A self-described ‘maximalist’, Sarah Jane’s love of ‘more is more’ carries through her work as an award winning creative, through to the plush colourful home she shares with husband Tristan and son Phoenix. Having earned her stripes at some of Sydney and London’s leading creative agencies working on projects for brands including Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, Vogue, Swarovski, Lady Gaga, Emirates and ECOYA, she is now the Founder and Creative Director of design studio, Tiger Bowie.
Brass everything – I love how the gold brings such warmth within the home. My Tom Dixon Brass Form Tea Set is a statement piece on the bookcase.
My partner also works in the Arts so we have a lot of interesting and diverse artwork on the walls.
What’s your go-to ECOYA fragrance?
I also entertain a lot over the warmer months in my garden, so the Citronella & Lemongrass Outdoor Candle is perfect!
I’ve recently discovered the best ever sunscreen from Ultra Violette which is a game changer. This Australian-made product is actually a ‘Skinscreen’ and their hero product ‘Queen Screen’ is life changing. It’s so light weight, just like applying a Serum, and it smells subtly of Roses. I also couldn’t live without ECOYA’s new rinse free hand wash in Sweet Pea & Jasmine. It’s a super handy size and easy to throw in my handbag – I take it everywhere!
Whether it be painted walls or soft furnishings, adding colour can really be essential to brightening up a space. It can even be as simple as introducing an interesting and colourful pattern, such as a Pendleton wool blanket or hanging a beautiful Japanese silk Kimono on your bedroom door. Adding simple and classic items such as these can add a lot of personality and a good talking point within the room.
I love a good statement piece but I’m always careful to pick something I think will buck trends and have longevity. Good mood lighting is also essential, whether it be with lamps or candlelit.
What would be your one dream interior item (if money was no object)?
I will forever be lusting after a beautiful vintage Hollywood Regency style 1970’s brass palm floor lamp by Maison Jansen.
