‘And it’s not just houses,’ says Wendy Moore. ‘It’s terraces, apartments, even a warehouse.’

Durie is an inspired choice to join the judging panel. Having hosted 52 primetime design shows worldwide, authored 12 best-selling books, spent his career passionately committed to the environment and launched his own design business; Durie Design. Jamie’s evolved into a multi-disciplinary designer, specialising in the areas of architecture, interior design, landscaping, and Jamie’s greatest passion – furniture design. He’s on a mission to bring the outdoors indoors and reconnect people with their homes.

And he couldn’t be more excited to get started on House Rules.

‘Australia, our homes are changing,’ says Jamie. ‘The future is here, on House Rules.’
