That’s 150 times the Inside Out team has said, “Yep, this is our favourite home in the issue – let’s put it on the cover.” The 150th time we’ve read every page, checked every price, lovingly chosen every image, knowing it was the very best we could do this month. Think that’s worth celebrating? I do! With that in mind, we decided to throw ourselves a little party, and invited as many of our friends as possible. Why not? We had some of our longest-standing stylists, including Jason Grant and Claire Delmar; some of our newer recruits, interior experts Lisa Koehler and Shannon Vos; those who’ve created some of our favourite stories over the years, including photographer…

MJP Studio ‘Wedge’ coat stand DESIGNER: Matt Pearson Adelaide-based designer/maker Matt is passionate about timber and woodworking. “I specialise in timber, especially American timbers, which have amazing visual and working characteristics,” he says. “I also like to bring in other materials, such as steel, brass and leather.” As such, his striking Wedge coat stand features an American oak frame on a powder-coated steel base.
