The hidden kitchen

Posted on Wed, 20 Jan 2016 by midcenturyjo

Is it a minimalist’s dream kitchen or the lazy cook’s ultimate “shove the mess behind the door” daydream? Either way this ultra sleek, ultra chic Sydney kitchen is a standout for not standing out. The precision joinery is blowing my mind. The Hidden Kitchen by Minosa Design.

It’s that time again. Matilda Duffecy, Social and Senior Editor at Inside Out, has sent over a few teasers from the pages of February’s issue out tomorrow.

Our new February issue drops tomorrow and we love it! This edition is actually our expert issue, and we’re really excited to share our renovation dream team with our audience. We’ve invited some impressive experts to provide guidance on everything from sustainability, to joinery, to paint colour and more! Our cover home is that of star fashion designer Arabella Ramsay. It’s a rammed-earth house on the coast and it’s really unique – totally beautiful! Cover styling is by Julia Green and Noël Coughlan. Photography is by Armelle Habib.

Our very clever market editor Joseph Gardner has styled the ‘best buys: sculptural vases’ so elegantly. We’re loving the mid-century appeal of that sideboard, too! It was photographed by Craig Wall.

This month, our former style editor, Vanessa Colyer Tay, has targeted a feature towards “nail-free” decorating. Not only are the images stunning, but it’s also filled with tips for updating your home without leaving mark on the walls – perfect for renters! Sam McAdam-Cooper was the photographer for this shoot.

The Dream it. Design it. Do it. feature shares a mother/daughter duo’s renovation of a Melbourne house to sell. They’ve done such a fantastic job! Styling is by Marsha Golemac and photography by Brooke Holm.

Oh I have serious credenza and vase envy going on! Can’t wait to see more in this month’s issue out tomorrow. Don’t fret if you aren’t in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

A bit more pale pink inspiration

Pale pink walls

Posted on Tue, 19 Jan 2016 by KiM

I have been wondering for months what to do with my dining room. Dark? Bright? Wallpaper? I don’t have very good recent photos because I hate the room – this one is the most recent that shows a decent amount of the space. (The floors are now stained grey!)  Nothing has really stood out until I suddenly started thinking about pale pink. Then I started thinking about pale pink with dark grey trim. Then I started getting very excited. I am pretty sure pale pink is the route I want to take with the walls (trim will probably just be the same colour or a shade darker so it’s not too choppy, and the doors maybe the black blue of the foyer…and not sure about the ceiling). I have been eyeballing Farrow & Ball‘s Pink Ground, Setting Plaster and Calamine. I think Pink Ground on walls and Setting Plaster on trim could be really gorgeous. I have sent a request for samples so those are on the way. In the meantime, I went looking for inspiration and found all kinds of pretty pinks. And based on the first 2 photos, I think I need heavy velvet burgundy drapes.
