from the editor: laundry love

When my eldest sister renovated her home a few years ago, the laundry was never going to be just an afterthought. The space, designed by our other sister, who’s an architect, was one of the most talked about and dissected – from its size and location to its precise, family-friendly lay-out. And it was big. When I first saw those initial plans, I thought it might have been a slight case of laundry obsession. But now, every time I walk into that light and bright room, with its white floor-to-ceiling cupboards hiding a multitude of family life busyness, and its spacious shower in the corner, I think: “Yes. Inspired decision, sisters.” There’s something about a well-designed laundry that gets the heart racing. It may be the last place on earth you’d…

When you think of vinyl flooring, do you get flashbacks to your nanna’s 1960s-era kitchen? It might surprise you to learn that vinyl flooring is still in homes today, but not as you remember it. Modern luxury vinyl tiling (LVT) is stylish, low-maintenance and easy to install, and is a game changer in flooring.

FAMED ACROSS THE WORLD for its iconic white sand beach, Bondi doesn’t exactly fly under the radar – but while visitors swoon over the stunning scenery and cafe culture, the scope of creative makers and stylish stores on offer shouldn’t be overlooked. 1 | UASHMAMA Housed in prime real estate just seconds from the sea, the Uashmama store has built up a large local demand for its unique paper homewares. Founder Casey Languillon discovered the hand-crafted creations on holiday in Tuscany and was determined to bring them home. “I saw these beautiful, organic-looking paper bags where they served breakfast at the B&B,” says Casey. It didn’t take her long to track down the supplier – Marco Marconi, a father of four who made the bags himself. Today, Casey and the Marconi family…

all on deck

This heavenly Hamptons-style house with wraparound decking was built for a growing family with three energetic little boys. It was designed to take on the rigours of family life and the Australian climate, all while retaining its good looks. The owners chose not to use timber for the deck but HardieDeck, a fibre cement decking material that’s built to last. Unlike timber, HardieDeck is resistant to damage from moisture and termites, and when the sun beats down you can rely on HardieDeck™ not to warp or split. With concealed screws and solid, splinter-free boards, HardieDeck feels smooth and safe under bare feet, so the whole family can walk, play and run in comfort. It’s an ideal choice around spas and pools where sun and regular soaking from pool water can…
