the ter­rific 10s

We are home and away in our cur­rent decade

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Memory Lane -

It’s amaz­ing how much world travel and glob­al­i­sa­tion in­flu­ences ev­ery­thing from cook­ing and craft to dec­o­rat­ing and shop­ping. One month we’re re-cre­at­ing the laid-back look of a Ba­li­nese bed­room and the next we’re feed­ing you a de­li­cious recipe for Ja­panese chicken and miso soup.

On the other hand, we’ve never been so in­tent on per­son­al­is­ing our homes, in­side and out, to re­flect who we are. In­creased prop­erty prices sent us into a ren­o­va­tion frenzy and we bal­ance the rise of the ‘smart home’ with a re­newed love for the hand­made, home­made and home­grown.

We per­son­alise our out­door rooms.

Sim­ple style meets mod­ern florals.

Hall­marks of our homes were pretty pas­tels and home­made knits.

Cook­ing in­spi­ra­tion goes global.
