Inside Out

Ever since Inside Out magazine went monthly I've been in seventh heaven. After all you can never get too much of a good thing! Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent along a sneak peek into the new September issue.

The mag is out Thursday, and I've bundled up for you our cover story – it's about a couple who organised their Melbourne renovation from the Middle East (!), where they were based, via Skype and time-zone-coordinating correspondence with local architect Clare Cousins (pictured), who got the ball rolling and ensured the process was as hitch-free as possible by the time they landed back in Australia. You can see that all the organisation clearly paid off in these images, styled by Marsha Golemac and photographed by Brooke Holm.

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

hoo favourites

I love this sleek little nook. Black and marble with a splash of gold. Beauty.

Compact and cute. Dying over the hex tiled floor. 

Not a new concept, but it is amazing what you can accomplish with a set of kitchen cabinets and a slab of marble.

*** HOT ***

Another hot bathroom. Complete with black marble, white subway tiles, one of my favourite mirrors, and black hex floor tiles. 

If you have a gorgeous tile, why not run it along the floor and up the wall!

 Love the brass lights and the cool theater chair. Perfect for a narrow hallway.

hoo...I'm home

hoo.
home of one, one of a kind.

Some say, "There is no place like home". We prefer "There is no place like your home". After all,
where else can you feel truly at ease when you step through the door and breathe out......
"hoo... I'm home."

hoo is an interior design firm based in Hong Kong, founded in 2009 by YC Chen ~~~ creating one-of-a-kind HAUTE COUTURE homes. I have to admit that this description took me by surprise. I don't really see these spaces as that one-of-a-kind, and they are not at all what I would imagine when I hear the words haute couture. That being said, I really like what he is doing, which I would think is not your average style for Hong Kong. It is modern, almost minimal, and has alot of Scandinavian notes. Throw in some Serge Mouille & Jieldé lights, some caramel leather, some sleek Scandi furniture and I am a happy camper.
