Inside Out

Posted on Tue, 2 Oct 2012 by midcenturyjo

Hopping up and down with excitement. Squealing. Making little panting noises. Not a good look for a woman of a certain age but I can’t help it. It’s time for the new issue of Inside Out magazine. Out Wednesday. Even more exciting it’s the 100th issue and is packed full of lovely, lovely room porn. Lee Tran Lam, managing editor promises. (Actually “room porn” were my words not hers.) Once again Inside Out has shared with Desire to Inspire a few sneaky pics from one of the gorgeous homes inside their pages. You’ll recognise it of course. It’s the home of Steve and Helena Trupp of Empirical Style. Helen shared her own snaps of their cool apartment not long ago on the blog but I am lovin’ the shots in the magazine taken by photographer Armelle Habib and styled by Julia Green.

P.S. Don’t forget if you live outside Australia you don’t have to miss out on one of the best interiors magazines around. You can subscribe through Zinio.

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. This was the first weekend in about 4 months that I did not have something planned. It has been AWESOME and a welcomed change of pace. I’m going to continue to enjoy my weekend despite the fact that it’s going to be cold and rainy all day and I leave you with some photos from the latest issue of Heart Home mag. Have a good one!

To let ….

Looking for somewhere to rent? London, SE1 not too far from the Tate Modern, the Old Vic and the Young Vic. Walk to the city via the Millennium Bridge.

“This impeccably restored one-bedroom loft apartment with roof terrace is situated in the historic Ragged School, close to Borough Market. Set over two floors, the flat has all of the characteristics of a classic loft, including exposed brickwork, vaulted wooden ceilings and massive warehouse windows. Styled and furnished by the renowned photographer and stylist Zanna, it is in our opinion one of the most atmospheric apartments in central London.”

Amazing building, amazing space, amazing fit out. Industrial, rustic, quirky and fabulous. Furnished or unfurnished. (Furnished please…. love the old shop fittings and the wall of old cupboards gives me goosebumps.) Available immediately. I’d move in in a heart beat but I can’t afford the rent. £2,924 pcm/ £675 pw. If you rent it can I sleep on the couch?

Busy weekend

Posted on Sun, 9 Sep 2012 by KiM

I spent the day yesterday shopping with my family in Montreal for some fall clothes (perfect timing as it’s been HOT for 3 months and I woke up this morning to a drop by about 20 degrees C), so I didn’t have much time to get something ready for today, and I’ve got a busy day too shooting my new purchases for themourningcloak.com and another personal house tour from the Glebe House Tour which is coming up next weekend. While I wait for my husband to finish watching Formula 1 so he can shave my head (only the bottom half 🙂 ) and we can go get some breakfast, I managed to find some gorgeous photos courtesy of British lifestyle magazine Heart Home.

Thank gawd it’s Friday, mostly because it’s a warm and sunny 3 day weekend but also because this has not been a very good week (I’m a mess physically, with allergies, back problems that had me home from work yesterday so I could attend my first physio appointment, and now thanks to all this I’ve got a freaking throbbing headache). I thought I’d keep things simple today with photos from Quarto & Sala, the site I like to call the Brazilian Selby. I love peeking into the homes of normal folks…there’s no over-decorating or over-styling here.
