Inside Out and colour, colour and more colour

Inside Out hits the newstands tomorrow and yes Managaing Editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us a sneak peek but what a house! Colour overload. Makes me want to do my happy dance. I'll let Lee Tran tell you a little more about this New Zealand gem.

"I've got some eye-catching pixels from the new issue of the magazine, out Thursday, and they're from a home that definitely hunts out your attention!he house belongs to designer Alex Fulton and was styled by LeeAnn Yare and photographed by Larnie Nicolson. I love how Alex's style is completely unbound and each room has a one-of-a-kind feel – such as the green wallpaper that flourishes all across the surface of her living room, and the sofa that matches its well-cultivated and growing patterns! There's also her daughter Isla's room, which Alex has given a confetti-like scatter of graphics, by applying stationery spots on the walls. And in the bathroom, she 'serves' a fruit salad above the sink and decorates a lamp with an upside-down pendant. This is a home that's shot through with original idea after original idea."

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

Working on a Saturday

Say it loud.
Say it clear.
Saturday at work?
I don't want to be here!

Unless of course it the workplace looks like this. If you have to go in go into something stylish. South Loft, an Auckland office for economists by Fearon Hay Architects.

Apartment for a writer

It's called an apartment for a writer. Perhaps an apartment for an observer. For someone who reflects on their surrounds. Holds a mirror to the world and records, writes. Or perhaps is vain? Cares about looks and style. No that would be more likely if the mirror lined the desk space. Either way I'm smitten by this clever storage by Auckland based Cheshire Architects.

Hole in the wall

Can't get by without it and there is nowhere better to feed my addiction than a hip hole in the wall. Coffee and a dose of cool. Nice Day, a 7 sqm down a laneway in Auckland's CBD by Material Creative.
