Inside Out: Blog of the Week

For all of you Aussie interiors mag lovers you will be happy to know that the fab Inside Out magazine now has a blog. Did you know that? I heard from an editor there just today who pointed me to their new blog which I thought was really nice. I remember that feeling of being a new blogger and reaching out to others showing your site for the very first time, it’s hard sometimes even if you’re a big magazine. Maybe even especially if you’re a big magazine. I mean, so much expectation to live up to. Thankfully for those of us outside of Australia who may not read Inside Out regularly, we feel lucky to catch a tiny glimpse of the magazine and if it’s tearsheets on a blog from time-to-time then so be it! Speaking of, here are a few pages from a recent Inside Out issue where they feature artist Lizzie Buckmaster Dove.


Inside Out Magazine

Lizzie Buckmaster

Inside Out Magazine

I really like this lady and her art, doesn’t she look so friendly and creative? She also looks like a lovely mother and seeing her work proudly displayed in her home makes me happy because I think it’s great for her family to live around her passion like that. Inside Out had the honor of interviewing her and shared their conversation with their blog readers here. I could sit with someone like this for hours though I must admit at first I’d feel slightly intimidated by her lifestyle & talent wouldn’t you? But it would not hold me back from accepting her invitation! I think the first half hour would be me seated there just drooling on the floor.


Lightly

In addition to Lizzie, I also learned about a company called Lightly in Melbourne from the Inside Out blog. They have the most lovely objects on their website, please take a moment to look at it because I know you will like it very much. I found these butterfly saucers which can be mounted to the wall as art and they’re a new favorite mine because they are delicate and feminine. If you don’t fancy them you may find another product better suited to your tastes as they have a wide range of all sorts of beautiful things at Lightly. I really love butterflies… So soothing and to me they represent such freedom, spontaneity, and gentleness. Did you know that in some cultures they are a symbol for long life, acceptance of all creatures, martial bliss, the necessity of a secure home, strength and persistence, success, the overcoming of obstacles and hardships, happiness, freedom, individuality and more. Interesting, yes?
