A lockdown collaboration across two sides of the world, working with friends and fellow creatives, Australian stylist and boutique hotelier, Lynda Gardener, and Australian photographer, Marnie Hawson. 

Curate reflects the shared love that Ali & Lynda have for monochrome interiors, the joy of natural imperfections & an obsession with curating their homes with unique, treasured finds. It is about inspiring readers to trust their own style, dream big & create a home that is personal to you - the one place that tells your own story & where you can be your most authentic. Ali explores eight Elements within the first chapter, that bring a home to life: palette, nature, textiles, lighting, a combination of old & new, storage, collections & art. In Chapter two, ten real, uncontrived homes show the style in practice, including a converted warehouse, one-bedroom studio, bijoux apartment, historic cottage, country estate, new-build barn, remote shack, period townhouse & rural retreat.

Ali has peppered the book with lots of informative, break out ideas, that will hopefully encourage you the reader to ignore trends & curate a timeless home, with pieces they love. It’s intended as a go to resource that you will feel inspired to keep coming back to.

Concept, text, creative direction, image layout, Ali Heath.

Styling and creative direction, Lynda Gardener.
