Nathan Burkett extras

I don’t think I tortured myself enough with the last post, so here are a few more outdoor spaces by landscape designer Nathan Burkett.

Last night in Ottawa it was -15 C with the windchill. And Jo is melting in 40 C heat. While we both bitch, complain and suffer, this outdoor space is exactly where I want to be right now. It is modern and sleek and such a perfect hangout for enjoying beautiful weather. I would give anything to be able to enjoy the outdoors more than 4-5 months a year. Thank you landscape designer Nathan Burkett (based in Melbourne) for making me want to cry.  

Eating in, eating out

Inspiration for eating in from a fab photo of somewhere to eat out. I’m stealing ideas for my kitchen redo from the portfolio of photographer Kristofer Johnsson… again.

Has a whole month passed by already since the last issue of my favourite magazine, Inside Out? Really? I would not have believed it until the email from Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam popped into my in box.

This is from the cover story of our December issue, which comes out on Thursday. It features the home of Debbie and Eugene Tan, the very sweet couple who operate the immensely popular Aquabumps blog. Given the surging waves and sundazed shots that feature on their site, it’s no surprise that they live at Bondi Beach. The influence on the home, though, comes from Bali, where the pair got married. The interiors and outdoor areas cross over in seamless ways and, let’s just say that there’s no shortage of vitamin D flowing through their house! You may find yourself with a tan after looking at their residence. This light and bright home is definitely worth putting on your wish list! Styling by Jason Grant. Photography by Grace Cassio.

Oh I’m in love. It’s like summer has finally arrived. Don’t worry if you can’t pick up a copy of the magazine on Thursday. You can also download it digitally via Zinio, Google PlayApple Newsstand and Nook.

Old and new

Respectfully reinventing an exterior. In keeping with the theme of my previous post, Toronto’s Drew Mandel Architects did a wonderful job here.
