Heavy metal

I've fallen in love with these 'Helios' tables by Stéphane Parmentier for Ormond Editions. Made from wood that has been silvered and lacquered they're so unique.  The gradation of color to metal is subtle but also super luxe.  I think I need to get me one!

The Beef Bar

I'm definitely someone that loves their food...I don't know if I'd go so far as to label myself a 'foodie', but it certainly is a passion...and so it makes sense that restaurants and their design are also something I'm very passionate about.  Its a combination of two of my great loves. 

I attended the HD Asia conference which was just on in Hong Kong this week.  There were some amazing speakers on the panel who talked about the trends and future of hospitality design in this region, and the ever changing nature of restaurants was one of the topics covered.  Tony Chi, whose work I'm a big fan of, spoke on the first day, and was incredibly entertaining and inspiring.  

So, perhaps because the weekend is coming and I'm looking forward to getting into the kitchen, or because my brain is wired on all things restaurants at the moment...this little gem caught my eye.  The Beef Bar in Monte Carlo. Designed by the firm Humbert & Poyet, I'm totally loving the mix of luxe materials, the dark moody colour palette and all those little details that make a great restaurant memorable.  I think all of a sudden I'm craving a steak...

My Hong Kong

I can leave you with one more thing to read profile on the popular Hong Kong blog Eclectic Cool, written by the lovely fellow aussie Joanne Pereira.  Click on the link to read the rest of the feature...

Saint Germain inspiration

Things are a little hectic around in lieu of a "real" post...I will leave you with this eye candy...and if you like go grab yourself a copy of the new Vogue Living (Aus). I would love an apartment in Saint Germain full stop, but one like this, yes please!

I've been having a bit of a rough week.  This gorgeous mix of stuff in the home of stylist Jenny-Lyn Hart Boden may be the only thing keeping me going right now.
