My name is Matt Allison.
I go by many titles with over a decade of experience in the design industry. My work has been featured in various lifestyle publications including Home, House & Leisure, Elle Decoration, VISI, Real Estate, Good Taste & The Sunday Times.
Based in Sydney, Australia my approach to interior styling is clean and timeless. I believe in creating spaces that are simple and functional, yet practical enough to deal with the ever-growing demands of daily life.

I love this short doccie looking at how NYC is working towards bringing back food production back into the city, an ideal that is close to my heart as a vocational ‘Urban Farmer’.
I grow food in urban farm lots and support my community through a weekly urban farmers market I co-founded and provide local eateries with a selection of fresh, picked daily old world/heirloom vegetables.
If you are keen to try your hand at growing your own edible garden take a look at this short video I did for eXpresso Show.

I recently cleared the installation that sat atop the upright piano in our livingroom and I’ve been wanting to bring elements of natural history/botanicals into the new as yet to be curated vignette.
Part of my deliberation has been that I’m struggling to find the balance between ‘simple yet stimulating’ and ‘cluttered bohemian collector’, which I think is buried deep down inside of me.
The pics above at least showcase that you can still have ‘simple’ collections without being overly styled or busy, which I guess is what I’m hoping for.
