Styling Magazine Letter from Coty Farquhar - In this Issue


Styling magazine is one year old, can you believe it? I can’t! Twelve issues in twelve months with over 1’800 pages of photographs and stories. It has been the most wonderful year meeting and working with so many talented and creative people who continue to inspire me every day. Inspiration is what we here at Styling magazine live on. It is the pure life force that is in everyone and it is what keeps us going month after month, issue after issue. Inspiration brings such joy to so many. In this issue we celebrate the magical, the dreamtime and our imagination. Mary Poppins, Santa Claus, Rudolf and the Angels are all imaginary characters, but somehow, they seem very real in our imagination. They are as real as our sacred heart and our intuition and they are a real part of our mind and our imagination. In this issue we have a piece on P.L Travers, the creative author behind the story of Mary Poppins, the magical nanny who flies on the wind with her talking bird umbrella.We show mystical creatures that are carved into furniture. We take a piece of copper wire and show what the imagination can create with at simple twist. We change the colours on a fashion shoot and look at what takes place when we blend symbols and stars and let the imagination takes over. When I was little, my mother would look out of her window in search of the man with the long white beard flying high in his sleigh. She would call to me to come and see him, but I was never quick enough. It was very real to me. I like to believe our imagination is as real as anything. I want to empower those that inspire, Styling magazine searches high and low for creative people with creative ideas and inspirational lives to share with you here in this book. May your season be filled with peaceful days and inspiration that floods your heart and takes your head to the stars. Xx Coty Farquhar


A Magical Season Change the colour s, change the look. Change your mind and change your thinking. Look to the star s, be inspired by your dreams. Gaze into a mandala and watch your imagination take o v e r. O p e n yo u r c h a k r a s a n d l e t t h e m h e a l , t h e colours of each are magnificent and along with the planets, the sun and the moon they are the most precious jewels we own.


The chakra tree is made up of many wonderful colour s. Imagine you’ re standing in this tree and you b e g i n t o f e e l e v e r y t h i n g l i g h t i n g u p . Yo u r h e a r t i s the colour green, the base is our connection to Mother earth and is the colour red, the colour of the Australian earth. The land where the dreamtime stories walk. Stories of creation, sacred places, land, animals and tr aditional customs. A network of spiritual knowledge passed on through the heart and seen through the third eye, the link to our imagination.


Reflections from the artist

“ Pe r f u m e i s a my t h a n d a f a i r y t a l e. Fo r a r t i s t a n d p o e t s, b l e s s e d w i t h a rich imagination, frag rances are a never-ending source of inspiration. What scent orginates from the moon’s reflection in a puddle? What about a dewdrop, a tiny tear-drop of light, caught rapidly before it vanishes? Consider olfactory masterpieces with the power to move you... If a picture is wor th a thousand words, the ar tistperfumer can use this power to create scent paintings in which fully developed ideas and shapes emerge.Jasmine becomes a wave of feeling... Turkish rose transforms into gold dust and passion berries evoke star r y heavens...Scent tur ns into image”

Look at these delicate aromas and ‘listen’ as their music envelops you...”

Guerlain


The mandala tree is made up of thousands of c o l o u r s a n d p a t t e r n s t h a t e x i s t i n h a r m o n y. Spin an umbrella fast and watch as the illusion takes hold of your mind. Ever ything blends together as one, colours mix and patter ns form unusual shapes. Jump into the mandala and see where the journey takes you.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality. Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose.


Time for Reflection Reflection on reflection on reflection turns everything inside out. The shades of the sky, the twinkle of the sea and the movement of the clouds all reflect our beautiful world. Let your imagination go, let it fall into the mirror ball. Watch where it takes you as it spins and reflects the colours... a perfect balance of light and illusion.


Styling magazine gathered hundreds of mirror balls of all different sizes to decorate an historic monastery set in a natural moss covered rainforest in the Southern Highlands. Our decor design was to reflect upon life and to the beauty around us. Our inspiration came from the uni ver se and the extraordinary shapes of crop circles. We mixed and roped different sized balls together. The reflection from the sun as it moved across the sky sent shafts of light from one ball to another. At night as the large balls spun on the old branches of the trees the full moon light turned the garden into fantasy land of twinkling fairy lights reflecting the stars above.


Styling Magazine Celebr ates Move the computers out of the studio, clear the tables, pack away the files, get the cake and set the boardroom table. It’s time to celebrate our 1st birthday and a little bit of Christmas cheer!


This is normally where we sit and put the magazine together in our studio, there is usually lots of props, papers and books everywhere. Today we have styled the room for a special (imaginary) lunch to celebrate our first year. There is a place for ever yone at our table, we welcome the amazing contributors to the magazine, Sharon, Vicki, Christiane, Lisa, Colleen, Bec, Belinda, Thomas, Suzie, Ayisha, Lindsay, Melissa, Margaret, Jeanne, Deb, Francisco and my husband Andrew. To all the inspiring artists and stylists, the creators of the beautiful homes and gardens that welcomed us with open arms. To all the models, Lisa, Brianna and Caitlan and all the children. To the store owners and collectors who shared their wares with us. To Ercan Esmek from Fleur de Lys for this amazing celebration cake. But most importantly to you the reader, our friend, who without you I wouldn’t be here now. Thank you for your encouragement and beautiful comments about our work throughout the year. I don’t know how I could have done this without you, the little stars that shine on the globe on my website show us where you are around the world and we have you here with us in spirit and it is to you that we raise our glass.

Q ueen B ee The House of Guerlain celebr ates the 160th Anniversar y of the iconic ‘Bee’ bottle.


160 years ago, Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain created Eau de Cologne Impériale for Her Majesty Empress Eugénie, in a bottle decorated with a myriad of bees, hand-gilded with fine gold. On May the 11th 1853, Guerlain was appointed "Official Purveyor to the Empress" in recognition for Eau de Cologne Impériale, originally made in 1830. Guerlain then commissioned a bottle from the Pochet & du Courval glassworks engraved with the Empress' coat of arms and which had each bee and each scalloped edge hand painted with gold. All perfumes and products ordered by the Empress were delivered bearing her emblem. Styling magazine has long admired the fragrance, the design, the craftsmanship and the beautiful styling and presentation of this iconic house. Together with another admirer, a Danish writer and blogger, (who calls his website Monsieur Guerlain) we share the 160th celebration of this remarkable little Royal Bee. We take you back over the years to where this honey bee has flown and where it has definitely left its makers mark. We also look at the newly designed Maison Guerlain in Paris that showcases the work of today’s artists that are continuing the creative flight of this little bee.


L’ A B E I L L E A U X A I L E S A R G E N T B Y B A C C A R AT An enchanted Rêve de Lune

For the third year in a row, the Bee, the Guerlain emblem, takes the form of a precious handmade bottle that perfectly embodies everything most sublime, infinitely beautiful and rare about artistic cr aftsmanship. After effects of transparency and then golden reflections, the bee’s famous wings now glow with silver glimmers that enhance its body of Baccarat crystal. This sumptuous, limitededition Rêve de Lune creation boasts extreme luxury: the quest for beauty meets the quest for excellence. All of the artistic trades shared their superb experience, intrinsic know-how and perfect mastery of the craft, pushing back the limits of possibility once more. For the Bee with Silver Wings bottle, Baccarat achieved a new expertise used in the aeronautic sector to obtain these metallic and polarising effects, thus sealing a bond between tradition and modernity. Only 50 numbered bottles worldwide. To celebrate the opening of the new house, Guerlain is presenting a new perfume called Le Parfum du 68. The perfume is a sumptuous extrait reworking of the Cologne du 68 formula, with notes of spices, everlasting flower, tonka bean, benzoin, incense and leather. It will be


featured in a new Baccarat masterpiece, a black crystal version of the one-litre size of the mythic turtle bottle. The turtle bottle was introduced for the first time in 1914 when Guerlain’s Champs-ElysÊes address was inaugurated. The new bottle has been made by restoring a one hundred year old mould. Animal motifs and figurines were very much in vogue during the Art Nouveau design period, and Guerlain issued three animal-inspired bottles: the snail bottle (1902), the tortoise bottle (1914) and the duck bottle (1914). In 2010 the magnificent L'Abeille bottle ("the bee"), handmade in crystal by Baccarat. Le Parfum du 68


Deluxe edition for the 160th anniversary of the bee bottle and Eau de Cologne ImpÊriale, the creation that catapulted the success of Guerlain in 1853. For this edition, Guerlain has asked French artist Lison de Caunes to conceive a magnificent decoration for the monumental one-litre golden bee bottle using straw marquetry, a technique which was widely used in Art Deco. The box, entirely covered with straw marquetry, features Guerlain’s revived Sun King logo. Thirty-two numbered pieces have been produced. Lison de Caunes also created the marquetry panels of the new Maison Guerlain.

Maison Guerlain reopened the store last month on the 23rd of November after nine months of renovation. Described by Guerlain as "the new temple of beauty", it boasts a brand-new interior design by architect Peter Marino whom Guerlain asked to "bring his eye to bear on the antique section of the boutique and imagine the continuation of the story." To carry out the project, Peter Marino implemented the marble walls and Art Deco of the 1939 Guerlain beauty institute as inspiration. All classified objects have been preserved, notably found in the Art Nouveau boutique on the ground floor and the beauty institute on the second floor. The historic boutique now features a ripple-effect mirror ceiling, evoking the feeling of Versailles' Hall of Mirrors, the latter being further strengthened by an immense, white plaster figure of Guerlain's revived Sun King logo looking out from the end wall. The former pop-up


store has been all covered with marble and connected to the 1914 boutique area. Contemporary and very youthful details have been added to this space in order to balance the ceremonial look of marble, displaying sections for make-up and men's fragrances. At the bottom, a monumental staircase leads to a new underground floor that houses Guerlain's restaurant, Le 68, by Michelin-starred Parisian chef Guy Martin. The first floor has been completely redesigned with its hallway covered with shimmering silver and now presenting a small perfume bottle museum. The remaining rooms on this floor have been decorated with marquetry panels and a new "perfume organ" that harks back to the 1930s' Art Deco style. Next to this central space, a smaller room is furnished for private perfume consultations. There is also a new "couture" area, reserved for scented gloves and silk accessories. The second floor still houses the beauty institute, largely left untouched by the renovation, except for more comfortable treatment cabines and a new orchid "winter garden" area.


T h e M e z z a n i n e. U n t i l t h e 2 0 0 5 renovation by architects AndrĂŠe Putman and Maxime d'Angeac, there was no Maison Guerlain, only the small historic boutique on the ground floor. The first floor was integrated via a mezzanine, decorated with a striking "gold ribbon" consisting of 350.000 golden tesserae covering walls and ceiling. The mezzanine of the new Maison Guerlain now features an equally impressive shimmering silver and mirror effect with a built-in gallery that exhibits a small part of Sylvie Guerlain's collection of vintage Guerlain bottles. On the end wall, architect Peter Marino has constructed an art installation called "Infinity Bottle", made from bee bottle stoppers. Guerlain has dubbed this area "La Galerie des Glaces" after Versailles' famous mirror hall.

"All the senses must be stimulated by beauty and the extraordinary," says Guerlain about its renovated house. The new restaurant, Le 68 by Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin, takes you to the sense of taste, naturally linked to fragrance. The menu offers a selection of dishes, cakes and drinks inspired by Guerlain's perfumes. You can have a La Petite Robe Noire patisserie and a Habit Rouge or Shalimar tea, and cakes and teas can be bought to bring home. The dĂŠcor of the restaurant is inspired by the 1939 tapestry still found at Guerlain's beauty institute. The tabletops, designed by Peter Dayton, zoom in on Guerlain's favourite raw materials, rose, jasmine, iris, ylang-ylang, vanilla and tonka bean.

Presentation by Etienne Rayssac for Maison Guerlain

To celebrate the 160th anniversary of the bee bottle, Guerlain organized an exhibition called Nect'Art around the famous imperial bottle. Nine artists have been given free rein to dress and portray a one-litre bee bottle. The nine Ĺ“uvres will be on display at Maison Guerlain from the 10th of December 2013 until the 14th of February 2014, after which they will be for sale with proceeds benefiting an association for young artists.

ART FOUR

Antler furniture, black forest wood carvings and fantasy furniture have been used to decorate log cabins and hunting lodges for many years. At the beginning of the 19th century antler furniture was made almost exclusively for the aristocratic families to decorate their hunting castles and country seats. Today, antique dealers Marcus and Martina Mix & Maximilian Fritz of Artfour are on the hunt to find treasured pieces for their clients around the world. The furniture and decorative pieces can be viewed both on-line through 1st dibs and at their wonderful restored old barn store in countryside Lindenstrasse in Germany.

Finding the right place to house antler furniture and black forest pieces is not always that easy. Artfour found and restored an old barn in the countryside in Germany. Here their collection blends beautifully with the age and patina of the historic old walls and hand shaped timber beams. This is their store, their studio and now the home for all these magnificent pieces that are as old and as precious as the barn.

Mary Poppins is home

Story by Paul McShane


It was on the gentle breeze of the east wind on December 8th, 2013 that Mary Poppins, the magical nanny finally landed back in her original birthplace of a century ago, her home town of Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW

Australia. Styling magazine was there when she

landed and we asked Paul McShane, founder and promoter to share the story of how this wonderful statue by sculptor Tanya Bartlett was born.


In its simplest terms, this story began with a family living in the Australian town of Bowral early last century – a recently widowed mother and her three daughters – who were beset by grief and confronting a crisis. During a violent storm, the mother fled from the cottage in what seems to have been a nervous breakdown, threatening to drown herself in the creek that flowed at the back of their property. It is the story of how the eldest child in that family responded to that crisis, gathering her two younger sisters around her in front of the fireplace and then using her imagination and her own gift for storytelling to distract and comfort them in the face of the impending disaster. That eldest child was then known as Helen Lyndon Goff, later to become the author P.L. Travers. (pictured right) Fortunately her mother eventually returned, sodden from the rain but safe.


Out of these bedtime stories she told to her sisters as a teenager in Bowral, the evidence now strongly suggests that the character of Mary Poppins emerged, quite probably the most famous fictional character ever created with Australian origins. In her definitive 1999 biography of PL Travers, Out of the Sky She Came, the journalist Valerie Lawson describes the vital role Bowral had as a location for the genesis of Mary Poppins during the time the Goff family lived in the town from 1907 until 1917. In fact so strong was that influence, that Valerie Lawson points out that many characters in the later Mary Poppins books were exported as real figures from early 20th century Bowral into her tales without even a change of name. Her sisters always claimed she told them the story of Mary Poppins during the time they lived in Bowral as small children. In one interview Travers admitted that as a teenager she had even published a now lost story in a small magazine about a character called Mary Poppins The Goff sisters – Lyndon, Moya and Biddy – in 1915 beside the flooding creek putting the children to bed. near their Holly Street home. (Berrima District Historical Society Archive)


The Mary Poppins books later published in the 1930s and 40s were immensely popular, in many ways akin to the Harry Potter books of the modern era. The 1964 Disney movie added a worldwide multimedia dimension to the character’s fame. More recently, the Cameron Mackintosh-produced stage musical has once again reminded many millions around the world of the delight this character brings to young and old. Today’s chapter in the ongoing Mary Poppins story began 10 years ago when another 12 yearold Bowral girl, Melissa McShane, imagined the same Mary Poppins character but in a different way – this time as a life-size bronze statue as a commemorative tribute to the author’s association with her town that fills a gap in the national literary history. On another level, it was a ten-year partnership between a teenage daughter and her father to complete the project, an opportunity the young Lyndon Goff never had due to the premature death of her own father.


Mary Poppins Bir thplace website


The theme this statue celebrates is very much about the dreams of our young people, and our society’s role in inspiring their imagination and their belief in the possibility of achievement and transformation. How inspiring is a story of a griefstricken teenager with limited prospects coming from an Australian country town in the early 1900s and then later as a young woman of just 24 years of age taking a voyage alone halfway across the world to live out her dream of becoming a successfully published writer? The movie Saving Mr Banks is currently being released worldwide. It tells the story of the campaign waged by Walt Disney (played by Tom Hanks) to woo the author P.L. Travers (played by Emma Thompson) into giving him the rights to produce a cinematic version of Mary Poppins. In one scene, Disney says artists “restore order with imagination”. Emma Thompson was asked in a recent interview by Time magazine if she agreed with that view. She responded “My godfather said that story was about taking the chaotic jigsaw of life, making it in to a picture and putting a frame around it so we could look at it, have control over it. Story and art are the humanizing elements of us.”
