20 Nov 2013

Your name: Rebecca Judd

What you do: Design and Lifestyle Collaborator for R.Corporation, publisher of Rebecca Judd Loves blog, Channel 9 Postcards host and Ch 9 news weather presenter.

Your latest project: Collaborating with R Corporation on their latest town house developments. R.Corp is committed to creating contemporary, design-driven townhouse developments achieved through unique features including landscape gardens by Australia’s most respected landscape designer, Paul Bangay and initiatives such as Townhouse Customisation

Who are three people that inspire/excite you:

1) my husband
2) my good friends Jacob and Anthony from J’Aton Couture. Their eye for design in a couture sense is unmatched
3) I’m loving interiors stylist Julia Green’s recent work

What is your favourite…

Car model: The new Range Rover Sport which just arrived this month

Chair model: Ro chair by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen. I bought two in salmon pink

Residential space: My own. I’m currently building my dream home. It will be finished in 2 weeks!

Commercial space: I love anything by Hecker Guthrie and the new Prahran Hotel by Techne Architects is pretty cool.

Decorative product: Ebony stain by Sikkens

Functional product: I love my new Victoria and Albert Napoli freestanding bath made of volcanic stone. I’m looking forward to lighting a couple of candles and christening it with a long soak.

Handmade good: my J’aton wedding dress. Heaven.

Mass-produced good: IKEA high chairs. Cheap, functional, easy to hose down and not precious at all. The best $20 any new parent will spend.

Meal: The pork pancakes are hard to go past at Chin Chin

Restaurant: cumulus Inc

Drink: a glass of Billecart-Salmon. Perfection.

Bar: Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel, NYC

Piece of technology: iPhone- can’t live without it. It’s sad really as it is like oxygen to me. 

Vice: Chocolate – Cadbury! It’s the best.

Virtue: it’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice

What does the term ‘Design Hunter’ mean to you? Constantly searching for innovative, pretty and functional wares. This is what I do on a daily basis in my hunt for new ideas for R. Corporation and to share with my loyal RJL readers. It needs to be attainable and relevant. I love making new discoveries…
