Neale Whitaker is a man whose life is surrounded by style.
As Australia’s foremost interior design guru, London-born Neale has a wealth of experience gathered from a background in magazine publishing – he was at the helm of stylish titles such as delicious, Belle and Vogue Living.
After many successful renovations on Love It or List It Australia which has swayed homeowners to stay rather than sell, now it’s Neale’s turn.
He recently renovated the kitchen and laundry of his country cottage in Berry, NSW, in which he and partner David Novak-Piper live with their two Weimaraners, Otis and Ollie.
After working with Kinsman Kitchens on Love It or List It Australia, Neale enlisted our help to bring his own kitchen renovation to life.
The vision was for a ‘modern rustic’ style with a layout and design features that reflect the lifestyle he and David enjoy in their rural home – essentially a serene retreat – from which they commute regularly to Sydney.
Neale currently writes a weekly column for News Corp’s Stellar, and on-screen, he’s a long-running judge on Nine’s TV hit The Block, as well as co-hosting the popular series Love It or List It Australia on Foxtel
