Inside Out – Annual Decorating Guide
Just got the special annual decorating guide from Inside Out – an Australian published magazine. If you happen to be a follower of Inside Out, you may be wondering why I’m just now receiving this issue which was published in May. I generally don’t get my hands on these issues when released because (unfortunately) I don’t have a subscription. The last time I checked, a subscription in the US was over $140 for 8 issues (yikes!). However, if I patiently wait a few months, I can usually find them at a discounted price.
This year’s guide focus is on “Renew, Rethink, and Revitalize”. Renovation also is covered with valuable comments by the Editorial director, Karen McCartney. She mentions that a friend of hers, who is typically calm and organized, almost had a nervous breakdown over a major home renovation. Then further adds, “…an architect I interviewed recently said, rather sadly, that there was a high break-up rate among his residential clients …“. How awful!
This issue offers tons of decorating ideas and wonderful tidbits on renovation and how to avoid certain pitfalls.
I do hope that I get the Christmas Inside Out issue before the end of January. Anything after that just becomes a tad out of place.
