DEFINING YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE WITH JASON GRANT
We chat with Interior Stylist, Designer, and Author, Jason Grant about his tips for defining your signature style at home and drawing inspiration to create feel good design.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE ESSENTIALS FOR A THOUGHTFULLY CURATED HOME?
I guess considering I am an interior stylist and designer, for me to say that home isn’t curated would be untrue but it's not over-considered, most of all it's comfortable. I like my home to be calm, relaxed and natural. Home is my sanctuary and escape, It's also my creative space, where the magic happens. Home should be a place you want to spend time in. I prefer to invest in quality pieces, designed well and made to last, I'm not a fan of disposable decorating or unnecessary shopping.
WHAT ARE YOUR TIPS FOR DEFINING YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
My signature style is a pure extension of who I am, my aesthetic, my creativity, my passions, my experiences and what makes me happy. It's relaxed and natural. I always focus on creating spaces that not only look great but also make people feel great too. Be it a home or a commercial space people are looking for connection, pleasure and to be nurtured. This is what I call ‘feel good’ design and style, whether they are aware of it or not. I love creating environments that are magnetic and draw people to them
WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOUR INSPIRATION FROM WHEN STYLING?
Inspiration always comes from nature, tones, textures, colours and patterns, often it's the little details that inspire me. This can be seen in my signature collection of paint and tiles and another medium I'm currently working on.
WHY DO YOU LOVE THE TOTEM ROAD FURNITURE COLLECTION?
I like things to be functional and practical but also beautiful and thoughtful, natural timber is always an element in my work and material choices, finding pieces for clients I’m always looking for simple investment pieces that are the backbone to the Totem Road collection
WHAT EXCITING THINGS DO YOU HAVE ON THE HORIZON?
I am fortunate to have a variety of work in residential and commercial interior design projects, no day is ever really the same but I do love the variety. Styling and photography for brands or myself, interior design and decorating or creative consulting are all in the mix. I also have an exciting project with an interior that's outside of the box. Plus, I am currently sampling a few new collections of my own and always have a few exciting personal creative projects on the horizon - watch this space.
