Real Living (Australia) - - HOMES -

1. What’s your favourite, local in­te­rior store? “ABC Car­pet & Home on Broad­way [Ab­].” 2. Where did you find your fur­ni­ture?

“A lot of the pieces are hand-me-downs. Some of the nicer, clas­sic stuff was my father’s, and Si­mon has made a lot of the fur­ni­ture in­clud­ing the bed, bed­room shelf and benches. We also have a few Ikea pieces too.”

3. Do you visit flea mar­kets?

“Yes, mainly up­state and in Penn­syl­va­nia

– you find bet­ter prices out­side of the city.”

4. What’s your fave in­te­rior space in your neigh­bour­hood? “Loosie Rouge bar and Loosie’s Kitchen restau­rant in Wil­liams­burg [Loosier­]. They have an in­ter­est­ing decor that’s both laid­back­West-Coast-meets-East-Coast and imag­i­na­tive. They have a great lit­tle out­door space that we re­ally ad­mire, and de­li­cious food of course.”

5. Where do you get your plants from?

“My favourite shops in the neigh­bor­hood are Sprout and Jun­gle. I’ve also prop­a­gated from friends’ plants and some of the big ones I grew from lit­tle ba­bies. The con­di­tions in the loft are so per­fect for them; they grow in­cred­i­bly fast and well.”
