FAVOURITE ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE AND WHY:

My favourite room would have to be my bedroom. I love the morning light that filters through the sheer curtains. The mood is calm and tranquil.

3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE

Contemporary, colourful, textural…whilst always keeping in mind context to people’s lifestyle and their environment.

3 TOP HOMEWARES/FURNITURE STORES TO VISIT IN MELBOURNE:

My all-time favourite is Great Dane Furniture. Love Artemide for lighting and Safari Living is wonderful for accessories.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF IN YOUR HOME?

I buy pieces that appeal to my heart. You should never underestimate how a piece can make you feel.

WHAT WILL BE YOUR NEXT PURCHASE FOR YOUR HOME?

I have my eye on the September chair from Great Dane. Designed by Dennis Marquart for OX.

NAME TWO ITEMS YOU SHOULD NEVER SKIMP ON IN YOUR HOME:

Lighting and quality materials

MESSY OR NEAT?

There’s always a method of madness is my home, so messy always wins!

BEST DESIGN/DECORATING TIP YOU COULD GIVE OUR READERS:

Don’t over think your home and what others may like. Stay true to your style and fill it with pieces that make you smile.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR DESIGN INSPIRATION FROM?

Travelling; I am addicted to the colour, texture and craftsmanship that is characteristic of these countries. Over the years I have spent months on end rummaging through markets and bazaars and meeting artists that have inspired me. I have since launched a range of legendary bone inlay furniture from India. Pieces that can be ordered as is, or customised to suit siz, pattern and colour of choice!

Pillow talk


My husband and kids can’t understand why I need to put so many cushions/pillows on the couches and our bed.  Every night I have to rearrange all the cushions that have been thrown on the floor in a big mess.  So why do I bother? Because cushions are an easy way to add warmth and texture to a room.  They are also a relatively inexpensive way to change the look and feel of a room without completely redecorating.  So, even though the rest of my family don’t feel the same, THE MORE CUSHIONS THE BETTER!!! Does this happen in your house too? Let me know.
