Home Stories: Pat Rose

I’ve known Pat for over 10 years, but always in an enigmatic way. He has popped up in my life at different bars, design-related events, fashion things and music gigs—but still, I could never articulate what he actually did. I always assumed that he was either a massive socialite type or a man with wide-ranging […]

Home Stories: Charlie and Sandie

For years I’ve been driving past a home in Turner, and every single time it has caught my attention. The ever-changing display of objects in the yard made it look like a theme park of fun: red phone boxes, life-sized LEGO men, kinetic sculptures, disco balls hanging from trees, old red school buses, an array […]

Home Stories: Nick Georgalis

Do you ever wonder which foods top chefs grab from the fridge at home for a midnight snack? Or if race car drivers are safer than all Volvo and Saab drivers put together once they are on normal roads? Or, perhaps, what a man who builds for a living does to his own home? That […]

Home Stories: Janette Wojtaszak

Janette has almost as many professional aliases as I do. I’m sure it’s not because she’s trying to avoid tax, but rather a sign of someone that has fingers in many pies. You may know her as a stylist at Canberra Centre, the designer behind ‘Statement by Janette’ jewellery and accessories, the creative mind behind […]

Home Stories: Larissa Hrstic

From reading this series, you’ve probably picked up that I have an obsession with people who work from home, or whose home is entwined with their work. Before visiting Larissa’s floral studio at her Griffith home, I thought my fascination with self-employed creative types was because I found the idea of everyone going to work […]

Home Stories: Rowan Marsh-Croft

Going over to Rowan’s home in Cook was like visiting a museum of interests; both his and mine. Knowing that he is a graphic designer and DJ, I was expecting a nice cup of tea while we remarked on his latest poster designs and colour-coded collection of records …but no, instead we covered: art exhibitions, […]

Home Stories: Kate Fenning

Sometimes when you first meet a stranger, something clicks and you just get them. Kate’s hugely popular Yorkelee Prints business started on a chance encounter and I found Kate’s styling work on Instagram by fluke, so perhaps this alignment of great coincidences just follows her around. In looking at Kate’s aesthetic, it’s probably not a […]

Home Stories: Kristen Henry

Do you ever wonder how I find people to cover in these Home Stories? Well, once I placed an ad in the local newspaper with a headline reading ‘subjects wanted for intimate home photography’ …but let’s just say that tactic delivered mixed results. Nowadays, I reach out to people I know, have heard of through […]

Home Stories: Andrea Hutchinson

Standing in the doorway of her home in Braddon, Andrea Hutchinson put her hand on her hips. In her Swiss accent, she apologised; “Ash, we may have to do this all again another time, because the home is not really set up, sorry.” You would be surprised of how often I hear this from the […]

Home Stories: Myles Chandler

Well it’s about time I came out the workshop closet …yes, it’s true; I have a thing for bikes. My love doesn’t extend to all bikes though; my loves are those with a more classic or vintage look, which I’ve saved from somewhere, fixed up and now feel as though they’re a part of me. […]
