Sometimes unlikely combinations really work – pear and parmesan, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, and now, a California Bungalow and rammed earth building!
This clever and considered residence designed by Steffen Welsch Architects in Brunswick East is home for Raja Rengasamy, Ruth Halls and son Nikhil (2), who love their earthy, contemporary reimagined home.
This mid-century marvel in Caulfield North is brought to life with the exacting eye and curious collections of Victoria McKenzie. The celebrated set decorator and art director has brought her expertise of working on films (including The Lord of the Rings!) to this vibrant, treasure trove of a home.
Victoria shares her tropical-inspired, handcrafted paradise with her two ‘fur babies’, Bengal cats Daphne and Fergus.
Can you believe that this stunning home is located on the site of an old pig feeding shed?! Located on the river leading to the coastal town of Brunswick Heads, this expansive property is home Kimberly and Stephen Eakin, the owners of boutique hotel The Atlantic Byron Bay.
Kimberly and Stephen have brought their keen eye for relaxed luxury to their own property, which they share with their sons Noa, Hunter and Arlo.
As a celebrated and much loved interior designer, organiser of Como by Design, and founder of Nine Muses Textiles, Tigger Hall is practically Melbourne design royalty. She brings her many years of expertise to her own home, which is infused with layers of family history, family art, and treasures from travels.
Tigger shares her Prahran East home with daughter Beatrice Lewis (a musician who also travels the world with her band Haiku Hands) and their cocker spaniel, Max.
The suburb of Dandenong, around 30km South East of Melbourne isn’t one that often jumps up in the ‘hottest properties’ lists online. But for PR guru Jade Roberts of raraPR, the location offered a dreamy mid-century home that aligned with her budget and wish-list. A good lesson in trawling online to find hidden gems!
Jade shares this renovated home with husband Wes and their three daughters Edith (7), Rose (5) and Mae (3), and two cockerbull dogs Bobby and Disco.
Emma Abrahams, founder and creative director of Heart of Bone, is a woman with a distinct sense of style. So, it stands to reason that her home would have equal flair!
We take a tour through the renovated 1970’s Studley Park house that Emma shares with husband Justin (co-founder and director of Pedla), their two kids aged 6 and 12, Ghost the black German shepherd and Shadow the black rescue cat. Despite Emma’s style credentials, she lost the battle with Justin to fit out the home in an all black palette – instead Justin triumphed with his preferred bright, white walls. A win for everyone, we think!
Our eternally chic stylist Annie Portelli came back from this photo shoot completely buzzing about the St Kilda home of Barb Hyman and her family. Annie (whose own apartment is one of our most popular home tours!) enthused ‘I was as impressed as I was envious. This is the DREAM home!’
Barb’s home has undergone some serious renovations since the family moved in 2013 – transforming a once derelict, grand mansion into a chic, pared back, yet richly layered family home. She shares this sprawling terrace with her three kids, her partner, and his dog named Thai.
When our photographer and stylist went to document doula Sunni Hart’s Eltham home, they were immediately welcomed by six year old Fox, who confidently took them on a tour of his room, introduced them to his pet fish, and the balcony where he feeds the parrots.
While Fox’s guided explanation is for visitors only, today we share Sunni’s tour of this dreamy gum-tree surrounded rental that she shares with partner Pete Baxter, and kids Fox (6) and Dizzy (8 months).
