    Random Studio Amsterdam Office Designed by X+L.

    6th December

    When it comes to super beautiful workplace interiors, it seriously doesn’t get much better than this. This is the sort of project that makes me get all hot and sweaty under my lady collar, with seriously impure thoughts running through my brain. Random Studio enlisted the help of Amsterdam based Studio X+L, who were an obvious choice to design the new space that felt like ‘home’. The brief called for a creative workplace that was open but felt intimate; an environment that would invite creativity and stimulate the sharing of knowledge and inspiration…

    Monochrome Masterpieces // Black and White Design Inspiration – Part 01.

    28th June

    Today I wanted to explore some of the finest and most dramatic examples of Monochrome Masterpieces. Although the black & white palette has been around since the dawn of day, I am specifically interested in examples that really take the use of the two “non-colours” to a whole new level, and in doing so break new grounds. These spaces are about extreme contrasts, bold gestures, sharp and refined detailing, slicing and carving of volumes that create a dramatic distinction between the positive and the negative, solid and void. All of them have shown a hard-core commitment to the black & white palette and I am here to applaud them…



    Monochrome Masterpieces // Black and White Design Inspiration – Part 02.

    28th June

    Here we go with Part 02 of the Monochrome Masterpieces. This post specifically looks at residential interiors which take the bold black & white palette to new heights. This approach definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, but boy aren’t these spaces exhilarating to look at. It’s interesting to note that all of these interiors have a very different “genetic make-up”. From contemporary, rustic, ornately heritage, super slick modern verging on futuristic, all the way to understated Japanese aesthetic – each one of these homes took the monochrome palette and made their bitch…
