“I think you will find the following pages very THERAPEUTIC and inspire your DREAMS for 2021.” And exhale! It’s finally time to breathe, and I hope by the time you are reading this that you have had time to catch up with your loved ones, especially those you haven’t seen all year. You may have missed births, weddings, family celebrations or other milestones, but if your nearest and dearest are here in Australia, you will hopefully have the chance to get together and take a break at least for a few days in the new year. And boy, do we need this new year! I don’t know about you, but my shoulders have been sitting higher than my ears since March 2020. I think we’ve all been holding onto a giant ball…

your h&g

A HARMONIOUS HOME I had long yearned to introduce antiques into our home, but struggled to persuade my partner, who favours modern designs. Fortunately, your feature on Sally Beresford saved us from marriage counselling! Sally’s home (Cultivated & Curated, November) showed us that old and new can cohabit very happily. The antiques got a tick of approval and Sally has become a style icon in our household. We are having a great time searching online and in stores for our first bygone treasure! Marcus Blinco, Edgewater, WA ALWAYS IN FAVOUR I’m a long-time subscriber to H&G and I have to say, the November issue was a joy to behold. The featured homes, both modern and classic homes, were so beautifully styled. The gardening section – always a favourite – was wonderfully complemented by the…

From the moment Eugenie Kelly stepped into this home, she had a good feeling about it. There were sweet leadlight windows at the front door, open fires crackling downstairs, and high ceilings that made every room feel elegant and generous. It needed work – the salmon-coloured walls and velvet curtains would definitely have to go – but there was a sense of comfort and nostalgia about the place that felt right. It was 2006 and Eugenie and her husband Richard O’Neill were home hunting. They had just welcomed their second daughter into the world and were suddenly feeling the squeeze of their two-bedroom inner-Sydney terrace. They were on the lookout for a more spacious family home and were focusing their search on the city’s Lower North Shore. This home, built circa…

FIRST ADULT HOME? A two-bedroom terrace in Sydney’s Paddington. BUCKET-LIST DESTINATION? Puglia (5). I almost got my wish: I was invited to attend Dior’s Cruise 2021 show at the Piazza del Duomo in Lecce last May. But then Covid-19 put a halt to that. At least I got to watch the livestream. Sigh. BEST MEAL EVER? For a fancy meal, it’s a toss-up between Beige Alain Ducasse Tokyo (6), which sits atop the flagship Chanel store in Ginza, and Joel Robuchon’s restaurant in the Hotel Metropole in Monte Carlo (3). That said, my perfect breakfast is from Nosh in Cremorne: an extra-shot skim latte and cinnamon scroll. DREAM CAR? A Land Rover Defender (6) for when I (eventually!) move to Northern NSW. Or anything comfartable that can tow a horse float. FAVOURITE ARTISTS? I…
