London Luxe

I absolutely ADORED this London townhouse in the latest Architectural Digest.  Updated by Francis Sultana for a Hong-Kong based art collector, it is an absolute masterpiece.  I'm putting my hand up if they ever want their HK pad re-done!

Sao Paolo suprise

Hey folks, sorry I've been quiet, I've had some issues the last few days trying to upload images to Blogger. Seems like the problem is finally solved...So, today I'm very happy to share with you images of this lovely Soa Paolo apartment that is the home and workspace of architect and designer, Robert Robl.  At only 40m2 its on the small side, however I think Robert has done a great job making the space feel open and airy, and I love his mix of vintage furniture.  I particularly love the blue chair in the second image, and the wall colour in the last image!

La grande dame du design

The grand dame of design, Andrée Putman, passed away yesterday aged 87. One of the most stylish women the world will ever see.

“Unless you have a feeling for that secret knowledge that modest things can be more beautiful than anything expensive, you will never have style.”

Rest in peace, Madam Putman, you taught me so much.

Divided lands

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all managed a little bit of a break, and saw the new year in in a fabulous way. I did, and I think one of my new years resolutions must be to tone down the indulgences (food wise)...

Well, back to business then. Thought I'd start the new year off with some table porn.  Spotted in the Feb issue of Architectural Digest, this "Divided Lands" table by Studio Roeper. Love!
