House Tour: Troye Sivan’s Expressive Melbourne Home

by Rose McClement

I was trawling through a small pile of emails, the interiors-related kinda email newsletters, this morning. When I stumbled onto the video featured below. I always love a good house tour video.

The extraordinary thing about this video was that I had no cooking-clue who this fresh-faced young man was. He is clearly a celeb of some kind – why else would he be featured?! Still no cooking-clue. Yet, he had my attention right from the very first sentence he uttered! He entusuatically welcomed the public into his home and then the casual house tour kicked in. I wanted to stop the video to go and google this 25-year-old man (who looks like a 20-year-old), but I just didn’t want to miss a beat.

Somewhat different to your normal house tour video. This young man conducted the tour himself. Spoke to the ins and the outs, the décor elements, the whys and the history of his Victorian-Era home. He was seriously entertaining. Plus, he impressed me with his obvious love for beautiful interior spaces. His home is cleary filled with what makes his heart sing.

How was it possible that such a young man could afford the house of his dreams? Well, as soon as he said goodbye at the gate and the video ended, I popped over to Google. I discovered that this unknown factor (to me anyway) is a South African born, Australian singer/songwriter and actor called Troye Sivan! I am pretty damn sure there are millions who know him and his music – well now I do too. I nipped over to listen to one of his songs and really enjoyed his voice and lyrics.

Okay, enough said by moi – Watch the video and listen to his music. I hope it entertains you as much as it did me. I’m so inspired by this young man and his interior choices.

My Scandinavian Home: Kitchen Tour

My Scandinavian Home: Kitchen Tour

by Rose McClement

Hello there again everyone – I have to wonder – did anyone miss us these past two weeks? Did you notice that we hadn’t published a blog post for near on two weeks now? Although we have only been publishing on a once a week basis, making that appearance every week has become so much a part of our lives. Not getting a post out for our readers for nearly two weeks, feels pretty much like not having brushed my hair for that length of time. I’m so aware of the gap.

If you are and have been a regular on our blog, you will know that when the projects we work on demand our time, the blog has to take a bit of a back seat. So, I thought just to bring it to mind again.  This is a busy time in our trade and although we hope not to have gaps in our publications, it might happen.

The feature for today is a kitchen tour video released by Niki Brantmark of the blog “My Scandinavian Home”. She publishes a blog every day in which she features and reveals what Scandinavians do in their homes. Read More »
