Sneak Peek | November Issue of Inside Out Magazine!




Today we're excited to share a sneak peek of Inside Out Magazine's November issue (out this Thursday).  As Managing Editor, Lee Tran Lam explains, " ...it might seem way too early to even be talking about Christmas – but the holidays have a funny way of sneaking up real fast on you, and we figure it's better to be over-prepared than to be feeling overwhelmed and dreading how close the calendar is to December 25!"  We couldn't agree more! Let's take a look!   (All descriptions by Lee Tran Lam).

"So our cover story is about a home that was renovated with a Christmas deadline – the owners had a miracle-worker builder who finished the project exactly when he promised (December 1). The decorations and tree – and Christmas guests – appeared not long after. We've also got DIY instructions for some of the ornaments that appear throughout, such as the pennant bunting and the gift toppers. Styling by Heather Nette King. Photography by Armelle Habib.

There's also a feature on gourmet gifts that you can make – such as gingerbread snowflakes, apricot jam and raspberry & lime cordial – accompanied with crafty ideas on how to present them, too (from pretty paper cones to personalised boxes).

Of course, we've rounded up the best in everything from wreaths to tree ideas (and it turns out that you *can* decorate for the holidays without green-and-red tinsel!) Styling by Joseph Gardner. Photography by Sam MccAdam-Cooper.

And not every page is marked by December 25. We've got a kids' room feature that plunges you right into the tropics. Styling by Phoebe McEvoy. Photography by Sam McAdam-Cooper.

And we also direct the spotlight onto the very space-smart home of architect Adriano Pulpilli, who makes every centimetre count in the 42-square-metre layout that he has to work with. Photography by Simon Whitbread.

So that's our round-up of the November issue, which is metaphorically gift-wrapped and ready to drop on Thursday!"
