At Home

Your home is your story


After more than 10 years as the editor of Vogue Living Australia – you could say that Robyn Holt knows a few things about style. Her home is full of stunning black and white photos – many taken by her husband when they lived in Russia during Robyn’s magazine days. She says there are a lot of things placed in different corners of her home that remind her of her time in Europe, including two candles from a Russian orthodox church which now hang in her bathroom.

She admits that her home decorating style has changed over the years – from traditionalist to now more eclectic. Rather than using bright colours on the walls or floors, Robyn prefers to stick with a neutral palette – adding vibrancy with different accessories that she moves around. She’s also a big fan of fresh flowers in the home.

“Interiors are about how you want to welcome someone into your home. You are basically inviting someone to come in, sit down, and soak up your life story,” Robyn said.
