Inside Out

Ever since Inside Out magazine went monthly I've been in seventh heaven. After all you can never get too much of a good thing! Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent along a sneak peek into the new September issue.

The mag is out Thursday, and I've bundled up for you our cover story – it's about a couple who organised their Melbourne renovation from the Middle East (!), where they were based, via Skype and time-zone-coordinating correspondence with local architect Clare Cousins (pictured), who got the ball rolling and ensured the process was as hitch-free as possible by the time they landed back in Australia. You can see that all the organisation clearly paid off in these images, styled by Marsha Golemac and photographed by Brooke Holm.

Aussie readers can pick up their copy of the September 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.

The fisherman's cottage

I couldn't help myself. I had to revisit the generalist one more time. A 1940s waterfront cottage, an architect and a desire to recycle, reuse and celebrate the found instead of a rip it down, slap up something mega and new. My type of home filled with memories and little treasures. A place for family and friends to live life, share love and renew spirits. To find out who and why and where and how head to the generalist here.

(Thanks to the generalist team for the images!)

Behind the shutters

Take a stylist and her builder husband. To this creative mix add a lovely old house on the northern beaches of Sydney, furniture sourced here, there and everywhere and you have the perfect team when it comes to creative homemaking. With stunning photography by Simon Kenny for Content Agency it's an inspiring way to start the week on DTI. I'd love to take the credit but it's another fab story from the pages of the generalist. You can read more here. I promise it won't be the only one you'll read. Many many thanks to the crew at the generalist for sharing all these luscious images. I'm moving in I tell you. Moving in.

the generalist

We know you love blogs and online magazines. We know you love original content so we know you're going to love this. There's a new kid on the block and we're excited. "the generalist is an oasis of extraordinary spaces, places, design, decoration and the people behind them. Living in general. Homes in particular."  Houses, design, people and places. It's perfect. With access to the archives of the Content Agency, the generalist is a must read full of inspiring spaces like this South Fremantle home of artist Alessandra Rossi and her husband Piero Castellati, a building conservationist. The place is, as they say, their very own “work in progress” using alternative materials and building methods while still paying homage to the house’s original features.

A peek at a loft in Antwerp

This loft is the home of Jon & Masa of the duo behind the design studio LMBRJK (check out their stools - DROOL!). It's just a little peek. You'll have to go over to Coffeeklatch to see the rest. 

And for a bonus treat, check out designer Piet Hein Eek's workshop on ALL ITEMS LOADED (from the folks behind Coffeeklatch). More drooling!
