Read. Watch. Listen

Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the home. For a little inspiration here are three great home blogs that will certainly get the creative juices flowing:


The Design Files: Heralded as Australia’s most popular design blog, The Design Files has been taking readers into the homes of creative and prominent Aussies since 2008. Jam-packed with beautiful images, interviews, art and gardens info; it’s a one-stop shop for everything stylish.

Homelife: Focusing on life closer to home, Homelife is a joint venture between the editorial teams of Inside Out and Country Life magazines. An easy to navigate blog that has a strong DIY focus, Homelife is a perfect resource for renovators on a budget or people after some simple tips and tricks for the home.

Of Iron and Oak: One for the guys, Of Iron and Oak is not just about interior style, but has advice on gardening, cooking, even sustainable living. This is a popular blog for the man whose home is definitely his castle.


Spring, in particular September, is the best time of year to see the Aurora Australis, otherwise called the Southern Lights. Similar to the Aurora Borealis of the Northern Hemisphere, the Aurora Australis is created when the sun releases massive bursts of solar wind and magnetic fields into space, creating a spectacular light show in the sky.

With vantage points all over Australia, information can be found online. Arguably though, the best place to view the phenomenon is Tasmania. If you’re on the mainland, it may be a good time to book a holiday!


If you enjoyed the Serial podcast, there is another podcast you will certainly enjoy called Stuff You Should Know. Updated every few days it will give you boundless conversation starters to use at your next party.
