Besides her many projects encompassing private residences and hospitality, Rebecca creates enticing furnishings. As one can expect, she won’t reveal the secret of her success, but she was kind enough to share with us some insights on her work and background.
What drew you to interior design and what do you like the most about it?
I would say my Australian up-bringing: An inspiration filled childhood in a country, where colour and an expansive sense of freedom meant embracing different cultures and lifestyle attitudes. This gave me the confidence to explore new ideas: The ‘new world’ is more open to modernity and that ethos continues to influence me. As for furniture design, for me, it is more about a love affair with form, colour and a natural progression inspired by the many masters of design to break boundaries and create pieces that are fun and colourful while being spectacular, beautiful and intriguing.
