The queens of colour are right here with the sisters from mondocherry, adding some panache to the fresh season that is bestowing its sunny skies upon us. See what a dose of citrus zest will do for your living space!
by Clare and Joy, mondocherry
If you are feeling like a fresh new look for your home as the warmer weather approaches, start with a spring clean, pare back to your basic furniture pieces, and then add some zingy citrus shades.
It doesn’t have to be a big commitment as citrus colours pack a punch. Add a big bowl of fresh lemons to the kitchen bench, paint a stool a zesty lime, and brighten up the sofa with pretty cushions in shades of mandarin, lemon and pink grapefruit.
Clare and Joy write for mondocherry and are also creative designers of unique 3D artworks and complimentary fabrics- they are currently dreaming up the Christmas window display for their concept store in Malvern. These sisters grew up watching old Hollywood musicals and can sing just about every song from every movie. A life without their GHD hair straighteners would be no good. Of all the places in the world Joy would choose Melbourne to live while Clare would flee to a remote beach in Mauritius. With 24hours all to themselves Joy would take a walk, have a long hot bath and read a good book while Clare would just sleep!
