A home isn’t just about the home, it’s also about the people inside, writes Alyssa Hock.
“The whole idea of being home has always been an incredibly meaningful concept,” she says.
Hock’s husband, James, is a designer at Happy Island Designs, and they have two children, Emma and Lily. “
A home is a place you can just be, a place that you can be yourself, and be the best you can possibly be.”

“We have to go through a lot of challenges, so it’s been a constant struggle, but we’re getting there,” he says.
Alyssalas design inspiration: “We had a house, we got married, we have kids.
So it’s a very real feeling.”
He says he has been asked to design for the homes of celebrities like Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
“That’s always been my dream job,” he laughs.
“I’m very lucky.
It’s not easy.”
Hocks designs in Melbourne and Sydney.
When Hock was a teenager, she moved to Australia from England and fell in love with Sydney’s cityscape.
“You just love it.
You want to live there forever.
Sydney is a great city and it’s just such a great place to live.
I think it’s so beautiful, and you just want to stay.”
Hocking says she’s inspired by the beauty and the tranquility of Sydney, which is one of the country’s best-known cities.
“There are a lot more options for the city, and I just love that,” she said.
Alyssah Hock says Sydney has a lot to offer in terms of architecture and design. “
If I was a little bit older, I’d love to have the opportunity to visit a few of the buildings.”
Alyssah Hock says Sydney has a lot to offer in terms of architecture and design.
“Its just a beautiful city, so we wanted to make sure we were really respectful of the history of the city and what it’s built upon, and what the history means to the city,” she explained.
Hock says she loves Sydney’s history.
“I think Sydney is really unique in terms that we don’t have a big city like London or New York, and there’s a lot that’s not quite in that space, so the city really shines,” she explains.
“And I think people appreciate the beauty of that.”
She says she likes to explore the city with her family, especially when she’s away.
Alyssa says she always wants to get back to her family home, but she’s excited to be in Melbourne.
