Photography by Chris Court
Over the last couple of years I have had the honour of working with architects, Durbach Block Jaggers on this incredible home in Sydney. Our insightful clients had the idea to team up me (the maximalist) with Neil & the DBJ team (the minimalists) and we had a cracking time. The result was featured in Vogue Living’s ‘Australian Made’ Issue May/June 2021 with my brother Chris Court’s photography.
Under the theme of Australian made we make special mention to some of my esteemed Australian collaborators & suppliers who have helped me to realise the interiors of this project. The glowing naked porcelain pendant which was placed above the kitchen island was made by Melbourne based studio Porcelain Bear. A kinetic hand crafted brass light shifts & turns like an orbiting constellation above the dining area & was designed & made in Australia with my blacksmith Saul of Colo Forge. We used fine sculptural jewellery, organic flora & a dusting of hand tinkered magic to inspire the petal forms of this piece. We sourced classic vintage pieces from the fabulous Ken Neale to relax the strong artistic sensibility of the classic Egg chairs that sit proud by the fireplace. A generous & soft panelled bed was hand crafted by brilliant joiner J.West & positioned to soak in the world class Sydney Harbour view.
The motif of Australian made frames a silver lining on the turbulent year that was 2020. The pandemic has given us a huge appreciation for the local makers & businesses that have shone luminously & resiliently through this turbulent time.

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.
