Heather collects floral prints, both vintage and the more modern versions, such as Cloth’s rose floral prints, designed in Sydney by Julie Paterson. The family live in an old weather-boarder in Armadale, Melbourne, Australia. Working as a stylist Heather sees trends quickly come and go, so she is wary of buying into too many fads. “I love to come up with creative alternatives when a certain look really inspires me.” Her bedroom wall is the perfect example – for months she had been coveting a Cath Kidston digital print wallpaper featuring roses, but knowing that just one wall would cost about $1500, I she decided to road test the idea by sticking pages from a pictorial rose book onto the wall. Total cost? About $20 for the books and $30 postage from Amazon “I love it so much I may just keep it the way it is,” she says.
