September is a month to celebrate for interiors and architecture lovers, with the much-anticipated release of Belle Beautiful Australian Homes Volume II. Building on the success of the first book, Volume II again lifts the curtain on the country’s most envy-inducing residences. In this luxe coffee table book, readers are granted exclusive access to a further 40 breathtaking abodes, from timeless to contemporary to the truly cutting edge.
The 348-page hardcover tome of aspirational homes showcases the work of the country’s most celebrated architects and interior designers many of which I call me friends. This volume throws open stylish doors from Kew to Portsea, Point Piper to Bowral with the turn of each glossy page.
Belle magazine’s editor, Tanya Buchanan, reveals the inspiration in her foreword: “We were overwhelmed by the response to our first book, Belle Beautiful Australian Homes – so much so that we decided to publish another tome – Volume II. We have myriad houses that we have featured in an issue of Belle or that are waiting to appear in future editions and it is lovely to have this big glossy format to use as a more permanent showcase for the images the fabulous photographers we work with have painstakingly captured.
“These pictures constantly remind us of the amazing creative talent in Australia and of the number of visionary home-owners who have incredible art and design pieces, furniture collections and grand plans for their ultimate place to live.”
A stellar team of stylists, photographers and writers collaborated on Belle Beautiful Australian Homes Volume II, further illuminating the work of the country’s top design talents. The result is a comprehensive ode to the best of Australian living. Available from 2nd September 2017 from leading Australian book stores.
