Light and bright. The whitest of whites, the palest of woods. Here are a few projects from Melbourne-based interior design firm Bicker. Where subdued colour palettes and textures create a tranquil, relaxed modernist vibe.
There is an exuberance, a riot of colour, pattern and texture that defines Los Angeles based interior designer Betsy Burnham’s work. In this house though, dark wood and black framed steel and glass windows and doors anchor an uncharacteristic neutral palette. Colour is expressed subtly in public areas while in the private bedroom and bathroom areas it makes a playful return. An eclectic style is perhaps best described as Rajasthan meets Myanmar meets Moroccan and Spanish Mission. An exotic yet elegant and serene house. Mt. Olympus by Burnham Design.
Polar opposites of the previous home, this beach house is ultra-modern where the other was traditional. Somewhat OTT in its sheer expanse of space, I appreciate that the interior has earthy, natural elements to remind you of the location, with gorgeous views of the Atlantic ocean. Another dream project by Sawyer | Berson.
This is everything a luxurious beach house should be. Located on the dunes of East Hampton, this shingle style beach house is nothing but neutral and perfect for ocean-side living, with striking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Wainscott Pond. Off white, some more off white and then just a bit more off white, the spaces evoke a tranquil energy with a casual, natural vibe. Architecture and landscape design by Sawyer | Berson.

I always love the little sneak peeks inside my favourite magazine that Matilda Duffercy, Senior and Social Editor of Inside Out magazine, sends our way each month. September’s Issue, out tomorrow, looks amazing! I’ll let Matilda take it from here.
Spring has almost sprung here and the issue is all about fresh ideas for your renovation, with a 17-page outdoor special to boot. The cover alone brings a little of the outdoors inside, with soft tones and textures making this living zone instantly inviting. The whole home is really special – from the design-savvy kitchen to the considered palette enlivened by the homeowner’s favourite tone – emerald green. Cover styling by Heather Nette King. Cover photography by Derek Swalwell.
I have included a shot of another brilliant home from the issue. The Sydney terrace was renovated in keeping with its heritage, but in a style that speaks to contemporary design. All in all, the home is totally wishlist. Styling by Claire Delmar. Photography by Felix Forest. (It’s actually one of Inside Out’s Open For Inspection homes and here’s the video tour – Jo.)
It wouldn’t be spring without a bit of bloom adoration! A beautiful feature styled by Matt Page, with floral styling by Caitlin Melling highlights lots of ways to display the season’s best as well as a few tips for success. Photography by Sam McAdam-Cooper.
We’re about to celebrate Father’s Day, and we’ve whipped up a feast fit for a king! Here are some banoffee pavlovas, that are sure to pull a crowd long after Father’s Day ends. Styling by Alicia Sciberras . Food styling by Kristen Wilson. Photography by Sam McAdam-Cooper. Production by Mia Daminato.
I hope you enjoy the new issue – Ii really love this one.
