Jarrett & Co. 'Insider series'  talks with some of Sydneys most influential people. 

Jarrett & Co. INSIDER SERIES 5




Can you tell us about your Architectural path? 

I started Studiojos to create multi-disciplinary design practice with an expertise and focus on creating bespoke luxury one of a kind projects internationally. With many years spent within the design industry I have formed a collaborative approach and focus on cohesive timeless design. I have ensured the studio is grounded by a rigour of simplicity and modest character. The growth that Studiojos has developed over the years has seen the design studio merge a strong sense of scale, form and material with an eclectic and unique story, brought to life from myself and the curated team. 



When it comes to choosing stone, which is your favourite?  

The immense knowledge base of my team and I, invites individual interests for each project which creates adaptability and flexibility matched with new-age thinking and ideas. This allows us to have a vase range of preferred stones we like to specify for each project. There is not one stone that we select more than others, as each project has a different story we like to tell through materiality.   



Design is an extension of who we are, it’s very personal. What advice do you give your clients when choosing a piece? 

Design is a very deep and personal collection of ideas and thoughts. It can be very difficult at times for people to visualise a space with items they may love individually but cannot grasp what they would all look like collectively. Advice we usually give clients is to go with your gut and try and have samples/ imagery of the products within your everyday environment to further understand if you could live with the selection long term or if it’s just a something you loved in the moment. 



Is there a career highlight that has pushed your work to another level? 

A career highlight I would have, would be working with some of the world’s most exclusive artisans and developers to create luxury turn-key residences for the some of the most exclusive addresses globally. This has pushed my design studio into a world of new creativity and unique design ideas. 




What makes a house a home to you? 

At times, it can be challenging to not just have a house, but to have a home. However, Studiojos offers a dedicated focus on a few exclusive projects each year which allows our understated boutique studio to create finely detailed spaces built to outlast changing fashions and be calming sanctuaries for our discerning clients. These are all elements that can impact the way our clients live but ultimately allow them to feel like we have created a luxury residence they call home.  



Your favourite designer? 

My favourite designer would have to be Simon Porte Jacquemus. Simon started his fashion label at the same age I created my design studio which has inspired me personally and professionally. Within seven years he has successfully created one the of the world’s biggest fashion labels which doubles its revenue each year. The brand has seen celebrities like Rihanna, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian (just to name a few) wear their pieces to major global events. Just like Jacquemus has inspired me. I would love to have a similar impact on young professionals to kick start their careers within the design industry.




Jarrett & Co. INSIDER SERIES 4



Where did your passion for design come from?  

An early age!  When I was 12, my parents popped out for dinner and when they returned, I had moved out all my furniture, ripped up my carpet, pulled all the nails out and reconfigured my room.  My Aunt was a very prominent Interior Designer in the 60's in Spain, so it seems to be in my blood! 



Your biggest design influences? 

Being Spanish, I'd have to say Gaudi!  His use of organic shapes, unusual form and raw textures have been a big influence in my design work.




When it comes to choosing stone, which is your favourite? 

100% Limestone for its durability, organic look and being a sustainable product.  Otherwise I also love natural un-honed travertine...its imperfections and range of colours are extensive.  




Design is an extension of who we are, it’s very personal. What advice do you give your clients when choosing a piece?

Choose one hero/classic piece for your room and use that as your inspiration for the design of what is to go around it.  

Try and use sustainable, authentic design pieces so that they don't end up in landfill a year later!




Is there a career highlight that has pushed your work to another level? 

Each project I take on is a highlight, though initial recognition of my work came from working on a Group of Safari lodges in Africa....word quickly spread and now we consult globally and design and manufacture Interior decor for some of the most influential people and also just the person next door....all treated equally!




What makes a house a home to you?

A calming aesthetic, warmth and lots of candles




Jarrett & Co. INSIDER SERIES 3



Kent Based interior designer Sophia Fanciulli, talks to Jarrett & Co. about her journey of interiors in London. 


Can you tell us about your interior path? 

My path into interior design started recently during the pandemic as I turned to social media to document the design process behind my own home renovation. The pandemic was a real time for reflection and made me realise how important it is to give your time to what really matters in your life, aside from family and friend my greatest passion was very clearly interiors and it was that time away from my 9-5 job that made me realise that now's as good a time as any to make that career change and take that leap into the world of interiors. 



When it comes to choosing stone, which is your favorite?  

Such a hard question, I could name so many that I love for different reasons but if I had to pick one I would say Travertine, I love the warmth and appearance of texture it gives. A stone that goes with all colour schemes and almost all design styles. 



Design is an extension of who we are, it’s very personal. What advice do you give your clients when choosing a piece? 

Firstly I would say invest in quality and a piece that will travel through the decades with you, a timeless design that speaks to you. I always say find a favourite piece of clothing in your wardrobe, as what you like to wear is most likely what will feel right for you in your interiors choices too.



What makes a house a home to you? 

Creating a space that you miss when you aren’t there. A house is just the shell in which gives us shelter, a home is somewhere that you emotionally feel you are meant to be, a place that is functional to your needs and filled with all your favourite things around you.



Your favorite designer? 

Kelly Wearstler - Her incredible use of colour, texture and form really pushes the boundaries in design but always gives a space so many layers to enjoy and admire. Every Kelly Wearstler design tells a story that you can get lost in for hours.



Finally, is there a project that has really stood out in terms of flexing your design know-how? 

I would have to say my own home - we have been renovating it for the past 3 years and during the project I have learnt so much about the full design process from designing the build to all the finishing touches and smaller details - this project has given me the opportunity to define my own style and take my time to carefully source special pieces for my home that represent me and my vibe.

Can you tell us about your love for design? 



Jarrett & Co. INSIDER SERIES 1



Chloe Matters has experience working nationally & internationally, with accolades that include multiple design awards for her work



Can you tell us about your Design path? 

Have been in the design industry for around 11 years now and have been lucky to work internationally and nationally across a vast range of projects from hospitality, commercial to residential and even boats. Right now my business has been refined to a fairly distinct aesthetic, where I enjoy working with like minded people who share this aesthetic. 

 When it comes to choosing stone, which is your favourite?  

I love anything that has organic qualities and I’m really into stones with a softness, like ocean blue travertine and limestones but it’s also hard to go past Arabescato.



Design is an extension of who we are, it’s very personal. What advice do you give your clients when choosing a piece? 

Really delve deep into what is visually pleasing to you, we can piece together a design from a basic brief but if you truly understand what makes you tick it really gives power to a project. 



Is there a career highlight that has pushed your work to another level? 

There are honestly so many! I think winning “best bar design” at world interior awards and “best retail space” at not only the world interiors awards but also Australian Interior design awards (ironically the retail space was 90% Viola back before viola became a trend) was a huge moment for me. It really validated my inner aesthetic. 



What makes a house a home to you? 

A space that creates an emotional response.
