People often ask me how i get inspired.
I’m sure it happens different ways for different designers – but for me, it happens outside.
It’s no secret i am in love with the natural bushland of my hometown. It’s the blue sky, the blazing sun, the wind, the red dirt, the rugged bush. The pretty wildflowers that are somehow hard and delicate all at once. The trees, gnarled from bush fires, and beaten by the sun and lack of water. The winding river, the rolling hills, the ocean crashing on sand, the air full of salt. I love this sunburnt country.
The thing is, it’s not just the nature itself i love. Its the way i feel when i’m there. That’s what i like to design for. That feeling.
Right now, we are very lucky to live in the Swan Valley – right where the Swan river meets the Darling Ranges hills. It’s an area known for wineries, horse farms, and beautiful bushland teeming with native wildlife. It’s where i grew up, and where i developed my aesthetic.
Honestly, I couldn’t be more inspired right now. And that’s just the way i like to be.
