In my job as a designer, a 10-colour palette has evolved as the best starting point for decorating a space. This palette gives me positive boundaries to work with and, whether I end up using two, four, six, or all of the colours, allows me to play with the mood of a room or house and ensures an effortlessly cohesive end result. Over the past 15 years, many of my dream palettes have been brought to life as house paints with Murobond and if these colours speak to you, feel free to use them as your own. But you can also create your own 10-colour palette, an exquisite personal colour box you can refer to time and again as you curate your space to bring joy to your precious corner of the world.
I love the immediacy of paint and the fact that you can completely change a space in an afternoon’s work, so I’d encourage you to surround yourself with the colours you love. It’s time to buy some sample pots of a few of your colours. Paint large sheets of paper (make sure it’s white paper so the colour is true) which you can tape up around the room and move them around the walls so you can study the results at different times of day in natural and artificial light. This is very important as the appearance of a paint colour can change depending on the size and orientation of the room, as well as the other colours and elements in the space, such as furniture and art. Give yourself at least 24 hours to live with the colour before you make a decision.

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.
