Tessa James is one of those people who is almost impossible to sum up in a few words.
She is warm and kind by nature, well-spoken, modest, a creative at her core and with a list of credentials as diverse as it is impressive. With a career that started in television, on one of Australia's most iconic shows, and now with a family interior design business, her experience spans wide.
We admire how Tessa has managed to find a harmony between having beautiful things and knowing that simplicity is often enough. From what we can see, she has adopted that balance throughout her life too — being dedicated to the different roles she plays (literally and figuratively) as a mother and in her multifaceted career; everything carried out with an enviable amount of grace.
We visited Tessa in Melbourne to talk about the special things in her everyday.
