Welcome to Lifely’s At Home With series, where we explore the homes of inspiring creatives, interior designers and everyday Australians to see how they’ve brought their homes to life.
Creativity comes naturally to artist Erin Bacchi. So it comes as no surprise that her talent blossomed in interior styling when she moved into her Sunshine Coast home in April 2021.
As a hybrid mum with a successful online print store, space and storage is always front of mind when decorating her home. It’s a big reason why she loves our Kona Cabinet in her home studio. “It’s amazing for storage and looks so nice as well,” Erin tells us. Striking the balance between functional and stylish, it’s perfect the art of being a multi-hyphenate just like she has.
While our Kona Cabinet won her heart by a smidge, the runner-up wasn’t far behind. With a two and a half-year-old, Erin finds the extra storage from the Kona Sideboard a lifesaver in her son’s room. “My goal with this room was to create a calm and neutral space for him to relax and unwind,” she says, “but I also think it’s important to have so many colourful toys, puzzles and books.” That’s where the Kona steps up, making ‘out of sight, out of mind’ more than just a saying. Also contributing to her idea of creating a calm and neutral space is the Cali Bed Base in the king single size. “I love the coastal minimal feel that it gives,” explains Erin. We couldn’t agree more and love how she’s paired it with our Kona Bedside Table.
After a long day either managing her store or working as a graphic designer at Hello Studio, there’s no better place to unwind than relaxing on the “plush and comfortable” Buffy Sofa Bed, if she doesn’t have to fight pup, Nelson, for it!
