Entries in Australia (1634)
With only a couple of days until winter in my part of the world we are still experiencing summer temperatures. Where is winter? I want to pull out my winter wardrobe and layer up. Instead it's perfect weather for lounging around a fabulous backyard swimming pool like this one by Pepo Botanic Design. I guess I shouldn't complain too much.
This post is for the folks who have commented lately that we've been too many posting been-there-done-that, white houses lately. This house has accents of turquoise/mint green in almost every room and I absolutely love it. Fresh and fun and paired with some red and black it is HOT. Thank you Nest Architects for showing us how to do colour.
What could be more marvelous? More wonderful? More inspiring? What could be more enjoyable than more from Melbourne-based Doherty Design Studio? Presenting the Malvern residence. You're welcome.
It's that time again. Time for a sneak peek into the pages of the latest issue of Inside Out magazine out tomorrow. Social and Senior Editor Matilda Duffecy has again generously sent along some pics to whet our appetite.
Look at that cover! Not only does it showcase some serious style, courtesy of fashion stylist Anthea O'Connor's incredible home but, as a big dog-lover, I can't go past that beautiful labrador. Anthea's home is full of sleek design ideas, indoors and out. Case in point is another shot I've included from this feature, showcasing the lovely indoor/outdoor flow that so many hope to have in their homes. The feature was produced by Carli Philips. Styling by Rachel Vigor and photography be Derek Swalwell.
I always love seeing the big, luxurious features on bedding we do every so often. The allure of those cosy sets are almost irresistible. I've included one of the snaps from our eight-page feature that is luxe all the way. And as it's starting to turn a little chilly here, you can't go past all the soft textures. It was styled by Heather Nette King and photographed by Mike Baker.
Looking to the tween world, Vanessa Colyer Tay has styled a space that offers a place to dream and relax with friends. I love the way that Vanessa has worked in personality that sits in a nice middle ground for girls outgrowing childhood. It was shot by Sam McAdam-Cooper.
With more books than I know what to do with, I just love our best buys bookends page. The trend towards marble is clearly still strong, and I wouldn't mind that marble sculpture. Styling by Alicia Sciberras and photography by Craig Wall.
This month's food feature makes me very excited for my Italian holiday! Celebrated chef, Giovanni Pilu, shares some of his Sardinian classics. They all look so delicious! I have included the shot of the Minestra di borlotti, cavolo nero e fregola (Borlotti bean, Tuscan cabbage & fregola soup). But it was hard to choose one, as dessert is Giovanni's take on Italian doughnuts! Recipes by Giovanni Pilu, styling by Kristen Wilson and photography Brett Stevens.
Doesn't that soup look great but what I really want to devour is the pillow shot. That peachy pink wall colour? Yum! The June issue hits stands today but don't fret if you aren't in Australia. You can read along on Zinio, Google Play, the Apple Newsstand and Nook.
