Style crush with Dina Broadhurst

Our most anticipated Style Crush interview comes from our long time
girl-crush, Dina Broadhurst. The Australian artist herself shares with us her styling secrets.

Whether it be sharing her artworks in progress, a snap of her Saturday night ensemble or indulging us in the restoration of her new home – one thing is clear, Dina Broadhurst know just how to pull all the right things together, in a way that is uniquely hers.

We caught up with a talented artist and asked all things home, art and rugs of course.

Q: How would you describe your home style? And how has your art style influenced your home style?

A: Thank you so much! I was actually in awe by so many elements when I first walked into this dream home. The positioning high in the hill, walking into such an amazing panoramic view of the harbour, the terraced gardens, the sandstone walls, the rustic four pillar entrance with the highest ceilings and a pillar box red door, portions and layout of the rooms of flowing outwards towards that view.

 

Q: Looking at your Instagram it looks like you’re very inspired! What kind of art are you working on at the moment?

A: At the moment I’m working on some large-scale pieces with 3-D elements that I am so inspired and excited about. I am collecting used luxury items and looking to collect anything from use perfume bottles, luxury shopping bags, ribbon, boxes, tape, packaging, accessories, shoes, vintage household items that hold meaning and incorporate these items into my new works.

“So it’s about recycling, reusing, is it a rating the feel good emotions that a luxury purchase gives you a new light, commenting on the future in a way to reuse, sleep, collect, purpose, reimagine and regenerate what we can find rather than always buying the shiny new.“

 

Q: Why did you choose the Misha rug for your living room and how did a rug change the space?

A: The rug is everything to the space. It provides warmth, softness, acoustic absorbing, and a place to hang out in. The lines create movement and direction in the space, contrasting with other lines in the room.

“I feel inspired and creative in a place i can not only live in, but can also feel productive in.“

 

Q: We have so many followers who are passionate about interior design. They love prints and art, but struggle in choosing the right pieces for their space. What advice would you give to someone who is just starting out in choosing an art piece for their home?

A: Choose art you love and build around it. Break the rules. Go for different sizes rather than matchy matchy. Use different frames to create interest. Bottomlime, don’t be afraid to stand out and be different.

 

Q: What is your idea of a perfect night in a home?

A: A home-cooked meal, a bath, dessert in bed, a good book or a fantastic movie. All with my man, my son, my dog and preferably asleep before 10 pm.
