celebrate the details that make us all different

Don’t you love a good nosy poke into someone else’s home? If you’re reading this, I suspect you do. After all, that’s what we showcase every month! Choosing the homes for each issue is one of my favourite parts of this job, and what I find endlessly fascinating is how unique each and every one is. Two living spaces may have the same sofa, coffee table and colour scheme, but by the time you’ve added the rug and books, and all the bits and bobs, you have something altogether different. You say potato, and all that. The perfect example of how the small details make all the difference is our ‘One kitchen two ways’ feature on page 128. In this small kitchen, the framework stays the same, while the colour palette…

what’s on our radar

TRENDING What’s in… terrazzo This material’s hard-wearing charm gives it a fresh appeal. Serax has released a selection of smart platters made from the composite stone, which is a mix of marble, granite and quartz. Serax terrazzo platters, from $80 each, The Minimalist, theminimalist.com.au. On its way out dip-dye There was a time when every piece of furniture had a footprint in a different colour, but this mismatching look might be ready for a break. CULT CLASSIC ZANOTTA ‘THROW-AWAY’ SOFA BY WILLIE LANDELS The form: A blocky seating collection made from polyurethane foam.

‘Split’ desk DESIGNER: Rhys Cooper Perfecting the kiln temperature has a lot to do with the success of Rhys’s ‘Split’ desk. Take a closer look and you’ll notice that the black surface is Corian, which had its own set of challenges attached to it. “Working with a material I’m unfamiliar with is always a steep learning curve,” says Rhys, who is from New South Wales and now based in Adelaide. “The Corian is heated in a kiln, and once it reaches the specified temperature, it’s removed and slumped over a mould.” Melding the man-made material (the desk is also available in white) with the timber elements – all crafted by hand – gives ‘Split’ its sculptural look, but Rhys also works in practical smarts: “It incorporates cable management, book display and partitioned areas…

Clare (pictured, on right), were you and Joy creative as kids? Yes, we were always cutting, sticking and sewing. We spent most of our primary-school years living in Papua New Guinea where we didn’t have a TV. Instead, our very artistic mum used to get us involved in lino printing, tie-dyeing or just playing shops with little things we had made. We kept experimenting with different mediums as we grew up and just about always have a project on the go – although neither of us have ever been good at knitting. Can you describe what you make and how you came across this way of being creative? Our current collections involve watercolouring hand-cut paper feathers and flowers. We’re great experimenters and most of our designs come from brainstorming, lots of…

Lisa Koehler is the interior stylist on our renovation specialists panel (for more on the panel, turn to page 122). Here, she details how to choose your living area furniture Q We are looking at buying all-new furniture for our lounge. What should we buy first to base everything else around – rug, art or couch? @hellolynnec via Instagram Start with the most expensive piece – the sofa! A tip before buying the lounge: ensure its palette works with the tones of your living zone’s wall and floor. Good classic options include the ‘Errol’ three-seater sofa from Jardan (pictured, $6200, jardan.com.au) or ‘Signature’ three-seater sofa in Attache Nutmeg from Freedom ($1499, freedom.com.au). Then build everything around your couch’s colour and style. After selecting your coffee table and side tables, consider the entertainment…
