I often wonder about the homes featured in magazines. I've seen enough episodes of Next Top Model to know that along with smizing being essential, everything is not as it seems in the world of capturing humans on film.

Designer Rugs - Chris with Director Yosi TalI'm nearing the end of my course at the International School of Colour and Design, which means my rug design project is almost due.

It's a pretty exciting opportunity for us to be connected with an Aussie icon like this! Naturally, I had to hit the Edgecliff showroom for design inspiration and was lucky enough to speak to managing director Yosi Tal while I was there (score!).
