IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT START TO THE YEAR, but in true Aussie style, we’ve banded together to support each other however we can. Here at Bauer Media, the magazines have teamed up to launch a company-wide initiative called Rebuild Our Towns, in light of the devastating bushfires. It’s a website where each week we will focus on an affected area, highlighting what has happened there and what the community can do to support the regeneration process. It’s not necessarily about donations of money, but rather, sending books, educational games and playground equipment to schools, or visiting the shops, tourism and hospitality businesses that are open and in need of our patronage. Head to Rebuildourtowns.com.au to find out more, and don’t forget to check back weekly. Conscious of the fact that we…

happy place

bless this mess Bright, pillowy linens and a jumble of patterned cushions are the antidote to an unmade bed. After all, weekends are better spent cosying up with coffee and a good book. creature comforts Art, photos, trinkets you’ve had “since forever” and flowers you just couldn’t resist… these things all make a home feel loved. So too can the right furniture. The trick is to choose items, such as sofas, with the same care you take when buying a bed. A sofa should be the kind of place you want to take naps and crash on after a long day, with enough room to squeeze in lots of friends. photography assistant christoherriot | styling assistants katelincoln; krystelrobinson | hair & make-up teneille sorgiovanni…

BEFORE SOCIAL MEDIA, there was Slim Aarons. A New Yorker armed with charisma and a camera, Slim spent the mid-20th century documenting the never-before-seen lives of celebrities and socialites in their Mediterranean holiday homes and behind the scenes of Beverly Hills afterparties. His famous subjects and friends – it’s impossible to list them without name-dropping: Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe – granted him access to their rarefied social circles and posed in front of his lens without make-up artists, artificial lights or airbrushing. But Slim’s day to day wasn’t always châteaus and Champagne. Born George Allen Aarons, Slim trained as a photographer in the army. His time on the battlefield gave him the opportunity to work with well-known photojournalists and a taste of life abroad, but having witnessed…
