About Us

Hello. House of Six is a wallpaper and textile studio based in Sydney, Australia. 

I am a textile lover at heart and I grew up in Brazil amongst six siblings (and true story, over sixty cousins!) so our household was always so energetic and crazy busy. From an early age I was always curious about textiles, textures and colours as well as exploring the artistic world.  It was only natural that one day my dream job would make sense, a textile studio - House of Six - where I would be able to freely create and experiment with my hands.  

After a Bachelor Degree in Visual Communication, and some pretty cool jobs, I decided to pack my bags 1998 to explore the world. It was in London that I met David, my Queenslander husband (insert big love heart here!) and after many adventures together we relocated to Australia in 2000. 

We decided to call Sydney home and a new chapter of my career started after I enrolled at the East Sydney Fashion Design Studio in the pursuit of new creative skills. As a design student I always focused my interest on textiles and I was awarded for innovation at the“Mercedes Benz Start Up” and invited to exhibit my work at the Power House Museum. 

My textile career has evolved along the years and I currently run a handwoven textiles studio where I create small collections of blankets, throws, tableware and cushions. I love creating bespoke products with sustainability as a focus so we can offer high quality and unique textiles. 

Our little nomad family lives in Bondi with our we have two much loved children, Gabrielle and Sebastian, and Brasil will always be our second home.
