Saturday Swoon - Brisbane, Australia

Today's Swoon takes us all the way to Australia. This is the home of stylist and talented photographer Kara Rosenlund . Kara's style is making waves in the interior world and was recently featured on REMODELISTA { a very cool online interiors source book for the home}

Stylist & photographer Kara Rosenlund

 The key to her adored style is her unique ability and sharp eye in the pairing together of interesting pieces and accessories. Her use and reuse of natural materials, set in the family of a neutral backdrop and combined with collectors pieces from vintage markets sets her style apart from the rest.

Once again the use of white panelling and neutral flooring opens up the space in a room and allows simple articles that would otherwise be swallowed up by backdrop to shine! Authentic vintage items add character, warmth and give the space a sense of history without being too traditional.

Having the patience and passion to explore boot sales and collectors markets, allows opportunity to source truly authentic and original accessories that stand out from the crowd.

 Kara has now began a very successful little side business called the "Travelling Wares" caravan pop-up shop. Full to the brim with both practical and beautiful old wares for the kitchen and home, and  sourced by Kara from far and wide to sell, its the perfect outlet for an every changing range.

Kara's love for vintage is obvious with her various collections such as kitchen cutlery and crockery to old wooden shutters and upcycled glass wares.
