Lauren Oneiele recently joined WMK as Senior Interior Designer so we asked her some quick questions to get to know her better...
One aspect of design most important to you?
Having a strong concept is really important, which then leads on to having a strong, clear design
Which design magazine do you read on a daily/weekly basis and why?
Wallpaper for images, Domus for cool ideas, Indesign for the articles. Also there are some great blogs that I’m addicted to – Design Milk, Domus Web, Design Sponge
Most memorable moment in your career so far?
Every project has memorable moments, and it’s always inspirational and a proud moment to see any design built on site. One stand out for me was travelling to India to design hotels over there. A completely different client experience, and a completely different level of design and detail within the design from anything I had ever experienced.
Top three must-check-out places in Sydney?
All restaurants – Atavola, Bootleg, Spice Temple
Favourite city you’ve lived in so far? Why?
London – exciting, amazing, inspirational
Current must-have accessory?
Anya Hindmarch - anything
What are your passions outside Interior Design?
Good food, fine wine, shopping and spending time with my husband and our dog Poppy
