I don’t know if it’s because I’m sleep deprived or because if I could I would wear a copper body suit but this issue of Inside Out Magazine looks like a dream!
Seriously, Australia is killing it right now in regards to art, culture, and interior design. Have you noticed how many of many amazing homes are located in Melbourne? Or how many cool magazines based out of aussie-land? Yup, there most be something in the water in the southern hemisphere that makes them cool and design-y. And the styling! GAH. Insaneus maximus.
A main takeaway from this look: copper the shit out of your house. Seriously. It’s not that hard. Just go buy a few pipes, cut them up and use them around your house: as candle holders, vases, or simple decoration. Basically copper is the new antlers (remember when every single house used to have antlers on the wall?).
And hey if you need more ideas for interiors, check out this board.
This is what dreams are made of. A beautiful home in a heritage building? Yes, yes, and triple yes. This marvellous space won the first prize of DoFA ’12, under the Interior and Design category.
For those of you who don’t know what DoFa is (including myself), DoFA is this great architecture Polish festival that gives recognition to the best interior design firms (that’s at least what I was able to translate from their Polish website). They’ve been doing it for a few years, and the winners are nothing short of amazing. There’s some serious talent brewing over there. If you want to see more interior gems from DoFA, go over here.
Now, I know most of us don’t live in this kind of pristine, dream-like space, but we can definitely take some notes from 29 Square Meters’ design. Here’s my to-do list inspired by the images above:
And I think that’s good for now. If I get to it, soon enough I’ll be sharing photos of these to-do projects.
Got any DYI / Design projects of your own for the weekend?

My god. I still can’t believe these crystals are oil paintings. I discovered Carly Waito’s art months ago but I am still in awe. Aren’t you? I thought I’d pay tribute to her magical work by pairing it with some other magical images. Stunning interiors worthy of a gallery. A daydreamer’s heaven (that’s me. Although I’m sure some lucky duck out there has the money to decorate like this in real life…jealous!!). More after the jump!
