This edition is packed with stunning homes to admire and great design inspiration. Explore last year’s International Home of the Year and International Kitchen of the Year entries – the grand renovation story is one of our most read – and check out a high-end Auckland renovation that is subtle yet transforming. There are gorgeous kitchens to take in, too, including one that has a character response to the owner’s occupation. And along with some beautiful bathrooms we include a guide to bidets – they have more to offer than a history lesson. Interiors stories include an apartment on Manhattan's Billionaire's Row, which skimps on nothing. And while we embrace autumn, there’s an article about creating an outdoor kitchen for next summer.
