A Slow And Thoughtful Garden Designed With Functionality In Mind

This suburban family garden in Hunters Hill has been tended to by the same owners since 2004, whose stewardship oversaw planting of an excellent foundation palette over the last decade. These loving efforts of the amateur gardeners have now been built upon by landscape architect Hugh Burnett.

A Mountain-Top Holiday Spot That Floats Above The Clouds

This Converted Warehouse Apartment Is The Dream Melbourne Rental!

There aren’t many Melburnians who’ve rented the same inner-city property for eight years, but when your place is this good… you do everything you can to hold onto it!

Writer and founder of beauty brand Fluff, Erika Geraerts, is the proud long-term renter of this converted warehouse in Collingwood. The apartment is part of the old Foy & Gibson complex – a circa 1887 factory that provided goods to the Foy & Gibson department stores, and employed over 2000 people at its peak.

Today it’s a close-knit residential community, and one of the few true ‘New York-style’ warehouse conversions in town. Take a look inside!

A Day In The Life of ‘Hamilton’ Star, Chloé Zuel

People say that even if you don’t recognise a famous face when you pass one in the street, they still have a superstar quality about them that turns your head. ‘They must be a celebrity,’ we mutter under our breaths, and scorn the lack of reverse-Google Image search in the real world.

The innate starpower of these born performers gives them an aura, a glow, a whiff of godly magnetism. If you don’t believe me, scroll on through these photos of actor, Chloé Zuel, who plays Eliza Hamilton (the lead female role!) in Australia’s production of Hamilton.

Despite this seemingly inexhaustible energy that comes with a performer’s confidence, stage work is a gruelling, exhausting and nerve-wracking job. But it’s also an exhilarating one, particularly when it’s in a musical at the forefront of a pop culture reckoning. When it debuted on Broadway in 2015, Hamilton swept up a record 16 nominations at the Tony Awards, winning 11 of them – plus a Pulitzer Prize for Drama for its writer and star, Lin Manuel Miranda. Its world domination has continued steadily, with the production landing on Sydney’s sunny shores last year and now making it’s way to Melbourne in the coming months.

Amongst this heady mix of glamour and the grit, we followed Chloé around for a day in her hardworking shoes to see just what it’s like behind the scenes of the world’s most famous musical. Between morning meditation at her home in Clovelly to battling nerves and navigating upside-down days (she has dinner at 5pm and starts work after!) – we talked self-doubt under the spotlight, making musicals cool again, and, of course, work!
