How To Style Your Life
Feat. interior designer and art director Elly McGaw.
So you know about outfit styling, but have you heard of life styling?
Yeah, it’s a thing. And interior designer/art director Elly McGaw does it oh so well.
Let’s just say she knows how to pull together a damn nice room (and Instagram profile for that matter). In fact, it was her creative eye for fashion, art, interiors, travels and just general #lifegoals that caught our attention in the first place (did we mention she drives a vintage Mercedes and turns up to shoots with props in cute straw baskets and Louis Vuitton bags??).
So when we were considering who to feature in this collaboration with sass & bide to celebrate ‘Style Week’ and contemporary design that inspires, Ms McGaw was top of mind. Plus, we pretty much just wanted an excuse to hang out and pick her brain about how she’s managed to curate such a beautiful existence for herself.
Elly is undoubtedly a very visual person and played an integral part in styling herself and the room for this shoot. Muse (in Darlinghurst, Sydney) provided the backdrop, Kendrick Lamar was the soundtrack and sass & bide’s Speakeasy collection gave us an endless array of pretty pieces to play with.
Read her wise advice on styling your life below.
Turns out, we’ve got a bit of work to do, but we can’t wait to get stuck into some of these tips (maybe after the Sydney fashion week/MBFWA madness next week!) and hone our own life aesthetics.
