Homes+ (Australia) - - WELCOME -

One of the things I look for­ward to ev­ery month is por­ing over the read­ers’ homes pages to see all the bril­liant ideas the own­ers have had. There’s noth­ing bet­ter than feel­ing in­spired to make some­thing your­self or dis­cov­er­ing a cre­ative or prac­ti­cal idea that will work per­fectly in your own home.

Then again, it also makes me happy sim­ply to see how clever peo­ple are

(is that just me?)

The beau­ti­ful home on this month’s cover sat­is­fies all of the above. Jessica and her hus­band, Os­valdo, have a lovely and invit­ing home in Mel­bourne full of ge­nius sur­prises; things that not only look fan­tas­tic, but can also save money. My favourites? The kitchen pen­dant lights cre­ated from Ikea bowls, the stun­ning fea­ture wall be­hind her bed made from tim­ber-look vinyl planks and the cof­fee ta­ble fash­ioned from a huge wooden ca­ble reel. The in­spi­ra­tion doesn’t stop there… but I’ll leave you to dis­cover more for your­self from page 30.

Talk­ing of in­spir­ing homes, in this is­sue we con­grat­u­late the win­ner of our Reader Home of the Year com­pe­ti­tion. Thanks to all who voted. It was a re­ally suc­cess­ful com­pe­ti­tion and our win­ner, Ali­son Kuess­ner from Queens­land, was stoked to have so many of you ap­pre­ci­ate her home. We’ve re-run a few high­lights from it on page 26.

Here’s to an inspirational April for us all.
