Look what arrived from the printers today...!
Design Anthology should hit newsstands around the world later this month!
Good morning! Or at least I wish it was...its bucketing down here. It seems Hong Kong has seen fit to go straight from winter to rainy season. No fun. I have been slightly cheered by these gorgeous images by Richard Powers via Yatzer of The Jane Restaurant in Antwerp, by Piet Boon. LOVE.
This month's Belle magazine was a total treat. I especially loved the feature on the LA home by designer Daniel Cuevas. So nice to see more work from such a talented designer. I wrote about a project he worked on with designer Carol Katleman in London a while back here.
I particularly loved this library....I dream about having a space like this one day...
I feel head over heels for this Rhode Island home renovated by designer Juniper Tedhams, featured in the latest House Beautiful. I really love the combination of the classic bones of the house - and while I'm not normally one for white walls, I think they really work here - with the mix of early 20th Century furnishings and the semi-industrial elements.
The cabinet on the right of the first image looks suspicioulsy like a Jean-Michel Frank design..and if its an original I'm totally jealous. Otherwise, it looks great in this room.
Also loving the long low look of the living room...the corner bookshelf is genius.
And the brass fixtures in the bathroom....to die for!

Its been so damn cold and dreary in Hong Kong lately...I almost feel like I'm living in London (minus the architecture or culture). Today though, we finally have blue skies above.
Speaking of London, and blue, I am very happy to be able to share with you some pics of a recently completed project by the talented team at London-based Central Design Studio. 'Waterfront Kitchen' is a casual dining space in The Hilton Vienna, on the banks of the Danube.
The palette consists of limed oak, blackened steel, riven slate which is accented with a rich cobalt blue. All the furniture was designed and custom made for the space, including the coloured glass fixtures by Isabel Hamm.
The team worked hand in hand with graphic designer Jon Powell to create all the branded material for the restaurant, ensuring that the restaurant has a consistent feel throughout. A very important part of designing restaurants, for sure.
Well, I for one don't mind being transported here for the afternoon - even if it is just via photos. Enjoy!
One of my favorite designers, Mark Cunningham, has updated his website. Not only are there stunning extra photos of the projects I had seen, but there are also photos of projects I love but didn't realise he was responsible for. What a treat. Here are a few of my favorites....
I am so excited to be able to finally share some news and an update on some of the work I've been doing!
Bo Concept, the celebrated Danish design retailer opened its doors in Hong Kong officially yesterday. Situated on busy Wyndham Street, in an airy two storey space, Bo Concept brings a selection of much needed well priced furnishings to Hong Kong. They have a range of timeless Scandinavian designs that also cleverly cater to space challenged apartments. Perfect for this city!
These were a few of my faves....
