from the editor: stylists at work

I have been working on this beautiful magazine for many years, but I am still in awe of the art of styling. Sure, I know what I love and what I don’t, and have put together a welcoming home that works for my family, yet I constantly marvel at how our stylists can bring together a room with such ease.

designer’s diary: greg natale

SYDNEYSIDER “I really love this Sydney Ball painting (left). He was a real pioneer in hard-edged minimalism – unfortunately he passed away last year. I just think this is such a unique piece.

I never thought it would”~ Greg Natale street style “The artwork above my bed is by RETNA, a street artist from LA. He does all these big murals. I even have a RETNA rug in the office.
