Anzac Day

Today is Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance in New Zealand and Australia for all of those who lost their lives while serving our countries in war and peacekeeping operations.

They shall grow not old.
As we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning
We will remember them.

I don't mean to trivialise the day in any way, not at all. But I would like to celebrate the enormous talent we have in New Zealand and Australia by showing you the homes of two incredibly talented designers. Both have very different styles, both fabulous in their own special way. The first is the home of Karen Walker, our very own internationally renowned fashion designer. You can see more photos at The Selby.

And this is the home of inspirational Australian artist and designer, Rachel Castle. Her art brings joy, and no home is complete without a Castle pillowcase or two (in my humble opinion). See more of her home at The Design Files.
