Carey School Penthouse 

Becky of Libby Kirwin Real Estate sent over some photos of this fantastic penthouse condo in Newport, Rhode Island. Libby worked with an investor to transform a dilapidated neighbourhood elementary school into a 13-unit condominium building, which sold out pretty quickly and I can see why! With exposed brick and beams and lots of ceiling angles for added architectural interest, this is a dream! And those hardwood floors are gorgeous but I can't believe the stagers covered it up with so many large rugs. Other than that I am in love.

A sneak peek into the latest issue of Inside Out

I can't believe a whole month has flown by already but I knew it had when I saw an email from Matilda Duffercy, Senior and Social Editor of Inside Out magazine, in my inbox.

Our new July issue hits newsagents and digital outlets today! It's packed full of inspiration for renovating and decorating your home. This month, we've included 50+ pages of interiors that offer so much. Our cover star is a house that showcases a match made in heaven: one family turned to a trusted friend – who also happens to be an interior designer – to update their home.

Just look at that bathroom! Interior design by Terri Shannon and Emma Hunting of Bloom Interior Design & Decoration. Styling by Heather Nette King. Photography by Armelle Habib.

This month's best buys feature showcase clocks and fruit bowls. The clocks feature was actually styled by the winner of last year's #searchforastylist competition, which we have just recently run again. Dani Butchart was the winning stylist, and Sam McAdam-Cooper was the photographer. Alicia Sciberras styled the fruit bowls shot and Craig Wall photographed it.

Melissa Rufty (again)

Melissa Rufty's designs are rooted in the traditional, where colours and/or patterns take centre stage with a slight modern influence and the resulting spaces are elegant, sophisticated and have plenty of charm. Looking for an excuse to paint something glossy black? Look no further. Yum!
