(inside) #74 'Inside Out'

A look into a life less covered inspired the Insight feature for this issue. I started with an wallpaper treatment for outside walls for the story, by Italian-based Wall&Deco, and followed it up with some properties with fabulous outdoor areas, including by Ariane Prevost's award-winning Marimekko house in Western Australia.

(inside) #74 'Illuminating work'

A trip to Footscray heralded the start of this feature, where I profiled lighting designer, Christopher Boots. He shares the studio with other creatives, and the double-storey space (in an old cotton mill complex) used to be occupied by Glen Proebstel, who I feautured in a piece published on Broadsheet. Chris and I had a great chat, where he was busy making one of his crystal pendants for a hotel in Hong Kong. Lucky them! Read it here.

(inside) #73 'A Vaulable approach'

I spoke to Gary Dart, from Duravit, for this piece. Although it was a promotional piece, he has some bold and interesting views on the A&D industry, and he isn't afraid to speak out. Read it here.

DQ #43 'Native ability'

I met George Harper for this profile story, at his workshop in Box Hill. We had tea and I listened and we chatted about the story of his business - Tide Design - and how he came to design and manufacture such beautiful furniture. He has received quite a bit of press now, which is great because he thoroughly deserves it. Thanks George! Read it here.

DQ #41 'Wonderful Journey'

This is a great Melbourne story about two interior designers forging their own fantastic design path, with their business, Wonder. When I interviewed Pip and Georgina, they were only about one year into their business, working from home and getting their heads around the business aspects of setting up shop. The image here is of their LIFEwithBIRD project, and they've since gone on to complete the interior for their new CBD store, along with a number of other exciting projects. Read it here.

Housing 'Don't move, improve'

Julian Cress is one of the key executive producers behind television programs The Block, Changing Rooms and HomeMADE. This article was for the HIA's Housing magazine, which I've been filing stories in for a few years now. I interviewed Julian to find out how HomeMADE was going and how it was filmed in eight weeks behind the scenes. At the time of the GFC, renovating was par for the course. Think it still is!
