Design Hunter Q+A: Emma Blomfield
For this week's Design Hunter profile we catch up with Emma Blomfield of Nest Design, to hear about her love of the seaside, chocolate and classic bentwood dining chairs.
Your name: Emma Blomfield
What you do: I’m a Sydney based Interior Stylist specialising in online decorating so that I am able to offer my services to homeowners across the country, especially those in rural or regional areas with limited access to design services. (nestdesigns.com.au)
Your latest project: A holiday rental apartment in Palm Beach, it’s a full fit out, right down to the corkscrews in the cupboards! As well as travelling the country to run decorating workshops in rural areas, it’s so great to meet so many lovely homeowners around Australia and see that my city clients and rural clients share many common decorating problems despite their locations. It’s been a really rewarding and inspiring experience so far, with three more workshops across the east coast booked in for the rest of this year.
Who are three people that inspire/excite you:
What is your favourite…
Car/bike/plane/boat model: Aston Martin
Chair model: The classic shape of the Bentwood dining chair
Residential space: somewhere by the sea
Commercial space: ditto above!
Decorative product: flowers and candles, they finish off any room.
Functional product: sounds nerdy and a bit silly but I really love my iPhone!
Handmade good: pretty much anything I find on Etsy
Mass-produced good: Lindt orange chocolate
restaurant: Pony in The Rocks
drink: watermelon & mint cocktail
bar: Baxters Inn
item in your studio: my custom mouse pad!
piece of technology: toss up between my iPhone and my Macbook. Both I cannot live without.
historical figure: all through high school history, I was fascinated by Henry VIII and his six wives.
fictional character: Cinderella. I believe in fairy tales.
vice: my inability to finish dinner without having chocolate afterwards.
