The Jan Juc home of Arabella and Chris Wilson, which we first shared back in September, was one of our most popular Australian Homes ever! Built sustainably with mud-rendered straw bale walls and recycled materials, and finished with a soft, chalky colour palette and sweet handcrafted details (such as those fabulous clusters of PET pendant lamps!) this home perfectly balances earthy, robust bones with pretty, decorative details.
We love Arabella’s distinctive design aesthetic – she has a passion for vintage textiles, in particular patchwork quilts, many of which feature throughout the home. Arabella’s Dad, Dougal Ramsay, is also an incredible illustrator whose quirky drawings also feature throughout the home, and have inspired many of the textiles in Arabella’s kidswear label, Dougal.
Having previously been based in Melbourne, the tranquility here is something Arabella and Chris never take for granted. ‘Hearing the surf when you go to sleep, and waking up to the birds in the morning…. these simple things are what I love…’ Arabella says.
