Susanne Imre is back at the helm of Livingetc after returning from maternity leave, and I love how she references brights in her first editor’s letter back! In fact, much of the May issue centers around bright, summary hues. First up – my favourite story from the issue – Gelato Colours, which reinvents pieces with ice cream shades. As well as the preppy brights, there’s also great inspiration for darker, more masculine colour schemes – just check out that black feature wall in the living room, and how seductive is the black space teamed with the dramatic vertical garden – I love it! With product round ups for fruit bowls and coffee tables, and great ideas for your walls and bathrooms there’s something to inspire for all. They even managed to squeeze in some cracking recipes from Donna Hay – with knockout food styling to boot. Bravo, guys! P.S. Be sure to check out their limited edition plate auction in aid of Shelter, as there are exclusive designs from the likes of Jonathan Adler, Lee Broom, Donna Wilson and many more.
