Bright and Sunny Australian Home

You can always trust The Design Files to showcase a variety of beautiful homes from Australia. This colourful, light-filled home in Coolangatta belongs to Leah Bartholomew – an artist and graphic designer.

“Since its a rental, Leah has made only minor cosmetic changes since moving in here, such as installing shelving in her little studio, and painting the brick wall on her back deck in her favourite summery shade of coral.  Inside, she’s filled the home with op shop treasures, sweet handcrafted details and her signature pops of cheerful colour in every room!  Many of the cushions and decorative elements you see here are Leah’s own designs – from cushions, to original artworks, ceramic ‘gem vessel’ planters and her super cute ‘woody’ printed timber objects.”

Leah runs a homeware and stationary range called Beneath the Sun, which is well worth a visit.

    So lovely! I love all the color and plants, of course!

  2. Leah has given her home that creative artist’s touch with well placed, brightly coloured decor pieces and lovely potted plants throughout. You really wouldn’t know it was a rental home.
