Jessica Bellef is a freelance stylist and writer, who contributes regularly to major interiors publications such as Inside Out and Home Beautiful.
She was Temple & Webster’s founding Head of Styling, which cemented her position as a home styling commentator and gave her insight into how Australian’s make a house a home. Jessica has taught extensively on the topic of creative design.
Her book, “Individual: Inspiration for creating a home that is uniquely your own” was published in Oct 2019.
“Individual” journeys to 15 truly unique homes that are authentic reflections of the people who inhabit them, from an art-filled city terrace to a magical seaside shack and a 1970s-era palace in the ’burbs.
It’s packed full of practical, actionable tips, and Jessica has a brilliant way of giving you how-to’s that are achievable regardless of the size or type of home, and whether you would call yourself stylish or not.
In “Individual”, Jessica writes, “A showroom is no place to live. It’s like the set of a play … A showroom isn’t a personal space in which to be. It’s no place for the tangle of layered memories and the mercurial nature of daily life.”
I was highlighting quotables throughout this entire book (including this one), nodding my head, and silently agreeing with the messages of how to make your home a creative, liveable and authentic representation of how you and your family lives.
In this episode, we talk about:
- How did Jess choose styling as a career?
- How did Jess find the homes and people she featured in “Individual“?
- Jess’ tips and advice for incorporate vintage, second-hand and antiques into your home
- And how your home’s interior can evolve and develop over time.
I really hope you enjoy this episode. Listen now.
