MY HOME

Gina Ciancio, voice of Style Curator interiors blog, shares her home build and styling journey. From an ex-guvvie house to their new architectural home with investment granny flat, she shares all the progress and challenges along the way!

My home was our first real interiors project and offered plenty of learning opportunities that I openly share, such as bathroom mistakes to avoid and my top building regrets.

I share reveals of every space along with details of all of the suppliers we used.

Our house is a contemporary Australian style designed by Canberra architect Rob Henry.

If you have any questions about my build or styling, please send an email to hello@stylecurator.com.au.
