Mar­ket­ing man­ager, Liv­ing Edge

De­sign clas­sics and per­sonal trea­sures min­gle in the in­ner-Syd­ney ter­race Skye shares with her hus­band Ben, daugh­ter Sun­day, new­born Felix and Reuben the cat.

SKYE’S FAVOURITE THINGS

Paint­ing By a dear friend, Ber­lin-based artist Joseph Marr.

Fig­urines Sun­day and I call these Vi­tra dolls Mr Anx­i­ety and Mrs Mys­tery. Jar A birth­day gift from my sis­ter-in-law, Su­san­nah.

Books I Iove leaf­ing through de­sign ti­tles when I’m in need of in­spi­ra­tion. Chair Sun­day curls up in this Eames rocker with me to read sto­ries. I hope she’ll pass it on to her own chil­dren.

Stool Another Eames clas­sic from Liv­ing Edge. It pops up all over our house as a side table or ex­tra seat. Rug I love the feel of cowhide un­der­foot, and it goes so well with mid-cen­tury de­signs.

Cat We adopted Reuben as a kit­ten. Now he’s a gen­tle gi­ant.

MY LO­CAL HAUNTS

I love my neigh­bour­hood be­cause there are lots of young fam­i­lies and a great sense of com­mu­nity, and we can walk or cy­cle al­most any­where. On week­ends we’ll catch up with friends at Red­fern Park or Prince Al­fred Park. Favourite places for re­tail ther­apy are Sea­sonal Con­cepts and Chee Soon & Fitzger­ald in Red­fern. Three Wil­liams cafe, also in Red­fern, has great food and cof­fee.
