Inside Out: Desktop

I'm crazy about the 10th Anniversary Issue of Australian interiors magazine Inside Out. It just arrived in the mail 3 seconds ago (I subscribe but sadly I didn't get the tea towel designed by the Rob Ryan with mine -- wah!) and I'm already drooling on the spread called Desktop featured on pages 151-157 styled by Vanessa Colyer Tay (a favorite style editor of mine). Desktop shows how to create a space on your desk that reflects your own personal style but that also inspires you -- it doesn't give tips in text as much as visual inspiration showing a natural theme, a vintage-inspired one and finally a feminine approach -- and all are stunning! In case you do not have access to the magazine, here is a glimpse of what I'm talking about... you may click to enlarge each image below to see some of the details. Because people, it's all about the details in life -- am I right?!?

I love both the natural and feminine desktops the best. The photographs were shot for the magazine by Sam McAdam who has one of the most beautiful portfolios that I've ever seen online -- her work is styled to perfection but not fussy and it's just gorgeous....

Isn't this inspiring? LOVE. IT. In fact, something as simple as a few pages, expertly done of course, can give me inspiration for weeks to come...which is what makes Inside Out such a treat because with each issue I know I'm going to find plenty of goodies to satisfy the cost of my foreign subscription to their delightful magazine. If you are able, definitely pick up this issue --or subscribe --  you will adore everything in it though their 10th Anniversary Issue is by far my favorite to date. The spread on Lee Mathews and their Art Market article are also faves of mine along with the colorful home of fashion stylist Nicole Bonython-Hines - her black "Japan" flooring is stunning.
