Home Stories: Regina Andracchio

Many of us love Canberra for its ‘bush capital’ status. But for some of us, the abundance of open plains and nature reserves are just not enough to fulfil our nature fix—so we decide to move just outside the border for the ultimate country life. Regina, her husband Scott and cat Ernesto have done exactly […]

Home Stories: Laurence Kain

A few hours before heading to Laurence’s place, I got a message reading, “You know my house is pretty basic, right? I just don’t want you to be disappointed. There will be beer of course.” I responded by explaining this HerCanberra feature is just as much about him as it is his house—and then I […]

Home Stories: Sasa Sestic

It’s always inspiring to see how our heritage influences our home décor—not just for one generation, but also for those that follow. Walking into Sasa Sestic’s home in Weston, I was immediately taken back to my childhood memories of visiting my parents’ friends, many of whom were from an eastern European background. There is a […]

Home Stories: Kelly Tunney

Sometimes, being a third wheel is not such a bad thing. You see, typically, our Home Stories photographer has no input into who we visit (I make those decisions, being the very important one and all of that). So, it was pretty cool to discover that our photographer Bel is quite a fan of Kelly […]

Home Stories: Taylor Pitsilos

I have a lot of friends who are into ‘vintage’, but personally, I find it hard to clear through the clutter and define what it actually is. Some like finding pieces in garage sales that look like they were salvaged from the Titanic, some get into the popular Rockabilly trend and others inherit Grandma’s old […]

Home Stories: Marcellus Heleta

I love visiting hospitality people. Marcellus (aka Mars) greeted us with a firm handshake at the front door—and two seconds later, our photographer, Cass, and I were ushered to a kitchen bench adorned with all sorts of little pots, a bottle of milk, an assortment of spices, and pineapple-shaped glassware which looked as though it […]

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 […]
