Inside Out

October's issue of Inside Out hits the stands on Thursday and I'm excited. Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us not one but two sneak peeks.

... the home of Table Tonic blogger and shop owner Louise Bell and her architect husband Graeme Bell. It's located on Sydney's northern beaches and is a modernist design by architect Loyal Alexander, who originally lived there. By the time that Graeme came across the home, four families had lived there since. "They were marketing it as a 'knock-it-down-and-build-two', which horrified us," said Graeme Bell. Luckily, his family moved in and saved that from happening. Readers will be able to visit this residence on Wednesday October 29, when it hosts our latest 'Open For Inspection' house tour, as led by editor Claire Bradley and ISCD educator and our panel's style expert Lisa Koehler. Tickets will be available at Moshtix from Thursday. Styling by Jason Grant and photography by Harold David.

Australian readers can pick up their copy of the October Inside Out on Thursday. Not in Australia? You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

Eccentric old Europe

When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.

An artist's home and gallery

I had to share this home as well from Urbis Magazine. It is a 1920's 80m2 bungalow in Island Bay, Wellington, and is the home and gallery of artist Max Patté. it is quite clear, from the moment you set foot on the property, that Max is a sculptor. It is quaint and quirky and cool - my kind of home.

Dark and dreamy

I found this house on Urbis Magazine's website and fell in love immediately. It's dark and modern (but not overly) with lots of beautiful wood, marble and tile used throughout. It is a small 1860's worker's cottage from the front, now a guest house and man cave, and a glorious, dark-stained barn-like structure at the rear of the property. It is the best of both worlds - old and new combined. You can read more about it here. (New addition by Bureaux Limited, photos by Simon Devitt)

P.S. Sorry, no pet post today. I was too low on entries. :(
