BOOK OF THE MONTH: Spaces, Volume Two.

Welcome! We had so much fun last month with our first book review. What did you think? Please let us know.

For this month, we are going to review & discuss something a little different and closer to home - Spaces Volume Two by Frankie Press. It's sort of a book but really a HUGE magazine showcasing Australian homes where "creative people live, work and play". 

Spaces 1

This book gives us a welcome insight into the living and work spaces of creatives all around Australia, some who live in major cities and other who enjoy the more rural lifestyle. We get to learn about what makes them tick, how their homes motivate & inspire them and how their current lifestyle influences the spaces they live.

Frankie Press describe the homes featured in their second edition as "the kind of places that take time and energy to put together, with some of the most precious things in them passed down through families, collected on travels or picked up from the side of the road". And this is why I think its such a good read.

I love that the spaces have not been styled for a magazine shoot. They are honest and raw and show what's important to the people who live in them. As you will see, it is not always what's new or trendy in design, but what is treasured and loved by their owners.

Frankie Press have put together this beautiful video about a co-working space in Brunswick, Victoria called Little Gold Studios who feature in this edition.

After watching this video and reading the article, I want to visit Little Gold Studios! Do you feel the same?  So I'm excited to get started real soon! You can buy this beautiful book at all good newsagents or online here.
