Australian House & Garden
EDITOR’S LETTER H&G
Tanya’s top five
YOUR H&G • During Melbourne’s extended lockdown, my weekly walks with girlfriends, which we combined with book and magazine swaps, were a lifesaver. I was always happy to see an overseas mag or two in the mix, especially the English ones, but I have to say that Australian House & Garden was always the standout publication in the bunch. The Australian style – always so beautifully showcased in H&G – looks so fresh, stylish and innovative compared to the often dated English interiors. H&G highlights how far we have come design-wise, and our favoured inside-outside aesthetic seems to be streets ahead, and so reflective of, our (usually) wonderful lifestyle.
