Creative just doesn’t cut it when you’re talking about interior decorator Anna Spiro. She’s more than simply creative – she’s one of those wonderfully artistic people who can gather the most eclectic mix of objects, throw them all together, and make it look perfectly effortless...
If you’ve ever visited boutique hotel Halycon House on the far north coast of NSW you’ll know what we’re talking about (at the very least, you’re bound to have seen it all over Instagram – it’s possibly the most snapped hotel of 2016). Or you might have her book Absolutely Beautiful Things on your coffee table or follow her on Instagram (@annaspiro). Either way, you’ll have fallen in love with the joyful work of Spiro. For her, “it’s all about the mix, not the match”. “I always endeavour to create happy, interesting, layered and uplifting spaces. That means mixing everything: colour and pattern, old and new, square and round, quirky and conservative. It’s the imperfections and surprises that make a space interesting,” she says. The good news for us is, she’s just launched Anna Spiro Textiles in collaboration with her brother Sam Spiro, who specialises in business operations. Inspired by trips to Hawaii with her husband and two sons, the range is made exclusively by hand in Australia. First illustrated and then screen-printed onto fine Belgian Linen, the heavenly range currently comprises of six designs in a variety of chic colourway options. Want to see more? We were there to capture all the action at the Sydney launch.
