Home Beautiful is incredibly lucky to be invited into some pretty stylish spaces and this includes visiting the homes of some of our favourite celebrities, including The Morning Show's Kylie Gillies.
Between work commitments and the rush and rumpus of family life, the Channel Seven presenter and her husband, Tony, wanted their architecturally designed home in Sydney to be a cocoon of calm for their family, which includes their sons, Gus and Archie, and their two gorgeous French bulldogs. With a relaxed boho aesthetic and treasures the family has collected over the years, the couple has achieved just that. Here, Kylie chats with Home Beautiful about style, family and the joys of renovating.
Who wears the design pants in your household, you or Tony?
Kylie: “Oh, both of us! Tony really likes to have a say and I’m glad that he’s interested, because he lives here too. We quite enjoy doing it together.”
Do you agree on everything?
“Pretty much – and if we don’t, I still get my way! He can picture things better than I can, but when I get crazy ideas – like, ‘Let’s move the couch upstairs!’ – he indulges me.”
"I have a passion for interiors, but at the end of the day, a home is all about the people in it"Kylie Gillies
How was the building process?
“It sounds exciting, but in reality it’s a lot of hard work. But it’s nice to know that every scuff mark on the wall is one that you or your teenage boys have put there.”
"We wanted it to be a space where we were all comfy and happy. That's what it's all about."Kylie Gilles
"This is a house that's design to be lived in boisterously. With doors flung open."Kylie Gilles
