To celebrate the launch of her book new This is Home: The Art of Simple Living, Natalie Walton has bought the philosophy of the book to life. Taking residency in a warehouse space at Precinct 75 in St Peters, Sydney, the shell of the industrial building provided the ideal foundation for her beautifully curated pieces. "For me, art always plays an important role in adding depth to a space - the result is “This is Home” the art exhibition," shares Natalie. For the pop-up, Natalie contacted some of her favourite artists across Australia to create and contribute works of art based on their idea of home. The store will be open only until the 24th of March, so make sure to visit while you can.

“Make your home a place that gives you pleasure every day - pare it back to beautiful pieces that bring enjoyment with each use. Live simply, live better.”
