In celebration of Pride Month and #WeWelcomeAll, West Elm Australia partnered with Sydney-based drag queen, Vybe (Angus Robertson), to create some makeover magic in her apartment.

Focusing on the living room, stylist Jono Fleming introduced dashes of bold color with our Bradford Sofa, Illusionary Rug and sculptural decorating accents that are as vibrant as Vybe herself. “I focused on celebrating Vybe’s personality. She’s vibrant, bold and beautiful – the makeover was about creating joy, as well as being a mirror of Vybe’s strength, creativity – she’s a force,” said Jono.

Colorful, fabulous, and filled with personality, the results speak for themselves.

Home is where we get to be ourselves, surrounded with the people, pieces, and pets we love. “My dog’s name is King – because he’s the King of Queens!” says Vybe.

“I am in LOVE with the result – the space is warm, inviting, stylish and as camp as I am! I can’t wait to kick off my heels and get on the couch at the end of the day.”

Taking pride in each other’s unique passions and personalities, the makeover gave the team the opportunity to celebrate inclusivity, diversity and equality as part of their Pride festivities.

“Pride is a month-long global celebration of sexual diversity and gender variance,” says Vybe. “It’s also an opportunity for everyone to take a stance against discrimination.”
