Inside Out is out

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2014 by midcenturyjo

I knew it was time. I had sweaty palms, a slight headache, a dry mouth. I was hanging out… for my favourite interiors magazine. I knew it was time for the latest edition of Inside Out when an email from Lee Tran Lam, Managing Editor arrived in my inbox. I knew it would be a sneak peek at one of the fabulous homes in the March issue. I just knew it. Here’s what she wrote,

It’s the weekend home of interior designer and stylist Kali Cavanagh – and with a CV like that, it’s unsurprising that it’s a beautiful, well-furnished space. It’s located in Daylesford and has a nice mix of age-worn industrial pieces. She’s also added lots of personal touches – courtesy of her toolbox and DIY-savviness. In the bathroom, there’s a vanity that’s unlike any I’ve ever seen before. “It was a desk,” she says. “I removed the legs, cut down the top and cut a hole for the sink then added one of the desk legs at the front.” She also transformed a set of drawers into another vanity, placing brass French mailbox name plates near the handles. (The stylist is Julia Green and photographer Armelle Habib.)

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


I love what a statement that framed flag makes in the bedroom above. Art is such a fun way to bring a graphic element into a space. If you’re looking for tips from interior designers on how to display art in your home, then check out this article.

sooo excited to get it tomorrow. U r right, that vanity is particularly spectacular, as is the rest of the house. Thanks for sharing the preview!!!!!!

Spectacular indeed! But what's with the bathtub in the bedroom? Why would any
one want that? I see it again and again, but I simply can't understand it

Wow really some great stuff there.

Looks so nice. Especially I love those hanging bulbs in the bedroom. The socket is often in the center of the ceiling but this way thanks to long cables the two bulbs hanging create a stylish result. Great and relaxed idea!

A friend of mine has stayed here and said it was amazing! I'm going to book a girls weekend soon. They have a website if you want to book a weekend there –

Love the mirror in the industrial bathroom. Anyone know where I can find one like that?
