Today and until the end of the weekend, Decor + Design, an industrial design event is on in Melbourne, showcasing the latest interior products and furnishings. What I really like about this event is the International Seminar Series that is held, featuring some of Australia's renowned designers and stylists, including a few international guests discussing the latest topics in interior design. This year, I'm attending a design talk held by Allegra Hicks, textile extroadinaire and talented interior designer from Europe.
I am completely smitten by Allegra's ability to use colour courageously and to layer it with pattern upon pattern in bold, striking ways. Her textile collections and interior designs are a visual feast! Allegra's trademark style is recognised as "bohemian luxe" embracing style and elegance through the importance of colour and texture.
Allegra was born in Italy, studied in Europe, moved to New York City to start her career, lived in London and now taken up residence in Naples, Italy. Imagine what she has learnt through this extensive life of travel and culture?
