  • Renovating with Gilly's - An interview with CCSS (@ccss_tm)

    This month we had a chat to CCSS in Melbourne. An online shop started by Clare & Sonam, it began as a project to decorate their warehouse apartment in Collingwood. The pair soon discovered their knack for sourcing one-of-a-kind treasures.

    CCSS is the result of the duo’s tireless endeavours to seek out unique vintage, mid century & modern furniture. Each piece of furniture has a story and has had an incredible journey. 

    Check out what Clare and Sonam had to say below!

  • Renovating with Gilly's - an interview with Kimmy & Rhi from House Rules(@kimmyrhiau)

    Welcome to Renovate with Gilly’s, a new segment where we interview fellow renovators to pick their brains and maybe learn some tricks of the trade along the way. This month we were incredibly lucky to score some time with House Rules, winners Kimmy and Rhi. 

    The Tasmanian twins were crowned 2020 champions with a judges' score of 27/30. The sisters from Launceston won $100,000 and walked away with a transformed home (Kimmy's) plus $30,000 cash secured during the series, after topping the leaderboard three times. What an incredible achievement for them both!!

    Check out the interview below!
