editor’s letter

“Now more than ever we CRAVE not just beauty but INSULATION from an uncertain world.” I love an obstacle! Restrictions can be galvanising in a way, and knowing that the H&G team, plus many of our readers and design peers, have been living through lockdown is a great motivator to keep striving to present an inspiring magazine that’s alive with the very best houses and gardens in Australia. Great projects are happening all around the country, and the talents of Australian interior designers and architects are unique and seemingly limitless. In this issue, we showcase our 2021 Top 50 Rooms. Due to the old pandemic disruptor, we will reveal the finalists in our December issue and the winner in our January issue. Can you imagine how tricky it is judging entries from…

My partner and I have just moved from a tiny rented apartment into our first home in a small town an hour south of the CBD. Since she couldn’t visit in person, my beautiful sister sent me a gift pack in the mail – a collection of thoughtful goodies including fruity tea, aromatic room spray, fair-trade chocolate, linen tea towels and the latest issue of H&G. We’re desperate to start renovating our 1980s red-brick home and H&G is just the sprinkle of motivation and magic that I needed. With so many fresh ideas, insightful stories and stunning photography within the magazine I’m feeling incredibly inspired.

In 2001, then-restaurateur Julie Manfredi Hughes spent considerable time and effort hunting for a new family home. “My partner Larry has two sons and I have a daughter, Isabella, so we were looking for a house we could live in as a blended family,” she says. The new home had big shoes to fill: Julie’s previous property was designed for her and her former husband, acclaimed chef Stefano Manfredi, by their good friend, renowned architect, Luigi Rosselli. “All the homes in our search area were just too small,” says Julie. But she had a lightbulb moment while visiting a friend. “My friend lives in the area we like but on a major road and I was struck by how big and rambling the properties were,” she says. “Soon after, I happened…
