Kerrie Brown Lighting

April 19, 2013

I’m not finished yet talking about lights and these from Kerrie Brown Design Studio in Sydney are sooooo nice. My columnist, Jillian Leiboff, told me about Kerrie’s work this morning and I loved her lighting immediately. Here are a few photos for a little show and tell.

I had a good look around her website and really fell in love – very quirky and colorful… I can really see these shades being sold at Liberty in London, can’t you? In addition to lampshades, you can find pillows, wallpaper, blind, fabric, headboards, cabinets and more. I was fascinated to learn that Kerrie is actually an Academy Award nominated set decorator and interior designer – what a fantastic background! She’s worked on the sets of The Quiet American, Mission Impossible, The Chronicles of Narnia and Don’t be Afraid of the Dark.

Wouldn’t it be an amazing job to be a set designer for major motion pictures?

    This lighting reminds me a lot of Anthropologie..probably because ive never been to Liberty London!
    It’s cute though and pretty unique.

    What beautiful lighting! I am also a lighting designer (amongst other things) here in Canada. Though, my lamps and shades are mostly mid-century inspired, I do also use bright colors and bold patters almost exclusively!
    You should check them out!
    Thanks for the great post. I love seeing work from designers similar to myself : )

    Truthfully, I think they come on a bit too strong the way they’re presented here, but I do think they could work in a more minimalistic context.

    Those shades look amazing! I bet the wallpaper is great too, I’d like to get some and wrap it around a cabinet and put it in my studio!

    That would be a great job to be a set designer! I love your blog and just did a little Q&A with children’s designer and illustrator over on my blog today and I’d love for you to check it out and let me know what you think!
