Verity Magdalino Vogue Living’s deputy editor joins the team after spending most of her career in London, working as an international trend specialist for the design industry. In this issue, Magdalino explores the future of kitchens and bathrooms, and speaks to the design stars of Instagram (page 193). “I love the entrepreneurial spirit of digital innovation — that a small design business in Tasmania can tap into a worldwide audience,” she says. “Decoding the success behind social media acclaim is intriguing. It’s ever-evolving with new heroes born every day.” Sean Fennessy Melbourne photographer Fennessy worked his magic in ‘Layers of Truth’ (page 55) and ‘Mondo Magnifico’ (page 92).

editor’s letter

“I’m sure that in years to come, design pundits will look back on today as a significant Blue Period.
