Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 24 Autumn 2010 Contents 18 INSITE AUTUMN
COSY COOL. . . Our main coverline says it all this issue. We've brought together
a diverse selection of interiors from Western Australia, to Tasmania and France with real
'autumn retreat' appeal and a strong international edge (from p124). Each also exudes a
very real lifestyle vibe that's guaranteed to not only inspire you, but also reflect the natural
beauty of our landscape and the myriad ways to pay homage to those views and our unique
environment through where and how we live.
Also this issue, we bring you our 2010/11 directional trend report (from p102). The good
news? It's all about creating a 'home'. Think warming textures, traditional crafts reborn in
technology-driven design, your family heirlooms out of storage boxes and positioned
pride-of-place, and a homey vibe. But don't even think about throwing out your Patricia
Urquiola chair. This 'new home' has room for statement pieces -- just make sure they are
functional. 'No purpose, no point' is the new mantra for the discerning homewares-addict.
This mantra has also made its way into the garden (from p169). We feature two gardens
that are big on sophistication and useable space. For a long time, the outdoors has no
longer been a space to enjoy from the inside. Today, it's all about lifestyle potential. First
up, we step into a Cottesloe garden that takes its cue from the architecture around it to
bring the owners a seamless transition from indoors to out. We love the entertaining mecca
and how a pond has added another layer of decoration. Plus, we step into the kid-friendly
garden of one of Australia's top landscape designers. If you have children, this savvy space
is definitely one from which to steal some ideas.
Resident stylist Clare Ryan has served up some wonderful ideas for autumn. Be inspired by
her Hot Products (from p23): buys that take their hue from nature; animal figurines that are
guaranteed to add quirk to your interior; touch-me throws that are perfect for the sofa; and
home office pieces with plenty of to-the-manor-born chic. You will also find a roundup of
pieces with heritage and heart appeal (from p46), and the most covetable luxe products,
plus others that channel circles and dots (from p38).
You will also find all the regular sections -- our art exhibitions guide (40 must-see events,
so there's no excuse to be sitting home this season, p204), your roundup of the top antique
buys (it's the Year of the Tiger, so the Meiji-period sculpture is one to covet, from p190)
and all our regular trend and profile sections.
There is one change, however, that you will pick up this issue. And that is me. I have joined
the Insite team to bring you the best and the latest across anything and everything for the
home. I would like to thank the previous editor, Emma Wheater, for handing over the reins
to me and I look forward to continuing to bring you WA's premier interiors magazine. Enjoy.
GEORGINA WALSH Directions 2010/11,
p102, and Antiques News, p186
Fast becoming an Insite regular, Georgina covered
both ends of decorating -- emerging trends and
antiques -- for us. Best moment while writing this
issue? "Learning that interiors are becoming more
homey.. . and having Dutch clockmaker Jot Rijks
share his passion with me was also pretty special."
Favourite Perth homewares shop? "I love
Hunters and Collectors in Mosman Park for its
eclectic, vintage items, good tunes and a very cute
non-vintage pooch, who always manages to make
himself part of the furniture."
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. .. As design
evolves, so too do magazines. With that said, we
would love to hear from you on what you love about
the magazine and what you would like to see more
of. Plus, we would love to hear about homes you
feel should be featured in our pages and people
and places that we should cover and share with
the rest of the State. So, please drop editor Anna
Flanders a line at: email@example.com. We look
forward to hearing from you and forging ahead with
a reader--magazine partnership that will only bring
you even more inspiring reads and interiors.
ADAM McCULLOCH New York directions, p65
This is one name you are likely to know. Adam has
been a travel writer for seven years ("Which -- like
dog years -- equates to about 30 years!" he says), and
has had his work published throughout the world in
magazines, such as Men's Style, Conde Nast Traveller
and Surface magazine. He can add Insite to his CV
now that he has brought us up to date with the hottest
happenings in the Big Apple. Best part of writing
Directions New York? "Design is easy to take at face
value. Writing about it allows me to delve deeper into
the genius behind the first glance."
