Style: traditional, earthy, spiritual, with an industrial edge
Hometown: Sydney, New South Wales
Single and sexy Jason Sullivan is the only homeMADE designer with no formal training in interior design. But with nearly 20 years' experience as an international model, and having lived in Paris, London, Milan, New York, Rome and Los Angeles, he has been exposed to some of the most stylish design the world has to offer.
Over the years his passion for design has overtaken his desire to hit the catwalk and while he has only been working as an interior designer part-time for one year this is his new vocation and he is determined to give homeMADE his best shot.
"I knew I needed a career change when I started turning up for modelling jobs and I'd be asked by the receptionist if I was the photographer," he said. "When I heard about Homemade I had to apply. I thought it would be a great way to show my creativity or lack of, thus either jump-starting or miserably ending my already short career in interior design."
As a model, Jason has appeared in Real Living magazine but he plans to make his houses feature in magazines and soon. "I'll do what it takes to win. Blood, sweat or tears. I'm 37 so I've got to get it happening quickly."
He describes his style as traditional, earthy and a little bit spiritual. "Traditional is the opposite of modern. It's comfy. I believe the home should be the sanctuary. I don't like modern. It's stark and not homely. I like my clients to be comfortable."
