The (former) home of....Mathieu Gallois

This awesome urban jungle apartment was home to artist Mathieu Gallois for 17 years until 2014 when the owners sold the plot for redevelopment. Mathieu installed skylights to ensure his plethora of jungle plants would continue to thrive in the warehouse apartment. Not just his home Mathieu also used the Redfern pad as a studio.

I love the use of plants so much! I'd be unable to live there though - all my plants die on me. But this is AWESOME inspiration.

Such a fun, calm, whimsical space. Love it. Would love to be the guest there. The plants as background make a great color for the other life going on around them. I tend to kill plants, too, but am inspired to try again and learn to be a better tender. Thx for this bit of ahhhh to appreciate.
