Lisa Green WRITER AND EDITOR Green began her career as a newspaper journalist but has spent the past 20 years editing food, fashion and home magazines. “The early years honed my news sense; the latter allowed me to indulge my love of design and encourage more sustainable consumer habits. Crucial!” she says. For this issue Green utilised this garnered experience and expertise to write about the stunning art-filled Sydney home of Boris and Naomi Tosic (page 100).

closing the divide

The answer was ‘no’ whenever cousins Agnes and Rhoda Garrett tried to persuade an architect to take them on as apprentices in London during the 1860s. The reason was, predictably, their gender. An architect friend, John McKean Brydon, eventually agreed to hire them in 1873 on the condition that they would go nowhere near dirty, unladylike building sites. About a year later, the Garretts cofounded A&R Garrett House Decorators, London’s first firm of female interior designers. As well as designing what they called “solid and unpretentious” interiors, in stark contrast to the fussy decor of the day, they published a book, Suggestions for House Decoration in Painting, Woodwork and Furniture, and travelled throughout Britain as star speakers in the fledgling women’s suffrage movement.
