gorgeous Melbourne home - Kirsty Macafee's wonderful family abode
Sometimes when Mike Baker and I turn up to a home to shoot a page for the Sunday Age/Sun Herald M magazine, he could literally point his camera in any direction, and it would capture loveliness. Kirsty Macafee's home is one of those - it is light, airy, homely, and if finding cool stuff was an Olympic sport, Australia would have a serious champion in Kirsty.
I love the line in her interview when Kirsty says "It's all about nostalgia for me... I like things that remind me of my childhood, my grandparents, my family, our hobbies". Well, a home put together with that kind of sentiment and love will always win hands down to one put together with a massive cheque book as far as I am concerned!
Likewise, Kirsty's blog, www.kootoyoo.com is thoughtful, inspiring and very beautiful. Can you tell I am a fan?
