Designer Crush: Anna Spiro

I've been crushing on Brisbane-based designer Anna Spiro since admiring her house tour featured in 2009 on Apartment Therapy.  The girl has mad style.  I love that she chose an Allyson Reynolds moth painting for her home, just like designer Sara Gilbrane did in yesterday's post:

And I'm sure many of you domino addicts remember her eclectic bathroom vanity featured in their coffee table book (it's one of my favorites!):

Anna's design firm is Black & Spiro, and in addition to homes, they do hospitality projects as well- like the boutique hotel Halcyon House in Cabarita Beach:

The hotel features a healthy dose of beachy blue and whites, and reminds me of my good friend Gaby's style- modern, eclectic, and effortless in the best way possible. 

The Brisbane Mr. & Mrs. G Riverbar was another one of Anna's hospitality projects.   She worked closely with owners Andy and Marcia Gorges to create a bright, beautiful bar with a nod to their Mediterranean roots:

If designing brilliant spaces wasn't enough of a calling card, Anna released a line of 3 divine wallpapers in 2012 through Porter's Paints- I remember it nearly broke the design internet. The first is a fun whimsical pattern called "Round and Round the Garden":

The second is Rosey Posey Trellis (my personal favorite):

And the third is Higgledy Piggledy Stripe:

All of Anna's wallpapers can now be purchased through her online store here

Anna also released a coffee table book named after her design blog, Absolutely Beautiful Things, in 2015.  I have yet to buy it myself, but it's on the wish list. 

So inspired by you, Anna!  Keep up the fab work.
