unleash the inner cheer, peeps, it’s christmas time!

Well, what do you know? It’s nearly Christmas again! Earlier this year, I saw a funny post on Facebook declaring that winter had “caught Australia by surprise for the 227th time”. It made me laugh. I think that’s what Christmas does to most of us every year. Even better, many of us bemoan the fact that the department stores and retailers in general are bringing out the decorations earlier and earlier, and yet we still get flustered right at the December 18 mark. Anyway, the point is, I know this is our November issue, and is therefore coming at Christmas a little sooner than you might expect, but we’re here to help! To inspire and get you all excited about creating some beautiful new decorations, turn to page 77. Or, if…

TRENDING What’s in… rattan As signalled by several pieces at Milan Furniture Fair, this classic look is getting a revival. ‘The Iconic’ sideboard by Kira & Kira, $2950, Urban Couture, urbancouture.com.au. On its way out copper After being overexposed in homewares and furniture designs for the past few years, it’s nice to see some other precious metals sneaking in. CULT CLASSIC ‘SAXE’ FOLDING CHAIR BY MOGENS LASSEN The form: A folding timber lounge chair with leather sling. What makes it special: Designed by Danish architect Mogens Lassen, the ‘Saxe’ chair is a beautifully detailed and delicate expression of the folding chair genre.

Iversen, the chair has been reissued through By Lassen, the company set up by Lassen’s grandson and great-granddaughter. Featuring studs…

Beth Hoeckel for AHD Paper Co. DESIGNER: Beth Hoeckel Despite the fact that artist and designer Beth Hoeckel creates the artworks for her cards in Baltimore, USA, the hyper-real scapes are unlike anything on this planet. While her artworks, which start as collages, are inspired by “the simple yet exquisite wonders of nature around us”, Beth manages to capture a striking perspective with a bit of celestial stardust scattered through. “They are like a fantasy world, but one not unlike the real world – just slightly more surreal; like an enhanced reality,” says Beth. The range of cards marks a collaboration between Beth and Chris and Kara Town of AHD Paper Co. in Adelaide, with Beth’s designs joining a hub of creative card options. $5.95 each, ahdpaperco.com. Fluid Ink Letterpress DESIGNER: Davina Farinola The craft of letterpress…

In Shelter , you talk to people who live in one-of-a-kind dwellings: an apple orchard hut, a butter factory and more. What was the most unusual home you came across? Photographer Bill Moseley and artist Genevieve Carroll’s residence in the former gold rush village of Hill End, NSW. The home hadn’t been lived in for more than 50 years and, with the help of friends in the village, Bill and Genevieve rebuilt a crumbling ruin. It’s a hive of separate buildings, which are all nestled very close to one another. You meet a lot of memorable characters – was there anyone who stayed with you, long after you met? Most people have stayed with me. I think when you are welcomed into someone’s home, guards are let down and true…
