Shots from the beautiful (and slightly Christmas-ified) home of Sydney stylist Lynsey Fryers…. ahhhhh… love. it. Photos – Petrina Tinslay.
I know I know… Christmas is just another marketing ploy to make us buy more stuff. Possibly… but Christmas is also such a good excuse to indulge your creative side – its a stylist’s heaven, and needn’t be all about the $$$. Both Inside Out and Real Living have special Christmas issues out at the moment… and before you pounce on me for perpetuating the Christmas PR machine, both these issues are really, really good!
Both mags offer some seriously stunning content and photos to drool over… really gorgeous and carefully considered stories that certainly don’t feel like the left-overs from previous issues (as can sometimes be the case with ‘special issue’ publications). Inside Out shares some beautiful Aussie homes all dressed up for Christmas, some incredible food spreads, as well as simple DIY decorating ideas from the likes of fashion designer Lee Mathews and stylist Lynsey Fryers.
Real Living has a more level-headed, budget-conscious approach to the holiday season. They offer a really great, thorough article on how to ‘give back’ at Christmas time (volunteering, mentoring and fundraising etc), as well as the obligatory gift guides and creative, cost effective decorating and wrapping ideas. Of course, there’s also a great collection of gorgeous Australian homes to peek at.
Go and get ‘em.
