Double dose of Inside Out

Here's our second home from the July issue of Inside Out. I'll let managing editor Lee Tran Lam fill us in.

 

This second batch of images are from a "renovator's delight" (and as we all know, the reality of such a huge project is not always entirely "delightful")! A group of friends (who call themselves "A Gentleman's Agreement") decided to buy a dilapidated house (and its bad shape was not exaggerated – most of the floor had rotted through, there was water damage wherever you looked, and the stairs had vanished – as had many of the walls. There wasn't even a proper kitchen or bathroom). "We couldn't have lived there even if we wanted to," says builder Daniel Hedge. 

With some styling help from the Cool Edies duo, the group renovated the home and try to sell it. It's quite a task! Unsurprisingly, they have some insightful stories to tell.  Styling by Jane Frosh. Photography by Phu Tang.

Don't forget Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the latest issue of Inside Out on Thursday and overseas readers can find it on ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

Inside Out

You will all know by now that Inside Out is one of our favourite magazines. Packed full of inspiring homes and design ideas. What could be better? Well twice as many issues! Inside Out is now published monthly. To celebrate, managing editor Lee Tran Lam is giving us a sneak peek into two amazing homes featured in the new July issue.

"The images are from a Melbourne home renovation, where everything went suspiciously well! (Yes, that's right, even that it sounds too good to be true, this project somehow managed to escape budget blowouts and lengthy delays – and it looks really great.) It belongs to the family of Jo and Marcus Fogarty and their Melbourne home's makeover was overseen by friend, architect and designer Matt Martino. Styling by Emma O'Meara and photography by Nikole Ramsay."

Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the July Inside Out on Thursday. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia because you can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

Reader's home - Nicole's kitchen renovation

Here goes Nicole of The House Diaries with another newly renovated room in her desperately-in-need of-updating home in Victoria, B.C. I have shared her main floor bathroom and laundry/mudroom, her daughter's bathroom, and now her kitchen is complete. The transformation is shocking, and OH SO BEAUTIFUL! 

This is one of the before photos. EEEKKK!!!! You can see the full pre-reno horror in Nicole's post, along with details of her decision making and resource lists. I gathered up some of the after photos to share with you all and I am absolutely in awe of how fantastic this looks. Good job Nicole!!!
