Penelope Herbert


Style Editor, Podcast Host, Champagne Drinker I’m the nosy journalist who loves asking questions. From the age of three I explored the world around me talking to the people I’d meet. While my parents and sister were unloading suitcases from the car, having arrived at our holiday destination, I’d disappear. Not so much a cunning plan to get out of lifting heavy suitcases but a reconnaissance. I’d return some time later with information about all the other people in the vicinity – fellow holiday makers and local residents. This seemingly natural talent was surpassed only by my passion for moving pictures.

My parents bought a television only so I didn’t grow up across the road, watching the television of neighbours. True story. So upon leaving school, I trained as a Film Editor spending ten years in the film industry. My love of writing was always evident, as was my obsession with fashion and passion for architecture, design, and interiors.

So I became a writer and print + digital magazine interviewer in business and lifestyle. I was Editorial Director for a national fashion and lifestyle magazine followed by seven years as Contributing Editor to a business magazine and two years as Managing Editor of a suite of on-line fashion and lifestyle magazines.

Interviewing rock stars, shoe, handbag and accessories designers, makeup artists, skin care developers, wine makers, chefs, CEO’s, entrepreneurs, interior designers, landscape architects, recycling gurus, health + fitness experts, stylists, and more allowed the nosy journalist in me to be paid for asking questions – something I’d done my whole life.

I currently write a weekly Home + Interiors newspaper column for the Weekender Herald and am a ‘thought leader’ blogger for Australia’s largest gift and homewares exhibition, Reed Gift Fairs.

Now I’ve taken those loves to digital. I recently spent ten months as Producer and Presenter of a weekly radio show on Fashion + Home, and I’m Style Editor of an on-line Fashion + Home magazine, Don’t Call Me Penny. Styling Your Home… your way. Don’t Call Me Penny also offers home styling and decluttering services.

The Style Podcast gives me much more flexibility and a global reach whereby you can listen anytime to experts in their field talk about their life, their loves, style + design trends, and they’ll provide you with new tips and great advice.
