EDITOR’S LETTER

love this month’s cover image as it feels romantic and almost nostalgic and promises that gorgeous longer, warmer days are just around the corner. It was shot in a beautiful. We had a sparkling day, and the images captured by photographer Alana Landsberry are evocative of Australian summer while exuding a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Lots of us are missing the opportunity to jump on a plane and get away from our everyday lives but on cracking days such as we had everything feels more optimistic. Without wanting to sound parochial, I feel so lucky to live in Australia and have scenes like this as the backdrop to our adventures. Our chic coastal retreats by Australia’s leading architects and interior designers illustrate the beauty and splendour on our doorstep and emphasise our incredible design aesthetic. There’s also a plethora of heavy-hitting talent on the following pages – Karen McCartney talks to award-winning architect Angelo Candalepas . Business of Design takes a look at Melbourne’s new boutique development, Huntingtower Road by Orchard Piper – a collaboration involving architect Stephen Jolson, landscape designer Myles Baldwin and interior designer Tamsin Johnson. It’s a roll call of design heft in this issue and one of the standout homes is Richards Stanisich’s respectful yet contemporary reworking of a 1950s Harry Seidler-designed house in Sydney And we reveal the finalists in the last category of the 2020 Coco Republic Interior Design Awards, Best Commercial Interior . We are looking forward to unveiling the winners and celebrating their fabulous work in the December/January issue of – on sale November 23.
