How would you describe your aesthetic?
Simply put, I would describe my aesthetic as eclectic, with a strong emphasis on texture, color and pattern being the common thread. In some respects, my aesthetic is post-modern – combining styles and principles from many eras with an emphasis on balance, warmth, comfort, color and whimsy. I love combining older pieces with contemporary ones and, so long as they are imbued with a similar language or essence, they will work together. The Australian aesthetic of relaxed living and confident palettes that complement our environment also plays a part.
Give us a little insight into your design process.
The design process is always a collaboration between the client and designer. Firstly, I visit the site and listen to the client and observe how they live, absorbing cues along the way. On many occasions, I observe the space and it often tells me what it wants. Then I present the client with ideas that I feel confidently express the way they live, and as well as working within the parameters of my aesthetic and style.
