Here is a little bit of info about me!

I am: mother of two gorgeous little boys, originally from Australia, currently living in HK, and slightly obsessed with DIY and pretty things for home interiors.


My current obsessions: anything gold, animal print, black and white, peonies, Moroccan wedding blankets, kilim rugs, lucite, pink, sunburst mirrors (preferably in gold!), velvet sofas, tufted sofas, antlers, leather armchairs the colour of a Cuban cigar, walnut wood furniture, mid-century modern furniture legs (especially the ones with brass caps), antique furniture, fiddle leaf figs, bamboo furniture, Chinoiserie, succulents…. Honestly, this list could be endless.  If it’s pretty, I like it!

Things I am not too keen on: chevron (I am now officially over it), tablecloths (no idea why, but I just don’t like them), pictures hung too high on a wall (I’m looking at you, baby boomers…), yellow knotty pine anything.

As a designer: I am passionate about affordable design.  As a mum to two young boys, I love the challenge of creating super stylish, beautiful rooms on a tight budget.  I am drawn to clean, modern lines in furniture but also love me some antiques and, of course, a few DIY touches!

  1. Hi Dee,

    Great article about your home at Playtimes. Thanks for sharing.

    One question if you don’t mind. I note with interest the wall system in some of the pictures where a rail is installed at top of walls with thin wires running down and holding what look like heavy picture frames. I wonder what system is that and where can I buy it in Hong Kong?

    Many thanks.
