Australian country style

ECS_Justin Bishop_1

I find the elegance in the spaces designed by Australian Justin Bishop to be about what is left out. Most often his rooms are void of fuss and color, letting the architectural elements, natural light, and warmth of antiques enhance the spirit of the home (he is not afraid of a little bit of wear and tear or dust and dirt for that matter). In his book Country Style & Design he says that Australian country style “stems from the country’s beginnings, when its early settlers pioneered its rugged landscape, with bare essentials.” And that, “On the whole, the style is plain and simple.”

Justin Bishop Interior Design has recently opened a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast in Sassafras, Victoria called The Blackwood Sassafras, which embodies Bishop’s signature look.
