When you think about Australia Day, what comes to mind?
A sizzling BBQ with eskies full of icy cold drinks? A friendly game of backyard cricket with mates? Triple J's Hottest 100 playing in the background? Boats bobbing on the harbour (for us Sydneysiders)? And the only work being done is working on our tans! We don’t often take time to reflect on what it truly means to be Australian.
Australians often believe that the heart of innovation and imagination is born off-shore, in a land far, far away, such as Europe or America. As interior designers, we are proud and privileged to work with so many amazing Australian designers, artists and creatives every day, but during this patriotic period it's perfect timing to recognise and shine a spotlight on these local creative talents.
So in celebration of all things Australian on 26 January, we are championing our local designers and celebrating home-grown talent in the world of design and bring together our very own Advance Australia Design Fair.
