About Bondville

Hi, I'm Steph Bond-Hutkin. 

Welcome to Bondville - an Australian lifestyle and design blog, established in December 2003 and based in Sydney.

You'll find here more than 1,500 of my articles, showcasing emerging Australian designers and artists, beautiful products for Mum, Kids and Home, party ideas, kids' interiors inspiration and trends in Australian design.

I'm hugely passionate about supporting the local Australian creative community, and I encourage you to shop small, buy locally, support handmade products, and get behind Australian designers and makers.

I'm also a conservationist and environmentalist. Sustainability is extremely important to me, and my family, and I've worked in the solar industry for the past 5+ years. I have a strong love for birds and wildlife, native Australian plants and flowers, and gardening/landscaping with natives.
