Two Completely Different Looks





I must say I love the latest edition of Inside Out magazine - their 10th Birthday issue. My two favourite stories within the issue are both very different. I love the images shown of Nicole Bonython-Hines home {above}...especially the gorgeous artwork cluster wall which is made up of pieces by her children in her kitchen. I also love the image of her standing in front of some magazine tear sheets - so colourful and uplifting!














The other story I loved was the feature on the home on Dangar Island on the Hawkesbury River just outside of Sydney which Greg Mellor and his partner Nick Krull have renovated. I adore the look of this laid-back, comfortable, cozy home. It looks so beautiful set in amongst the trees. It actually reminds me of the way our new home is surrounded by beautiful trees and gardens. I was very inspired by this story....I know, it's a complete departure from my usual love of colour! PS. Check out Greg Mellor's work on his website - www.gregorymellor.com

What a gorgeous home on the Hawkesbury, I shall have to investigate this area more...

I'm a fan of the bright and beautiful too but sometimes natural tones are so relaxing and cosy!

I'm the same way - I love colour but also appreciate a more muted palette. I just saw the spread of your home in Canadian House and Home - congrats! Great to see parts we haven't seen before and love your use of the colour pink. We all will be interested to see what you do with your new house over time.

Love both looks....how to decide?!?! Two houses would totally solve the problem. I will work on that! And I love the Aussie Dogs. :)

I too got the mag and loved the house. I could imagine relaxing on their deck admiring the view. Too nice. The leaves scattered around make it even more cosy ..

I too am totally in love with the colourful home. So inspiring!

Congratulations also on your new home feature Anna (we never tire of seeing your lovely home!) and also for your new baby. Wonderful terrific news for you and your boys.
