Design Note: Renowned international fashion illustrator Kerrie Hess transformed her Queenslander home into a chic Parisian-inspired abode. “When I found this house, the walls were yellow and the flooring was orange. There were beautiful old Queenslander details in every corner and I couldn’t wait to just paint the whole place bright white, sand back the floors to the original wood and stain them a glossy dark walnut!”

Hess’s beautiful pieces are virtually on every wall, along with chic chandeliers, antique mirrors and piles of beautiful coffee table books. Although most of her work is in fashion illustration, Kerrie has always had a penchant for interiors too. “I use only brushes and watercolour now –  women are still the main focus of my work, but a beautiful interior adds so much to the image.”
