From the moment we caught a glimpse of Kelly’s Forest sheets in her red brick-walled bedroom, we could tell it was a special sanctuary. The bubbly and lovely multi-talented Host and TV personality kindly agreed to give us a private tour of her gorgeous home that she shares with her family.
Beautifully combining laidback Aussie vibes with smartly built, functional storage, we easily fell in love with the bright and airy space. As we chatted about the creative design and her journey on her multi-faceted career, we left feeling inspired with a spring in our step and we hope you’ll feel the same reading this.
“It’s been about 17 years since I hosted my first paid gig. The moment I stepped on stage, I realised it was what I wanted to do. I love to communicate, whatever the medium. So when I started to communicate my fitness journey, people started asking me questions, seeking advice and inspiration. That was when I discovered my love for helping others.”
“If one person feels better from reading my posts, attending my events or doing one of my workouts, then I am happy.”
"Work days vary for me as a freelancer, however one constant is... the school run! Mornings tend to be a mad rush of get up, get ready, get Sienna fed and out of the door."
“COVID has made me rethink all that though. I am learning to be a bit more mindful in the mornings and trying to find a little time to stretch, breathe and make myself a good cup of coffee.”
“As a freelancer, if the work is good, it’s great! But that means I’m flat out, back to back events and very few days off for weeks or months at a stretch.”
“I have been burnt out a few times but Justin is my absolute rock and will take off whatever load there is, from my shoulders so that I can spend some time reconnecting and doing things that I love - which almost always entails me being in the sunshine!”
“I typically sleep about 7 hours and that’s good enough. Last night I slept from 10pm to 6:30am and woke up feeling absolutely amazing. I realise that getting a better quality of sleep is usually more important than the quantity, but sometimes you just need an early night to reset the system.”
“I love our home. We only moved in towards the ends of last year after a 6 month process of design and build.”
“It was designed to reflect us as a family and to allow us to do the things we love, to entertain, to workout and to relax.”
“I have a few favourite spots... the first would be our Mother Daughter windows, mimicking a Russian Doll if you will. It was our designer’s tribute to Sienna and myself. It’s the perfect reading spot on a lazy afternoon.”
“I also love our five foot way. We didn’t want to fence it off in the traditional manner, but instead have a little garden that we could people-watch from.”
“And lastly, our couch... I have a little nook that I love lounging in and snuggling up to Sienna in. Or Justin. Whoever is down for a cuddle, really.”
“I am inspired by a lot of people for different reasons. But one of the biggest influencers in my life would be Dwayne Johnson.”
“The Rock has a solid work ethic that I aspire to have and embody. But he still places so much emphasis on giving back, and loving his family above all else. All values I can get on board with, because our values truly do define who we are.”
