Renovating your home is a very personal experience, one that should be guided by exactly what you want & need from your home. That said, there are still some pointers I can offer to help you narrow your vision. Here's some things I keep in mind when changing a space.
1. Avoid the pursuit of perfection. Slapdash wallpapering, with all its tracks and unaligned patterns, creates an eccentric, transient sculpture. All the slightly skew-wiff details only make a home more unique.
2. Let the space direct you, not the other way around. Often you will create something you never would have thought of. Understand what you're working with before stomping through in your steel-capped boots.
3. Don’t feel like your rooms have to have all the mod cons – install only what you’ll use and suits your lifestyle.
4. Create a dedicated sanctuary space within your home. Lookouts & sanctuaries often inspire contemplation or offer a place to hide away. By making one of your own, you create a moment and space to breathe and reflect without climbing to the top of a lighthouse and staring into an expanse of ocean.
5. Make every object count.

We whizzed down the back streets of Seminyak and the smaller the streets became the deeper we time travel into a Bali of a time gone-by...
This year, my dear friend and photographer; William Meppem and I captured the essence of this perfect boathouse, located in Newport, Sydney. The ideal spot to drop your anchor this holiday season.
I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space. Situated amongst the quintessential Sydney landscape of emerald green water and unique sandstone structures - surrounded by angophora gums.
With the extension of the dinghy & direct entrance to the water, this house evolves into an explorative landscape that extends beyond its petite footprint. If I were to create the ideal boathouse... This would be it.
