Little Bowerbird Interiors was started in 2009. Owner and principal designer Joc Ridgway graduated with a B.A. in Interior Design in 1995 and has since lead a life of creative pursuit. She owned concept store Green Grass Home & Body, a much loved homewares, furniture and accessories store and espresso bar in Bulimba, Brisbane for 15 years. She became known for her love of colour, textiles and eclectic style.
In 2017 Joc sold Green Grass to focus solely on her interior design work and art practice. She specialises in residential interiors but has also worked on office and cafe design. Her passion is to help clients create spaces that inspire them to live the life they dream of, with a focus on family, entertaining and interpersonal connections. She has a small team of suppliers, trades and craftsmen that assist in creating beautiful, practical living spaces.
Joc's artwork is inspired by colour from nature, proportion, scale and layering plus the beautiful symmetry of positive and negative space. She is deeply influenced by the simplicity of Japanese design and the use of repeating pattern and layering of materials is a reflection of her interiors work. She uses acrylic, water colour, Japanese gouache, oil stick, pastel, collage and ink on archival cotton paper or canvas.
