My obsession at the moment is how do we live in our Urban Cities and stay connected to the environment? When you meet people who live off the land it is powerfully clear how they have a connection and awareness about mother nature that us city folk don't. Sometimes I feel like those of us living in mega cities are like animals caged in a zoo unaware of the elements. When we do discuss the whether it is usually about how inconvenient a snow storm is when we are commuting to and from work or a pair of new suede shoes have been destroyed from a freak flash rain storm. I have to be honest it does scare me sometimes how little we think about how our planet is coping with nearly half of the worlds population living in town and cities.
I soon will be sharing with you some of the solutions I have been researching that will show how future thinking in design can help us all look past our local concrete jungles.
I'm an interiors addict and I'm currently a judge on Top Design Australia. I have been involved with quite a few loved interior magazines across the globe. I was Associate Editor @ British ELLE Decoration and Homes Editor @ Livingetc. I have consulted for StudioIlse, WGSN and IKEA. What really interests me is how we all live in the space we call home. As much as I want to know about the latest chair, must-have-accessory and hottest trends - the thing that gets me really excited is how we use our everyday objects. This blog is a chance to explore, laugh and relate to different people and families from across the globe who all have one thing in common. They love their home. Enjoy
