The new issue of Inside Out magazine is on the news stands now. It's definitely one of my favourite magazines around at the moment and with it now being published monthly there is even more regular inspiration to enjoy!

This month the cover shot was so amazing that after I read the story inside I went in search of more pictures. Originally a simple weatherboard home in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick, it has undergone a beautiful renovation designed by architect Clare Cousins. The shoot was styled by Marsha Golemac. The home is light and bright with a great Scandinavian feel. I loved it so much I thought I would check out Clare Cousins' website in the hope of finding some more images of this amazing home to share with you. Here is what I found - I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I did!
