designer brian hoy

There's no doubting it. Australian interior design has come a long way. When you look at these images, showcasing the work of Brian Hoy, there's a keen sense of luxury, grandeur and sophistication - synonyms that might not normally spring to mind when talking about local talent. Brian's work belongs to the same school of design as his friend, Greg Natale. These men aren't afraid of a little baroque in their interiors. Hurray for that.
