Happy New Year!

It's good to back posting again after my short hiatus. Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments while I was away. I had a lovely holiday and am feeling very rested and ready for the new year ahead. I'm now looking forward to catching up on my favorite blogs, so bear with me and my lack of comments over the last few weeks.


I have a few posts planned for the week, so stay tuned. In the meantime I thought I'd take this opportunity to mention a magazine I rediscovered during my holiday - New Zealand based urbis is an old favorite. In fact, I'm not sure why I stopped buying it (perhaps it has something to do with it not being available here in HK!), but my first resolution is to buy a subscription. The New Zealand design industry is pretty amazing for such a small country, and is producing some cutting edge architects and designers of all disciplines. Urbis features a a great range of local grown talent that is just as creative as their international counterparts. I highly recommend picking up a copy if it's available where you live, or check out their website - they post some of the articles featured in the magazine online. It may not replace House & Garden, but it might help sate my magazine addition...for a little while anyway!
