Join us as we take a glimpse inside a home that’s as vibrant as its owner.
Spirited and vivacious, like all true women of style, Nadia Fairfax-Wayne’s good taste extends to her home. Shared with her husband Michael, their Sydney residence stays true to Nadia’s passion for colour, reflecting the couple’s love of fun and penchant for entertaining. From fabulous details to eclectic styling, discover the design mantras behind the spectacular space.
The beauty is in the details
An extension of her personal style, Nadia looks to bold design details to bring her home to life. Think vibrant accents with an emphasis on colour and shape. Whether it’s a modern vase or an elegant serving platter, pieces that reflect your own personality create a finish that feels unpretentious, joyous and most of all personable.
“I think you should decorate your home much like your personal style. For me, it’s bold, eclectic and certainly colourful. You can see that throughout my choices in art, vases and the colour of the walls”

In the kitchen
Having fun in the kitchen begins with the tools you have on hand. Injecting pastels and playing on textures makes for a fun way to bring joy into your everyday. Stylish and sophisticated, look to names like SMEG, Alessi and Le Creuset to take care of the functional side of things, while Dinosaur Designs signature offering bowls add a touch of intention.

The definition of dinner party
The queen of dinner parties, Nadia’s home is primed for entertaining. Always one to have cheese and olives on hand, she looks to ultra-chic champagne saucers and a cheese board with a difference to elevate a setting at a moment’s notice. Right now, LSA International and IITTALA are the brands she has on rotation.

The art of unwinding
Perhaps one of the most cherished rooms in the house, the living room makes for the ultimate sanctuary. Intentionally designed without technology in mind, the space nods to the art of unwinding, leaving plenty of room for Michael’s love of reading.
“This is where Michael and I sit after dinner, we like to relax – we often put the fire on and are always reading.“
