At home with Mr Jason Grant


From Bondi to Byron

4 Jan 2020 |  At home with

This month we have a chat with Mr Jason Grant about his move to beautiful Byron Bay and how to live like a local.

You now call Byron Bay home. Tell us about your move

I love living here in Byron. I visited for a long time but have finally made it home. I love the creative community here and I am always inspired by nature so I love being close to where the bush meets the beach.

Tell us about your home

It’s not your typical home… it’s part studio part home. A warehouse where I can live work/play. It’s my creative space and hideaway.

What projects are you working on?

Always busy on projects for clients and my own ( I have a few new things up my sleeve for 2020) and i’ve just completed a new restaurant in Burleigh        (Light Years number 3) so am looking forward to a few more of those projects whilst always extending my own creative skills too.

Favourite fragrance?

Vetiver, rose, gardenia and anything citrusy.

Must do’s for visitors to Byron?

Head to my local favourite Light years for modern asian food and killer cocktails.

Stay at the Atlantic – the best place to stay and you can borrow one of their bikes to get around.

Shop…great things for the home at Nikau, Tigmi, The Beach People, Pampa, Fossil Vintage, Pop and Scott, Habitat Collective, The society in, Hope and May and the Book Room Collective
