Book: A Place Called Home
The highly illustrative book, A Place Called Home: Creating Beautiful Spaces to Call Your Own, by Australian based freelance interiors, lifestyle and prop stylist, Mr. Jason Grant provides readers with a creative guide of useful tips and visuals on how to create a space that is meaningful to its owner. “For real life, I don’t believe we need to create ‘perfect’ homes. Instead I think it is about creating a space that says something special about who you are and your style of living” says Grant.

01 What type of gatherings do you typically host?
Day into night BBQs. I am usually in charge of the BBQ.
02 Which items can always be found on your table when you entertain?
Mix and match serving ware, timber serving boards, classic linen napery and my good set of stemless wine glasses, which are perfect for everything from water to wine.
03 Any advice on setting the table?
Keep it relaxed and casual, not everything needs to match, and think about statement cutlery and glassware.
04 Where do you shop for tableware?
West Elm, Small Spaces (I love small, independent retailers) and Koskela, which is a large showroom in Sydney that focusses on locally made design products.
