Inside Out

You will all know by now that Inside Out is one of our favourite magazines. Packed full of inspiring homes and design ideas. What could be better? Well twice as many issues! Inside Out is now published monthly. To celebrate, managing editor Lee Tran Lam is giving us a sneak peek into two amazing homes featured in the new July issue.

"The images are from a Melbourne home renovation, where everything went suspiciously well! (Yes, that's right, even that it sounds too good to be true, this project somehow managed to escape budget blowouts and lengthy delays – and it looks really great.) It belongs to the family of Jo and Marcus Fogarty and their Melbourne home's makeover was overseen by friend, architect and designer Matt Martino. Styling by Emma O'Meara and photography by Nikole Ramsay."

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

My favourite home...ever

You may have noticed I love Paris-based magazine MilK - their decor features in particular. I was pretty stoked when I came across the latest issue of MilK Decoration at a local magazine shop a few weeks back. There are lots of fantastic homes inside but one in particular knocked it right out of the ballpark. It is the vacation home of Laurence (co-founder of the shop Serendipity) located on Île de Ré, an island off the west coast of France. This is the home of my dreams - every single inch of it. Ocean views for starters, large windows, high ceilings, wide plank wood flooring, earthy colour palette, beautiful lighting (Jieldé!), raw & natural textures (those linen sofa covers and bedding!), vintage re-purposed items (tubs from washing machines used as bedside tables), large artwork....it is an endless list. If you can find this magazine, BUY IT. It is worth every cent, and more. These photos look even more glorious in print. This has become my new bible. I sleep with it under my pillow. ;) Photos via Karel Balas.

That photo above? That is heaven.

Inside Out

I'm always excited when I see an email from Inside Out magazine's managing editor Lee Tran Lam. It means that the latest issue is about to hit the stands and that we are getting a sneak peek at one of the homes within the cover. And what a home! Be still my heart. Here's what Lee Tran had to say.

This home belongs to interior stylist and buyer Karen Kelly Tarasin – built in the style of architect Harry Seidler, her house cleverly matches the modernist feel with lots of era–evoking items. There are even "ancient" stools in the kitchen that are so comfortable that – when Karen tries to bring in any additional seating – her kids make her return any possible replacements. Karen has also worked for Vampt Vintage Design and Mark Tuckey, so she's got a solid background in casting her eye over furniture that best suits a space. 

There's more info in the story, by Lynne Testoni, styled by Claire Delmar and photographed by Prue Ruscoe.

I don't know about you but I'm packing my bags and moving in. I say that on a regular basis but this time it is no idle threat. Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the May/June Inside Out on Thursday. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia because you can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

LOVE!

This 1820's home is located in Santa Teresa, a 'hood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is GORGEOUS, and is the home of Bia Lessa and was completely renovated inside by architect Camila Toledo. The floor, the windows, the sleeping dog...I want it all! (Via arquitetura & construção)
