space- green with envy to see the possibility of painting and living in the one space, & with loads of style (and a great pooch) to boot! I’ve had a not-so-secret crush on Kirra’s work for a long time now and pined for her a work of hers called ‘Willow Weep’ she sent me for a show I curated in BrisVegas. ‘Empty Head’ gives me those same dreamy chills so would love to win a print…
    Congrats Design Files, for another fly-on-the-wall look into a lovely home :)

  • Suz 3 years ago

    Every weekday morning for a few years now you can guarantee I’m smiling just after 7am as that’s when I hear the email come through on my phone from TDF. Seriously addicted and today is no exception. Totally inspired (more than usual if that’s possible). My love affair with Melbourne recently became a long distance relationship…luckily these emails and the creative people/homes/products featured make it that little bit easier to have moved away. Even if I don’t get to read the email right away, knowing it’s there brightens my day!!!

    Kirra and Dane – I am so insanely jealous of your home and your beautiful artwork! AMAZING! Thanks for letting us in and Lucy, thanks for sharing!

  • Tracey 3 years ago

  • Hollie 3 years ago

    Ok so now I’ve posted something before the deadline, I can finish the rest of my comment here… I have been hanging out to see if Kirra would release some prints of her most gobsmackingly amazing artworks and now my dreams have come true! I would love a painting but they are just too far beyond the reaches of my wallet. :( I am a huge fan!

  • catherine 3 years ago

    Really enjoyed seeing the live/work space of these two talented folk; and also seeing Kirra’s work in the flesh, for the first time in winter last year. Thankyou for an inspiring post.

  • anna 3 years ago

    I adore Kirra’s work and use of color so refreshing and am so in love with her studio.

  • Valerio 9 months ago

    These are some awesome pieces of artwork! Colourful, eclectic, unusual – everything you could possibly want and more!

    I also love the all-in-one studio/home – this is something I would love to do myself one day, but I’m always worried that my ‘home’ style is going to spill over into my ‘work’ style and it’s all going to turn into one big mess! You have given me hope that it is possible.
