I have long been a fans of Sydney based studio Blacklist
Nathan and Jaynie are really nice people and I love their simple, graphic artworks along with their uplifting message . Its hard to open a decorating magazine or watch a renovating show with out spotting something from their work. It seems being loved up is “totally in fashion”

Tell me what you love about Bondi?
I love the Bondi neighbourhood. It has such a great energy and has really developed into a food destination. I have all my Darlinghurst neighbours [A Tavola, Messina etc] and other favourites like Maurice Terzini’s restaurants and Sensory Lab coffee.
Twenty-one years ago, Darlinghurst was my local, now Bondi is. Feels only natural to have a place around the corner from home. It’s quintessentially Sydney. I love its mix of roughed up urban beach glamour and down to earth local vibe. What could be more Sydney? A Bronte to Bondi ocean walk, a dip in the ocean and then breakfast at bills. Plus my kids are excited that our neighbour is Messina!
Tell us about the interior of the new Bondi space? /What was the direction /brief given to Meacham Nockles McQualter ?
I wanted it to feel like your dream beach house – pictures hanging on the wall, concrete floors, ratton chairs etc. I wanted it to feel comfortable and light. Meacham Nockles McQualter have again realised the vision at Bills in Bondi by creating a classy, unpretentious interior that is light, spacious and compliments the relaxed modern menu.
