Like many of you, I've long had an infatuation with Adore Home magazine. It's bold, it's bright and it's delightfully glossy. I'm a bit like a kid at a birthday party after too many red frogs over the news that the new Adore Book is finally here. And today, I have a sneak peek inside!

As interiors legend Karen McCartney celebrates the new edition of her book 50/60/70 Iconic Australian Houses hitting stores, I caught up with her to find out exactly what it is that makes a house iconic - and why she's smitten with Aussie homes.

Home by Beci Orpin - ArtIn the intro of her book, Home, crafting mastermind Beci Orpin declares "the homes I like the most are not the ones that are uber clean and styled to the hilt". It's this statement that sums up the ethos of her latest release - and a styling preference I also share. What unfolds in the pages after is nothing short of charming!

The Crafty Minx at Home - MirrorIt's no secret that I love to get my craft on, so this release from Kelly Doust, The Crafty Minx at Home, is right up my alley. Filled to the brim with upcycling ideas, furniture reinventions and enough projects to keep you going for months, it's undoubtably a crafters bestie!

Made by Hand BookGetting crafty doesn't come as natural to me as, say, styling a room would. I find I always need a bit of a push or some inspirational imagery to get me excited to whip out the sewing machine and give something a go. Thankfully Made by Hand by Lena Corwin hit my mailbox recently and did just that!

Jason Grant Interview on The Life CreativeIt's safe to say that Mr Jason Grant has played an integral part in Aussie styling for years. Having worked with the likes of Inside Out, Real Living, Freedom, Murobond and a host of other Aussie brands, he now adds author to his CV with his latest book release A Place Called Home. I caught up with this stylist extraordinaire to talk about his own home, his new paint range and how he rose to fame.

100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life by Jonathan AdlerIf my mother told me tomorrow that I was adopted, I think I'd book a redeye flight to New York to declare myself Jonathan Adler's brother. We seem to share the same adoration of colour, a love of quirk, a fondness of humour and a partiality to a scatter cushion or seven. It's in his latest release - 100 Ways to Happy Chic Your Life - he cements himself as my ultimate go-to guy for out-of-the-box home decor inspiration. So, we may not be brothers, but we are at the very least cut from the same cross-stitch!

Interview with Interiors Icon Karen McCartneyWith a career spanning over 20 years and many continents, Karen McCartney has become an industry expert on interior design and home styling. The founding Editor of Inside Out magazine is now on board as Temple & Webster's Editorial Director, revelling in the fast pace of the ever-changing online space. I was lucky enough to take some time out with this interiors icon to learn more about her creative journey, how she styles her own home and so much more!
