Style Rules — All Episodes

Welcome to Style Rules, the official podcast of Home Beautiful magazine! Each week, HB editor Sarah Burman sits down with style editor and trend expert Fiona Michelon to distil the rules of style – like, do white walls actually make your space look bigger? And how big should your floor rug really be? They’ll also be debriefing on our favourite reality reno show, House Rules, and catching up with special guests from inside the world of interior design.

Plus, Australia’s own Reno Queen Cherie Barber joins Sarah in the studio to chat about easy home updates, renovating for profit and the big difference between Australian and American interior design.
