In Issue 90 has arrived! We head into the country, and discover a host of exciting people, places and products. Our cover shot is from the Trickett’s new conservatory home on their Saint Verde farm.

In DECONow -things, places people and ideas on our radar – we showcase a selection of beautiful Basotho Blankets and explore the art of weaving to highlight the ways in which the traditional is being (re)introduced and integrated into local and global design.We also look at  design that gives back,and introduce you to two non-profit organisations that are harnessing the creative resources of South Africa and Malawi, as well as that of renowned international designers,to generate income for crafters.

Our team went on a meander through the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, and met some of the country;s finest ceramists, such as Mick Haigh, Astrid Dahl, Ardmore, and Andrew Walford. We also get up close and personal and pay tribute to succulents in a collection of portraits which capture and honour their subtle colours, ornamental features, and resilient natures.

 

 

We get the scoop and give you an exclusive look into the ranch home of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi in Santa Monica, and show you how to get their look. Issue 90 also gives you insider access to an inner city apartment in Melbourne, which has the feeling of country living, a revamped farmhouse in Uruguay and the Railway House,a modern conversion of an old railway cottage in Holland.

Winter has set in and we welcome hearty meals, decadent desserts and brave the crisp outdoors, with warm fires, beers and alfresco dining.
