With over 20 years experience in the design field, Brett Mickan has vast and style-informing experience across the multifaceted aspects of design including film, theatre, exhibitions, yacht interiors, commercial and residential interiors.
Known for his use of colour, and signature infusion of beautiful vintage finds, no two projects are the same. It brings Brett the greatest pleasure to marry contemporary families with period architecture in a way that is aesthetically beautiful, liveable, functional and original.
Practicing design in Sydney until 1998, Brett then moved to the United States, where he became the Senior Designer for a Miami based firm – where his work won several awards, including two distinctions by the International Interior Design Association, IIDA, for ‘Best Residential Design’.
Since returning to Australia, he has received multiple awards, including “Best Residential” 6 times as well as “2019 Best Small Design Studio” in the Sydney Design Awards. He has been a finalist in the DULUX Colour Awards 4 times and included in “House & Garden Top 50 Rooms” 9 times, as well as Best Kitchen 2018. Brett has a strong affinity for fine art in his interiors and was a member of the Design Council for Art Edit magazine for 5 years. He has run a Master Class on colour in interiors for both the Mercer Design School and The Design Coach. He has judged Reece’s “I Love My Bathroom” competition and he twice judged the category of “Best in Decoration” for the DIA’s “Graduate of the Year Awards”.
