Reader's home - Federica's home in Italy

Federica recently sent us photos of her home in Italy so we could share them with our readers. It's beautiful with plenty of windows letting in natural light and was designed by her father Bruno Pogliani. Thank you Federica!

Blog love

A couple of months ago we were asked to name just some of the blogs we are loving for the current issue of Inside Out magazine. Just 6 (but I pushed it to 7). How can we name just 6?!! It was torture picking just these few. I know Kim and I lurk on dozens of blogs each day. We usually divide the press questions on a geographical basis so the choice in this case was mine. If you want to read what I wrote and your eyes are as bad as mine you can see a larger size on my Flickr.

P.S. The new issue of Inside Out is a must have! One of the best.

Girly HQ

I couldn't get enough of David Hicks' portfolio. Did you see yesterday's post? Elegant, luxurious and masculine. And these fabulous girly girly designs? Why it is the headquarters of Australia's ultra feminine fashion designer Alannah Hill ...  by David. Feminine to the max but just as luxurious. If you think the head office is fab click over to Ms Hill's garden of delights website for so much more.

Twig Hutchinson update

London-based interior stylist Twig Hutchinson has created some of the most memorable spaces that I've come across since Jo and I started this blog. The last photo (after the jump) has been a favourite of mine for ages and I thought it deserved a second posting. (See our first post of her work here). Twig emailed us to let us know she has updated her website so go have a peek. In the meantime, below are some magical and beautifully styled spaces that we haven't blogged before. So lovely!!! (Oh - I HAD to add the second-last photo. Guess why. :) )

David Hicks and a big juicy website

The one thing better than an amazing portfolio from one of Australia's top interior designers? A website that is so luscious and large format that the it does justice to the designs! It is a couple of years now since I first featured David Hicks' work on Desire to Inspire (young über talented Aussie not to be confused by the iconic and long passed British designer of the same name). A recent revisit and I was rewarded with such a feast for the eyes. The website is exquisite. Designers out there take note. Big and bold is best when it comes to showcasing your wares. I've included some shots I have used in the previous post because I just had to. I love them so much. Don't just stay here though. Click on over to David's website for an even better experience.
