MUGS

There are eight mugs sit­ting on a con­sole in Scott’s bed­room. They were a leav­ing gift from his previous work­place. Each mug has the name of a col­league and a cheeky phrase about some­thing he taught them.

SCULPTED HEADS

Scott has three of these Bren­dan Hunt­ley heads: on the ta­ble, be­side the couch and in the hall. He likes to swap them around depend­ing on his mood and give each a turn on the din­ing ta­ble so “it makes eye con­tact and greets you as you come into the room”.

CEDAR CAB­I­NETRY

Scott is colour-blind and had to rely on ar­chi­tect Paul Clarke to choose the colour of the cab­i­nets. They con­ceal a beer fridge, a gift from the builders to com­pen­sate for mak­ing him down­grade the size of his big­ger fridge to fit the cab­i­netry.
