Alaana wrote about the glam­orous revamp of a house in Syd­ney’s north, p132. Who are some of your en­dur­ing creative in uences? Mel­bourne in­te­rior de­signer Chelsea Hing is some­one whose work ap­peals to me. She’s bold and gains her clients’ trust. I’m also drawn to the work of orist Saskia Havekes of Grandi ora. Where is home for you? Syd­ney’s north­ern beaches. Favourite lo­cal haunts? For cof­fee and break­fast I like Berkelo in Brook­vale or The Boathouse at Shelly Beach. For home­wares, Smith­made in Bal­go­wlah or Mr and Mrs White in Har­bord. For restau­rants, Chica Bonita or Sun­set Sabi, both in Manly. Uti­mate travel es­capes in 2018? Mex­ico, Morocco or In­dia. De­sign items you are cov­et­ing? Eero Saari­nen’s ‘Tulip’ ta­ble or Hay’s ‘Ikea’ bag. On your read­ing/view­ing list? Gut by Gi­u­lia En­ders, Lionel Shriver’s So Much for That, and Ari­anna Huf ng­ton’s Thrive. What else is in­spir­ing you? Yves Béhar is a de­signer whose ethos res­onates.
