hen it comes to the most memorable moments on Australian television, we have much to thank the Logies for. There was the infamous moment at the 1973 awards when US cop show star Michael Cole drunkenly slurred “sh..” – the first time an expletive was uttered on Aussie TV. Who can forget 1979, when Logies host Bert Newton quipped to special guest Muhammad Ali “I like the boy”, not realising “boy” was a racial slur in America. And this year’s “do not adjust your sets” speech by Gold Logie winner Waleed Aly, calling for greater diversity on our screens, will no doubt go down in TV history. But for me, nothing beats the moment when 2015 Gold Logie winner Carrie Bickmore donned a blue beanie in honour of her late husband who died of brain cancer. The gesture touched hearts around the country but it was also the start of a new mission for TV’s golden girl. Read about her ambitious new project inside. ●

JULY 13, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7


SARAH HARRIS talks to A TV STAR ON A MISSION

T

he golden girl of Australian television Carrie Bickmore is feeling a wee bit the goose. Weeks before the official launch of her range of fashion beanies to raise money for the cause closest to her heart, the much-loved TV presenter’s charitable foundation has all-but sold out of merchandise. “It has been a quick lesson in business,” the host of Network Ten’s The Project admits with a wry laugh. “Because I thought no one would buy one, I significantly under-ordered. I have just had to put in a new order and try and back-date product. I’m like, OK, this is quite the experience.” To be fair, becoming a beanie broker was not something the mother of two envisaged when she made her poignant and powerful speech accepting the 2015 Gold Logie for most popular personality on Australian television.

‘You know you are favourite to win, have you got a speech ready?’,” the 35-year-old recalls. “It was only after I got off the phone I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I will have to say something’. “So I sat there for an hour and I am, like, what am I going to talk about that is going to actually resonate with people? The brain cancer journey of Greg and I has shaped so much of my life. This [the Logie nomination] was about celebrating my work life, but my working life sat side by side a really challenging personal life. “My life isn’t all hair and make-up and red carpets. There have been some very challenging moments and I wanted to let people know at home they are not alone in whatever their challenge is. “The only reason I thought of the beanie was because I often think of Greg wearing one. So I called this factory about an hour and

a half out of Melbourne and drove there and bought 100 beanies. I thought, if I don’t need them I will just give them to the homeless.” Carrie told no one of her plan except her immediate family and one friend from work. “I just kept it to myself really and, to be honest, I didn’t know if I would have the strength to do it. Even as they made the announcement all I could think was, ‘Do I take the beanie or not, do I take the beanie or not?’. But I am so glad I did because what has happened since has just completely blown my mind.”

Carrie captivated her peers attending the glittering industry event, and the watching nation when she used her acceptance speech to raise awareness of brain cancer. Her voice catching with emotion, she explained how the insidious disease not only stole her husband Greg Lange, but kills more people under the age of 40 than any other cancer and more children than any other disease. And she described how her family was irrevocably changed by brain cancer when Greg died two days after Christmas 2010 at age 34. “Over 10 years I watched him suffer multiple seizures a day, lose feeling down one side of his body, have his little three-year-old push him in his wheelchair because he couldn’t walk any more. He was an incredibly brave man … but he shouldn’t have had to go through that,” she said. She concluded the speech by donning a blue beanie – just like the one Greg used to wear to hide the scars of multiple surgeries – and appealed to colleagues to do the same the next day. Instantly, Carrie’s #beanies4braincancer was trending on Twitter. Between the glittering Paolo Sebastian gown and the incongruous headgear – the frock and the hard place – the three-time Logie winner had opened a window on her soul and the public, already adoring, loved her a little more. But it so nearly didn’t happen. Two days before the Logies, a friend voiced what all the punters were saying. “He said,

arrie was 19 and studying at Perth’s Curtin University when she met Greg. Enrolling in journalism was one of those sliding-door moments, after she turned down a scholarship to study dance at the urging of a careers adviser. “At the time, the careers adviser saying ‘you will never make a career out of dance’ was probably an irresponsible thing to say because, one, she hadn’t seen me dance and, two, I don’t think you should ever tell somebody – even though their dream is big – that it is not possible. “At the same time I am always glad she did tell me because the path my life has led has been incredibly rewarding,” says Carrie, who enjoyed the more glamorous side of the action hosting So You Think You Can Dance Australia (series four in 2010).


Born in Adelaide, Carrie moved to Perth at five with her mother Jennie following her parents’ divorce. Jennie, who would go on to become a highly regarded educator, remarried, raising Carrie along with her two elder stepsisters, Claud and Ash. Carrie describes herself as “a bit of a dag” as a teen. “I was pretty conscientious. I did my homework and had it in on time and had assignments finished days before they needed to be. I know a lot of people assume I was incredibly outgoing at school, but I was a very different person to who I am now. I was very easily intimidated. I was intimidated by other girls who I am sure now were not terrifying, but in my mind were terrifying.” With the same diligence she exhibited during her years at the Anglican all-girls school Perth College, Carrie applied herself to uni and, well before graduating in 2000, she had a gig at Perth radio station 92.9FM. In 2001 Carrie and Greg moved to Melbourne where she joined Nova 100.3.

as she had seen her mother (Dr Jennie Bickmore-Brand) work. “I grew up with my mum, who was contributing so much and working so hard and that was what I saw as the norm. Every night she would make dinner and clean up and I would see her in the study for two hours trying to complete her doctorate. I think it took her eight or nine years while raising three girls to complete. She never complained about it, just had her head down and bum up and did it.” In 2005 Carrie and Greg married and in 2007 they welcomed their son Oliver, by which time the “laughing person’s newsreader” had already become a popular television presence on Rove Live, while still working at Nova with Dave Hughes and Kate Langbroek. “I was working full-time, he [Greg] was going for treatment and we had our little boy and never knew quite what was around the corner,” she says. “We had a mortgage and it is not cheap to be sick. I often think I worked so

Greg lived to see his wife win her first Logie in 2010 for most popular new female talent for The 7pm Project – as The Project was originally known. In the hard years that followed, their son Oliver brought joy to her life. After Greg’s death came a new relationship with The Project producer Chris Walker (now producer of Charlie Pickering’s The Weekly Weekly) and in February 2015 Carrie gave birth to their daughter Evie. “I often read headlines about my new life and how I have moved forward and it amuses me, because anyone who has suffered grief will tell you it is not like that,” she says. “Grief is a really tricky thing; it is a very fluid thing and I don’t think there is ever any end point to it. But I’m OK with that. I can’t imagine it any other way. My past will always be with me, it shaped who I am today and I wouldn’t want a world where Greg wasn’t part of it. I look at my son and I see Greg. He is very much like him in different ways. We talk about him all the time.

PROJECT Part of the motivation to move east was to be closer to her father Brian – a founding executive of Austereo and its longest-serving director until his retirement in 2004. The young couple’s future looked bright, but within months Greg was diagnosed with a brain tumour – its shadow lengthening as it recurred after treatment. “Greg would often say, ‘I just feel like there is no one that understands’. There wasn’t a brain cancer community that we, at least, could find or were tapped into. “We didn’t know any other people who were in their 20s who were going through this stuff. People in their 20s are supposed to be partying, travelling the world and we just didn’t do any of that. “We never knew what each six-month scan was going to bring. It was a completely different and an incredibly isolating experience, which bought us very close together but made life challenging in different ways. I was forced to grow up very quickly.” Through it all Carrie worked, just

incredibly hard, and whether that has helped me get where I am from a career perspective. But I wasn’t doing it from that motivation. Just working in this industry I was happy enough. And it was a great outlet as well. “There were times when Greg would say to me, ‘I don’t want you to just sit by my bedside and watch me be sick’. He wanted me to have things to come home from work and tell him about, experiences and stuff.”

(RYAN PIERSE \ GETTY IMAGES)

“Grief is a really tricky thing; it is very fluid & I don’t think there is ever any end point to it”

“At the same time I am also very aware that I don’t want Ollie’s life to be heavy. I want it to still have the lightness of childhood. He was obviously dealt an extremely tough card very early on and I look at him now and I am so incredibly proud of who he is. He is just a gorgeous boy.” Now, on top of the demands of a high-profile job, the needs of her family and the pressure, as ambassador for beauty brand Garnier, to look good even when she steps out on a school run, there’s the business of the beanies. Even before her latest order of beanies (available at the end of July) Carrie had reached almost $800,000 of her $1 million fund-raising target through her BrainBeats concert and public donations. She has already presented the first $250,000 grant to the Royal Melbourne Hospital Neuroscience Foundation towards developing a blood test for brain cancer. But in this particular battle there is still a very long way to go. “Like most women do, I often feel tired. I am exhausted sometimes, but when I look back at the past 15 years of my life I have this perspective of knowing that I am so fortunate that I am here, so fortunate that I can do any of this, so stop being tired Carrie and just get on with it.” ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

ANOTHER DROP? BEN THOMAS’ HAPPY Y HOUR ONLINE EVERY VERY FRIDAY VERY FRIDAY

I was drinking a shiraz recently Q and its overwhelming character was pepper. How does that happen?

Paradigm Hill Col’s Block Shiraz 2012 (Mornington Peninsula) $49; 13.1%

Hither & Yon Aglianico 2013 (McLaren Vale) $27; 12.6%

A wine of true personality – a bit like its maker, George Mihaly. It’s a bit funky – reductive is the winemaking term – and stalky, but I love wines like this. Behind the funk is a spicy shiraz of perfume, with black cherries and blood plums. It’s an elegant delight in the mouth, with black and blue fruits, spice and pepper. ●

Aglianico’s a late-ripening grape from the Campania and Basilicata regions of southern Italy. It’s not grown much here but it’s a grape with a real future. Fresh plum and raspberry – a little pinot-like – white pepper and wild herb flavours are supported by juicy acid and sandy tannins. Note the low alcohol. ●

Winemaker Sam Coverdale makes a range of wines on the Mornington Peninsula under the Polperro label, plus wines from further afield under Even Keel. This is a gloriously perfumed and spicy wine and behind the spice are blueberry, violet, dark cherry and cured-meat flavours. There’s a silkiness to the texture and great length. ●

called rotundone that has a strong peppery character. It comes from the skins of grapes and develops late into the ripening process. The longer the grapes hang on the vine – in cool climates that can be a month or two later than warm areas – the greater the concentration. It’s found in a range of grapes – pinot noir, riesling, graciano and durif – but most often in shiraz. It’s a character I love. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Out-of-the-box menu items, a liberal dining space and efficient staff make this a satisfying cafe stop-off, whether for a quick bite or a long lunch. ● VIRGINIA MILLEN

milia-Romagna, at the knee of Italy’s boot, is the region responsible for many of the country’s most excellent edible exports. Balsamic vinegar, parmigiano reggiano, salumi, tortellini … even spag bol! So imagine, if you will, a restaurant dedicated entirely to all of these, smartly tucked away in one of Melbourne’s laneways, with a revolving list of stupendous seasonal specials and the kind of charming staff who don’t baulk at your propensity to get excited by said menu, over-order and then ask for doggy bags. Bene! Everything’s great, but the salumi e gnocco fritto is a must if “meat donuts” are a thing you want in your life. Lard-based dough is deep-fried and turned into puffy pillows ready for mortadella mousse. The wild mushroom risotto is also remarkable: pine mushrooms and Slippery Jacks bobbing about in perfectly montecato-d wholemeal carnaroli rice. Ask for the tortellini con brodo – it’s not on the menu, probably because folding the tiny tortellini requires regular rests. For dessert, the Vienetta 2015 is not what I remember of Vienetta c1995; the ricotta mousse, semifreddo and boozy chocolate sauce is a fitting arrivederci to one of my favourite dinners of the year. ●

EATING \ Daisy Mandarins. Unlike flowers of the same name, Daisies are always on the loveable side of the citrus spectrum. Sweet yet tart, juicy yet firm – they’re exactly what you want mandarins to be. As far as I’m concerned, the Imperial reign is done. ●

COOKING \ Brussels sprouts. If you cringed as you read that, you’ve obviously never burnt them. Halve and whack them in the oven on 220 degrees, with a pinch of brown sugar, salt flakes and plenty of butter. Roast, giving the tray the odd shake, for 20-30 minutes or until the sprouts are basically ruined (you’d think). ●

KATE AMOS \ CINDERELLA

O

pera has a reputation for being supersized. Leaving aside the cliche about plus-sized women singing, the art form is characterised by melodrama, grandiose performances and running times that can numb even the hardiest of bums. The latest production from Victorian Opera bucks this trend. At just under an hour, Cinderella aims for the smallest of crowds. Specifically, children aged three to 12. “With respect to the art of opera, it is a dying art form,” says director Libby Hill. “The audiences are getting older. It’s really important to expose kids to opera from a very young age. They don’t need to like it, but to not have an experience of it would be sort of sacrilegious.” As it is, the kids do like it. This is the third year running Victorian Opera has run a children’s program, alongside school “incursions”, for which a company member leads a workshop with a class. “All the kids who have experienced those workshops come away loving the opera. Last year, a group of kids who came to one of our shows was afterwards running madly around the Arts Centre forecourt screaming at the top of their lungs that they wanted to be opera singers, so it obviously works,”

(CHARLIE KINROSS)

Libby says. The company has learnt a lot about what works by listening to the sort of unflinchingly honest reactions only children can provide. While Cinderella will be sung in the original French, each section will be preceded by an explanatory slide. Likewise, the performers have been directed to be unusually physical for opera, so the action is easy to follow. Libby says performances are a relaxed affair offering an authentic taste of opera without the accompanying snootiness. “We encourage children to giggle, to applaud and boo if you hate the stepmother.” This year’s program also includes new family opera The Pied Piper Piper. ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » Cinderella, Arts Centre Melbourne, July 16 (three performances), $30-$45, victorianopera.com.au

The latest big hitter from Netflix is a nostalgia binge-fest. It’s set in the 1980s and cherry-picks the best of that decade’s pop culture. When young boy Will goes missing after a strenuous Dungeons and Dragons session, his small town finds itself drawn into a (literally) monstrous conspiracy. Winona Ryder stars as his mum, with Matthew Modine as a sinister scientist. It’s ET meets Stephen King. ● STRANGER THINGS

Delta comes out fighting on album number five. Dramatic opener Feline sees her turn on her detractors with claws out (her time on Cats has clearly left its mark), ready to be the “fiercest queen out in the wild”. This theme of positive thinking runs through the record (see also Wings and Enough) – it’s basically the pop equivalent of a self-help book. But there’s nothing wrong with aiming to inspire, particularly when the tunes are this confident, memorable and thrilling. ●

The promise Give back to the community, meet new people and learn some great skills by volunteering at the Red Cross shop in Prahran. The store is looking to recruit more volunteers to sort donations, keep the shop looking great and help customers who come in to pick up some fantastic vintage wares.

Angie shows me how to use the register, a regular customer comes in to donate some books and have a chat. Angie says locals often come by just to say hi.

The reality I’m greeted by manager Angie, who shows me where to put my bag and sets me up in the back room. Angie explains that on Mondays and Tuesdays a lot of time is spent sorting donations that came in during the weekend. I get to work tagging items to go out onto the shop floor. I’m instantly transported back to my days working in retail and get into a rhythm with the tagging gun. As I tag, other volunteers sort and steam clothes, and we all chat and laugh as we go – we’re all working, but we’re having fun at the same time.

Who should do it? Anyone really. But students looking for work experience and retirees who’d like to get back into a regular activity would really benefit.

SOCI JUSTICE Schools with a social conscience LEARN

A

ustralia’s first saint, Mary MacKillop, said: “People should never see a need and do nothing to help”. She was definitely a woman of her word. Given the number of children without an education living in rural Australia at the time, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop (as she is now known) helped establish schools and worked with the poor and disenfranchised, teaching them mathematics and how to read. Her philosophy to help those in need has been adopted by schools across Melbourne. In fact, giving back to the community has a long history at Melbourne schools which, like St Mary, are inspired by their community and religious beliefs. Students and teachers often offer a helping hand through volunteering or fund-raising for charities.

SPECI AL ED U C ATIO N R EPO RT

empathy for others is a key part of the curriculum, writes melissa heagney Over the years, social justice has become a mainstay of the curriculum of Melbourne schools and a way for students to learn and inspire others outside of the classroom. Catholic Education Melbourne executive director Stephen Elder says the philosophy behind social justice in schools takes inspiration from the life of Jesus and his work with the poor and marginalised. “His philosophy was to feed the hungry, love God and love your neighbour – to love everybody ‘as I have loved you’,” Stephen says. “[The] teaching really centres around what Jesus has inspired us to do.” He says, in modern times, Pope Francis has continued to inspire the Catholic and

wider community, including schools, to be of assistance and “get their hands dirty” helping those in need. “Catholic schools in and around Melbourne and Geelong have adopted several approaches and programs to making social justice and service to the community part of the curriculum,” Stephen says. “In some schools, students visit elderly citizens’ homes, engaging with and learning from community elders. They also share skills, such as teaching residents how to email family members. “When students truly engage, they are often surprised at how much they love this kind of work,” Stephen says.

Secondary schools also embark on outward-facing social justice projects overseas, where students work directly with local communities to build social capital or work in orphanages. It’s all part of providing an insight into the benefits of giving up your time to help others. “We hope the joy of giving gets into our students’ DNA and inspires them, and others, to value social justice activities as young adults,” he says. At Xavier College, the Social Justice Network extends to parents of students. The program was inspired by the students’ work in social justice programs across Melbourne and the world.

Xavier, and other schools, including Siena College and Haileybury, see their work as an opportunity to make a difference in the world. Siena College principal Gaynor Robson-Garth says students are able to enhance their global perspectives. “For all at Siena College, social justice is about making a difference in the world, through compassion and service to others,” she says. “We help our students to critically examine the world and not be complacent.” Haileybury marketing director Sarah Bryant says there are multiple benefits. “For students it creates awareness of their community, as well as their own self-worth,” she says. “We all benefit from living in a just society – one that supports the law and human rights, where each individual is valued as an equal member of that society.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

Cause I can Dollars for those in need

E

ach year, Melbourne schools help to raise millions of dollars for those in need, locally and internationally. Fund-raising is a large part of schools’ social justice programs. Money raised goes to causes that include cancer awareness and research charities, The Salvation Army, World Vision, Caritas and even other schools in Australia and overseas. While many fund-raisers are one-offs, some school programs have a long history. This includes the Maytime Fair that Xavier College, a Catholic Jesuit school, has held annually for 64 years. The school has raised millions of dollars for the Jesuit mission, which helps refugees, students and communities in developing

countries, including East Timor and India, as well as other Asian and African nations. Projects include improving the educational outcomes for students in these countries, offering pastoral care and advocacy for refugees, as well as medical care and social services. St Monica’s College also has a long-running fund-raiser. For more than 30 years staff have helped to raise money for the Presentation Sisters in Pakistan. The sisters run convent schools across Pakistan that provide education for poor children. Money raised by St Monica’s has helped villages in the southern Sindh region of Pakistan, especially after a 2006 flood ravaged the area. Money was also used to buy a solar water purifier for the Francis Nagar village in the same region, ensuring residents have access to clean drinking water.

Kilvington Grammar School is a Baptist school whose houses each have a nominated charity to raise money for. Every term, one of the houses – Fysh, Barrett, Fethers and Burman – runs a series of fund-raising programs. Local charities, including CanTeen and Very Special Kids, benefit from the students’ generosity. Kilvington is also involved in Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritan’s Purse. It is an annual program in which children raise money and donate toys for other children overseas. Haileybury has also taken part in this program, sending more than 500 shoeboxes of toys to children in need in the past six years.

“The boxes are sent to needy children in South-East Asia, the Pacific and Papua New Guinea,” Sarah says. Haileybury students also support The School of St Jude in Tanzania. Senior students from Castlefield House raise money for projects at the school. “The School of St Jude provides free, quality education to some of Tanzania’s poorest children,” Sarah says. “Every year, the boys fund one teacher and two students to attend and work at the school. Each year they can raise between $2000 to

$3000 and in 2016 they have set their target at $5000.” This type of fund-raising gives students the chance to see how they are changing the lives of children overseas. “The Castlefield boys receive letters from the students that they support, which take pride of place within the House Room,” Sarah says. “The boys were also able to watch online as the first batch of year 12 students graduated in 2015 – it was a very special moment.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

Helping hands Melbourne students learn through volunteering “While they’re not raising money, what they are doing, in terms of service, is giving these people the voice that they do not usually have.” While students at Siena College in Camberwell volunteer their time, teachers, principals and parents at the school are also involved in volunteering. Staff are regular volunteers at the St Vinnies’ soup kitchen each weekend. Principal Gaynor Robson-Garth says it’s a great way for educators at the school to lead by example. “For more than a year, staff have been volunteering at the St Vinnies soup van on Sunday evenings,” Gaynor says. “Over 20 staff are permanent volunteers on the roster, with others on a wait-list to join. “Through [teachers] sharing their experiences, students have now requested to help too, with the younger students (aged 14-17) doing food preparation and those over 18 being able to actually assist with distribution.

O

ne of the strongest philosophies behind social justice in schools is, undoubtedly, volunteering. Many schools have adopted programs that allow students to volunteer time to charities and educational projects in their local communities and across Melbourne. Not only do people in need benefit, it allows students to learn from their experiences. St Monica’s College in Epping encourages students to visit the Exodus Community in the Olympic Village, West Heidelberg, not too far from the school. St Monica’s social justice co-ordinator, Fadi Elbarbar, says year 12 students visit this area to meet the people who live in the Olympic Village. It’s one of the poorest areas in the state. “They walk the streets with these people, learn about the area and how inherent poverty affects them and their families,” Fadi says. “They then sit down and discuss what they saw and how they feel.

“Not only are current staff and students involved, but past students have continued to volunteer to help,” she says. Siena’s students also volunteer internationally. Year 11 students experience life at the Kopanang Community Trust in South Africa, which brings together women in need to teach them life skills and also cares for orphans. Students live and work in the community for a fortnight. “The experience is a life-changing one for those who participate and it has a profound impact on how they see and

understand poverty and the lives of those less fortunate than themselves,” Gaynor says. Through volunteering, Xavier College students learn about the school’s Jesuit philosophy of social justice and giving back to those in need. Students are required to volunteer at least 150 hours in their senior years through programs that include teaching English to newly arrived Australians. Parents and ex-students (more than 450) are also involved through Xavier’s Social Justice Network, working locally and overseas on social justice projects.

Among its many programs, Xavier students volunteer through Rotary Gardening, an initiative in which students don gardening gloves to help those in need. They also offer their time to St Catherine’s Nursing Home and by teaching English to students who have migrated from countries where English is not their first language. Other schools, including Sacre Coeur and Loreto Toorak, are also involved in this “Friday Night School” in Richmond. Xavier College students also volunteer on Thursday afternoons after school at Yooralla Balwyn, taking part in the art circle program.

Students assist groups at the school with their works of art. At Kilvington Grammar School in Ormond students from year 7 to senior years take part in voluntary work. Year 9s work with a charity called Helping Hands, which makes prosthetic hands for people in countries including Afghanistan and Cambodia. Students also volunteer for a term at a community-based charity or organisation. Community volunteer work is also done by students at Academy of Mary Immaculate. They work with organisations, including the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, McAuley Community Services for Women and Mercy Aged Care facilities, which are near the school’s Fitzroy campus. The school’s social justice co-ordinator Sue Moran says much of the volunteering is student driven. “Students are moved by the experiences of others and are highly motivated to make a difference,” she says. “Working together to create meaningful outcomes for others is an enriching experience and one that teenagers relish as individuals and as an experience to unite them as a community. “As teachers, we are inspired to deepen their experiences with the many and varied experiences that are available to the education community.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

Autonomous braking with pedestrian identification, adaptive cruise, lane departure and blind spot warnings. This is a city SUV. It’s on 20-inch low-profile run-flat tyres so the ride can get quite harsh, especially out of town. And there’s no spare. While it handles nicely, it doesn’t come close to Range Rover’s Evoque. But it’s quiet and relaxed and there’s a tonne of torque on hand and no significant evidence of turbo lag, which along with silky nine-speed auto, makes this a very smooth operator. And the audio is a cut above. It’s also sharply priced, from $71k. Given the equipment levels, this most-expensive GLC is very good value against its major competitors. ●

There are buttons everywhere; dash, doors, console, below and behind the steering wheel and on the steering wheel; there’s a control wheel on the console and there are menu systems both in the instrument cluster and the centre screen, which looks like an iPad glued to the dash. Pay attention: it’s not all straightforward. Budget a good slice of time to learn how to operate the most perplexing cruise control. The electronic park brake takes some finding.

elbourne’s most-awarded luxury home builder has created an innovative French provincial-inspired design focused on quality, style and value for luxury home buyers. Mon Rêve by Englehart Homes is a four-bedroom two-storey house with classical French styling and the features most sought after by luxury home buyers: ground-floor guest suite, individual en suites, a butler’s pantry and zoned living areas. The 407-square metre home is designed for inner Melbourne’s standard 15.24-metre width blocks. Among an exhaustive list of inclusions the $775,000 price tag covers a solid masonry rendered facade, Daniel Robertson bricks, extra-high ceilings, Miele kitchen appliances with a second gas cooktop, rangehood and sink for the butler’s pantry, 2pac joinery, Italian porcelain tiles, and double-glazed timber windows. The design can be customised to suit individual requirements and a deluxe specification is available for $700,700. Englehart Homes managing director Ron Englehart says with land prices skyrocketing in sought-after inner suburbs such as Balwyn and Kew, luxury-home buyers are increasingly focused on value. “We have designed a subtle and elegantly understated French provincial house inspired by the styling and fitout of our award-winning La Provence home in Belmore Road. Mon Rêve’s facade has strong classical lines with engaged piers, deeply recessed tall provincial windows and a recessed front entry with a granite threshold,” Ron says. “People come to us for a structurally superior home with outstanding design and construction and we have carefully analysed what luxury-home buyers are looking for to ensure Mon Rêve delivers in every aspect

elebrity stylist Philip Boon chose the inner city convenience of a 1960s one-bedroom apartment in Windsor in 2007 after selling a country retreat in Wilsons Promontory. The Perth-born former fashion designer, who has helped style an eclectic mix of fashionistas from Magda Szubanski to footy WAGs, has lived in Milan, Germany and Miami. But he was drawn to Melbourne for its winters and design sensibility. Obsessed with the looks and designers of 1960s and ’70s, he’s usually seen wearing a 1970s suit and keeps his apartment looking chic with a vintage Kartell trolley in one corner, fashion magazines stacked in another and ’70s furniture rounding out the decor. “I love that the ’70s were all about hyper glamour and that there was a uniqueness to the design of this era,” he says. “I like to continue that theme with my apartment and have sourced many items over the years from Chapel Street Bazaar or op shops.” Philip is one half of ML Vintage – which sells the Mary Lipshut designer label here and internationally. He also hosts Fashion Torque fashion soirees with his friend, fashion designer Jenny Bannister – when they’re not scouring op shops together, of course. ● JANE ROCCA jrocca@theweeklyreview.com.au

BLUE ’60S CHAIR I bought this in 1991 in Perth. It is one of four. I had a little black convertible at the time and could only fit two in and they were $10 each. It’s still in original condition. My friends at Leonard Joel tell me you’re better off leaving things in original condition these days. Magda Szubanski has sat on this chair.

Melburnians are embracing the New York way of life

I

t’s something New Yorkers have known for years – the benefits of living in a luxury apartment close to everything they need. Somewhere to eat? Just walk down the street. A sneaky after-dinner cocktail? Well, it’s close by too. Looking after a garden? As Donnie Brasco would say, “Fugeddaboutit” – there’s no need. Apartments are just that low-maintenance. Melburnians are now realising that luxury apartment buildings offer a glamorous lifestyle in a great part of town with everything at their fingertips. One of the newest and most luxurious is Capitol Grand – a two-tower development in one of Melbourne’s most coveted addresses at the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road in South Yarra. Capitol Grand’s developers LK Property Group says Melburnians are embracing the idea of apartment living to be closer to work, parks, public transport and entertainment precincts. The company’s CEO Larry Kestelman says it’s also because apartment buildings, including Capitol Grand, have amenities such as pools, gyms, restaurants and shopping on hand. Plus, there is the value of living in a low-maintenance building. Larry says LK Property Group looked at what was happening in major cities such as New York when deciding on the look (and lifestyle) of its two-tower, 50-storey building. It has what is sure to become a landmark design from architect Bates Smart and will be the tallest building in South Yarra. In fact, none taller can be built in the area. “We looked at a lot of buildings, and not just apartment buildings, in London, Paris, Shanghai, Hong Kong – in fact, nearly all the major metropolises around the world. “We’ve particularly looked at the iconic London building, 30 St Mary Axe, more

commonly known as the Gherkin,” Larry says. “Our particular interest stemmed from the fact that it is recognised around the world as an iconic statement of architecture, so we explored its design to inform our own decision-making.” London may have inspired the design, but it was New York that inspired the lifestyle. “One of the central ambitions for designing Capitol Grand was to introduce New York-style luxury apartment living to Melbourne,” Larry says. It’s something, he says, Melburnians in particular are looking for. “We have buyers from mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Malaysia and Indonesia but the majority of purchasers are Melburnians,” Larry says. While they are enjoying the New York lifestyle, Melburnians definitely don’t have to pay as much for apartments. Median apartment prices in New York sit at $A1.5 million while Melbourne’s median is about $525,000. At Capitol Grand, buyers can snap up an apartment from about $600,000 giving them access to a luxury lifestyle and a South Yarra location. They’ll have access to five food and beverage outlets in the building’s retail precinct and a 24-hour concierge service. “Like the best Manhattan concierges, they will be there to let residents forget about many of life’s small tasks so they can take full advantage of the amazing lifestyle that is on offer in the immediate surrounds. “Getting the car washed, dry-cleaning done, restaurant reservations made and taxis called – these are just some of the services that will be instantly and constantly available to all residents,” Larry says. ● MELISSA HEAGNEY melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

The project’s two new buildings will be the seven-level 22 Clarendon Street next door to Mosspennoch and the 14-level Parade, around the corner in Wellington Parade, incorporating the former MCG Hotel, where in 1859 the oldest surviving rules for Australian rules were drawn up. Between the sites is the Brookfield-owned hotel Pullman on the Park, operated by Accor.

With 11 half-floor apartments and a full-floor penthouse, 22 Clarendon’s apartments are a princely 174 to 311 square metres inside with external areas of up to 153 square metres.

nterior designer Richard Gasking has an elegant, worldly style that he brings to a well-curated collection of international and custom-made furniture and homewares at his family business Momu, in Richmond. Now run by Richard’s sons, Lec and Marcel, the store focuses on a sophisticated, classic aesthetic, often underpinned by symmetry. Richard gives us his top five tips for creating a balanced interior.

FLOOR

Start from the floor up. A timber floor will need the added comfort of a rug, which also separates the lounge area from the meals area, creating a room within a room.

36 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ JULY 13, 2016

(MARTINA GEMMOLA)

GROUPING

Establish the position for the main seating (usually sofa), leaving space at each end for side tables and lamps, creating a grouping, a new light source and breaking up the open void of the room.

S E AT I N G

Next, decide what to use for support seating. A smaller sofa, pair of chairs, ottomans? Be sure not to line up furniture but rather offset the pieces so that they have their own separate place but are still grouped.  

FOCAL POINT

Be generous with the dimensions of a coffee table. It is the centrepiece of the setting and will be the layer that enables you to bring height (via accessories) into the centre of the room. Keep it within touch with your soft furniture, but allow space of at least 600 millimetres.

SCALE

Avoid using small furniture in small rooms. This will only emphasise the limited space you have. Use at least one large piece – perhaps a sofa with side tables and lamps that span a whole wall. A set of pictures hanging above, and spanning almost the length of the sofa, will create a feeling of grandeur. ● mtay@theweeklyreview.com.au » momu.com.au

MASTERFULLY ULLY MODERN 17 MCKINLEY AVEN A UE, MALVERN L LVERN , 3144

E

very suburb has them – those streets with envy-inducing, highly prized and often historic homes. McKinley Avenue, Malvern, is one of them. With the neighbouring streets off Wattletree Road, it was laid out at the peak of the 1880s boom when Melbourne earned the moniker “marvellous Melbourne”. The houses were built in the following 10 years. Many of them, red brick Edwardians on wide blocks, are still winning plaudits more than 100 years later. Take the house at number 17 for example. A real head-turner, it has gone from a traditional Edwardian to a spectacular, sophisticated contemporary home with loads of extras. It has 10 main rooms, five bedrooms, three bathrooms, powder room, study, media room, upstairs retreat and sensational open-plan kitchen and living space. And that’s just the start. Outside, a barbecue terrace overlooks gardens with a self-cleaning pool, a shallow mosaic pond and in-ground trampoline. Of course none of this would have been possible without the combined talents of architect Geoff Challis and master landscape designer Rick Eckersley. Together they have produced an unforgettable and practical family domain. The Edwardian facade is still very much intact. Painted fretwork on the front verandah contrasts with the red brick facade and the red Marseilles tiled roof. A protruding front gable has a graceful arched window. Inside, the design switch flicks to contemporary. Predominantly white interiors contrast with wide dark floorboards. Large rooms off the central hall include two bedrooms at the front of the house. The main has a spacious fitted walk-in wardrobe on one side of the original open fireplace. The en suite, on the other side of the room, has a double shower behind a frameless glass screen and two basins in a floating stone vanity. The second bedroom also has a small but elegant en suite. A study with an open fireplace and a media room open to a side garden and deck which gives a first glimpse of the

mosaic-tiled pond. This separate entrance could also be convenient to run a business from home. At the end of the traditional hall, a full-height sliding cavity door closes off the original rooms from the contemporary extension. Dark, polished concrete floors, oak panelling, floor-to-ceiling glass and a sleek kitchen with white 2-pac cabinetry and white stone benchtop are stand-outs. A full suite of Miele appliances includes the latest induction cooktop. A well-laid-out butler’s pantry is at the end of the kitchen, with the laundry also nearby. The kitchen overlooks the meals and living area and the north-west-facing back garden with pool and in-ground trampoline. On the far wall of the living space, a pebble gas fireplace is a modern take on the old fireplace. On either side of the fireplace horizontal windows at floor height look out to the pool on the other side of the glass. An impressive “suspended” staircase with ebony coloured open-tread steps leads to the upstairs children’s zone. Here a retreat can be set up for television with plenty of room for seating and bean bags. The room opens to a balcony. Three bedrooms are just around the corner from the retreat. All have built-in wardrobes and built-in desks. One has a feature wall of green-and-white wallpaper. All three bedrooms share a bathroom which has a bath, separate shower and vanity. Grey-and-white tiling add contemporary style. A full-height sliding door separates the bathroom from the toilet and a second vanity, which should be good news in the morning rush hour. This house gets top marks for its bespoke finishes and up-to-the-minute technology. It’s got hydronic heating, ducted cooling, keyless entry, video intercom, alarm, a wine room with storage racks, remote-controlled front gates and a double carport. It is also in a prized pocket near Malvern Primary School, Malvern station, Glenferrie Road shops, restaurants and Malvern Central shopping centre. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

SOUTH YARRA \ 32B CLARA STREET The south side of this street was developed nearly 140 years ago as workers’ single– fronted cottages. Most have been replaced with two-level townhouses. This development introduced an ingenious architectural alternative: two luxurious apartments with privacy and off-street parking. Entry to this property, which occupies the entire top and most of the ground floor of a three-level building, is via a lift at street level. The main bedroom overlooks the street and the attractive, secluded neighbourhood. Clothes storage space is generous and the bathroom is luxurious. Two double bedrooms share an equally glamorous bathroom. The rear consists of a spectacular, high-ceilinged area. A designer kitchen has a built-in freezer and refrigerator, a six-burner range and high-quality cabinetry. A glass folding door opens on to a terrace and, even in this densely populated suburb, clever architecture has ensured privacy. On the lower level, reached by the lift, are a well-appointed home theatre and a spectacular cellar. There is air-conditioning and a security system. Rich finishes – marble, large-format tiles and wool carpet – give an air of luxury to an already elegant apartment. Tucked away in a tree-lined street, it is only a block from the Toorak Road-Chapel Street intersection. The four-car garage is truly a rare feature in this suburb. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

Built in 1938, this weatherboard house is a well-presented prospect, suitable not only for those looking for a Balwyn address to refresh or renovate, but also those wanting something liveable as is. Set at the mid-point of its 799-square-metre block, there are substantial front and back gardens. The house embraces its Californian bungalow identity with polished timber in the entry, living areas and bedrooms in the original part of the house. Original decorative ceilings, cornices and leadlight windows are also features. The formal living spaces have an open fireplace and bay window. Across the hall, the main bedroom has a shared en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The second bedroom, and two bedrooms in a rear extension, have built-in wardrobes. The spacious family and meals area is entered through a skylit kitchen. A bank of five curved windows across the rear frame the backyard and garden, and draw light into the living room. Expect to entertain on a large scale all year round with the covered deck. ● JULIAN HEALEY

MALVERN EAST \ 8A PRIOR ROAD When it comes to 21st-century living, this contemporary townhouse ticks all the boxes. Recently built, the two-level residence is one of two. Its facade is characterised by clean lines, a monochromatic palette and black steel-framed windows. French oak floors lead into a study, with an eye-catching screen that separates it from the hallway. Further down is a powder room, a laundry and a cosy sitting room that opens to a side courtyard. Opposite this is a wall of timber joinery that houses an integrated fridge and freezer and deep cupboards. The kitchen is large and well equipped. White and black cabinetry creates a nice counter-balance to the textured splashback and Neolith porcelain benchtops. Cooks will be happy with the pantry and preparation space. A free-standing island acts as a divider between the kitchen and the meals and living areas. Floor-to-ceiling glass bifold doors spill out to a sheltered deck and garden, perfect for dining outdoors during the warmer months. Upstairs are three bedrooms which share a family bathroom. The main bedroom at the front of the layout takes advantage of the northern light. Acting as a bedhead, a wall hides the walk-in wardrobe area, which leads to the en suite with dual vanities. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

Wattle Road has always been a prized Hawthorn address. Only a few minutes’ walk from Scotch College and Yarra River trails and trams, this bright and relaxed villa unit epitomises ’70s style. Its rather bland exterior hides its light-filled, single-level interiors with high ceilings. The front villa of eight on the block, it has the added plus of street frontage and two courtyards. The carpeted living space showcases a high, angled ceiling, exposed brick and natural timber window frames. There is also access to the front courtyard and garden, a lovely backdrop for the main living area. The spacious kitchen and meals area is the most central point in the house and leads to the rear courtyard. Two cosy bedrooms with wardrobes are separated by a bathroom, toilet and laundry. The main bedroom has a small en suite with shower. In addition, two car spaces – one of which is covered – separate this villa unit from its neighbour. Although there is scope for updating the interiors, it has proven to be a hit with downsizers and first home buyers as is. ● JULIAN HEALEY
