Adore Home's Family Edition

 

Our brand new family edition has arrived and you can now
order one up from our online shop, or purchase from one of
the many retail stores that stock it (click here to see the list).
 Plus it will be available to buy in newsagents Australia-wide
from February 8 - not long to go now! I absolutely love how
this issue turned out, so many fabulous family homes, kids'
bedroom inspiration and stylish storage solutions. Our front
cover home belonging to Tarina Lyell, from Oh.Eight.Oh.Nine
is a knock-out, lovers of contemporary Scandi style, will just
adore her dreamy, light-filled Perth abode.

We also checked into Alex Hotel in Perth for a tour of their
amazing spaces. The interior design by Arent & Pyke is
sensational. Photographer Hannah Blackmore captured
this boutique hotel so perfectly (pictured above)!

For the first time ever, I decided to print two front cover
options! Tarina's front cover (above) will be our standard cover
available in newsagents and select boutique stores (along with
our online shop), and Jenni Farr's kitchen (pictured below), is 
our limited edition cover, stocked only in our online shop and
very select retail stores (limited to one per city for exclusivity).

JAMIE DURIE X THE CANVAS WORKSHOP

Today I wanted to introduce you to Jamie Durie's new
collaboration with The Canvas Workshop
(which you have
probably already spotted in our latest online issue of Adore).
The exclusive new collection celebrates the pattern, colour and
textures found in the environment and will give an instant lift
to any indoor or outdoor space. "My collaboration with The Canvas
Workshop is all about infusing the essence of 'al fresco' design
and representing this aesthetic in the form of art and decor,"
explains Jamie. "The range truly breathes life into any 'outdoor
room' and blurs the lines between choosing art for interior and
exterior spaces. The Canvas Workshop has worked closely with me
to understand my passion for a 'transinterior' lifestyle," says Jamie.

The extensive collection of art, décor and cushions are
available online and include canvas and framed prints
and outdoor wall art. Click here to shop the range.

Kitchen Inspiration

So I bought an apartment late last year, a 1 bedroom unit
off the plan. It's currently being built and is about 95%
finished. The other week I got to do a walk-through of my
apartment and I tell you what, it was the highlight of my
year. It beats printing a magazine hands down (although
that was a proud moment). Having my own home, is
something I've dreamt about for so long, so for it to be
almost in my grasp, makes me absolutely giddy. I've
been planning and obsessing over how I'll decorate my
own home since I purchased it. It's been a long time
obsessing over the details folks! Anyways as is the way
with most apartments that you buy off the plan, they give
you little or no choice in the finishings (I had pretty much
zero choices). So I've got plans to do some tweaking - first
stop, the kitchen! I'm currently doing some research and
came across this beautiful kitchen designed by Sarah
Sherman Samuel (who has the most amazing blog
).

Firstly, I'm obsessed wtih the gold hardware, and of
course I had to track down where I can purchase these
beauties and add to my wishlist! I also love the round pendant
lights - I couldn't find the milk glass finish here in Australia
(with brass trim) but did manage to find something close
through Beacon Lighting (click here to see) - with clear
glass - I think they will still look great in my kitchen.
Want to see more of Sarah's kitchen makeover? Click here.

What's this pic you say? Well it's certainly not part
of my 'inspiration' imagery haha, it's my actual kitchen
(yes I took lots of photos while I was in there). As you
can see it's not finished yet, they still have to put in
the appliances and kitchen sink, but it's almost there.
They're also installing my three pendant lights (see
below for my selection). Definitely need a new splash
back, the one currently in there is so bland it almost
fades away! And I'd love to get rid of the beige kitchen
bench top, but I'm not sure if that's in the budget. We'll
see. Below are a few products on my kitchen wish list.

Adore's Annual edition out now!

Well here's some slightly exciting news. The Adore Annual
edition has been released today in newsagents Australia-wide!
Yup, it's our best issue to date. Seriously EVERY single image
is amazing. There are so many beautiful homes that it makes
me change my mind every two seconds, on what style I should
decorate my future home. Gah! Please if you haven't purchased
this issue through our online shop yet, or through one of our
many homewares stockists, please pick up a copy at your local
newsagent and support a small independent publisher (i.e. me)
continue to create beautiful, inspirational content for you all.

It retails for $12.95, a little pricey I might hear you saying,
but trust me it's worth it. No filler crap or boat loads of ads
in this issue (like so many other interiors mags out there!).
Just pure, good, interesting content. Here's a little taste of
what you'll find inside our glossy pages. Drool.

Simone Duckworth's home, seriously makes me want to go
out and purchase every single Slim Aarons print that was ever
made! And those white concrete floors? Heaven.
Photographed by Nikki To and styled by Alice Stephenson.

If it's Scandi-meets-contemporary-Australian style you're
looking for, you'll adore this home (above) designed by
Nicole Rosenberg of Little Liberty. Styled by Aimee Tarulli
and photographed by the ultra talented Hannah Blackmore.

Oh and you've got to check our our brand profile with
Bonnie and Neil. Their brand new retail store in Brunswick,
Melbourne is to die for! Photographed by Armelle Habib.

If it's renovation inspiration you're wanting, you'll love
this newly renovated home by Three Birds Renovations.
Plus designer Bonnie of Hindmarsh (one third of Three
Birds) shares her top renovating tips on a budget. So
many great ideas in this home - but I just love this all-white
kitchen - definitely my type of kitchen. Styled by Claudia
Stephenson
and photographed by Hannah Blackmore.

That's just some of the highlights from this Annual edition. There is
so much more good stuff - but I'll leave you with that for now.

Adore's New Online Issue Out Now!

Well it's with a little bit of sadness, that I announce this
online issue of Adore will be our last. We'll be moving to
print permanently from 2016, with our printed Annual
edition kick-starting what I hope to be a long line of
printed editions. It's super exciting and a little nerve-
wracking at the same time, but I'm up for the challenge.

Anyways back to this online issue - as you can see it's our
Christmas edition - filled with fab gift guides, and Christmas
styling ideas. I'm absolutely in love with the black and white
colour scheme with pops of metallic gold - so luxe and a little
bit glitzy too. I'm definitely running with this theme for my
own Christmas celebrations this year. I hope you'll enjoy
this last online issue, and hope you'll continue to support us
by purchasing the printed publications (our printed Annual
edition will be out in newsagents from Thursday this week!).

This gorgeous home built by Thomas Archer Homes and
styled by Aimee Tarulli of Archer Interiors is also one of
my personal favourite highlights from this latest issue.
I just love all of the soft pastel colours - when can I
move in?! Photographed by Red Rabbit Photography.
