The very magical Fforest Farmhouse, near Cardigan, Wales, created by Sian Tucker and shot for the issue 7 of Modern Rustic.   The latest addition in a series of beautiful accommodation available to stay in at Fforest Farm.   I’ve already booked to go back as a guest.

Caerau Farmhouse, Wales

January 26th, 2017

Yet another beautiful Welsh farmhouse that I had the pleasure of shooting last year, this time the home of a dear friend, stylist Alex Lewis.  Refurbished almost entirely single handedly and situated moments from where he was raised, near Narbeth.   Alex has now moved onto an even bigger project that I can’t wait to shoot one day!

Joa Studholme

November 1st, 2016

As the colour consultant for Farrow and Ball, Joa Studholme’s West London home is both diverse and subtle in it’s colour variations.  I had the pleasure of shooting her home as she was celebrating the publication of her book, How to Decorate.   I also discovered I could talk paint colours all day long!

Clare and David Hieatt’s Welsh farmhouse

October 18th, 2016

I’ve had five trips to shoot in Wales this year, seeing the gorgeous countryside in every season.  This was my first trip of the year, deep in winter, to shoot Clare and David Hieatt’s farmhouse in Cardigan.  Their farmhouse is the home of the Do Lectures, a yearly gathering that is part festival, part conference.  People who Do things, inspiring others to Do.  They are also the minds behind Huit Denim, a brand doing one thing – jeans – and doing it extremely well.  Needless to say, I was in heaven.

Faded Victorian grandeur in Sydney

August 23rd, 2016

Rani Chaleyer, documentary director and vintage furniture collector, set up home in this former backpackers hostel in central Sydney.  Locally known as the “Pink Palace”, this place is being lovingly restored to former glory days and is alive with family gatherings and a procession of guests – including lucky old me!  Styled by Megan Norgate.

Mid Century Melbourne

August 18th, 2016

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting in my home town of Melbourne, late last year.  Cherie Slater, one half of the team behind homeware brand Marmoset Found and lifestyle store Wren Store, let us inside her beautiful mid century home.   Looking at the Jacaranda tree now makes me homesick!

Curio & Curio

March 10th, 2016

Last year I had the pleasure of spending a sunny Spring day shooting the rural home of Clair and Nick, the design team behind Curio & Curio.  As recent transplants from Melbourne to Heredfordshire, we had a lot to chat about!
