The costume designer and stylist showed Rhys Prka some of her favourite things.
Babe Wilson Film Poster
I created a simple film poster in the last month of my pregnancy. It was a light-hearted and fun way to celebrate our growing filmmaking family. It is now displayed in Sonny’s bedroom.
West German Pottery
I love the rich ultramarine blue, which is a little more unique, amongst the more common oranges and browns in these collections. The Fat Lava pots also have a great organic texture.
Art by Rhys Wilson
I am constantly inspired by my stepson’s artwork. He has a great use of colour, line and detail.
Le Creuset Pot
I received this from my family for my 30th birthday. I use it almost every day. It allows me to cook and share meals with my friends and family. It also reminds me of my mum, as we share an interest in cooking. I hope to continue our traditional Italian recipes with my own family.
Vintage Silk Cushions
These were a recent purchase from Empire Homewares. I love the design and opulence of printed silk. They are a warm and bold addition to our room.
This was a memento from film Top Knot Detective in 2016. I’ve continued to collaborate with writer/director team Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce and producer Lauren Brunswick. I was fortunate enough to work again with them more recently on Koko: A Red Dog Story, which was released theatrically in late 2019.
I love the tactile and visual nature of books. My book collection includes themes of fashion, film, photography, costume, textiles, pop culture, autobiographies, fiction and astrology. It now includes children’s books for my son. I treasure reading to him daily.
