As you reach the top levels of 4 and 5 to Henry Deane, a lounge bar you experience my take on present day Australia with newly renovated areas and 360 views offering the most glorious scenes that Sydney has to offer. Every surface is hand touched.
You enter the lobby with hand printed marble wallpaper, antler chandelier, salvaged wooden doors and catch glimpses of the indigo dyed bar capped with a hand smithed brass curve. The classic cubic tiles dictate the fourth floor with views of the sunset which can be watched from the bespoke curved leather banquette. Two private rooms, The Linnean & The Push Room, bookend the Eastern side with inky blue interiors & uber comfy lounge furniture with a private balcony – These are glamorous rooms filled with unique finds offering an ‘settle-in-for-the day/evening’ experience like no other. Don’t miss the marble bathroom & handpainted paper – a jewel box experience in its self. The walls are hung with Australian contemporary artworks including celebrated artist, Paul Ryan’s Blue Boy who watches gallantly over the space.
Whereas Level 4 is inky & rich as you ascend the steel clad staircase, you reach the top of the world – all airy, bright & magical. Floaty hand dipped curtains blow in the breeze, as waiters glide around pink leather sofas & handprinted leather DJ box with cocktails & oysters. We built a curved glass panelled kitchen that meets the porcelain & leather fronted bar that flanks the Southern wall. The salvaged hardwood floor is a nod to the areas industrial past lit by custom brass cap shades. Everything in this space is custom-made & handtouched by many talented artists, makers, painters, tinkerers, drapers, creatives, builders, smiths, signwriters, wrights, potters, tanners, glaziers, electricians & pickers who I coerced , wrangled & talked into making things in record time.
Hotel Palisade sits proudly on the hill, a beacon protecting the shores, a historical landmark that has been brought back to life with its next chapter ready to be written.

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.
