Look what we have here hey? Another brand spanking new issue of Adore Home Magazine. We have called our Winter 2016 issue the Devour edition – this issue is more than just a connection with food. It’s about delicious spaces and interiors you’ll want to mop up! It’s a completely irresistible issue if I do say so myself, and I hope you’ll devour each and every page of interior goodness. Gracing our front cover, is interior designer and self-confessed sweet tooth Melissa Koch and her adorable five-year-old twins. Here’s a sneak peek look at her bedroom (pictured directly below).

A lot of people ask me how I find homes to feature in the magazine, well honestly, most of the time I find them through Instagram and the lovely ladies at Norsu Interiors pointed me in the direction of this home designed by Michelle Hart of Bask Interiors. Her client Georgina, had a traditional home full of charming period features, it just needed to be brought back to life. With the help of Michelle, it has now turned into a slightly more contemporary space with Scandi-style furnishings and decor and lots of lush plants everywhere - my kind of home!

Our 14 page special on decorating with plants is one of my favourite features in this issue. Recently I moved into my first bought apartment and I’ve been absolutely loving transforming my courtyard with a massive vertical garden, and shelves of potted plants. I simply can’t get enough! It was the driving force behind this feature and I hope you’ll devour each and every page and be inspired to create a lush oasis in your own home. This kitchen below has totally been brought to life thanks to the open shelving and the abundance of greenery gracing it.

A highlight in this issue, is our delicious dining rooms feature showcases three spaces each with clean modern lines, and filled with their own distinct personality. Here is one of the beautiful dining rooms within this feature - I’m in love with that moody blue feature wall.

It’s been a couple of years since we last featured Katy’s colourful abode, and my goodness, how it’s changed since Katy last graced our front cover of our first printed Annual edition. Katy has taken a more pared-back approach with the renovation of her small home, including a galley-style kitchen renovation to open up the space, new timber floors, and bathroom transformation. A black and white palette ensures the longevity of the interior’s design, with Katy adding layers of pastel decor throughout to help soften the overall mood.

The new issue arrives this week and pre-orders are now open to our readers (click here). Magazine orders will be sent out next Monday. If you’ve missed one of our back issues, now is the time to pick one up on sale for just $7 each + postage. If you wish to wait til this issue hits newsagent stands, it will be in stock June 13. And finally, in important news, we'll be moving to a quarterly format from here on in. That means Adore Home will be released once every three months instead of every two. For subscribers, this will not affect your subscription - you will still receive 6 issues, it will just be over a longer time frame. It’s so much work to complete one issue every two months (more so with the printed issues than our online issue in the past), and as I’m only one person I need to make sure I’m not taking on too much work and can produce the best possible magazine each and every issue.
