My name is Matt Allison.
I go by many titles with over a decade of experience in the design industry with my work being featured in lifestyle publications like Home, House & Leisure, Elle Decoration, VISI, Real Estate, Good Taste & The Sunday Times.
My approach to interior design & styling is clean and minimal. I believe that creating livable spaces involve equal parts simplicity and functionality.
This blog shares my love of Scandinavian design and its use of light, form and natural materials.
Thank you for visiting.

Next Tues, June 5th is World Environment Day and to celebrate Yuppiechef will be hosting the second annual Eat for the Earth, inviting people to host or attend an event to raise funds for Soil for Life, an NGO very close to my heart.
To quote them:
Soil for Life, a Cape Town-based NGO, is teaching people how to build the soil and grow healthy plants so that families can sit down to plates of safe, fresh nutritious food at night, all year round. The low-cost methods enable gardeners to harvest large amounts of food from small spaces using very little water and no harmful chemicals.
I hosted a dinner last year, literally cooked out of the garden, you can read about it over on Chef Prive’s blog.
So consider getting involved by either signing up to host and event or attend one.
Well it’s official! I’ll be launching Planting Thoughts at Together at Tjing Tjing Market this Tuesday, 29th May!
It’s been a mad rush to pull it all together and I’m still running around like a headless chicken as I add the finishing touches.
In celebration I’ll be giving out free seed packets to encourage you to grow your own, a mix of herbs and instructions for sowing them will appear on Planting Thoughts, set to launch the same day.
It’s been a collaborative effort between myself and the lovely Lauren Fowler who designed the epic tags.
To show just how easy it is and how they beautify your life fellow exhibitor Sarah Benjamin of Sessi Bee Ceramics has immortalized my bust in one of her bowls, complete with a living, breathing mini herb garden.
While it’s not Madame Tussauds, it’s infinitely more amazing.
