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 and design 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.
Thank you for visiting.

Well as I shared in my last post I’ve been rather busy in various gardens now that Spring has officially sprung, including the one in this video, my 400m2 urban farm in Constantia.
Aside from my passion for design and decor I also have an intense love for food, growing it as much as preparing and eating it.
If you’re based in Cape Town I’ll be doing a ‘Grow Your Own’ workshop at Spier’s Secret Festival next month.
I’m now also turning my focus to home brewing and this weekend I’ll be partaking in a partial mash course at the Beer Lab and will have a full report back for your next week, and hopefully a couple liters of my first brew in the making.
What have you been getting up to this Spring season?
I’ve been moving things around the house in preparation of achieving one of my 4 Simple Goals (before 2013), piecing together an art wall.
You have no idea how much time actually goes into planning a seemingly random, asymmetrical body of work!
Here’s a tip though, place all your artwork on the floor and assemble them there and then transfer them to the wall or make cut outs of each piece and masking tape them to the wall as you experiment with the layout.
