Stationer Beck Wadworth of An Organised Life has swapped Sydney for Auckland.
I live in Parnell with my boyfriend, Jason Domancie. We’d been in Sydney for six years and absolutely loved it, but decided to make the move back last year because there really is no place like home.
My interior style is very pared back. I love fresh white walls and wooden floors, and prefer texture and tone to colour. Less is more for me. Because my style is so minimal, it’s those little personal touches that make our house a home. Jason has a great eye when it comes to photography and took some incredible photos with his film camera on our recent trip to Italy and France. One now hangs above the mantel in our lounge.
I love my morning rituals here. I often start by having a coffee on the porch with Jason, or I’ll go for a big walk. I light a candle — usually Jo Malone London or Lumira — and pop on my favourite playlist, which is basically all Fleetwood Mac and Elton John! Then I get stuck into the to-do list in my diary.
My An Organised Life warehouses are in Australia, so given I’m the only one on the ground in New Zealand, working from home makes sense for now. I travel back to Sydney every month, which gives me the best of both worlds work-wise and socially.
