You might have noticed if you visited The Design Files Open House in December (thankyou thankyou thankyou!) that my dream home is filled with COLOUR. And yet, there is a little part of me, (perhaps the most 'grown-up' part) that wishes I could restrain myself to a elegant beige-on-beige colour scheme. It would be so very posh to have a home filled with white and neutral tones - linens, ceramics, antique lighting and rustic timber furniture - don't you think!? How do people have this kind of discipline!? Perhaps that's why posh people have holiday houses.
ANYWAY. If you are GROWN UP enough to have a restrained beige-on-beige interior colour scheme, then DUNLIN is your new best friend. I, for one, am smitten.
Dunlin is a new online store based in Sydney. They have the most excellent and extensive range of homewares, lighting, furniture, linen and accessories sourced from across the globe, in particular New York. That's because Dunlin is the pet project of Australian architect Alexandra Bond, who has spent the last six years with her partner Nicholas Barber working in New York, and living between New York and Sydney.
Dunlin forms a retail extension to Alexandra's architectural interiors practice, which has allowed her to bring in a great variety of her favourite US brands previously unavailable in Australia, including stunning Matteo linens, Original BTC and Davey Lighting and West Third candles. It's a seriously stunning edit of classic pieces you just won't find anywhere else in Australia!
I want EVERYTHING. For my imaginary holiday house.
