ne of the nicest things about the arrival O of a new season is the chance to reboot your look. As spring splutters tentatively to
life, we rediscover last year’s floaty dresses and open-toed shoes in the back of the wardrobe, and head to the shops for a crisp new jacket or summery scarf to bring it all on-trend. This week we meet some locals who invariably get it right when it comes to getting dressed. They may not be household names, but they’re sartorial standouts who help define Melbourne’s claim to being Australia’s style capital. Check out their style secrets inside. Speaking of new looks, this week you’ll notice our property pages have gone green – to reflect our links to the national Domain group. As TWR’s owner, Domain boasts Australia’s best real estate coverage, with quality editorial and huge audiences across print, online at domain.com.au and via its award-winning app. Also this week, we’re delighted to welcome Bank Australia as our new property partner. ●

A CATHOLIC EDUCATION FOR BOYS IN YEARS 4 – 12 AUGUST 31, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 7
Christine barro \ 66 accessories queen & owner Christine boutique Christine made her name as accessories buyer for luxe store Georges, where she introduced labels like Fendi and Prada to Melbourne. She opened her eponymous boutique on Flinders Lane in 2000. Describe your style: For me it’s a state of mind rather than a formulaic approach to fashion. It’s always a mix of practicality and delight in the shock of the new. One wardrobe item you can’t live without? Lanvin’s medium-sized quilted Happy bag – a clever carry-all that can transform from clutch to handbag to shoulder bag. It’s my go-to dress bag. Latest splurge? A black/navy jacquard skirt and ballet-neck top by Martin Grant. I love a long skirt, and Grant’s masterful tailoring makes my waist appear inches smaller.
First style influence? I loved Katharine Hepburn. She feminised the male wardrobe, making it her own. She had so much confidence and flair that others followed. Your worst style faux pas? If you are true to yourself stylistically, then nothing is a faux pas and everything is fabulous – because you make it so. What makes Melbourne so stylish? We don’t have a glittering harbour, but we have a high regard for design and a desire to express it in every corner. Melbourne style in five words: One word will suffice: intelligent. ●
geraldine maher \ 46 interior designer, jackson architecture The creative force behind projects such as the Forum Theatre redevelopment and the MCG northern stand, Geraldine has an eye for clean lines and detail that’s reflected in her personal style.
PICTURES \ BERNARD GUEIT
Latest bargain buy? A man-style poplin shirt by English print-masters Swash. It’s a great wear-to-work piece that sat on my sale rack for five seconds before I sold it to myself.
Describe your style: Elaborate. One wardrobe item you can’t live without: I’m very attached to an old, heavy canvas jacket by Belgian designer Martin Margiela. I love the construction and unusual silhouette. I’ll be wearing it when I’m 90. Worst style faux pas? The’80s weren’t great – fluoro was involved. Luckily there was no social media. Best style advice you’ve been given? You can’t go past a good haircut. Early style influence? My mum often said, ‘Just because so-and-so is wearing something doesn’t mean you have to’. I didn’t like it but it stuck. I grew up appreciating clothes that had a point of difference. What makes Melbourne stylish? The weather. You can be more adventurous when there’s so much climatic variety. Melbourne style in five words: Black, noir, schwarz, nero, kuro. ● 8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 31, 2016

sarah gale \ 39 PR doyenne & owner ampr The brains behind some of Melbourne’s most memorable events, from the fashion festival to the choice marquees at the Spring Racing Carnival, Sarah is always impeccably dressed, no matter the occasion. Describe your style: Clean, minimal and uncomplicated. I base my wardrobe on classic pieces that aren’t trend-driven. The one item in your wardrobe you can’t live without? A good handbag – it can lift any outfit. I also love a good white sneaker as they can be worn with almost anything. I currently have four in rotation. Latest splurge buy? On my last afternoon in Barcelona I had my eye on two pairs of Gucci shoes. I couldn’t decide between the Princetown slides, which I can wear every day, or the high-heeled mules to get me through events season. I splurged and bought them both. Latest bargain? A pair of grey cropped flares from Zara. The shape, fit and fabric ticked all the boxes. I like to follow the rule of spending less on trend items and more on classic pieces that won’t date. Best style advice you’ve ever had? Understand your own style, describe it in three words and stick to it. When I’m shopping for something new or wondering what to wear, I always refer back to those three words. Melbourne style in five words: Effortless, stylish, minimal, layered, black. ●

christian kimber \ 28
Ben was 22 when he sold his first fashion collection to the influential London boutique Browns. He worked in Asia, the US and Europe before settling in 2011 in Melbourne, where he runs a fashion and interiors consultancy.
The British-born designer worked in PR, styling and in a shoe shop on Savile Row before enrolling at the London College of Fashion. In 2011 he moved to Melbourne for love and established his eponymous menswear label.
Describe your style: I like to dress up, as opposed to playing dress-ups. I am definitely not a peacock but I like to think I look good.
Describe your style: Growing up in England, I feel a connection to European craftsmanship but my style depends on how I feel and the statement I want to make.
One wardrobe item you can’t live without? A white shirt. They are classic and easy and work in every situation. I always feel more pulled-together in a white shirt.
One item you can’t live without? My Christian Kimber Byron sneakers. I wear them with everything. The padding and calf-leather lining make them extra comfortable.
Latest splurge buy? A pair of TOD’s suede desert boots in a great charcoal colour that changes tone from green to brown to blue depending on what you wear them with.
Latest bargain buy? On my last trip to New York I stopped over in LA and checked out the vintage shops in Silver Lake. I found a unique army coat, which I’ve saved for inspiration for something I’ll create in a future collection.
Latest bargain? My Christophe Lemaire/Uniqlo blazer in a greenish navy cotton drill. The price was great and it’s a really well-thought-through and practical garment – the detailing in the pockets alone is incredible. Best style advice? Gore Vidal once wrote: “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn.” First style influence? My mum has always been a great inspiration. She was always pulled together but never overdone. There was always an ease and effortlessness to her. Melbourne style in five words: Intelligent, considered, understated, thoughtful and surprising. ●
What’s the difference between stylish & trendy? Trendy is about fitting in and says nothing about who you are. Stylish is about self-expression and making a statement. Best style advice anyone ever gave you? Try not to care too much. Style should be about what you want to say, rather than what other people think. Worst fashion faux pas? Tight denim when I was younger. It didn’t last long, as I couldn’t bend down to tie my laces. Melbourne style in five words: Fresh, relaxed, minimal, refined, quality. ● AUGUST 31, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9
WATCH THIS FACE
ethany Whitmore is an industry veteran, which is somewhat surprising given the Melbourne-born actor is only 17. This softly spoken star first appeared in a major TV production at an age when most of us are starting school. She has worked consistently ever since, building up to her first lead role in Girl Asleep, an Australian coming-of-age film with a fairytale twist.
What’s the buzz? Girl Asleep won The Age Critics’ Award at the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize at the Seattle International Film Festival. As Greta (the girl of the title), Bethany deserves much of the credit – Variety described her performance as “nothing short of courageous” while the AU Review said she “expertly captures the angst and anxiety of being a teenager”. In the beginning … Bethany was six years old when she told her mother she wanted to be an actor. “My mum thought it was hilarious that a six-year-old knew what she wanted to do, but she signed me up to a drama school,” Bethany says. A few months later, she won her first screen role in US TV series The Starter Wife, in which she played Debra Messing’s daughter. The big break … Bethany has enjoyed prominent roles in films Mental and Mary and Max, but sees Girl Asleep as her breakthrough moment.
d e s t i n y The extraordinary Saville display home is poised to embark on the next chapter of its destiny. For one special family, this will mark a wonderful new beginning. For those who would like to come and experience the home before it becomes a private residence, it means time is running out. In October, the Saville must close its doors to the public and fulfil its destiny as a luxury family home.
Bethany stars in her first lead role, alongside Harrison Feldman, in Girl Asleep, which opens nationally on September 8. Rated M. girlasleepfilm.com Where to now? She will be back on our screens early next year in the second season of The Family Law Law. She’s hoping the international success of Girl Asleep will lead to more acting work, but would love to pursue a side career as a film director. The best part about success: “The best part is the roles you get to play. Greta was quite a challenging role, because it was a very experimental film. I love a challenge.” If I could do it all again: “I’d probably stay in contact with more people. It’s a lot harder to stay connected when you’re six years old, but connections are quite a big thing in the industry. I’ve worked with such wonderful people and I’ve fallen out of touch.” ● MYKE BARTLETT firstname.lastname@example.org

“My wife Sue and I are very involved in our children’s lives. Sometimes they roll their eyes when we turn up at a concert or indoor soccer but really they love being with us. We’ve had great holidays in Greece and Thailand. “I was 38 when Claudia was born. I’d been performing for nine years and Sue and I had travelled and socialised a lot. But fatherhood made me less self-indulgent. Of course there are challenges with parenthood – Claudia had an intense fever once and had to go to hospital and that was frightening. “I had a good relationship with my father, Jack, and when you realise your own dad went through the things you’re going through it brings you even closer. Dad was an enthusiastic member of Rotary and was involved in his community and I inherited that from him. He passed away in 2002, a few months after Henry Joe was born. Henry is a handy footballer and dad would have loved that. He spent a lot of time with Claudia and Lola. He did magic tricks and always had a sparkle in his eye. Dad was fair and kind and I learnt by his example. I teach my children kindness and enthusiasm for the world. I enjoy the spirit of family and I am constantly in awe of my children’s progress. “On Father’s Day we have a family breakfast where I’m indulged with a lovely spread and then I play football with friends I’ve played with every Sunday for the past 21 years.” ●
Writer, comedian, film and television producer and presenter of The Friday Revue on 774 ABC Melbourne. He is father to Claudia, 22, Lola, 18, and Henry Joe, 14. The family lives in Balaclava.
“i teach my children kindness”
LOLA, BRIAN, HENRY JOE & JERRY THE DOG
How has fatherhood changed three well-known Melburnians, asks Sarah Marinos MATT TILLEY
THE TILLEY FAMILY
“I’m an annoyingly modern dad. I talk to my children about anything – Grace and I have had conversations about boys. I’ve told her, ‘Make sure he is a friend first and a boy second’ but also advised her to make sure they’re good at footy and have rich dads! As a dad you indulge the childish side of yourself like wrestling with your boys. Grown men wrestling isn’t a great look. I can go to theme parks and kids’ movies. “Growing up, you assume you’ll just have a baby but our two boys had a rare condition and needed in-utero blood transfusions. They were premature and teetered on the brink for a while. When they were in intensive care I’d get up at 1am to visit them before going to work. And there are heartbreaking moments when your kids feel they’ve been left out
of something and they’re hurting. Then you have to embrace the life lesson that you can’t fix everything. “I’m still in awe of my dad, Trevor. He is loving and patient and wanted us to get the most out of life. But I remember him saying, ‘Never think “not my child, he or she would never do that”.’ He means don’t think your kids are not capable of shocking and disappointing you. “I want my kids to embrace things they love doing and to give back. “I’ve just had a discussion with Grace and my wife saying it would be lovely this Father’s Day not to have three navy-striped T-shirts from Country Road, a hotchpotch selection of red wine, a spy novel I’ll never read and a gift voucher that will never be cashed in.” ●
“i want my kids to give back”
Co-host of KIIS 101.1’s breakfast show, Matt and Meshel. He lives in Melbourne’s Bayside area and is dad to Grace, 15, Jack, 12, and Oscar, 10.
Appeared at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and on Spicks & Specks and is the author of The Summer of ’82. He lives in the inner-northern suburbs with his partner and children – Jasper, 13, Kitty, 10, and Barney, 7. “I did breakfast radio for a long time so spent all day with the kids and went to bed at 8 o’clock like them. Guys like Jamie Oliver talk about ‘quality’ time. But it’s about being there. I was involved in the kinder committee but got sacked because I couldn’t take notes. “I had to sit on those little chairs for hours as people got fired up about chip bark, water tanks and Epipens. I did a lot of sleeping and going to the movies before I was a dad. Then the children arrived and I went to the movies twice – and one of those visits was to see Bob the Builder and the Golden Hammer! As a comic you’re self-centred and having children takes you out of your own head. “My dad, Kev, had four boys under five. He was in Vietnam and became a trades teacher and was a ‘wait until your father gets home’ kind of dad but he’s softened. Mum was called Joyce The Voice. Dad was quieter but funny – that’s where I get my humour from. He shared wisdom like ‘when you lock your car, turn around and look back at it’. I always do that. I turned around once and I’d left the handbrake off my car and it was rolling. “I’ve told my children to find what they love doing and do that as a job. When I started, being a comedian was like being a stripper or a wrestler. Dad supported me and still turns up to gigs and heckles. On Father’s Day the kids give me a present – I appreciate gifts of food – and we catch up with Poppa Kev.” ● email@example.com AUGUST 31, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 11

I’ve been thinking the same thing A and have narrowed the field down to a couple of drinks for my dad. It’s now a
Mars Iwai Tradition Whisky (Japan) $99; 40%
toss-up between giving him a nice bottle of shiraz and a bottle of Japanese whisky. I’ll be helping myself to a couple of cases this Father’s Day, too. Our second child is due in early November and I’ve been on the lookout for 2016 whites (this year’s reds are a year or two away from release) to put away for future milestones and birthdays. I’ve found a couple of beauties. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \
Mars Whisky, made high in the Japanese alps, is on the fruity and spicy side of the whisky spectrum. Iwai Tradition, named after Mars’ first distiller Kiichiro Iwai, is a smooth, sweet, crowd-pleasing style. Rich pear, honey, malt and light smoke are the major players in what’s a good introduction to Japanese whisky. It’s available at Dan Murphy’s. ● Enjoy with \ Fruit and nut chocolate
O’Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2016 (Clare Valley) $25; 11.5%
Henschke Tappa Pass Shiraz 2014 (Barossa) $100; 14.5%
The soils in the Polish Hill River subregion – all slate and rock – make it tough for vines to grow. Its riesling is generally characterised by bath salts and musk and they’re on show here, along with green apples, slate and zippy lemon-flavoured acid. With refreshment in spades and a drying chalkiness on the finish, this will go down a treat on summer days. ●
This wine makes quite an impression, for all the right reasons. It’s rich and complex, with dark fruits, Christmas spice and earthy flavours. The balance between ripe, concentrated flavours and vibrant acid is near-perfect, while a wash of fine, powdery tannins round off an impressive finish. ●
Enjoy with \ Pork schnitzel
Enjoy with \ Roast lamb
BARGAIN BUY Tahbilk Marsanne 2016 (Nagambie Lakes) $19; 13% Marsanne ages well. It starts out zesty, developing honeysuckle and toast characters with time in the bottle. Tahbilk’s version is a floral delight – aromas of honeydew melon, lemon and wet stones burst out of the bottle. It’s zippy and fresh and there’s a richness to its lemon and tropical fruit flavours. ● Enjoy with \ Cassoulet

here are certain expectations that come with dining at a winery. Undulating hills of some description (preferably with signs of fauna), wine-friendly food, an invitation to languish. But what I didn’t expect to discover, in the dining room of a place that ticks all of the winery boxes and therefore could just rest on its laurels, is one of the best dishes I’ve had all year. Hand-rolled nettle orecchiette, the colour of the surrounding eucalypts, cooked al dente so they’re almost meaty in texture, enveloped in dashi butter broth, nutty and savoury and topped with grated black truffle. Earthy, herbaceous, complex. Divine. I loved it so much I dragged my husband back the next week – this time to the piazza – more casual but with the same attention to detail and use of fresh ingredients from the restaurant’s kitchen garden. Our Four Cheese Pizza was enlivened with broccolini and a slow-roasted beetroot so flavoursome you’d swear it had been pulled straight from the ground and into the oven. Montalto’s vines-to-venue approach sings through its olive oil, house-baked focaccia, greens from the garden and wine from the cellar. Like a classic Italian estate, complete with sculpture park. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

THE DRINK \ A great wine and beer list with local and international drops, and all sorts of rum, which can be done straight, with a mixer or in a cocktail. Mojito anyone?
BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN
THE CROWD \ The who’s who of Windsor drop in for a drink and some snacks, while others stay longer and enjoy the full menu.
EATING \ It’s a good thing Crackle & Co comes in 30-gram bags because I literally do not stop hand-to-mouth until these curls of crispy crackling are reduced to crumbs. The difference here is in the provenance – made from rare-breed, free-range Greenvale Farm pork. ●

THE GADGET The jury is still deciding: Belgian waffle batter, made with whipped egg whites, or classic waffle batter without the extra step? There was a vote for the chocolate waffle batter too. The Breville Smart Waffle does some of the work for you; it automatically calculates the cooking time based on waffle type and colour preference and ensures golden, even browning. I love Breville’s trademark “a bit more” button for extra crispness and the no-mess moat that catches and cooks messy batter overflow earns a huge extra tick. ● MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

alking to Caroline Reid (aka Pam Ann) is a delightfully wicked way to spend half an hour. So wicked that much of what is said proves far too ripe to print. But, as acerbic airline hostess Pam, Caroline has made a long career out of being outrageous. Nothing and nobody is sacred. When I ask the Melbourne comic what’s keeping her working in New York, she says it’s because there are so many different sorts of people to offend. “In New York, I get such a diverse audience – gay, straight, black, white, Asian, every culture, every age group. There’s so much you can go for …” Pam has come a long way since playing small Melbourne clubs.

Now she’s coming home with a greatest hits show. “The one-trick pony has done well!” she says. “It’s been an amazing journey. I live in a constant fear that it could all end tomorrow, which keeps me fresh. Every single time I still get nervous. Ten years ago, I would have been very scripted. Now I’m really off the cuff because I know how to take whatever’s happening and turn it into something.” Going off the cuff has its perils, of course, particularly when your character has no filter. Audience walkouts have long been a feature of Pam’s shows, but she has no plans to turn things down for the new show. “It’ll be a bit of everything. Filth. Hopefully I’ll offend someone and hopefully a couple of people will leave. If they don’t then I haven’t done my job.” ● firstname.lastname@example.org

Flipping the crime staple of starting with a dead girl in a lake, the book’s corpse belongs to Ryan, the only boy in a team of predatory teen gymnasts. Does Olympic hopeful Devon have anything to do with his demise? Told primarily from the perspective of strung-out parents, this tangled mystery has echoes of Gone Girl. ●

The promise Ropes yoga is focused on alignment and uses props, including ropes and blocks, to help you hold poses for long periods of time. The reality Sammy Wilson’s new studio, Universal Practice, is stylish and peaceful with grey and neutral tones. From the moment I walk in, I feel relaxed. With five other women I head into the ropes yoga studio, which has rows of thick, white ropes bolted to timber slats on the wall. Sammy gets us to clear our minds by lying on the mats with soft bolsters under our heads. Next we put the rope around our hips to steady us. From here we transition through several poses and Sammy explains how to do each one safely. We then use the blocks to steady us as we bend to touch the floor. At the end of the class we have the option to do an upside-down hang from the wall, so I psych myself up and get vertical. It feels good for a bit, then blood rushes to my head. I feel dizzy so Sammy helps me down.

SCHOOL’S OUT W I T H B E R N A D E T T E D O N N E L LY
Bernadette Donnelly loves working as part of the community, both inside and outside Siena College, where she is deputy principal of learning and teaching. special promotion
WHO WAS YOUR INSPIRATION AT SCHOOL AND WHY? Growing up in a country town – Warragul – provided me with a strong understanding of the importance of community. My schooling experiences there were central to this. I was fortunate to have had a number of inspirational teachers who encouraged me in my learning. They took an active interest in me and were always challenging me to do better. And they were always genuinely interested in me as a person. In particular, my year 12 English teacher Joan Pilgrim was a significant influence and possibly the reason why I became an English teacher.
what iNSPIRed you TO BECOME A TEACHER? My parents were very encouraging of me and my four brothers and it was expected that we would pursue further education. As they had never had the opportunity to even finish school, they felt passionate that their children would. I chose teaching as a career as I loved the idea of working with young people and being part of a community that encouraged learning.
I was fortunate enough to be offered a job in Springvale that I really loved. I remember the ongoing support and encouragement that I received from some staff who helped me make the transition into teaching, from university. I taught year 7 and 8 English, history and religious education. I was surprised that parents treated me so respectfully even though I was so young. It was fun, challenging and fulfilling. Very early on I learnt that how I fulfilled my role as a teacher was the link that nurtured a student’s interest and passion to accomplish their future dreams.
WHAT JOB HAS HAD THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON YOU AS A TEACHER? I have been incredibly lucky to work in a number of fantastic schools and each of them has positively impacted on me in some way. My short but amazing time on an Aboriginal community outside Katherine in the Northern Territory proved to be a truly formative experience. In terms of my teaching it made me be more flexible and adaptable because every day would be completely different and often unpredictable, which was also completely outside the control of the students. I learnt a lot about resilience, to follow through on what you believe in and not be put off by obstacles. I have come to understand that a successful contemporary learning community is one that is based on teams who collaborate to implement real change for the benefit of the community. Within this supportive community, I believe it is important that we work with our young people so they gain confidence and the 24 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ AUGUST 31, 2016

Working within the Dominican charism, which values prayer, study, service and community, adds an extra dimension to the purpose of my role in providing a holistic approach to the education of our Siena girls. We cannot underestimate the impact we can have on the lives of our students and, therefore, it is important that we are conscious of developing positive relationships.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING AT A SCHOOL (WITH YOUR HUSBAND) THAT YOUR CHILDREN ATTENDED? We were part of a community that didn’t really think this was unusual. We were all very respectful of each other’s place and independence.
WHAT DO THE STUDENTS TEACH YOU? Teaching secondary school students keeps you young. I love finding out about the newest technology or trend. Their enthusiasm and energy is often contagious. ● firstname.lastname@example.org

Lawyer / Refugee Advocate
When she left Siena College, Geraldine Collins set out to be a chef. But after six weeks’ work in a kitchen, she realised it wasn’t for her and gastronomy’s loss became the legal world’s gain. This was particularly so for those seeking personal injury compensation against large organisations – Geraldine represented them in her role with Maurice Blackburn. She started with the firm in 1998 and became a partner in 2006. Geraldine has also worked on behalf of asylum seekers – fund-raising and writing letters, reflecting the importance of social justice she learnt at Siena College. Geraldine also teaches skiing to people who have spinal injuries. ●

She has volunteered with organisations including the Oaktree Foundation, which sees young people lead the way to end poverty locally and globally.

CVT gearbox. After 12,000 kilometres he’s almost at the point of admitting I was right. The driving position is high and comfortable with good visibility and I love the surround camera that makes reverse parking and tight manoeuvring anywhere a cinch. The electronics are user-friendly and intuitive and the cruise control is accurate. The navigation goes into a snit from time to time and has to be reset, otherwise it’s easy to drive, although I’d like faster pick-up in overtaking. There’s generous cabin space and good seating, with electronic adjustment on both sides at the front. The rear seat backs are also adjustable. And there’s a power outlet in the cargo area for a 12-volt fridge. With modest exterior dimensions, it’s not intimidating. I took to it quickly and like driving it. ●

when time came for our own Big Trip, we bought one of my recommendations, an X-Trail 4WD. It’s generous inside, compact outside and, while most competitive models offer only full-time 4WD, this has selectable 4WD and diff lock for when the going gets tough. The X-Trail’s problem, is the skinny space-saver spare. Nissan wanted $680 for a full-size wheel without a tyre, but after a lot of looking I found a second-hand one, with a good tyre, for $360. We got a heap of luggage on board but the performance was still good and the economy impressive. The continuously variable auto is nicely calibrated and the handling and ride are both acceptable. And when you’re on the dirt selecting 4WD and then locking the diff is as easy as turning a console dial. ●

e’s king of the kids on ABC TV as the high-pitched host Jimmy Giggle on Giggle and Hoot, but when he’s not dealing the funny card to amuse small children, you’ll find Jimmy Rees at his home on the Mornington Peninsula with his wife Tori and their son Lenny. The couple bought their home four years ago and spent a year living in Sydney to fit with the busy presenter’s schedule, but with all their respective families in Melbourne it seemed inevitable they’d return. Comfort is the key at the Rees’ home, where living revolves around the gas fireplace, on the large comfy sofa and kicking out the jams on his electronic drum kit. It’s where Jimmy trades high-energy entertainment for adult time with those he holds close. ● JANE ROCCA email@example.com
F E N D E R A C O U S T I C G U I TA R Tori got me this Fender acoustic guitar for my birthday present in 2009. We had actually just started going out and she also organised a plaque with a love message on it. My dad had a guitar and I would play his at 14. I guess that’s when my interest began.

I wear thongs every chance I get. I love summer and you’ll find me in shorts and thongs. I should probably live in FNQ. F I occasionally occasionally have to boil them to stop the smell.
T Tori’s sister suggested we go for a superhero theme so we bought a child’s mobile from Etsy, got Batman masks and put them on the walls. We have fond memories of getting ready for Lenny’s arrival.
THERMOMIX I love cooking and gadgets, so this is the perfect utensil for me. My Swiss aunty had one and got me on to it. I can whip up a stroganoff or eggs benedict and prepare meals for Lenny. We got it three years ago.
WEDDING PICTURES We got married on September 21, 2013. Meeting T Tori was the best thing that ever happened. We’ve done a lot in a few years of being together, like moving in together, buying a home, moving to Sydney and having a child. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
BEANBAG The beanbag was purchased from a shop in Frankston but was a nightmare to assemble – we had balls going all over the place. It was $150. It’s another chair option when we want to sit on the floor next to Lenny and play.

SANCTUARY IN THE SKY
Ultra-luxury tower created by award-winning designers for owner occupiers offering larger than usual living areas and five-star facilities just around the corner from Crown Casino.
Inspired by handmade jewellery and origami, the building’s three-dimensional diamond-patterned facade will shimmer in sunlight and be accentuated at night by an integrated LED installation. When completed in early 2019, it will be Melbourne’s first illuminated residential tower. It will also be Melbourne’s first inner-city tower to feature kitchen appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf, the high-end brand favoured by celebrity chefs. Sales agent Christian Numa says that 88 Melbourne is proving highly attractive to owner-occupiers with half of the apartments now taken. “Every detail of 88 Melbourne has been designed for owner-occupiers and our buyers to date are nearly all city professionals and downsizers,” Christian says. “Buyers love the fact that every apartment in the building has the highest quality fit-out including solid granite bench tops, Hansgrohe tapware, Miele or Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.” There is secure parking for 197 cars on levels one to seven. ● LIZ McLACHLAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Location, location In the midst of the Southbank entertainment precinct, 88 Melbourne is a five-minute walk to Crown Casino and an eight-minute walk from the CBD. Southbank’s arts precinct and first-class restaurants, retail and top entertainment and sports venues are on the doorstep.
INTERIORS KPDO has created interiors inspired by the sophistication of European hotels and prestigious homes focusing on soft luxury with textural finishes. Oak floorboards flow through living areas with wool carpet in bedrooms. The kitchens have granite benchtops with timber laminate cabinetry, high-end appliances by Miele or Sub-Zero and Wolf. Most kitchens have an island bench. Bathrooms feature blown glass pendants and dual contrast mirrors with large basins set within timber veneer joinery. ●
n the midst of Southbank’s entertainment precinct, 88 Melbourne is designed to offer owner-occupiers all the advantages of distinctive design, five-star amenities and a first-class location. The $100-million, 60-storey tower has been designed by architects Rothelowman in conjunction with Kerry Phelan Design Office to create 252 city residences for people looking to upgrade their lifestyles. Prices range from $499,800 for a one-bedroom apartment to $15 million for a full-floor penthouse. Thanks to the building’s shallower floor plates, the apartments have greater exposure to natural light and views that take in the city, bay, Yarra River, Docklands and Albert Park. In response to rising demand for luxury apartments, most have two or three bedrooms and layouts feature larger living spaces. The 13 upper levels are dedicated to three-bedroom residences, sub-penthouses and two full-floor penthouses. Residents will have the use of a double-height floor of amenities, including a 19-metre indoor lap pool, wine cellar and bar, private dining room, lounge spaces and terraces. Also dual-height, the lobby features a concierge service and fireplace.
The concierge will greet residents in 88 Melbourne’s grand dual-height lobby with its terraced entrance, fireplace and sculptural art space. With a six-metre ceiling height, level eight is devoted to resident amenities including a 19-metre indoor lap pool with spa, steam room and sauna, a wine cellar with tasting area and bar and private terrace, flexible lounge-style meeting areas for socialising and relaxing and a large-format private dining room with catering kitchen. Terraces feature extensive seating, garden and barbecue facilities. There are also two fully equipped gyms in the building. ●
Luxurious features in the layouts of 88 Melbourne’s residences include walk-in wardrobes, separate laundries, island benches, built-in desks, baths and double vanities. Most apartments have an entrance area rather than opening directly into living space. The majority of the 252 apartments have two bedrooms and range in size from 62 to 88 square metres. The 46 three-bedroom apartments range from 112 to 194 square metres internally. The two full-floor penthouses are 450 square metres internally. ● AUGUST 31, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 29

STRIPPED-BACK A SPA ACK P NIARD PA 268 DOMAIN RO ROA OAD, SOUTH YARRA, 3141
s housing styles go, it doesn’t get more varied – or more interesting – than Domain Road, South Yarra. From Victorian mansions to ’20s houses, art deco flats, the Robin Boyd residential tower and the multiresidential pyramid by architects Wood Marsh, the street accepts all comers to produce a vibrant, eclectic mix. Take this Spanish mission, Hollywood-style mansion, for example, which has been gutted and renovated, merging original heritage features with modern fittings and fixtures. The renovation has brought the house back to life, provided much-needed natural light and created an inviting home. Along the way, the owners have taken it back to its Spanish mission origins, stripped off layers of render, removed tacked-on extensions and added a swimming pool. Landscape designer Robert Boyle designed and revived the garden. Mature Canary Island palm trees were craned on to the site. Yorkshire stones from old roads and footpaths were used as garden pavers. If that was not enough, the house has a broad north-facing view that cannot be built out. The reason? A former eccentric – and cashed-up – owner made news in 1993 by buying the property at the rear to cut down a tree that was blocking his view. Not satisfied with getting the best view in South Yarra, he then slapped a single-storey covenant on the house before putting it back on the market. An extreme move, perhaps, but one that means 268 Domain Road will never lose its remarkable views. Built in 1926, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom house was designed by architects Irwin & Stevenson, who were among the leaders of the Spanish mission style in Melbourne. Crisp traditional is how the vendors describe their opulent home. Features such as the moulded ceiling in the foyer were reproduced in other rooms. The roof was restored, plumbing, wiring and all services replaced. The attention to detail is extraordinary – from the smallest door handle to the window and door frames and skirtings, the finishes are perfect. This is zoned living on a grand scale.

The colour palette is a welcome change from traditional all-white interiors. In the sitting room and family room, grey walls contrast with white-painted ceilings and skirting boards. French oak floors are used throughout the living areas, mostly in a chevron design. Even the powder room gets the glamour treatment, with moody grey wallpaper with orange fish, a mirrored wall and a marble vanity with cut-glass taps. Calacatta marble stars in the splashback and island bench in the kitchen. An overhead light fitting by lighting designer Christopher Boots lights the kitchen bench. Another of Boots’ works hangs above the dining room table. A massive six-burner Ilve stovetop and double oven is matched by a semi-commercial rangehood, bespoke French oak cabinetry and a butler’s pantry. It’s a quick step down to the family room with a second powder room and home office. All the living areas open to the spectacular loggia, which looks out over the heated pool with spa, built-in barbecue and landscaped garden. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, each with an en suite. The main bedroom and two others have french doors to the first-floor balcony, which is the best vantage point for enjoying the view – and the fireworks on New Year’s Eve. The main bedroom suite exudes old-style Hollywood glamour with the luxury of space, wallpaper used sparingly, and voluminous grey linen curtains. The en suite floor is tiled in Italian glass mosaic and has floor-to-ceiling marble walls. It has two chrome-trimmed vanities, mirrored cabinets, a free-standing bath and double shower. A sliding door on the other side of the bedroom opens to the walk-in wardrobe. Four other bedrooms are off the long hallway. A nanny’s quarters or home theatre in the basement has a bathroom, bar and kitchenette. Ducted heating and cooling, a Sonos audio system and a three-car garage plus extra parking complete the five-star package at this famous address. ● MARIA HARRIS email@example.com

MALVERN \ 17 SHAFTESBURY AVENUE In a tree-lined Malvern street graced mostly by red brick houses, this contemporary two-level residence is a commanding presence. Its modern facade contrasts white and oak finishes, while a grand, central glass front door showcases elegance. Once inside, polished concrete floors complement the custom cabinetry. At the front left of the house, the living area is bright with plenty of natural light. Further down, there’s a full-sized laundry with generous bench and cupboard space. The 2pac kitchen has Smeg appliances, a butler’s pantry, soft-closing drawers and a freestanding bench with aged-steel hanging lights. Opposite, in the rear right of the house, is a meals and second living area with a grey stone gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the landscaped garden. There are four bedrooms upstairs. The main has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with lavish Italian tiling and a double shower. There’s also a central retreat ideal for children. Outside, the Bayon Gardens-designed yard has bluestone steps leading to a fire pit. There’s also a cosy outdoor area with a built-in bench seat. Other features include a double garage, zoned heating and cooling and an indoor-outdoor sound system. ● SUZAN DELIBASIC

There are plenty of surprises to be found in this Victorian house. From the street, it presents a traditional facade, with an iron fence, decorative lacework and raised verandah. Step inside, however, and a more contemporary story unfolds. To the right of the hallway is a study with three walls of bookshelves, a built-in desk and a marble fireplace. The hall ends at a show-stopping open-plan area with dramatically high ceilings, timber floors and a wall of glass. The designer kitchen has three ovens and an island bench in black Italian marble. Stacker doors along one wall open to the large courtyard and luxurious pool. A concealed staircase leads down to a laundry and den, which has a home cinema and a wine cellar. The upper floor replicates the quality and craftsmanship of the lower levels, with two Carrara marble bathrooms and four bedrooms. At the front, the main bedroom has a west-facing balcony, walk-in wardrobe and en suite with a large bath. Off-street parking in the courtyard is accessed from Darlington Parade. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

PRAHRAN \ 33 GRANDVIEW GROVE Charles Nott, a land boom developer, retained prominent architects to design mansions that he built along both sides of Grandview Grove. This was in the decade bisected by the bank crash of 1893. That watershed ushered in dramatic changes – architectural styles, materials, even indoor plumbing and electric light. Many remain. This one, built in 1895, was one of the grandest and once Nott’s own home. After decades of neglect, it was restored a few years ago to its original grandeur. All 10 fireplaces, timber and plaster mouldings, wallpapers, tiling and converted gasoliers sit comfortably with late additions and changes to provide a luxurious family home. A sitting room, library and dining room, family room and kitchen, laundry and cloakroom make up the ground floor. On the upper floor, reached by a spectacular staircase, the main suite contains two big bedrooms, a dressing room and a bathroom. Two more bedrooms are grouped around a bathroom and cloakroom. Most rooms access the return balconies and enjoy city views. The original cellar, in the bluestone foundations, has been extended and provides a theatre and gym. The double block has been well landscaped and includes a heated, tiled swimming pool, north-south floodlit tennis court, double garage and cubby. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

There’s Toorak real estate and then there’s Toorak “surreal” estate. Giving full credence to the adjective, this beautiful, two-storey 1930s house commands a tranquil position on 1970 square metres in one of Toorak’s best streets. The house is concealed at street level. Only as you work your way past the lavish front garden does it come into full view. Either side of the marble entry, the carpeted lounge and dining rooms are decidedly formal, with lush drapery, cornices, chandeliers and open fireplaces. A carpeted study or bedroom is situated near the timber kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and a series of more casual, tiled and largely open-plan living spaces. There’s a courtyard, too. Upstairs is carpeted, with five bedrooms, a central bathroom and separate walk-in storage. The main bedroom an impressive suite with a walk-in wardrobe, en suite and private balcony. ● JULIAN HEALEY

Sunset makes a spectacular backdrop to cocktails at the top of Brivana. At any POSTCODE hour, the view westward from the penthouse terrace is glorious. This single-level penthouse occupies the second storey of the Gabor Hubay-designed apartments. It was built with an eye to posterity; the crystal chandeliers and American oak doors and cabinetry will be just as beautiful 100 years from now. Formal living and dining areas, a study and a family room offer ample space, and all open to the enormous glass-bounded terrace. The marble family and meals area includes the kitchen, sleek in granite with Gaggenau appliances, and a walk-in pantry. Towering oak doors lead to the cream-carpeted dining and living area and, behind bookshelves, the study. The three double bedrooms have marble en suites and oak wardrobes; the main has a spa bathroom and fitted dressing room with basin. Four basement car spaces are on title. A lift serves the private foyer. ● ALISON BARCLAY
Open space and sharp, clean lines are two elements often synonymous with modern design. The former isn’t always easy to accomplish in the footprint of a single-fronted Victorian house but the redevelopment here is a success. A mix of ceiling heights, the voluminous central hall and large, seamless windows create a bright, spacious and stylish interior. This begins with a guest bedroom near the entry. It has high ceilings and doors, a built-in wardrobe and subway-tiled en suite. The hall passes a central courtyard or lightwell on its way to the open-plan living area. The Miele-equipped kitchen takes up a third of this space. It has natural stone benches and doors to the lightwell and a courtyard garden at the rear. The dining and living spaces also have access to the outdoors and are warmed by a gas fireplace. Upstairs, three more bedrooms are carpeted and have split-system air-conditioning and built-in wardrobes. Two share a central family bathroom. The main, with en suite and balcony, gets prime position at the front. ● JULIAN HEALEY

Kedleston has a namesake in Derbyshire, whose 18th-century facade inspired this stately addition to one of Surrey Hills’ loveliest avenues. However, it’s unlikely the original could top this sterling location, a minute’s walk from Union Road. “We regularly host visitors and there is always the comment ‘How lucky you are –
everything is so convenient’,” says the man of the manor, who commissioned the house 25 years ago for his family. The two-storey house is perfectly private. A gated wall guards a landscaped courtyard, while the rear garden – a magnificent lawn with three patios – is secluded by high hedges. The double garage has internal access. Indoors, French oak parquetry, marble and
