Nothing gives me greater pleasure than dashing to the mailbox, seeing that my Inside Out mag has arrived and ripping open the plastic like Amanda would a man’s shirt on Melrose Place (wasn’t that the best 90s show ever?). This time around, there was even more excitement as the front cover revealed that copper was on the agenda for issue 107 – the ultimate metal of the moment! Let’s take a little squiz inside and drool my fave pages!

officeworks’ new martha stewart collection

P1130123

As a student at the International School of Colour and Design, it goes without saying that I’m at Officeworks as often as I am the coffee shop. What many of you might not realise, though, is that the store is more than just a place to pick up stationery supplies or print and copy documents. This new Martha Stewart range is the perfect example of how Officeworks is also your go-to destination for decorative storage. I’ve put my stylists skills to work on the new collection and here are the results!

my fave pages from the august real living

P1120926

Issue 90 of Real Living hit my doorstep last week and I’ve been soaking up the interiors goodness for the past few days. This issue was a standout not only because it featured my one true love (industrial decor), but because it showcased some amazing homes that are a little left-of-field. I am swooning all over this issue like a bald eagle. That is, if bald eagles do indeed swoon. I imagine they do. How else do they get prey?

10 creative finds you never got to see

I was struck down with a cold this week, which meant getting out and about to snap some creative finds was very much off the cards. Thankfully, though, I have an entire vault of photos from my adventures around the traps; which means you get to see 10 very gorgeous finds that never made it onto my usual top seven. On with the show…

1 | I love street art when it’s done well and this piece – that I came across from an adventure in Fitzroy last year – is just amazing. I swear when I purchase a house, I want to find a street artist who can come and create something like this for me on a wall in my backyard. I know graffiti isn’t for everyone, but I love the urban and industrial nature of it. Please let me know if you’re aware of an artist who could do this for me!

an exclusive look inside the aparttment

P1110812

The Sydney CBD is inundated with places to eat and bars to drink at, but what’s been missing for quite a while is the presence of boutique stores you usually find scattered about the Eastern Suburbs (or down in Melbourne, for that matter). Things changed very recently when The Aparttment opened its doors, giving city dwellers the chance to immerse themselves in one-of-a-kind clothing, homewares, art and accessories. Brace yourselves, Creatives, this one’s a goodie!

decorator heaven at oz design moore park

P1090953

Where does one start when it comes to¬†describing¬†Oz Design? While it’s been around as long as I have (30 years and still doesn’t look a day over 25!), in recent times it’s multiplied its amazement factor. When I walked into the Moore Park store for my exclusive tour, I almost needed the store manager, Joe, to slap me across the face to wake me out of my design-induced coma; the current range is that phenomenal.
