Our Bright & Breezy front cover home this issue comes from Michael and Carlene Duffy, former reality TV stars of The Block, and now build and design team Cedar & Suede. It’s a contemporary beach house on the Gold Coast that Carlene has transformed with her signature love of colour. Don’t you just love that ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ wallpaper?!

Kira & Kira

You’ll spot plenty of pieces from the Gold Coast\’s own Kira & Kira in the Cedar & Suede home, too. Carlene is a big fan of these local artisan furniture makers, as are we. Their Foundation dining table takes centre stage on our front cover.

The divinely dark and moody Paddington cottage in our Eclectic Glamour story doubles as a shopfront for the style-savvy owners – and we just adore how they have combined ornate treasures with a vintage-luxe vibe.
