With all products designed and manufactured exclusively in Australia, Kerrie Brown Designs seems to have become the country’s latest design export, having showcased at internationally renowned design tradeshow Maison & Objet Americas 2016 in Miami.

Kerrie Brown's design studio was evolved off the back of her glittering career as a set decorator on internationally acclaimed  feature films. Her past film projects include: Don’t be Afraid of the Dark, Mao’s Last Dancer, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Quiet American, Mission Impossible II, The Raven and Babe (for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Art Direction).

Kerrie set up her studio in Sydney’s Woollahra where she designs textiles, wallpaper and lampshades that are as spectacular as her movie sets. The range is original, highly sophisticated and demands attention, be it in a commercial or domestic setting.

“Being a set decorator is a bit like being an interior designer, but your client is a character in a film,” Ms Brown explains. “It is all about creating a world for the characters to live in, but now I’m loving working with real people and designing for their lifestyle.”

Kerrie Brown’s range for 2016 includes Botanical Graffiti, I think I’m turning Japanese, Still Life With Portraits and Rock Star. This latest aesthetic draws inspiration from a vast sweep of European art, mixing a luminous colour palette and Kerrie’s particular passion for the 18th and 19th centuries. Refreshingly erratic in nature, the designs range from a vibrant and explosive mix of period imagery and contemporary graffiti smudges to dreamy pools of liquid colour that saturate each print.

“A lot of my designs are based around 18th century pictures and patterns – delving into that world is a constant joy. I love taking earlier images and dropping them into a contemporary context,” adds Kerrie.
