Who's your biggest interior designer crush?

My husband. I think I know what I’m doing design wise and then he’ll pick up an incredible designer chair that completely transforms our apartment. It makes our home a little quirky sometimes, but with his beautiful taste contrasting my own, it makes the space beautiful to me, and deeply personal. 

What's your dream piece of décor?

Right now it’s the Greta Grossman grasshopper floor lamp, which is elegant and a little awkward the way it leans back like a little insect. It cheers me up and it looks beautiful; to me that’s good design. 

Whose photos do you heart on Instagram?

I follow a lot of chefs on Instagram. The photos are occasionally awful, but they’re fascinating food wise, they’re real and not too posed or perfect. It’s refreshing. It’s a great way for me to pick up on trends for my column in Sunday Style as well. I love Dan Pepperell’s food shots (@danielpepperell), and Mitch Orr at ACME (@instakrill) is always inspiring and delicious. Also, Three Blue Ducks’ Darren Robertson (@darrenthreeblueducks) has moved to Byron Bay and the whole feed is totally beautiful and fun, plus you get to see what produce is coming into season at his latest venture, The Farm. 

What's your go-to cocktail?

Negroni. You can tell a lot about a place by the quality of their negroni.
