Every cloud has a silver lining ... unless it's the Cloud House in Fitzroy North in Melbourne by McBride Charles Ryan. The Edwardian era facade is left relatively untouched out of respect to the existing streetscape. The old house's original interior has been painted white with a carpet of flowers providing the surprise. Linking the old and the new is a red box, the heart of the home, the kitchen. What opens beyond is a fantastical cloud shaped living area. No silver lining though. Warm timbers cocoon the space. Unexpected, child like but meticulously crafted.
What can we expect from the latest issue of Inside Out magazine? Fabulous homes and inspiration of course. Like the home of jewellery designer Megan Perkins. Or should I say her parents' home. That's right. She moved back in with her parents but when your oldies have such an amazing house (her dad actually built it) where's the problem.! Writer/stylist Natalie Walton and photographer Chris Warnes of Warnes & Walton take us inside this stunning family space.
Jo spread the love for French interior designer Joséphine Gintzburger a few times in the past (here, here and here) and I came across another one of her projects - an eclectic apartment in Le Marais. Only in this setting could a yellow chintzy floral sofa set actually look cute. Throw in a sleek red countertop, chandeliers, a turquoise Smeg and shower right next to the bed and you've got another quirky Joséphine space.
