Charlie Boyce is the founder and director of Sydney-based agency, Portobello PR which boasts an impressive portfolio of lifestyle, beauty and fashion brands.
Charlie’s Bondi home is a calming sanctuary she shares with toddler, Orlando, baby daughter, Daisy and husband, Randal. Expansive ocean views and light filled spaces provide a soul-soothing escape from her hectic day-to-day schedule. The PR maven and “Mum Boss” spoke to us about her laid-back interior style, beauty must-haves for a busy life and favourite spaces.
If you had one scent to fragrance your home with, what would it be?
Rose - I always go back to that fragrance as it reminds me of home in the UK.
What are your go-to beauty staples?
An illuminating primer is a must, I’ve been loving the Mecca range of products. A Charlotte Tilbury Glow Filter Kit, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream and a Cream Blush are all staples in my make-up bag. To combat my post baby tired look I like to use a Bondi Sands tan in a light medium and their new Glo gloss, if in doubt always a red lip from YSL as well!
What makes a great interior?
A house needs to feel like a home, I love to fill my spaces with anything that makes it feel lived in and welcoming. I use beautiful photography to provide pops colour, I love Slim Aaron and Hugh Holland’s work. I have a new polaroid of Patty Boyd taken by Eric Clapton which currently takes pride of place. I have some friends who are photographers as well, so I love to hang some of their work.
What’s always on your bedside?
Currently the Mario Badescu Facial Spray, an ECOYA Madison Jar and Coconut & Elderflower Hand Cream which sit alongside a collection of baby bottles! If I remember to pick some up from the markets I love to have a bunch of dried lavender which gives off a beautiful relaxing scent.
