Naomi owns a boutique construction firm, Design Manifest, with her Dad. During the day she designs other people's homes. So to be able to design her own home completely for herself, no boyfriend or flatmate to consider, meant she could push the boundaries and get really adventurous. And although her 'modern bohemian glamour' style looks expensive, Naomi actually pulled it all together on a modest budget - you go girl!
|Naomi's love of David Hicks' La Fiorentina fabric meant that this entry bench was one of her few splurges. The art belonged to her nana, and she sewed the cushions herself using scraps of ikat fabric.|
|Naomi won this vintage bar cart at an auction for $150! She commissioned the painting by Nicole of |
Sketch 42 as a moving in present to herself, so she could always remember her new beginning.
|The living area has a Pottery Barn rug picked up for half price on eBay. Naomi would love to replace it one day with a real Beni Ouarain Moroccan rug - it's always good to have something to strive for!|
|Naomi likes to change her cushions out seasonally. To make it a cost-effective activity she shops |
discount fabric outlets and sews the covers herself.
|The mini Singer belonged to Naomi's great-grandmother, and the David bust was from a thrift store. |
It's great to have pieces on show that are sentimental and tell a story.
|The cheapest room was the bedroom. Naomi's sister scored the headboard from an Urban Outfitters |
sample sale. The bedspread was a gift from her Mum. The pillows are from Naomi's friend Caitlin Wilson. And she won the Marilyn artwork in a Cozamia giveaway!
