I always look forward to my monthly email from Matilda Duffercy, Senior and Social Editor of Inside Out magazine. It means that another issue of my favourite magazine has hit the news stands. After seeing the sneak peeks she sent over I can't wait to devour the October issue.
This month, the home on the cover is a little special more so than usual; as it also features as the Open For Inspection house. It really is the perfect family home. From the clever storage to the neutral palette, the semi has been totally reinvigorated thanks to a clever renovation by the team at Alexander & Co. It was built by Scott Fairweather of Fairweather Constructions. And the family who live here are lovely and so happy with the finished product. The home was styled by Vanessa Colyer Tay and photographed by Maree Homer. Thanks to West Elm, you can take a video tour of the house.
More info about the project and heaps of pics here.
I've also included a pic from the fantastic kids' party feature. That cake is beyond amazing, and delish, too! It was styled by Jessica Hanson, with food styling by Kristen Wilson and photographed by Sam McAdam-Cooper.
Speaking of kids, how about this awesome wrap-up of the coolest highchairs in town? I visited the set the day of the shoot and it was truly pastel perfection. Our style editor Jessica Hanson has excelled again – she has such a fantastic eye. Photographer Guy Bailey did a great job of capturing the ideal snap. Jessica also styled the beautiful bedroom for a dancer that features. Sam McAdam-Cooper photographed it.
The October issue sees star stylist Megan Morton offer up loads of her hard-won wisdom on styling a bedroom to fit your needs. All the styling assistance came from a styling workshop she taught, so they could really get a feel for a day on set. Love that pooch on the bed, too. Styling by Megan Morton, production by Katie Randell and photography by Jason Busch.
The issue is a kitchen & bathrooms special, so it's packed with heaps of advice for renovators (and so much visual inspiration, of course). And as it's starting to feel warmer here, we're just so excited for summer. I hope you enjoy the new issue.
