boutiques with attitude, it seems to embody all that’s fabulous about our city. Of course The Lane was once the epicentre of Australia’s rag trade, a strip that hummed to the tune of thousands of sewing machines. Although the rag traders are now long gone, it’s almost as if their ghosts have imbued the street with a fashionable vibe. These days the machines making Aussie fashion hum are mostly in China and Bangladesh, but the legacy the Flinders Lane rag traders created in stamping Melbourne as Australia’s most fashionable city endures. It’s that status we’ll celebrate over the next couple of weeks when Melbourne kicks up its heels for Spring Fashion Week. On the eve of these festivities, it seems fitting to highlight the rare designers who still make fashion in Melbourne. Read about these local fashion heroes in our cover story. ●

VIRGINIA TRIOLI STICKS UP FOR THE TREES

“this impulse to trash has for years bewildered me”

not the first or even the fifth time the trees here have copped it from wanton raiders. But it bewilders me that there is no innate sense of shame or misgiving about destroying something so lovely to stay the hand of the tree-abuser. Have they really been raised to believe that their every little moment of self-indulgence is somehow OK? Is there any guilt at all when they look back at a broken row of trees, at living things killed? Does the laugh die on their lips? The council was pretty good: it came quickly and replaced all the trees, and now we wait anxiously for these plants to grow enough critical mass to make the odd violent intervention just a flesh wound, as the Pythons would have it. Is there a saint you can light a candle to in order to keep young urban trees safe, a St Christopher of the Vernal Green? Let me know – and say a little prayer with me for the long-suffering Melbourne street tree. ● Virginia Trioli is co-host of ABC News Breakfast on ABC1 and ABC News 24, 6-9am weekdays

We live in a rather hot and brutal part of town, so while the green canopy we yearned for would still be years away, the seeds had very literally been planted. But then, returning from work one morning, I noticed that – one after the other – almost all the young trees in my street had been deliberately snapped in half, their young trunks bent and broken, the tree crowns discarded in the gutter. I have long believed there is a special circle of hell reserved for those who wantonly destroy trees. While living in Sydney, I was astonished to see how common tree-poisoning was in some of the most elite harbourside suburbs; anything for a view, even if it meant slowly murdering a Moreton Bay fig of Gothic proportions, many more than 40 years old, all of them beautiful and commanding. An old friend was subjected to the most appalling abuse by her tormenting ex-partner when he snuck on to her country property and, in a jealous and vengeful rage, chainsawed every tree. I’ll never forget the look of unspeakable sorrow and horror at the violence, at the loss. Even at our local park, a morning walk recently revealed a row of young trees had been painstakingly decapitated by some marauding moron. I was, and am, amazed. Now, I’m sure the abused trees in my street

he differences I have had with Helen Garner and her celebrated book, The First Stone, are well catalogued, Stone but despite all, I’ve returned again and again to an observation made by a lawyer in the book about his experience at a university college. Asked what his time there taught him, he answers without hesitation: “A complete contempt for property”. This impulse to trash – so often masculine but frequently feminine, too – has for years bewildered me. I saw it at university myself: a quite manic, unstoppable desire to smash, tear down and ruin whatever you could. Yes, college students seemed to have an almost unquenchable need for destruction, but many others too, and once someone has a skinful that impulse seems to be part of our shared DNA and the impulse rises irresistibly. I recall this because I saw a sad thing the other day. After months of lobbying by our community, the local council agreed to a new landscaping program and planted hopeful little saplings all along the footpath and down the centre of the road.

The benefits of shortening the production cycle far outweigh the cost of sending your designs overseas. “Aesthetically it’s more pleasing to say you’re made in Melbourne.

jane rocca meets three designers who fly the flag for local fashion

I

n a world of fast fashion and made-in-Bangladesh labels, there’s surely something special about the Melbourne designers who are keeping it strictly local. Gone are the days when Flinders Lane buzzed with the whir of thousands of sewing machines as the epicentre of Australia’s rag trade. Easing tariffs and bargain-basement labour costs have lured the lion’s share of Aussie fashion production offshore. But a small clutch of stalwart style-makers have stood their ground, preferring to support local industry and keep a close eye on production. Using Australian yarns where possible and local craftspeople, and with a healthy dose of self-belief, they are proving there is a future in local fashion. On the eve of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, three designers explain why they love local. ● jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au

NEVENKA Rosemary Masic’s Nevenka label might be informed by Eastern vintage fabrics, lace and embroidered cottons, but her business is firmly anchored in Melbourne. The Spring Fashion Week regular, whose label was one of the first Australian brands to be sold on Net-a-Porter, has been committed to local manufacturing since 2009. From her Collingwood studio she employs machinists and cutters to create two collections a year, with a few seasonal drops in between. Now she has introduced a local atelier service. “It’s been so liberating to create my own atelier within the studio,” Rosemary says. “I don’t out source anything. It’s all made in Melbourne.” Rosemary experimented with offshore manufacturing after launching her label in 2006. “I remember being in China and seeing a factory worker scolded over not sewing a Nevenka garment properly. It broke my heart and made me think ‘I can’t do this any more’ – it’s ethically not me at all,” she says. Rosemary works closely with her machinists. “I have more control and I have a better life for doing what I do,” she says. “I’m making money and I am closer to the supply chain. I’m ethical and pay my employees well. They are like family. All that reflects in the brand,” she says. Rosemary sources beautiful fabrics 8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 26, 2015

Livia Arena

yeojin bae Born in Korea and raised in Sydney, Yeojin Bae chose Melbourne as her base when she launched her eponymous label in 2006. Nine years on, she has become a celebrated designer known for her sharp tailoring and feminine yet edgy silhouettes. Her label is hotly sought after in boutiques across the nation as well as Myer, where it is one of the Australian designer drawcards. Her diffusion line, YB J’Aime, appeals to a broader demographic. Yeojin seemed destined to make her mark in fashion. An academic high achiever, she was accepted into the prestigious Whitehouse Institute of Design at 15. After graduating two years later, she interned in the US with Anna Sui and Marc Jacobs before returning to Australia to work for Saba and Charlie Brown. By 2006, she was ready to go out on her own. “I did experiment with doing some things overseas in the beginning, when I was focusing on a lot more embellishment, but I decided that wasn’t the way for me and for the past five years I have been doing it locally.” These days she designs her collections in Melbourne and manufactures in Sydney. There’s an angular precision to Yeojin’s creations. She says manufacturing locally enables her to keep a close eye on her designs. It also means she can quickly boost production of a particular item if demand warrants it. “The ease of dealing with someone locally far outweighs doing it in Asia because you can have a hands-on interaction with the factory. They can offer advice about how a style may or may not work with a particular fabric and I can address production issues immediately. “In China they simply do as you say. They won’t come back to you if there is something wrong with the production,” she says. “The wealth of experience from local manufacturers means they genuinely impart advice and you get a better finish all round – you and the customer win.” ● » shop.yeojinbae.com

Livia Arena is about as hands-on as they come in fashion. From a two-storey townhouse in Carlton, the two-time finalist in the Tiffany & Co National Designer Award immerses herself in every aspect of creating two seasonal collections a year – from pattern-making and cutting to sampling – before handing over production to local manufacturers. The 31-year-old began studying arts and finance at University of Melbourne before enrolling in fashion at RMIT. Working in banking helped her save the seed money to launch her label in 2011. For Livia, manufacturing locally is a practical and ethical consideration. “I like the idea of making in Australia for pure ethical reasons,” she says. “I tried getting a quote from Hong Kong when I first started, to see how it compared to being made here. But I am such a control freak and handing something over to someone in another country was frightening and didn’t appeal.” Livia sources fabrics from Asia and from a Melbourne company that imports from Italy. “There are many manufacturers here who are still doing a great job and take pride in their work,” she says. The local business model suits Livia’s hands-on approach. She immerses herself in every aspect of the process, from customdyeing fabrics and sourcing mohair from her friend’s farm (she dyes and felts the goat hair for the collars on coats) to drafting patterns up to 20 times before they are perfect. ● » www.liviaarena.com

’ve just paid a physiotherapist to hurt me. The other adult in this house has also done the same thing for our family’s six-monthly check-up at the dentist, which I might add he organised for a Saturday morning. That’s what it’s become around here. We are putting up with a level of pain for the greater good. Yay us. These things have had a knock-on effect. The physio told me my back would behave better if I did some swimming, so I enlisted the other adult for support. When we got to the pool we were told the indoor one was closed for kiddie lessons, but we could use the outdoor pool. It is winter, we told them, a truism they’d evidently heard before because they smiled and said it is actually warmer in the outdoor pool than out. We already had our togs on so, strangely, and completely out of character for both of us, we just did it. It is amazing how good you can feel about yourself by simply doing a couple of laps of

a pool in winter (although I do question my use of the word “simply” here). Good pain, we said, we are conquering good pain. So then we decided to relinquish our Saturday sleep-in to go to have our teeth scraped. As a family. It will be good for us, we said, we will bond as we wait for each other to come out of the pain-chambers. We can watch daytime chat-show reruns and calm each other as we anticipate the possible news of the need for fresh fillings. We can discuss dental hygiene issues as we sit on the cold leather couches while the rest of the world is still snoozing or sipping coffee in their PJs. What fun. But we’ll feel better afterwards, because at least we won’t have to do it again for another six months. But again, knock-on effect. The dentist had just watched That Sugar Film. She told us all about the teenager who drank so much Mountain Dew he had to have his entire set of teeth pulled out. So, we went home and we watched That Sugar Film too, and possibly because we still felt the shine of sanctimony from the cold swim, we decided we were all going to try to eat less sugar. And that could well prove to be the greatest pain of all.

But that clever little film had us all freaking out about hidden sugars, and even though we eat very little processed food, or so we thought, a quick inventory told us otherwise. So no more bowls of ice-cream for dessert, or low-fat yoghurt and cereal I thought were OK but are actually laden with sugar. And no more bikkies for recess. My eight-year-old is the slow adopter of the family. She says recess is all about sugar, so she’s going to get a bit of a shock when she opens her lunch box today.

Anyway … (ISTOCK)

MY VIEW

It is amazing how good you can feel about yourself by doing a couple of laps of a pool

For the record, I googled “how much sugar is in wine” and to my delight found out that there’s not that much. Thank the sweet lord for that, because a wine or two a night is good for my back pain. Probably even better than swimming in a cold pool in winter. ● khall@theweeklyreview.co.au

won’t cut it. Lûmé’s 16-course degustation is an ultra-marathon. It will challenge your perceptions and test your stamina. And you won’t know exactly what you’ve eaten until a wax-sealed envelope arrives at the end. Chefs Shaun Quade and John Paul Fiechtner intend their eight-week-old restaurant to shine brightly. Oh, and be nothing less than world class. Noma and elBulli have been mentioned. With resumés that include Quay, Sydney, and The Royal Mail, Dunkeld and Le Chateaubriand in Paris, the odds are in their favour. Lûmé spreads across a double-fronted Victorian cottage. Pale timbers, peach walls and flouncy room dividers impart a country chic vibe. Bespoke pottery and tables set with brass cutlery – or not, in the case of a leathery, salty emu jerky – add a sense of opulence. Thirty-six diners can feast on the $140 degustation menu – add another $140 if you want the matching wines. The less robust, can opt for half-glasses instead.

Flavours of earth and sea collide on a matte black platter bearing a

But when a chocolate shell “cocao pod” is smashed at the table spilling a cornucopia of petite fours, there’s just one word to describe it: wow! ● LEANNE TOLRA ltolra@theweeklyreview.com.au

blended whisky conquered the world. At the time, the whisky houses all wanted whisky with a smoky character – no more than 5 per cent of the final blend – to season their products and add complexity and depth of character. They looked to Islay. This year two of the island’s distilleries – Laphroaig and Ardbeg – will celebrate 200 years of production. ● BEN THOMAS bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au

Aged in ex-sherry barrels, Ardbeg’s Uigeadail ($145) is rich and complex, with caramel and cacao and raisin aromas, plus the smoky fingerprint of Islay. It’s incredibly smooth and balanced, with an unctuous mouth feel and flavours that include honey spread on fruit toast and sweet caramel, before finishing with smoky caramel and black olive flavours.

f mystery was a flavour, it would surely be the complex, smoky flavours of Islay whisky. Islay is a tiny island on the Hebrides on Scotland’s west coast. There are just eight distilleries on the island. Pronounced “eye-la”, more than 200 years ago the island was a popular place to make whisky thanks to its taxation laws. The Lord of the Isles governed the taxes in Islay, rather than the mainland treasury, and distilleries had to only estimate their annual production to determine the duty. Surprisingly most distilleries made far more whisky than projected. Ahem. Islay whisky is known for its extremely smoky characters, which come from barley smoked over the island’s peat. Early distillers used peat to dry their barley – along with heating their homes, cooking and smoking their fish. Islay whisky got its big break in 1871 with the outbreak of phylloxera in France which attacked the roots of grapevines and decimated the French brandy industry. In the 20 years it took for the region to replant with phylloxera-resistant vines,

or many, Tim Conigrave’s Holding The Man is a near-sacred text. The honest, tragic and frequently hilarious memoir, completed by Tim shortly before his death, was the first Australian book to tackle the realities of a gay relationship in the wake of AIDS. When I speak to Melbourne boy Craig Stott, who plays Tim’s boyfriend John Caleo in the new film adaptation, he says he was blissfully unaware how cherished the book was. “Prior to the audition, I had no idea,” Craig says. “It was only when I told people I’d got the job that so many came out of the woodwork and said, ‘that book changed my life’.” Craig says he worked hard to make his version of John true to life. He spent time with Tim (played by Ryan Corr) and John’s friends and family, reconciling their different perspectives into a fully rounded character. He’s been delighted by the reception his performance has received. “You have a great responsibility, knowing these people actually walked the earth, to get the approval of those who knew them. In terms of anything any review says, it’s going to come second to that approval.”

He ended up becoming so attached to John that he struggled filming the final, heartbreaking scenes. “I was crying quite a lot, out of the blue, because this beautiful boy that I’d known called John, who I’d been with for a year, was going to leave me now. I’ve certainly set the benchmark in terms of how much I care for a character.” Early reviews of Holding the Man have been – quite rightfully – rapturous, but Craig says he knows the film isn’t your typical screen romance, particularly when it comes to Australian movies. “People have touted this as the great Australian love story but I think in many ways it’s unAustralian, given its subject matter. There are huge portions of the population – this infiltrates to the highest levels of government – who don’t view gays as part of our culture, but rather seek to marginalise them. Whoever you are and whoever you choose to love, you’re still going to experience the same hardships, the fear of loss, the same joys. Nobody is really that different.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au

Halsey \ Badlands (Universal) HEAR iamhalsey.com Web sensation Halsey built a devoted army of followers before actually releasing anything, but this debut LP suggests she has the tunes to go mainstream. Badlands is awash with the sort of slinky, cinematic electro-pop that Lana del Rey trademarked, given an interesting spin. Anthemic New Americana steps with confidence into the groove worn by MGMT’s Kids, but it’s the naked intimacy of tracks like Drive that really connect. ● HUMANS

This box set contains four of his most fantastical epics – Jason and the Argonauts is the standout – and a clutch of docos. The outdated animation doesn’t look realistic, but that’s the point.

The promise Mount Baw Baw promises fun in the snow for all levels of skiers. That’s good for this family as I’m like Bambi on skis, my four-year-old daughter, Stella, has never set foot on the snow and my Canadian husband skis like a pro.

More bench More storage More style More features More finishes

More choice More experience More kitchen Less $$$$$ Free Quote

The reality On day one, Stella and I take to the slopes for a beginners’ lesson while hubby goes off in search of black trails. My lovely Glaswegian instructor makes me feel less like a klutz by guiding me through the finer art of falling in snow without dislocating a disc. Stella jumps on the “magic carpet” ski lift and scoots down the other side (it must be the Canadian half). Hubby, meanwhile, returns looking puffed and chuffed with himself. Day two is more relaxing for Stella and me as we take to tobogganing, then embark on a thrilling husky sled tour with Jake, who runs Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours. The pay-off All of our varying levels of ski experience are catered for. After a hard day on the slopes we’re well accommodated in the cute Frosti

Lodge, which we share with a family of five who have travelled the 2½ hours from Melbourne. Stella sings Frozen songs with the kids, while my husband and I have a nice glass of red with the adults and talk about our day. The pain factor Any tired muscles are quickly soothed with a dip in the Rock Pool Spa. It’s the perfect way to relax at the end of the day.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?

Mount Baw Baw is great for day-trippers or even better if you want to stay overnight. It offers something for everyone without breaking the bank. There are smiles of encouragement rather than sneers of disdain as we tumble and bumble our way down the slopes. More experienced skiers can still carve up some powder on the harder runs. ● We were guests of Mount Baw Baw. Mid-week family Snow Fun packages start at $160 with accommodation and extras.

SALES PITCH

690 Queensberry Street, North Melbourne. guildofobjects.com

Part retail store, indoor plant jungle and workshop space, offering a curated selection of Australian-made contemporary ceramics, jewellery, clothing and more.

At Guild of Objects, even the most restrained shopper will have trouble resisting the tactile and perfectly formed ceramics on offer. Who’s behind the counter? When the lease for the shop next to Beatrix in North Melbourne came up earlier this year, potters Chela Edmunds, Brooke Thorn and Tao Oudomvilay of Elm Place Studios took the opportunity to open a store to showcase the works of local and national ceramic artists, as well as their own. That means shoppers perusing the trove of objects will, in some cases, be speaking to the artists themselves when they purchase something.

Our pick The very stylish Double Dip Jug (medium) with a generous handle by co-owner Brooke Thorn in Deep Sea. $150.

What’s in store? Pieces by Chela, who makes the covetable and cute Takeawei spotted mugs, Brook Thorn’s beakers and bowls in pastel hues, Alison Frith’s city-inspired platters and planters, and much more. There is also a small selection of Australian-made fashion, jewellery, prints and cards by artist Minna Leunig, as well as plants and macrame. Who’s buying? The store picks up a lot of the foot traffic drawn to the sweet delights of next-door cafe Beatrix, and there are plenty of locals popping in for pieces too. ● VIRGINIA MILLEN

MOTORING ROD EASDOWN GETS SET FOR AN EPIC DRIVE

(MIKE BOWERS / SUPPLIED)

T

here are plenty of myths about outback driving. You don’t need a four-wheel-drive to get to Birdsville; the 843 kilometres from Charleville is mostly gravel but it’s fast, wide and smooth. Nor do you need a macho truck to do Highway One, it’s good-quality sealed road for all of its 14,500 kilometres. Perhaps. But once you’re out in the great Australian vastness you’ll want to branch out. If that includes the Bungle Bungles or Kakadu, or moseying down to the Wolfe Creek crater or paddling the Tunnel Creek tunnel, or turning north from the Nullarbor to see the Indian Pacific pass by at Cook on the longest straight stretch of railway line in the world (478 kilometres), you’ll need something a bit tougher, higher and better at handling dirt roads than a city buzz box. Especially if it’s the wet season. The wet season, by the way, isn’t winter. Highway One is arguably the world’s greatest epic drive. It is unarguably the longest. The Trans-Siberian Highway is 11,000 kilometres, the Trans-Canada Highway a mere 8000. Highway One is the world’s longest national highway and it visits every state including, yes, Tasmania. If you live in the city and have a hankering for the outback, are there vehicles that can sneak into any parking spot at Chadstone but still won’t get them giggling at the Sandfire

roadhouse, 2123 kilometres from Darwin, 1920 kilometres from Perth? Some parameters. Diesel engines are more economical, petrols cost less. You’ll need luggage space. While you might get by with front-wheel-drive, 4WD is handy, especially in sand, dust and tropical flash flood rainstorms. You’ll need a full-size spare wheel. If you’re tempted by places like the Gibb River Road, you’ll need two. Anything on run-flat tyres is not recommended. Look for a snag-free underbody without suspension arms or exhaust pipes hanging down. If the worst happens you should be driving something that won’t confuse mechanics a long way from an authorised dealer.

For the totally committed

NISSAN X-TRAIL

S M AL L \ T W O AD U LT S I’m very fond of Hyundai’s ix35 but my pick is Skoda’s Yeti. It’s comfortable for passenger and driver, it’s well shaped for luggage and while it only has a temporary spare tyre, the wheel is full size. It’s surprisingly dynamic too but the ride can get sharp over second-class roads and corrugations. The Yeti is priced from $23,990 to $30,990. Go with the cheapest one, a 2WD with a manual gearbox. The ix35 2WD, with a full-size spare, starts at $25,990.

ME D I U M Mazda’s CX5 is the best of the lot for city folk but could be a handful for bush mechanics. Subaru’s Forester and Nissan’s X-Trail won’t be and I’m giving the gong to the X-Trail because of its excellent cargo room, its value, its clean underbody and its all-round ability.

TOYOTA LANDCRUISER

But mostly because it can be put in the more economical 2WD mode on the highway. The 4WD models will get anywhere most people want to go. Good economy, good ride, good quality. Warning: you’ll need to buy a full size spare. X-Trails cost from $31,215 to $48,965. Go for the 4WD ST at $37,297.

There are really only two to choose from, Toyota’s LandCruiser and Nissan’s Patrol. Both will go practically anywhere, both are complemented by a huge range of off-road accessories and both are familiar to mechanics out where the crows fly backwards. My choice is the Cruiser because Patrols are no longer available in diesel. Both of these use vast quantities of non-renewables, but the diesel Cruiser uses less. Don’t buy one unless you go outback regularly. Or tow a large boat. $81,232 to $123,312. The $88,596 GXL is worth the extra over the GX. ●

The big winner

L ARG E Mitsubishi’s Pajero is outstanding value and has genuine off-road cred, but I’d go with Nissan’s cheaper Pathfinder for its combination of power, size, off-road ability, comfort, towing capacity and value. Pathfinders are easy and friendly to drive and park, and well-equipped. The 4WD system is simple and effective, and the car also rides well. They cost from $43,905 to $74,879. Go for the ST 4WD at $48,553.● reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

NISSAN PATHFINDER

IF LOOKS COULD THRILL. COMPLIMENTARY M SPORT PACKAGE ON SELECTED MODELS AT DONCASTER BMW. *

For me the car with the best combination of outback ability and city practicality is the Pathfinder. I once took one into the Simpson Desert and it outperformed the Patrol I was travelling with while taking almost as much luggage. Yet in the city it’s light, easy and unintimidating. ●

y day, Melbourne fashion designer Gwendolynne Burkin’s world is ruled by a love of bridal couture, as she stitches an element of theatre, romance and angular precision into opulent and dramatic gowns. But at home in her Fitzroy apartment, there’s no lace trimming or fashion storyboard to be found; instead, it’s all white-washed walls and modernist furniture. Gwendolynne and her fiancée, Paul Ternent, who runs the Modern History antique store around the corner in George Street, have filled their home with art deco and 20th-century pieces, verdant plant life and crisp white walls to create a Zen palace. A green patio filled with plants she has grown from saplings and seeds, provides a tranquil focus. A perfect sanctuary from the dizzying world of weddings. ● JANE ROCCA jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au

PRINT I bought this print by Kelly Thompson seven years ago and fell in love with the artist’s work. She is Melbourne based and does a lot of photography. I really love the technique and organic nature of this.

ENGAGEMENT RING

BEADED BONNET Milliner Richard Nylon and I collaborated on these beaded bonnets three years ago for Spring Fashion Week. In order for collaborations to work you need to communicate a clear vision of the dress he is designing for.

PERSONAL SPACE

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

My fiancé bought this onyx and platinum art deco-style ring for me on the Rue Saint Honore in Paris and then asked me to marry him on the River Seine three years ago with a packet of Pringles and French wine. It holds such wonderful memories of that time and what is about to happen in our journey together.

PA T I O

I have owned this Avanti bike for six years. Riding keeps me from getting tubby because I love food. Fitzroy has lots of bike paths and you interact with people when you ride. I sprayed all the labels off and dressed it up with a nice basket.

I grew up in the Adelaide Hills and always had a green outlook. Having plants in the home is a great way to feel calm, especially when you work in the fast pace of the fashion industry. Our patio is filled with rambling droopy plants, a lemon and a lime tree and herbs. I can see it all from the bedroom.

My favourite thing

This original B230H Featherstone chair is from Paul’s shop. It’s beautiful to look at and highly collectible. We’ve had it for a year. This is a precious feature in our home.

COLLINGWOOD \ 101 HO HOTHAM STREET

WE LOVE IT

I

f anyone tells you that gentility and a bunch of boisterous, rackety kids do not mix, show them this house. Yes, it is elegant. The interior, with ceiling roses, scrolled arches and a tiled fireplace, deserves respect. The original Baltic pine floorboards glow with new polish, and the walls, painted gold, crimson and olive, make a bold contrast with the white picture rails and ceilings. But one need not sit demurely with clasped hands. This is a family house to sprawl in, run through and bake up a banquet in the lustrous French provincial kitchen. The communal rooms, though separate, are so large and gracefully connected that no one need feel shut away. There are three living areas – dining, lounge and a family and meals area that opens to the rear deck and garden – and three double bedrooms. The clincher for many families, however, might be the brick quadruple garage at the block’s rear. Configured for two cars and a big, sunlit workshop with its own entrance, it’s well built and versatile. There’s potential to convert half of it to a granny flat or rumpus room, or back to accommodating four cars. In its present form, it would suit tradespeople – especially as the side driveway offers extra parking. Darebin Road being wide by Northcote standards, there’s no hassle with access to this property. The single-storey weatherboard house dates from about 1920 and has a projecting bay wing and a decked front verandah with a northerly view across the landscaped lawn. The vendors renovated it in 2008, almost doubling its floor space and adding the new kitchen, bathroom, laundry, powder room and family area. The wide central hall, with its deep crimson walls and arch, makes a splendid introduction to the house, and has doors to all three bedrooms. The northernmost room is the main bedroom, radiant with polished floorboards and wide bay window dressed in gold brocade curtains with a swagged pelmet. Along one wall is a five-door built-in wardrobe. Bedroom two, looking onto the verandah, continues the gold theme. It has a built-in wardrobe and a chandelier. The third bedroom has a sash window facing east, and room for a wardrobe. The living and dining rooms are connected by a wide, scrolled arch and have a Victorian air while being quite contemporary. The former is olive with an art deco ceiling and chrome chandelier, and has sash windows clad in regency stripe curtains. The living room, crimson with polished floorboards, has an art nouveau cast-iron fireplace with dark red tiles below a carved timber mantelpiece. The midsection is given to ablutions. To the right is the laundry, with its adjoining powder room. To the left is the bathroom, smart in tessellated tiles with a clawfoot bath with brass taps, a glass shower and a polished pine cabinet. At the house’s rear is the family area with its pièce de résistance – a kitchen worthy of a Loire Valley chateau, with cream cabinets and a Lofra 900-millimetre gas and electric range that has an element for a coffee percolator. The corner pantry has a light, and the wine store and glass-front cabinets make this room as visually pleasing as it is practical. ● ALISON BARCLAY property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Though clearly a renovator’s delight, this 1940s clinker-brick house has all the right stuff. Big, sunny gardens and elaborate art deco ceilings give it a typically Prestonesque beauty, and its position in a quiet avenue opposite Preston East Primary ensures its appeal to families. The front living room opens via a sliding door from the central hall. Across the hall is the main bedroom, with a mirrored built-in wardrobe and view of the garden’s magnificent magnolia. Bedroom two is also a double. The 1970s bathroom has a shower above the bath. The kitchen is in the house’s middle and has a Chef gas cooktop and wall oven amid caramel-coloured laminate cabinets with timber handles. Next to it is the laundry with a toilet. The weatherboard extension contains the large, pink-walled third bedroom and its adjoining study, along with the pine-panelled meals and family area. Sliding doors lead to the enclosed verandah, beyond which is the deep rear lawn with its bright north-west aspect. The garage building includes a carpeted bedroom. ● ALISON BARCLAY

This 1920s weatherboard house seems to have been updated on a ’50s floor plan, yet its appeal is undeniable. Big rooms, high ceilings and original details offer finery to enjoy forever, and the kitchen and bathroom are reassuringly modern. The street is one of the neighbourhood’s prettiest – a mostly intact ’20s avenue close to parks, Fairfield station and Station Street. The single-storey house has a central hall with high dado rails. Off the hall are two double bedrooms with ornate ceilings; one is strewn with ribbon garlands, the other with eglantines. Bedroom three is also a double and has a built-in wardrobe. The grey-carpeted living room has north-facing sash windows and a flat arch to the spacious dining room. The white-tiled bathroom has an enamel bath with shower above. The timber-veneer kitchen has an Allenzi range with a gas cooktop. One door down is a store room with a toilet. A small sunroom opens to the covered patio, which has the laundry off it. The rear garden has a lawn, lemon tree, vegie beds and a single garage plus carport. ● ALISON BARCLAY

FITZROY \ 60 GORE STREET The modern makeover of a double-storey terrace house is often one of period replication and sympathetic extension. This renovation is unashamedly contemporary and the bold colours of the façade are just the beginning. Great continuity is created by an extensive renovation that left nothing untouched. An all-white interior and dark-stained floorboards hit the right note throughout. The reconfigured floor plan turned the second room into a bathroom and a study space with built-in joinery. The addition of a bathroom on this floor has been well worth the effort. The galley kitchen is a vision of chic with a red splashback, granite benches and white cabinetry. It is open to a large living and dining space that is defined by a wall of black-framed glass. White-painted exposed brick introduces great texture to the clean lines. A central lightwell is really the showpiece; it brings in the light and adds lush greenery. It’s the ultimate vertical garden that serves both floors. Two bedrooms share a luxe bathroom upstairs where a standalone bath sits under the lightwell window. A moody palette is offset by a timber vanity and mosaic tiling, and a European laundry is efficiently incorporated. The courtyard is a pleasing landscaped entertainment area, while the rooftop terrace with city views would be the boast of suburbanites made cool. ● EMMA HOUGHTON
