This is my previous home, an Art Deco apartment with beautiful proportions and outdoor terrace. With a team of trusty tradespeople, the whirlwind renovation saw us ripping out the previous owner’s built-in storage and removing a dividing wall to open up what was a pokey kitchen and poorly lit living area. I also installed an outdoor kitchen to make the most of the generous entertaining space which is now home to much greenery and several of my bonsais.
I’m often telling people to not have an all white house, so I decided to take my own advice and drawing on colours from my paint range with Murobond, painted each room a different colour. But rather than creating a series of very colourful walls they’re more of a beautiful backdrop to compliment whatever I put against them.
My home is filled with the art & objects I have collected from my travels and from local makers with every room celebrating the smallest of details, even down to the kitchen drawers which are lined with a Laminex colour that matches the paint on the cabinetry. Also within the kitchen you will find about 10 different pieces from my hardware range but wonderfully they all work together, and compliment the kitchen shelving and table legs on the island bench created by my friend & blacksmith Saul of Colo Forge.
Renovating a house is like breathing new life into a familiar space. It's an exciting journey that allows you to transform your living space according to your tastes, needs, and lifestyle. Whether you're looking to update a single room or give your entire house a makeover, this comprehensive guide will walk you through the key steps of a successful house renovation.
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.
