STYLE SESSIONS WITH - Loni Parker, Founder & Editor of Adore Home Magazine talks to eat read love about style inspiration, a love of colour, travel dreams to NYC and shares a sneak peek into the August issue.

Adore Home magazine is Australia's first online only home and lifestyle magazine, available exclusively online. All beautiful and all in one place, Adore Home really is a one stop shop for home inspiration, new to market products, and gorgeous holiday destinations from across the globe. The August issue is just around the corner, and Loni has shared a little of what is to come - the colourful home of Jane Petterson, owner of Velvet Lane, Sydney design team Arent & Pyke, or some seriously stunning interiors from Sydney's PAD
What is the inspiration behind your beautiful online Adore Home Magazine? I was inspired to start Adore Home magazine as I had a real love for interiors and also was working as a graphic designer at a small publishing company in Brisbane. I decided to fuse those two passions and create my own online magazine. At the time when I started Adore there were no other online only home magazines that were Australian, only US based ones, this also spurred me on to create something that Australians could read and relate to.

How would you describe your signature style? I would describe my style as being modern-glam. I'm very much in love with bold black and white colour schemes with punches of accent colour to bring the look to life. I'm a huge fan of Greg Natale's design work but also love the wildly colourful designs from Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro.

Whats hot in Australian interior design right now? I think neon is making a big come back in both interiors and fashion, but I don't see it lasting the long haul. Great for accessorising a neutral outfit or room to bring it up to date. I think in general colour is what's hot and it's refreshing to see colourful interiors as opposed to the dull beige interiors you see so often in print magazines.

Which designers send you weak at the knees? Greg Natale, Anna Spiro, Kelly Wearstler, Abigail Ahern and Jonathan Adler.

What inspires you to get out of bed in the morning? Work! I've recently quit my job and now working on Adore Home full time and I couldn't be happier. I love getting up to check my Adore Home emails and then get to work on ideas and layouts for the magazine. 

If you could travel anywhere tomorrow where would it be? New York! I have been planning to get there this year, but a few things have stopped me. Hopefully 2013 is my year to travel to the big apple and also I'd love to visit Palm Springs!

EATING - dark chocolate with almond flakes - yum! 
READING - lots of design blogs - haven't got the time to read a book.
LOVING - PAD - a store in Sydney - haven't visited it in person yet but I'll be featuring them in the next issue of Adore and the store looks amazing!  
Thanks Loni for joining us on {Style Sessions With} and giving us a little taste of the gorgeous interiors we can expect to see in the August issue. I cannot wait to see more on PAD, and Velvet Lane looks like such a find. Oh and I was VERY excited when eat read love featured on the Adore Home blog last month. What a treat!

Have a great weekend.
