Brisbane Interior Stylists: Q&A with Indigo Jungle
Indigo Jungle are a dynamic and spirited styling duo working on some amazing projects around town. From suburban homes to hotels and bars, the Indigo Jungle girls add a real sense of warmth and personality to architectural spaces through carefully considered styling.
I had a fun day photographing some of their work and watching them weave in and out of what they do best, and what they love – styling and creating beautiful spaces! Vanessa has design and organisational prowess and Caro adds the creative elements, ensuring balance in everything they do.
Vanessa – I have been a graphic designer for 15 years and now that my children are school aged and I have filled and styled two amazing homes, when Caro and I got chatting it seemed a natural progression to join forces.
Caro – I have a design (graphic and interior) and visual art background. Styling kind of just happened, I am a little bit obsessed with beautiful surroundings!!!
V – I handle the day-to-day administration and client relations, and also act as visual support. There is a lot of laughing and we love what we do.
C – Our roles are a bit fluid from job to job, but I focus on the creative side and making sure the brief is met. We do laugh a lot, it’s a great way to keep our sanity! We understand each other and we seem to instinctively know what is needed to get where we need to take the project, a rare ease.
Is there a word or a phrase that would encapsulate Indigo Jungle’s style?
V – individual, heterogeneous,
C – Seeing an idea realised is very satisfying, and sourcing can be a lot of fun too! Each job has brought something, but yes, the Ashgrove Festival was snappy and a lot of fun.
Is there a place or space in Brisbane that you absolutely adore or are inspired by?
V – North Stradbroke Island for its natural beauty, abundant wildlife, earthy colour palette and the escape from city life.
C – The Gallery of Modern Art and The Qld Art Gallery have been a constant source of inspiration. I go there often when I need a creative boost. Walking around, experiencing art in a very considered environment works for me. I am reminded of all the possibilities, talent, energy and courage around us.
Thanks so much to Vanessa and Caro for being the guinea pigs in this new column. I hope you have been inspired in some way. Make sure you follow Indigo Jungle on their beautiful travels via their website, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
