I’m so super excited to be introducing you to our new spin-off magazine called Planted, showcasing the latest in plant-related products and trends, and ideas for stylish, urban outdoor spaces.
Planted magazine is not just about plants – it’s about how we live inside and out, with greenery enhancing our everyday lives. We showcase the very best creations to do that – whether it’s beautiful planters, contemporary outdoor furniture, glamorous garden tools, fun beach accessories or spaces made modish by plants. I wanted to share a little taste of what's inside this brand new issue, available for pre-order now in our online shop (for a late November delivery), and in newsagents December 5. I’m going to see how Planted is received, and hopefully it will be produced 1-2 times each year, depending on its popularity.
Gracing our front cover, is super stylist Julia Green pictured at her own home. I love the vertical garden created by Pippi’s Plants out on her deck. It’s an effective way to make an ordinary wall, extraordinary.
Another highlight in this issue is Nicola’s balcony with killer Melbourne views (you can’t see the view in this image above - but trust me, it’s amazing). Nicola runs homewares brand Luum, and you may recognise her daybed, cushions and painted pots in this image.
This issue also explores three hot plant trends - succulents (pictured above), plants with black foliage and tropical delights. Plus there’s a tonne of awesome products to help showcase your plants, whether that’s inside or out, and also plenty of finds to beautify your outdoor space.
Rupert Smith’s industrial loft in Cape Town (pictured above) has been transformed into a lush oasis with an abundance of indoor foliage. This home proves that even if you don’t have an outdoor space, it’s still possible to create a connection to the outdoors by bringing in fresh foliage and an abundance of indoor plants.
Let me introduce you to George & Willy. Two New Zealand lads, designing and making products that are simple, but timeless and functional too.
The idea for George and Willy’s popular Studio Roller (pictured above) was born after the pair stumbled upon an old roll of butcher’s paper, while rummaging through their Granddad’s boat shed. They created a simple wall bracket to hold and seamlessly dispense the paper, and it quickly became their main instrument for brainstorming ideas and making lists. After visitors to the workshop continued to request a roller for themselves, George and Willy developed the concept into a product for others.
Simple, functional and designed to last, the Studio Roller and petite Daily Roller (pictured opposite) exist to suit varying needs – whether it’s to write menus and specials, sketch plans or write notes, these products are an innovative way to display information in your home, office, or café. Designed to suit universal kraft rolls available at local packaging suppliers.
Their other products are as equally charming - the Bang Bang pegboard, String & Washer envelopes, steel peg, round sign, Industrial clothing rack, and Draughtsman table are just a few highlights from their range (all pictured in this post). Thankfully all of their products can be shipped worldwide. Click here to shop their range.
Available now for pre-order, Adore Home’s Endless Summer edition is packed with coastal-style homes, outdoor spaces, tropical entertaining ideas and products, and the hottest trends to see you through the warmer months.
Our Summer edition is set to hit newsagents stands December 1 - pencil it into your diary - it’s going to be a goodie. Here’s a little taste of what’s in the new edition (it’s a real stunner!). Let’s begin with our amazing front cover home on the Gold Coast, belonging to Sophie Bell. with lots of bright, natural light; white floors and walls, and seriously beautiful décor this home tour is a must-read. Her dining room is also pictured above.
Eve Gunson’s inner-city abode – with its lush bamboo-screened courtyard and tropical garden views from the master bathroom (pictured above) – has an unbelievably tranquil feeling. It’s hard to believe her home is situated in the hub of Melbourne, and not in far-north, tropical Queensland!
For fans of Three Birds Renovations, we have their latest reno in this issue – one close to their designer, Bonnie’s heart. You simply must check out this amazing home tour – their best to date (bathroom pictured above is just one of the gorgeous spaces in this home).
Looking for tropical party inspiration? Interior styling and staging business, Alida and Miller recently played host to a sexy and colourful Cuban-inspired lunch in Bangalow and we’ve showcased some of the gorgeous photographs from the event in this new issue. How fun is that cocktail bar set-up (pictured above)? It was made to look like a side street fruit market in Havana, complete with colourful cardboard fruit boxes and bright woven baskets.
This issue also has some great oudoor spaces and products featured. This balcony with sweeping Melbourne city view, belongs to Nicola of homewares label Luum. We adore that laser-cut metal screen and that GlobeWest sofa! This space also feautres in more detail, in our new Planted magazine which is also coming out early December in newsagents. More on that issue soon...
