Inside the latest Inside Out

I always love the little sneak peeks inside my favourite magazine that Matilda Duffercy, Senior and Social Editor of Inside Out magazine, sends our way each month. September's Issue, out tomorrow, looks amazing! I'll let Matilda take it from here.

Spring has almost sprung here and the issue is all about fresh ideas for your renovation, with a 17-page outdoor special to boot. The cover alone brings a little of the outdoors inside, with soft tones and textures making this living zone instantly inviting. The whole home is really special – from the design-savvy kitchen to the considered palette enlivened by the homeowner's favourite tone – emerald green. Cover styling by Heather Nette King. Cover photography by Derek Swalwell.

I have included a shot of another brilliant home from the issue. The Sydney terrace was renovated in keeping with its heritage, but in a style that speaks to contemporary design. All in all, the home is totally wishlist. Styling by Claire Delmar. Photography by Felix Forest. (It's actually one of Inside Out's Open For Inspection homes and here's the video tour - Jo.)

It wouldn't be spring without a bit of bloom adoration! A beautiful feature styled by Matt Page, with floral styling by Caitlin Melling highlights lots of ways to display the season's best as well as a few tips for success. Photography by Sam McAdam-Cooper.

This month, our style editor Jessica Hanson gathered gorgeous jewellery holders and mobiles in her best buys pages. Both were photographed with Sam McAdam-Cooper.

We're about to celebrate Father's Day, and we've whipped up a feast fit for a king! Here are some banoffee pavlovas, that are sure to pull a crowd long after Father's Day ends. Styling by Alicia Sciberras . Food styling by Kristen Wilson. Photography by Sam McAdam-Cooper. Production by Mia Daminato.

I hope you enjoy the new issue – Ii really love this one.

And I think I will too! Can't wait to get my hands on my copy of the September issue but don't fret if you aren't in Australia. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play, the Apple Newsstand and Nook.


The perfect marriage

Don't get me wrong. It's the perfect marriage of old and new, of fabulous art and practical living, of the quest for the ideal home and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. Yes this heritage-listed home in the Brisbane suburb of New Farm by MMO Interiors may represent the perfect design marriage (and my dream home) but, if it was mine, I'd be taking the art in the event of a break up. Actually that's wrong. I'd want it all.

Stalking a mullet

What's that saying about a mullet hair cut? All business up the front and party out the back. I'm stalking a charming old house in Elsternwick, Melbourne with a thoroughly modern extension. I love how the original facade maintains the existing streetscape but the family can express their design personality loud and proud just behind. Link here while it lasts.

Surry Hills Luxe

The latest from Australia's premiere luxury holiday accommodation purveyor, Contemporary Hotels, has me hankering for a little escape to Sydney. This light filled two bedroom corner apartment in a warehouse conversion in Surry Hills by Infinite Design would be a stylish inner city base to explore the sights and tastes of this exciting city. I can't pack my bags fast enough.


Stalking a fab five

Listing here.

These are not leftovers (although I might do some tweaking). Oh no. I'm stalking five amazing homes in Sydney and Melbourne. I'd move in to all of them in a heart beat. The problem is I can't afford one let alone five. Oh well a girl can dream. One or two you may recognise from previous designer features but it's always interesting to see how the real estate agents and owners pitch them. Two images per house but click on the links to go to the listings for lots of lovely pictures. Via
