Inside Out and a dose of summer lovin'

Has a whole month passed by already since the last issue of my favourite magazine, Inside Out? Really? I would not have believed it until the email from Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam popped into my in box.

This is from the cover story of our December issue, which comes out on Thursday. It features the home of Debbie and Eugene Tan, the very sweet couple who operate the immensely popular Aquabumps blog. Given the surging waves and sundazed shots that feature on their site, it's no surprise that they live at Bondi Beach. The influence on the home, though, comes from Bali, where the pair got married. The interiors and outdoor areas cross over in seamless ways and, let's just say that there's no shortage of vitamin D flowing through their house! You may find yourself with a tan after looking at their residence. This light and bright home is definitely worth putting on your wish list! Styling by Jason Grant. Photography by Grace Cassio.

Oh I'm in love. It's like summer has finally arrived. Don't worry if you can't pick up a copy of the magazine on Thursday. You can also download it digitally via Zinio, Google PlayApple Newsstand and Nook.

Old and new

Respectfully reinventing an exterior. In keeping with the theme of my previous post, Toronto's Drew Mandel Architects did a wonderful job here.

HOUSE House

Always intrigued by how architects join an existing structure with a new addition, this one is a new favourite. Andrew Maynard Architects took neighbouring terrace homes (owned by two generations of the same family) and extended both at the rear, stacking the structure 3 levels high. Not trying to blend the old with the new, these brilliant architects separated them with a clear gap using glass infills. The new form is clad entirely with cedar, which is beautiful juxtaposed with the brick of the original homes. And the outline of the house in black is so damn cute.

Sweet dreams

I'm crawling through the computer monitor and snuggling into both these rooms. Light and dark and dark and light. Photography by Kristofer Johnsson.
