TO CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF GREG NATALE’S NEW HOMEWARE RANGE, WE GET THE DESIGN GURU’S INTERIOR TIPS FROM HIS SYDNEY OFFICES.
Greg Natale takes us inside his on-point offices for a masterclass in design.
“Sofas should be in simpler prints or block colours where possible. Cushions, throws, rugs and statement chairs can easily be added to create a dynamic contrast.”

Wood/brass occasional table, $3614, by Greg Natale. “Consider colour- blocking books, mixing ceramics and metallic, and varying the form and size of objects to create a vibrant array. Some books look best stacked and others lined up vertically.” “I choose art based on how it looks in the room, but you have to love the piece too. Letting artwork speak is important, so give it sufficient space on the wall and ensure it’s illuminated correctly.”
“Combine organic and geometric patterns for a dynamic arrangement. Sit cushions on their flat side, not in a diamond shape. For a two-seater, I recommend four cushions, or six for a three-seater.”
