Serial renovators triumph with this 1920s abode

Article by homes+

When a long-admired 1920s abode came on the market, this energetic family in Sydney jumped at the chance to make it their dream home

Jane Garrett is a graphic designer who lives with her partner Peter and teenage children Phoebe and Gil.

They bought their home on Sydney’s North Shore back in 2006. “It was built in 1919 and we thought it was a bit unusual and that there was something special about it,” explains Jane. “We also loved the leafiness and peace of the neighbourhood it was in.”

She describes her decorating style as ‘East meets West’. “I’m always changing things around and moving things about as I’m often inspired by my travels,” Jane admits.
