Swedish summer in Sydney: Naomi and Frag Woodall’s apartment reno

When my dear friends Frag and Naomi Woodall purchased a 1940’s 2 bedroom apartment in a quiet leafy street of Sydney’s east, they told us all they ‘had plans to make a few changes’. Within about six months after their purchase of the property, the space was completely transformed from a pokey, tired little pad to a bright, beautiful home with flowing living spaces with charming fixtures and thoroughly thought-through design details. This incredible residential DIY reno was developed around the idea of it being a contemporary rendition of a ‘swedish summer cabin’. The identification of the Scandinavian influences isn’t all that essential; the way this creative and hardworking team have breathed new life into their home is quite outstanding. 

Hey! I did that!

Always a bit of a proud moment when one is thumbing through a magazine at the supermarket, and one spots an advertisement designed by oneself. Especially satisfying when one notices that the paper stock for this page is a smooth uncoated, different to the other shiny thin pages of the publication.

Harts Yard

Harts Yard is an inner city gem run by husband/wife team Gregory Llewellyn and Naomi Hart. Ex New Yorkers who now call Sydney home, share their seasonal “nose to tail, leaf to root” cooking with any of us lucky enough to book a table. The food loosely references American diner fare with some interesting veggie options such as the salad of shaved raw mushroom and artichoke interleaved with celery hart and parmesan crisps. If you make it through the mains try the peanut butter and banana sundae served with pretzel ice cream, banana doughnut and salted fudge. It won’t disappoint.
