If you’ve occasionally picked up a lifestyle magazine over the past 15 years then the chances are at some point you’ve seen the work of Jason Grant.

The interior stylist and author’s work has appeared in numerous Australian and International titles over the years, including Inside Out, Belle, and Vogue Living, and he has worked with some of the country’s biggest fashion and retail brands.

Now, the beach-loving designer has come to the Shire to ply his trade, and will be joining The Echo as a guest columnist in our Home and Garden section.

‘I’ve been visiting Byron Bay for many years and I guess now I’m an official local,’ Mr Grant told The Echo last week.

‘I came up to shoot some stuff for my second book, liked it and decided I wanted to move up here and so I did. It was just a case of “Why not?”.

The former Bondi resident generally does interior design styling for magazine and advertising shoots, but also helps to decorate people’s homes.

‘It’s something I’ve been doing for quite some time now – encouraging people to find their own style, their unique journey, and I guess I’d like to inspire people to have a go,’ he says.

This type of encouragement with be a key theme in his regular contributions for The Echo.

‘It’s about demystifying – giving people the confidence to think about their home and the kind of environment they’re creating in their own space,’ he says.

‘A lot of people find it hard to make decisions about their home and so I’m hoping to guide people through that process a bit and to give them some good ideas.’

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
