PHILOSOPHY

I AIM TO PROVIDE A CONSIDERED + SENSITIVE, PRACTICAL APPROACH WHICH IS MODEST AND TIMELESS. I LOVE DESIGN THAT IS RATIONAL, ELEGANT AND LUXURIOUS BUT SIMPLE. AUTHENTIC AND UNDERSTATED, BUT PLAYFUL. I FEEL CONTEXT, EXPERIENCE AND CULTURE ARE IMPORTANT SO I’D DESCRIBE MY STYLE AS MODERN AUSTRALIAN. IT HAS BEEN INFLUENCED BY THE PLACES I HAVE LIVED (JAPAN, PHILIPPINES, NORTHERN BEACHES OF SYDNEY). I HAVE A SENSITIVE AND CONFIDENT BUT UNDERSTATED USE OF COLOUR. I LIKE TO USE TEXTURES THAT ARE TACTILE AND ORGANIC IN FEEL AND APPEARANCE. I FEEL DESIGN COMES ALIVE WHEN THERE IS AN ELEMENT OF DRAMA AND CONTRAST.

I AM SERIOUS ABOUT DESIGN BUT DON’T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY. I BELIEVE, LIKE AN ACTOR PREPARING FOR A ROLE, THAT A DESIGNER NEEDS TO HAVE A RANGE. IT IS THE ROLE OF THE DESIGNER TO INTERPRET, RESEARCH AND STEP INTO THE SHOES OF THAT WAY OF LIFE. EMPATHY IS IMPORTANT.

“IT IS ALWAYS INTERESTING WHAT STANDS THE TEST OF TIME WHEN IT COMES TO DESIGN. LOOKING OVER THE IMAGES OF ROMAINE ALWILL’S WHEN SHE WORKED AT BELLE MAGAZINE I’M IMPRESSED BY HOW STUNNING AND THOUGHTFUL THE IMAGES ARE – STILL”.

NATALIE WALTON, THE DAILY IMRPINT.

“THESE INTERIORS ARE SOME THAT HAVE BEEN PUT TOGETHER BY DEFT AND EXPERIENCED HANDS. WELL COMPOSED AND BEAUTIFULLY LAYERED. THIS IS NOT EASILY DONE”.
