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.
