1.What’s the room and who uses it?
Bedroom. I use it.
2. What do you do for a crust?
Head Fashion Designer at Gun Shy. My own business.
3. What goes on in the room?
Lounging on my ridiculously fabulous Franco Cozzo black bedroom suite dreaming of being some dirty Versace clad Italian mistress with some hot Italian OTT lover. There’s A LOT of fantasy dreaming going on in my bedroom. Reality is quite far away. Reality is that I am in my polka dot pj’s, woollen socks and leopard dressing gown eating pate, blue cheese and chocolate all at once while watching Netflix. Ignoring the never ending sound of the Blyth St traffic and general Brunswick hoohaa; instead imaging outside my shit venetian blinds is Cinque Terre, Italy. My imagination is GREAT!!!! A lot of staring at my clothes wondering what outfit I will wear next and playing with the cat also takes up A LOT OF TIME.
4. Favourite piece in the room and why?
My Franco Cozzo suite and the gold Lamps
5. Anything on your wish list that you would love to add to the space?
It’s a case of loving the stuff more than the space. My ridiculous fabulous bedroom suite needs space to breath, relax and be admired. I would love for the room to be a lavish Trump style home with some more rugs and large leopard statues. Trump is an absolute dick but you gotta give it to the man, he has style. I freakin love his apartment and everything in it. My kinda home.
6. Describe the room in three words.
Franco Cozzo!!!! Shit!!!!
7. Why do you love this room?
Two words – Franco Cozzo. I drooled over these bedroom suites my whole life. Hands pressed against the windows of the Sydney Rd store admiring the crazy fabulous pieces squished into this shit showroom. Looked up and dreamed every time we drove past the Footscray showroom. The shady history of Franco only makes it more desirable. The ads burnt into my subconscious. I’ve wanted this suite my whole life. So when I finally had some spare mula last year I took the freakin plunge and have never looked back. When home, I spread out and roll around on it, looking in all the mirrors, making faces, admiring the gold. It’s definitely a tight fit…..but I love it. It is home among the chaos of life. Franco and all my crazy clothes all squished in together like sardines. It’s the best. Like being in a teeny weeny fabulous womb. My fabulous safe space.
8. What’s one lovely memory you have whilst being in the room?
Franco Cozzo following me on Instagram. Lying on my Franco, looking at a picture of me on my Franco and seeing for the first time that Franco has liked my pic on Insta. Doesn’t get much better than that mate!
