Our exclusive 68-page Style Guide shares insight into the creative process of six of these women - also offering tips on colour, comfort and how to honour your own individual style.
Lynda Gardener has been styling fashion items, boutique shopfronts and private abodes for more than three decades. As a child, she regularly visited flea markets with her mother, so vintage and eclectic finds naturally formed the focus of her unmistakable style. With a savvy eye for ‘good bones’ Lynda has also brought five boutique accommodation retreats to life - including her latest venture 'Room + Board' - each one firmly stamped with her penchant for mixing old and new.
Following on from her successful career as a Sydney-based editor, interior stylist and writer, Natalie Walton and her husband Daniel launched online store Imprint House in 2016. Soon after, Natalie published her first book, titled 'This is Home: The Art of Simple Living,' which sought to identify the common threads shared by truly welcoming, nourishing homes throughout the world. Once complete, she and Daniel took their online philosophy one step further by opening a stunning shopfront in Byron Bay’s iconic Newrybar Merchants. Natalie is now busily preparing her second title, due for release in 2020.
Kara Demmrich first became known to Australian television viewers when she participated in Season Eight of The Block with her husband Kyal. Dubbed the ‘Super Ks’ the quick favourites drew appreciation for their harmonious, can-do approach. The affection continued after the show’s finale, as Kyal and Kara continue to make regular TV and media appearances and grow their own successful construction business, which now boasts more than 35 projects.
Taliah Lowry has drawn on a lifetime of travel to create stunning accommodation spaces for others to enjoy. The daughter of hippie parents, she was born in Bali and lived in India, Seattle and Maui, before settling permanently in Byron Bay more than 20 years ago. The experience developed her fully-fledged gypsy heart, but also taught her the importance of creating a home - an insight she has poured into a series of renovations and new building projects known collectively as Byron Beach Abodes. The Lodge and The Cabin are recent additions - spurned by a recent year-long sojourn in New Zealand.
For many Australians, some of our fondest childhood memories are rooted in beachside summer holidays that seemed to stretch on forever. It was with these sentiments that husband and wife duo Lauren and Michael Charge searched for a property to secure as a working venture that could also make memories for their own family. They found their answer a rundown 70s house located in the Hunter Region of New South Wales. With a view out to the pretty Tomaree Headland, Salt at Shoal Bay now boasts three stunning contemporary coastal getaways that set the scene for lasting memories.
Nestled two hours drive south of Sydney, Soul of Gerringong is relaxed coastal accommodation that invites all guests to truly slow down. For owners Simone and Ben Mathews, the original house was love at first sight. The couple were drawn to the 1880s farmhouse whilst visiting friends. With a few decisive strokes the seasoned renovators became its proud new owners and set about restoring elements and creating three seperate guest retreats that honours the property's heritage and invite guests to truly unwind.
