Australian House & Garden - - Letters -

My tween and I had spent months hunt­ing for in­spi­ra­tion for her bed­room, but noth­ing re­ally hit the spot. We bought Novem­ber H&G for the chil­dren’s bed­room fea­ture, but my daugh­ter fell head over heels for the teen’s room cre­ated by Moss in Top 50 Rooms. Ab­so­lute per­fec­tion! My tween has now drawn up her own de­sign, us­ing this beau­ti­ful room as a base, and I’m as thrilled as she is. Thanks for the in­spo. Emma Daniell, Moonee Ponds, Vic­to­ria

Prac­ti­cally per­fect

Look­ing though your Oc­to­ber is­sue for ren­o­va­tion ad­vice, I was sur­prised at Josh and Jenna’s kitchen (Now & For­ever). I get their love of clean lines and easy-to-live with colours, but their kitchen lost me on the prac­ti­cal­ity front. As I delved fur­ther into the is­sue, how­ever, I was cap­ti­vated by lovely dec­o­rat­ing fea­tures, in­door/out­door ar­eas, gar­dens we’d all wish to have, and a lot more. Well done, H&G. Def­i­nitely a mag­a­zine to keep and re­fer to as my home blos­soms, like those pa­per flow­ers in Above & Be­yond! Jane Dil­lon, Sun­bury, Vic­to­ria

Brows­ing his­tory

To­day I vis­ited Bronte House, where I en­joyed the vis­ual beauty of the mag­nif­i­cent home and gar­den, learnt a lit­tle his­tory and re­ceived a copy of Septem­ber H&G. Back home, I re­lived the ex­pe­ri­ence through your fea­ture on the prop­erty (Es­tate Of Mind) and rel­ished your sug­ges­tions for home im­prove­ment. I’ll be en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to visit Bronte House on its next open day, and sub­scrib­ing to H&G, my new best friend.

Mem­ory lane

Peter FitzSi­mon’s On Home (Septem­ber) brought back fond mem­o­ries of my own farm child­hood. As I read the story to my 10-year-old son, I choked up at the part where Peter de­scribes his dad. I had a dad like Peter’s: ca­pa­ble, re­spectable, some­one to turn to when you were in trou­ble. It was a lovely re­minder to cher­ish spe­cial mo­ments with fam­ily.

Ideas brew­ing

As a work­ing mum, op­por­tu­ni­ties to put my feet up and read are few. But to­day I man­aged to make a cup of tea and sit down with H&G. I was re­warded with lots of ideas for the ex­ten­sion we’re plan­ning, and I look for­ward to more quiet mo­ments with H&G. Dan­nielle Wil­son, Brunswick West, Vic­to­ria
