Everything is opening up and starting again, summer’s coming and across the country we are stirring. It’s a kickstart and everyone is feeling it, which is why colour has been such a big topic for us at Inside Out recently. In this month’s planning meetings, we were desperate for joy and colour, and I know we’ve found it in these pages. Highlights include inspiring projects from people who’ve put the fun back into decorating homes, such as US-based Cortney and Robert Novogratz, who we admire for their family-friendly colour work; Tamsin Johnson, whose stellar rise in the design world has been fun to watch; and three talented Australian designers with wildly different colour palettes – creative powerhouses Yasmine Saleh Ghoniem, Julia Green and Claire Delmar. But maybe my favourite is the…

My approach embraces what I call a ‘tactful disharmony’, where antiques and custom creations sit side by side, and where unexpected pieces, finishes and eras can merge to create unexpected yet always beautifully livable spaces. Explain how your style developed over the years and where it sits now It has evolved, but any evolution is always based on instinct. It’s hard to explain the whisperings of instinct. For the book, I asked myself: how do you account for that sense of contentment and peace when you know something just ‘feels right’? For me, the sense came with the realisation that my voice sounded strongest and at its most authentic in this arena [design], and every decision I made from that point felt natural. What kind of…

The type of homeowner who’s into designer furniture is a discerning one. Any piece to be purchased needs to be beautiful, well made, a conversation starter. Increasingly, the customers seeking this kind of furniture also expect that level of attention to extend to the piece’s sustainability. Designer furniture and lighting retailer Living Edge realised some time ago that quality is synonymous with sustainability – in this age of increased environmental awareness, quality alone isn’t going to cut it. Consumers want to engage with brands that align with their own, sustainably minded, personal values. “Sustainability isn’t just doing the right thing,” says Aidan Mawhinney, Living Edge’s CEO. “It’s about making furniture that follows best practices and pushes the boundaries in design and manufacturing. Longevity is intimately intertwined with quality.” The company’s sustainability strategy began…

Where to put it By the pool, on a balcony or a deck – just about anywhere with a great vantage point. What Tait loves about it The breathable marine-grade canvas and sling-style upholstery of the Zephyr Lounger keeps you cool and comfortable on a hot day. It’s the…
