Book: Holiday at Home by Mr Jason Grant
Mr Jason Grant is Mr Stylist Extraordinaire. He’s also Mr Bondi. And his second book, Holiday at Home, is an homage to Australian living. A veritable feast of inspirational ideas on how to give your home a holiday makeover, it’s a fantastic angle for an interiors book.
After all, who doesn’t want to capture that relaxed holiday glow in their own space at home?
Jason has styled for many Australian and international magazines including Inside Out, Belle, House and Garden, Real Living, Vogue Living, Australian Country Style, Elle Decoration and Livingetc. He’s also created a signature collection with Murobond Paints.
Lauren Bamford’s photography beautifully captures Jason’s roving eye for detail and inspiration.
It’s like looking through the eyes of an experienced stylist on a fun road trip, pointing out colour palettes in a vintage caravan awning, finding inspiration in an art deco surf club, and spotting the perfect op shop find at a sleepy coastal beach town.
Accompanied by tips on how to work these pieces and ideas into your home, it’s a cheery book you can dip into time and again.
I love Jason’s trademark style for creating a killer vignette, combining natural elements, found objects, vintage finds and designer pieces. There is nearly always a pop of yellow. He’s rather fond of yellow, which is rather apt, considering this book is all about how to bring holiday sunshine indoors.
