Inside Out dials up the colour

Has a month slipped by already? I should be concerned that the year is on the downhill slide, except that if a month has passed already, then it must be time for a new issue of my favourite magazine Inside Out. Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us a little teaser from the pages of the September issue out Thursday.

"I thought you might like the colour blast of our cover story. It's on the home of artist Megan Weston and her bold approach to making art is echoed by the palette-friendly look of her house. She turns up the brightness in details such as pixellated, high-patterned rugs and vivid splashes of paint. But you don't need sunglasses to view the rooms, either, as she drafts in moody patches of dramatic dark tones where needed. It's a wonderful home, full of life – and beautifully styled by Julia Green and photographed by Armelle Habib."

Talk about dialling up the colour! I have always loved Megan's paintings and now I love her home too. Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

Art Collector's Loft

Fabulous artwork, furniture classics, freaky little figure perched on two chairs. A light touch was employed by Melbourne design firm Molecule when reworking this South Yarra apartment. Walls were removed or added but not everything was ripped or remodelled, bespoke joinery added and a minimalist shell designed to showcase an amazing contemporary art collection. I wouldn't change a thing ... except maybe that freaky little figure perched between two chairs.

A family home in Milan

As the story goes, there once was a boy whose mother was a gallery owner. When the boy was 14, he asked for a Vespa, and was instead given a Joe lounge chair by de Pas, D'Urbino and Lomazzi. Many years later the boy now lives in a beautiful home in Milan with his wife and children. The home was formerly 6 apartments and is now a wonderfully eclectic family home with amazing artwork on display and yes, some classic statement furniture. I love how the canvas printed with a photo above is hanging without the use of a stretcher (might steal this idea for over my living room sofa). Via The Socialite Family, photos: Constance Gennari.

Northern Tablelands

A moody, dramatic country home. A modern day homestead with a killer art collection. Layers of personality and a practical luxury. A refuge from the harsh countryside outside. Northern Tablelands home by who else but Hare + Klein.
