The Melbourne home of designer Lucy Glad-Wright.  All shots kindly supplied by Clare Plueckhahn.

‘Carpe Diem’ print in the hallway is by London print makers Keep Calm Gallery, available from Lucy’s online store Hunting For George.  All shots by Clare Plueckhahn.

Today’s sweet Melbourne home belongs to Tassie born, Gold Coast bred, Melbourne-based creative Lucy Glade-Wright.   Lucy’s apartment is in a fabulous art deco building in Armadale – ‘Traditionally known for its yummy mummies, wedding dresses, labradoodles and any other dog ending in ‘oodle’ ‘ says Lucy!

Lucy lives here with partner Jonno, and the pair have been here for 3 years.  They haven’t had to make many significant changes since moving in – the apartment has what any real estate agent would call ‘great bones’!  Of course Lucy instantly fell in love with all the original art deco features of the home (complete with curved walls and windows!), so in her own words ‘all I’ve done is just basically fill it with junk’.  (Lucy’s responses to my questions about her home are so hilarious I am actually having a hard time editing them!)

When asked for her favourite pieces in the home, Lucy turns up another LOL-inducing pearler. ‘It’s a three-way tie between my Phillips transistor radio that used to belong to my parents but now lives in the kitchen; ‘Janome the Gnome’ who I saved from the garbage bin and now lives next to the fireplace (the beginning of my gnome obsession); and another electronic masterpiece from Phillips… my pimping record/cassette player that I bought from a crazy old lady in Coburg for $23 on ebay.’  Janome the Gnome!  Love it.

Lucy is a graphic designer turned product designer (she currently works for cycling accessories brand KNOG.)  Last year Lucy also launched a new project with big sister Jo – starting their own online boutique Hunting for George.  ‘Ultimately we wanted to be able to have fun with our website and hopefully make people smile’ says Lucy.  This is probably most evident in the DUDES section which aims to create a ‘dude friendly’ shopping experience and give all the clueless men out there a bit of help when it comes to buying presents for women!  Cute.

Massive thanks to Lucy for sharing her home, and to her friend Clare Plueckhahn for the beautiful shots!   Do share the love by paying Hunting for George a little visit!

Mantle details
‘My $23 ebay bargain of a beat box and my ever first trophy i got for actually winning something. Tennis Champion ’93. Respect.’ says Lucy.

Bedroom details – Crosley record player, more records.

Kooky details  in the studio – ‘a politically incorrect babushka doll set I picked up in Budapest and other random things’ says Lucy.

Beautiful deco building exterior

Lucy says the major selling point for her when purchasing this apartment was the rooftop that has an amazing view of the city.
