Episode 31 Becker Minty: Jason Minty
This week, we chat with the owner of the luxury boutique store Becker Minty - Jason Minty. Becker Minty is THE go-to store for glamorous and eclectic homewares and art in Sydney. We describe his store as going on a treasure hunt, there are so many goodies you can't resist! Jason has an interesting story, he studied abroad in China, was a flight attendant for Qantas before changing paths to opening a boutique store in Potts Point. Jason has an exceptional eye for curating unique pieces and then introducing them to the Australian market.. A great example is Kelly Wearstler's homewares range, need we say more! It's why interior designers and stylists flock to his store and art opening to see what homewares and art he is showcasing next. His passion to find eclectic and luxury pieces instead of stocking the same as other stores is a key factor to his success.

Episode 30 Antonia Perricone
Growing up in a tight-knit multi-cultural community in Sydney's western suburbs, Antonia was raised in a traditional Italian household where everything was made by hand, including her clothes. This interest in clothes landed her first job - assistant fashion stylist for David Jones's advertising department, at 16. She then became lead stylist for the brand and freelanced for other brands and a tv station. After having children, her passion for art and desire to have an education grew strong, so she enrolled into art school at age 46. Since graduating, she has taken many leaps up the art world ranks to now one of Australia's leading artists. Her accolades all stem from just a simple longing to feel creatively fulfilled. As friends of Antonia, we couldn't be prouder. Not only is she incredibly talented, she is also one of the kindest, most thoughtful and friendliest women in the art world. We are so excited to share her story with you.

Episode 25 Daimon Downey
After a childhood in the picturesque town of Bellingen, artist Daimon Downey was ready to take the big smoke by storm with his art. But a fortuitous session jamming at a party lead to an unexpected career, the frontman of Australian dance music group Sneaky Sound System. Safe to say not your average career diversion... a few hit songs, a couple of ARIA awards and fourteen years later, he decided to hang up the headphones and get back to his first passion, painting. Nowadays, Daimon is living in Bondi in his apartment/art studio where he has taken the art scene by storm. Sold out shows, cooler than cool collaborations, and some very funky interior fit outs along the way, Daimon has made an indelible mark on the scene and there's no slowing down. With a strong pastel colour palette, his art is loud, full of life, pace and unabashed colour. We chat about the Sneaky years, where he gets his inspo, his home and what's around the corner. The man oozes cool and we had a blast chatting with him.

BONUS Episode 22 Kerrie-Ann Jones
And we're back with part two of our special two part bonus episodes where we are interviewing each other! This week, Kerrie-Ann is in the hot seat and we delve into the world of one of the industry's most accomplished stylists. You've seen her work grace the covers of so many magazines, but before Kerrie-Ann took the styling world by storm, she had a whole other career. One of our favourite things we talk about with guests is their 'pivot' moment, when they go from one industry, take a chance and switch it up. Kerrie-Ann has had a few pivots in her time, from dance, to almost a decade in the music industry, her pivot came from her love of design and interiors. Kerrie-Ann's experience in the industry shows you can't sit around and wait for opportunities to land at your feet, if you want something to happen, it starts with you. This is a story about seeking your dream out and grabbing it. There's no sign of her slowing down either, and her next project is just around the corner, The Stylist's Lab, an online masterclass on finding your own personal style and how to hone your skills. We can't wait to check it out!

BONUS Episode 21 Jono Fleming
This week is part one of our special two part bonus episodes where we are interviewing each other! First up is Jono, our resident interior designer. Jono is a self confessed 'curated maximalist' with a short attention span and a love for design. We start at the beginning where Jono's first creative outlet was as a budding musician, but it wasn't long until he knew interiors and designer were his main focus. After a gap year in England (that alone is a story you won't want to miss), he came back to Sydney with interiors on the mind and has been going ever since. It hasn't always been the easiest path, there's lots of ups and downs, plus a brief detour to cook in Italy, but no matter what, Jono's passion for the industry has fuelled him and he's become a bit of a jack of all trades when it comes to design. In an industry with so much happening, it can be hard to figure out which path is the right one and this week's chat shows you don't have to decide on everything right away. Things will change and opportunities will come up, you just have to roll with it and see where it takes you.

We round out our 'Women in Design' season with one of the most iconic figures in the Australian interiors and publishing world. The one and only Karen McCartney joins us on the season finale to talk about her illustrious career in magazines, from being the founding editor of Inside Out, to writing seven incredible books on architecture, interiors and design. Although she admits she's not one to dwell in the past, we take a trip down memory lane and find out what led her to becoming one of the most legendary people in the industry. We pick her mind on what makes the mid-century, architecturally designed home so iconic in Australia, the processes of writing, shooting and designing a book and what it's like in the role of an editor and what it's like on the other side. There's a reason Karen McCartney is a name that's been popping up from other guests repeatedly on this podcast ever since Season One, she's an incredible positive force and influence to so many and we hope some of her wisdom imparts onto you too.

We're all about a side hustle here at House of Style and this week's guest turned her side hustle into a staple in every designer's bedroom.
