A sneak peek into the latest issue of Inside Out

I can't believe a whole month has flown by already but I knew it had when I saw an email from Matilda Duffercy, Senior and Social Editor of Inside Out magazine, in my inbox.

Our new July issue hits newsagents and digital outlets today! It's packed full of inspiration for renovating and decorating your home. This month, we've included 50+ pages of interiors that offer so much. Our cover star is a house that showcases a match made in heaven: one family turned to a trusted friend – who also happens to be an interior designer – to update their home.

Just look at that bathroom! Interior design by Terri Shannon and Emma Hunting of Bloom Interior Design & Decoration. Styling by Heather Nette King. Photography by Armelle Habib.

This month's best buys feature showcase clocks and fruit bowls. The clocks feature was actually styled by the winner of last year's #searchforastylist competition, which we have just recently run again. Dani Butchart was the winning stylist, and Sam McAdam-Cooper was the photographer. Alicia Sciberras styled the fruit bowls shot and Craig Wall photographed it.

THAT House

WOW! Do I ever love THAT house! :)Which house? THAT House by Austin Maynard Architects. The site is neighboured by huge houses. We were asked to provide the family with 'just the right amount of space'. By creating large openings and generous connections to the garden we aimed to make this modest-sized home feel abundant and broad. The result is a home that is almost half the size of its neighbours without compromising liveability. (Lets be clear, THAT House is not a small home). The owners of THAT House are keen to able to open up to the community rather than permanently hiding or fortifying themselves. We have installed upwards blinds to give the owners control over their level of privacy. The ground floor of THAT House is ostensibly open, however the arrangement of spaces allows the owners to be together, or secluded, or any level of engagement in between.

Stalking leftovers

Hello my name is Jo and I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway. Oh well a girl can dream. There is one problem though. I'm fussy. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I've found my usual modern extensions to old houses, two church conversions, a little farm getaway and a luxury commercial office. Click on the photos to go to the listings.

Elsternwick Residence

In this home renovation by Australian architecture firm Flack Studio, some original history is maintained while updating with some modern touches. And I love it. And the crazy stair carpet is explained: The charm of this house lies in its exceptionally cool architectural heritage. As a late 1960s build by Holgar + Holgar, nothing short of a contemporary redux of 1970s interior style would do it justice. Boldly black angular lines in the staircase and window frames juxtapose brilliantly against the original luxuriant curves of the building. Ultra slick, tightly grid-patterned bathroom tiling is a confident nod to the modernists’ geometric interests, while the original tiger print wool carpeting remains an incredible focal point of a modern family home that celebrates its pimping pad origins.
