Barry Du Bois
I’ve been designing and building homes for over 30years, as a developer I realised early that and investment in considered design always paid great dividends, that understanding turned to a passion about 20 years ago and I took an opportunity to be mentored by and amazing Italian Interior Architect Maurizio Bruno. From there I was hooked on design which lead to further study of Architecture and Human movement and interaction with the built environment, and more recently sustainable design. I retired in 2005 and spent the next five years dividing my time between Europe and Australia (10 summers) most of my time in Europe was spent on my yacht Bella Sogni Sailing and furthering my Interior Architecture knowledge.
In 2011 reopened my Design Consultancy business and I was asked to Mentor and judge contestants on the Channel Ten renovation show The Renovators.
Since then I’ve been hosting the Home Design and Renovation segment of The Living Room with Amanda, Chris and Miguel. Between that, my practise and my beautiful family I’m a pretty busy boy but I absolutely love every second of it.More about Barry
