Inside Out

Posted on Wed, 24 Jun 2015 by midcenturyjo


Every month an email arrives from Inside Out magazine’s Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam and every month I get excited. The sneak peeks from inside the latest issue of the magazine are always amazing. Today’s is no different. It’s winter down under and it’s just a little grey and chilly. Inside Out’s antidote to the cold-weather blues is a cheery home. As Lee Tran explains…

“I feel like the house belonging to The Family Love Tree’s Katie Graham is a perfect example of this. It’s so vibrant and instantly jumpstarts a good mood. It appears in our July issue and definitely brightens our pages! When her family moved into the home , the 1970s bungalow was “quite Liberace” and they needed to dial it down a bit. I think they’ve done a fantastic job – especially with the exuberant wallpapers. Katie is such a wallpaper fan that she managed to sneak one behind the kitchen splashback, too (despite people telling her it was impossible)! She also managed to pull off the renovation in seven weeks, too – which is pretty impressive.”

Love the wallpaper, the Falcon chair, the West German and Bitossi pottery, the black wall and those dining chairs. Hang it I’m moving in. Styling for the story is by Rachel Vigor, photography by Derek Swalwell. Can’t wait to see more in the July issue out Thursday. Don’t fret if you aren’t in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

“Located in the Edgemoor neighborhood in Bethesda, Maryland, this new home draws influence from the Bauhaus movement. Clean crisp spaces with oversized steel doors and windows pull the outside in to create spaces filled with light and warmth.”
