    ORIGIN: KPDO Melbourne

    Currently leading a dynamic team of young designers based in the KPDO office in inner-city Melbourne, interior designer Kerry Phelan has earned a reputation as one of the country’s most celebrated designers. Taking inspiration from the fields of fashion, the performing and visual arts, and as a frequent visitor to international art fairs, Phelan’s projects exude a balance of individuality with sophistication, fusing traditional style with a modern aesthetic.

    “Colour for me usually involves texture, currently I’m thinking (and playing) with yellow plush velvets, ambers and rough black timbers…” KERRY PHELAN

    WEAR:

    My favourite runway show was Louis Vuitton A/W 2015 A completely new direction for Nicholas Ghesquière…no hang on… perhaps Chloe for boho beautifulness… but wait… what about the new Gucci A/W runaway, so mad!

    STAY:

    Our next holiday hideaway I’m planning is Seven Rooms Villadorata in Sicily, it’s on my vast list of wonderful places to visit.

    ADORE:

    My gorgeous doggie Loulou – a great colour palette in herself.

    SEE:

    I’m a total fan of all things neon and fluorescent. Iván Navarro’s extraordinarily seductive mirror neon works at Art Basel HK.

    LISTEN:

    I’m listening to La Femme (Sur la Planche), French electronica pop. Also the Allah Las from California for a summer chillout pick-me-up.

    EAT:

    Bar Di Stasio in St Kilda.

    DESIGN:

    Claude Lalanne – I first noticed her Ginko Series a few years ago in the Dior flagship store in Hong Kong. Her delicate metal sculptures are a combination of furniture and art. Astonishingly (but not surprisingly) she creates jewellery as well.

    SCENT:

    Hotel Costes candles and room scents are my favourite hands down.
