Vogue Living

Vogue Living March - April 2015

Vogue Living tells stories that engage, fascinate and excite, weaving together a myriad of influences that inspire our lives, be it cultural trends, arts and architecture, a new secret find around the corner, a far flung destination, or a privileged glimpse into a private and compelling world. Interiors, spaces and places, here or there, come vividly to life through their inhabitants and the lens of the camera. Beauty is paramount.

Life can be unpredictable for sure, but sometimes the curve balls it throws are precious. Sitting in my London office almost 20 years ago, I loved the easy, fresh-faced authority of the Australian magazines that landed on my desk. It was always a sunny moment when air-freighted copies of Vogue Living arrived. It’s a fair call to say that those seductive magazines lured me to these shores. The siren song, not of flesh and blood or sun and surf, but of print and paper. Two decades later I feel privileged (and not without a touch of performance anxiety) to sit in the editor’s chair of a magazine I’ve admired for almost half my life. I must thank my predecessor, Victoria Carey, for crafting Vogue Living so perfectly and for passing…

“I wanted a SPACE people are inspired by, so if they don’t WALK OUT with SOMETHING, they walk out with an idea” What drives designer and stylist Sibella Court is not a just-finished design in all of its polished perfection. It’s the small histories behind each object; how they came to be and how they have been used and enjoyed since their conception. Having moved her Sydney store from Paddington to St Peters, The Society Inc reflects these ideas — old objects matched with new; layers of fabric, cushions and unfinished surfaces all brought together in a way that feels effortless and comfortable. “I always use history as the base for my interiors,” says Court. “Every object that I surround myself with, at home particularly, should make me recall where I was…

Adventures IN CORAL OUR UNDERWATER JEWELS RISE TO THE SURFACE IN VIVID TRIBUTE. At the bottom of the Coral Sea in Queensland, millions of polyps dance hand-in-hand in tightknit colonies to form a giant, glowing, fantastical rainbow. The Great Barrier Reef is, in fact, Mother Nature’s masterpiece — and the delicate coral forms have danced their way onto textiles with whimsical results at Busatti. Marjorie Skouras’s chair pays tribute to the bold side of reef design while fashion’s Mary Katrantzou hones in on its intricacy with delicate motifs. The creatures that live in such reefs are no less poetically fashioned, and their forms are honoured in chandeliers and jewellery. It’s called sea-lifestyle, a look inspired by the inhabitants of one of the world’s most beautiful homes. For more information on the products…
