Yes folks, it appears to be new magazine issue season. One of my online favourites (ok, I seem to have alot of favourites) is Heart Home magazine from the UK and their summer issue is coming online Thursday. They sent over some big juicy photos for me to share with you all as a little preview. Enjoy!

There are the special little things in life that fill a slow rainy day (or a crazy busy day why won’t it SLOW DOWN… ooops sorry). Little things that make me happy. A good magazine is one of them. And Inside Out is a great magazine. I always get a wee bit over excited when an email from managing editor Lee Tran Lam is sitting in my box. Do we want to see a house? Yes please!
“It’s from our new Jul/Aug issue and it’s of a makeover of a Dutch farmhouse. The revamp included lots of upcycling – and in fact, the floor of the top storey is made of old cheeseboards! The styling is by Studio Viva Vida of The Netherlands and the photography is by Jean-Marc Wullschleger.”
Yeah! There are even pictures that didn’t make it into the magazine after the jump. Bonus! Aussie readers will of course be heading to the newsagents to pick up their copy out today. (That’s if you don’t already subscribe.) Don’t fret if you aren’t in Australia though because you can read along on Zinio, Google Play and the Apple Newsstand!
Inspired by the über cool (or should that be très cool 😉 interiors of the new Hôtel Paradis in Paris. With a quirky mix of vintage, midcentury and modern, the rooms in the 3 star boutique hotel designed by Chzon are layered with colour and pattern. Funky and fun and very reasonably priced. After all staying in style shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’ll take the room with the view thanks!
A big thanks to Åsa for sending us the link to this INSANE flat for sale in Helsingborg, southern Sweden. This is so atypical of what Swedes do to their homes. We all know they LOVE white…and there is not one spec of white in this apartment (with the exception of the tub and toilet). It must take special people to come up with this, and be able to live here day after day. I sure as hell could not. I would lose my freaking mind. It’s just so bizarre. Good luck selling this place!
A fun and colourful office design by Argentinian architect Agustina Bottinelli of AB I Arquitectos Asociados. Slashes of red, piano key stairs, old school video games, funky pop furniture, chickens and a toilet that will definitely be well read. (Don’t ask me how it was done. Perhaps Agustina can let us know.) Definitely for a creative industry. I wonder if they actually get any work done?
