FAVOURITE THINGS

Art­works Beach by Cather­ine Nel­son [left] and an im­age I cap­tured in Hoi An, Viet­nam. Side­board One of the first vintage Dan­ish pieces my hus­band and I bought to­gether. Ce­ramic pots From The Nomad So­ci­ety in Prahran. Black glass vase Ge­org Jensen. Sofa This deep ‘Frankie’ sofa from Fan­uli is our favourite place to wind down. Cof­fee ta­ble Adrian and I de­signed this in Car­rara mar­ble, pow­der­coated steel and spot­ted gum. Books Gifts col­lected over a life­time. My el­dest daugh­ter gave me Jardin des Modes, a 1956 French pub­li­ca­tion, when she re­turned from her first trip alone to Paris. Wool rug Made to mea­sure by Cav­a­lier Brem­worth.

What does ‘home’ mean to you?

It’s our sanc­tu­ary, full of mem­o­ries of des­ti­na­tions we have trav­elled to and experiences we’ve shared. Where are your favourite places to eat and shop? Sero­tonin Eatery in Burn­ley never dis­ap­points. And Husk bou­tiques for ap­parel, home­wares and jew­ellery.

Where do you find in­spi­ra­tion? The Na­tional Gallery of Vic­to­ria and walk­ing through the Royal Botanic Gar­dens Mel­bourne. >
