    What do a Storage Unit, a Basin and a Transistor Radio Have in Common?

    13th December

    What do a Storage Unit, a Basin and a Transistor Radio have in Common? I mean, isn’t it just so obvious? Of course, all of these fine product examples fully embrace one of the hottest and most enduring design trends – Thin Black Lines! Are you sick of me banging on about TBL already? Hope not, because I’m far off from being done with this puppy… and so is the rest of the design world it seems. Okay, let’s take a closer look…



    Fashion Photography vs Amazing Interiors—Models on Stairs.

    1st November

    Well it’s been at least 6 months since the last post, and I thought it was only fair we made another trip to that wonderfully delicious, visually arresting place where Fashion Photography makes sweet passionate love with Amazing Interiors. You with me? Hope so, cause you kinda have no choice – I’m totally doing it baby! Today I wanted to look at some images of hot models (is there any other kind?) using all kinds of fantastical stairs as props. I don’t know about you, but I love a good lookin’ stair, as much as I love checking out gorgeous clothes, and shit hot fashion photography. This perfect trifecta makes me go all giggly, drooly and week at the knees…



    So Hot Right Now // Mobile Buildings.

    4th October

Advancement of technology in combination with our continued pursuit of alternative lifestyle has brought about many developments towards innovative, or should I say – less conventional ways of working, living and holidaying. One such example is the move towards mobile buildings. Whilst this is far from being a new trend, it’s definitely interesting to see how varied these buildings are in their usage and the way in which they are configured. From true mobile dwellings such as the repurposed vehicles and shipping containers, to more conventional shelters designed to fit on the back of a bicycle or a truck, these interesting examples of mobile buildings from around the globe are a real-life comment about the mobile-nature of the world we live in…



    So Hot Right Now // Marble Madness: Part 01.

    6th September

    Marble has been enjoying a moment in the high-design and fashion spotlight for a little while now. Designers across the globe have been busy reinventing the way they are using marble – from architecture, interiors, furniture, lighting, art, homewares, clothing to styling. This is not at all surprising, given that nothing is quite as impressive or speaks of sophistication and luxury as eloquently as marble. Here are some of my favourite examples that embrace and channel this precious natural material so beautifully…



    So Hot Right Now // Marble Madness: Part 02.

    6th September

    Part 02 of Marble Madness looks at examples where marble is juxtaposed with other colours or materials giving the stone a fresh new look and a contemporary edge. They also show us that, in some cases, a little bit of marble can go a long way…
