Vogue Living May/June

My favourite shot this issue - so stylised... love the limited colour palette too. Can't go wrong with black/white/red.

More red spots here, in the form of 'Growing/Falling' wallpaper by Ilias Fotopoulos. I love the gradual dissipation of those tiny dots into nothing... beautiful, brave and unique.

Both shots above are from the stunning Bachelor-pad of famed New York interior designer Thomas O'Brien. I'm sure I've seen this exact spread before... must have been in an international mag. Oh well... still gorgeous.

This shot from a feature on the Sydney home of Interior Designer Michael Bechara

The latest Vogue Living arrived at my door yesterday... this issue is all about polka dots and spots - on everything from fabrics to wallpapers (love it!), Aussie expats with extravagant homes in France (gorgeous yes, but 'bohemian'... not really), and Sydney-siders with just a tad more money than taste (yes that means you Justin Hemmes).

This issue is a smidgen(?) less exciting than usual... generally the features drip a little too much $$$ , whereas I tend to prefer a bit of balance by inclusion of the odd creative, eclectic, vaguely attainable-looking interior. ANYWAY can't be too scathing... it's still choc-full of the eye-candy we've come to know and love from Australia's best interior magazine.

One of the best shots in this issue... this little image was hidden way up the back in the social pages. It's taken from the opening of Hub's new-ish store in Sydney, and features a pom-pom installation by Sandra Foti. I want one!
