Pheobe Rolleston, Glen Iris

Looking at the images of this home alone, with its blend of design periods and geographical influences, it isn’t easy to determine its location! What looks like it could be an elegant Santorini contemporary gallery is actually the family home of artist and interior decorator Phoebe Rolleston, George Rolleston, and their children Humphry (7), Louis (5), and William (3), located in the Melbourne suburb of Glen Iris!   Formerly a quirky ‘80s property, renovations by architect Lucy Bowen have totally transformed this home, complemented by an ever-changing display of original art.

Jennifer Tighe, Moonee Ponds

Plenty has changed over the life of this 100-year-old property, but at the same time, not much has changed at all.  Originally built in 1923 with dairy buildings and stables at the rear, the house has been passed down over the same family for generations. Today, the Moonee Ponds home belongs to the original owner’s grandchild, artist Martin Tighe, and his wife Jennifer Tighe. Since moving in 1991, the couple have completed three renovations and raised three children in this house, which is reflected in its intimate, layered feel.
