Inside Out is out

I knew it was time. I had sweaty palms, a slight headache, a dry mouth. I was hanging out ... for my favourite interiors magazine. I knew it was time for the latest edition of Inside Out when an email from Lee Tran Lam, Managing Editor arrived in my inbox. I knew it would be a sneak peek at one of the fabulous homes in the March issue. I just knew it. Here's what she wrote,

It's the weekend home of interior designer and stylist Kali Cavanagh – and with a CV like that, it's unsurprising that it's a beautiful, well-furnished space. It's located in Daylesford and has a nice mix of age-worn industrial pieces. She's also added lots of personal touches – courtesy of her toolbox and DIY-savviness. In the bathroom, there's a vanity that's unlike any I've ever seen before. "It was a desk," she says. "I removed the legs, cut down the top and cut a hole for the sink then added one of the desk legs at the front." She also transformed a set of drawers into another vanity, placing brass French mailbox name plates near the handles. (The stylist is Julia Green and photographer Armelle Habib.)

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

Bah humbug!

Thought I'd show you the extent of my Christmas decorations for this year. Brass candlesticks, white candles, box of matches. Done! I think I'm over the whole Christmas thing already. I will, however, never be over the whole fire thing ;)

Villa Solaire

Sitting solidly in the village of Morzine in the Rhône-Alpes region of France is an old wooden farmhouse from 1840. The renovation by Jérémie Koempgen Architecture and FUGA respects the history of the building while creating a modern luxury holiday villa. By piercing the wooden envelope light is allowed deep within. Like yesterday's Yorkshire barn conversion the home is minimalist, its dark colour scheme referencing traditional dark interiors centred round the hearth. Soaring ceilings and hefty beams are balanced by the clean modern lines of the furniture and fittings.

Kishani Perera favourites

I die for that rug. And painting the trim and part of the stairs black is such an easy solution to add drama to otherwise boring architectural detail. 

I could definitively chill here. Fantastic window. 

Such a cozy living room. I can see myself sitting there whilst planning a trip to Africa.

When pink accents actually work really well. 

I want this art. LOVE!

Dark bedrooms are so fabulous for the cocooning feeling they exude. I miss my chocolate brown bedroom. 

I desperately want to move to a warmer climate and have a porch like this. I'd live out here.

Canal House

Monday means escape day. Run away from the beginning of the work week and dream of faraway places. Enter the dark and moody luxury of the Canal House boutique hotel in Amsterdam's Jordaan district. Waiting within is a secret green oasis bathed in dappled light. Light and dark, old and new, drawing inspiration from Dutch history and art. Shall we run away to the dark side? Work can wait.
