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.
Based in Sydney, Australia my approach to interior design is clean and minimal, creating spaces involving equal parts simplicity and functionality by using light, form and natural materials.
Thank you for visiting.

It’s no secret that I have a love affair with Plascon paints.
Plascon in turn are well aware of my infatuation and reached out to me through social media to let me know that they’d like to send me some paint for an upcoming project.
In the order of reciprocity I suggested that I use their paints as part of a weekly ‘how-to’ series here on the blog, so over the next few weeks on Thursdays I’ll be rolling out a few tutorials.
Paint is one of the cheapest, easiest ways to transform your home and it’s easily rectified if you aren’t happy with the outcome.
Experimenting with colour is now even easier with Plascon’s new(ish) 250ml Cashmere and Double Velvet tester pots.
Also take a look at their FREE ‘Inspire Me’ mobile app which offers suggestion and input into choosing colours. Users can snap or upload a pic of a colour or scheme they like and it matches it to over 1000 of their colour offerings. Wish your room could resemble your favourite vintage dress? Now it can!
Plascon also release their 2013 palate and trends forecast info later this month, so stay tuned to see what’s in store!

I mentioned in my previous landscaping post that I plan on culturing moss in my Zen like rock garden on a few granite boulders that I found in an old quarry a few weeks ago.
It’s actually pretty easy to do and when the rain lets up I’ll be posting a ‘How-To’. In the meantime allow me to introduce you to Anna Garforth, her works will open your eyes to the amazing and endless possibilities of mossing!
