editor’s letter

There are so many elements involved in renovating and decorating and we try to zoom in on most of them throughout the year. This issue, we are diving deep into bathrooms. I believe these parts of the house can be life changing… introducing a beautiful bath, a wall tiled with personality or a transformative louvred window to invite your garden into your wet zone will create a personal retreat that can make you fall in love with your house again. But of course, those bathrooms can be expensive and those design decisions generally stick. Which is why we’ve done some of the planning for you, with a timeline, lots of beautiful new bathroom ideas to get you started, and an edit of the best tiles around right now – it’s pretty…

tali roth

The week after finishing her interior-design degree in 2013, Melbourne-born Tali Roth was on a plane to New York with her husband Marcus and just $3000 in the bank. “I had a few interviews when I arrived but didn’t get a single job offer. To be honest though, I couldn’t really imagine sitting at a computer all day among a sea of designers,” says Tali, who also has a background in psychology and fashion.
