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)

Inside Out is out and it's early

Don't you love it when the next issue of your favourite magazine is about to hit the shelves? I guess what's even better is when it pops up early! Lee Tran Lam, Managing editor ofInside Out magazine emailed with a tasty tidbit from the April issue.

"I hope you don't mind if I share with you the colourful home of a photographer whose work has featured on your great blog before. Her name is Jenny Brandt, she's from Sweden, and of course, she's a talented multitasker – she's a blogger and illustrator, too. Not only does she know how to zip through her to-do list, she also has overhauled an originally dilapidated house – with its cracked façade and plastic carpet – and turned it into something vibrant and welcoming. (Adding lots of windows and colour really helped! Her dad also gets credit for painting duty – he turned the dining table an electric coat of purple.) The graphic pink-and-white pattern that jolts through one room is pretty cool, too. 

The styling is by Kicki Wieslander and, of course, Jenny took the great photos. They appear in our new April edition (surprise surprise, it's the colour issue – with a double hit of colour on the cover, too; in fact, there are two covers!)."

 

Love Jenny's home! Love the two covers! I've seen inside the latest issue and I love it all! a kaleidoscope of colour! Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the April Inside Out now. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though because you can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play and the Apple Newsstand.

I'm back

Hey everyone. My trip to Mexico sadly came to an end Thursday and I have returned to my reality of frigid cold and snowstorms. How I miss cloudless skies, HOT temperatures and being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. Oh - and the food. Ah mah gawd I ate well. So while I scramble to get my life back in order before the work week begins, here is a quick post on a home I found on Nuevo Estilo (bummed I could not find this mag on my travels). It is located in Paris and is the home/art gallery of Valerie de Marotte and Vicenç Boned of Galeria Tagomago. Stunning architecture, spacious, and just the right amount of eclecticism.
