You know, I’ve come to realise that black grout can be a perfect friend to a humble little white tile. The sort of friend we all wish for – one who makes us look better, feel smarter and stand out in the crowd. In honour of this realisation, today I’m sharing a selection of cool projects that feature white tiles with black grout – from residential and retail interiors, to offices and styling sets.
Sunken buildings sitting below the ground are a scary thought. Dark, hidden hovels that cause claustrophobia and fear of your surroundings collapsing in on you while you sleep. Ok, that is being slightly melodramatic, but you have to admit the thought of such spaces is not particularly appealing as a place to live. But yes – you guessed it – today’s story is here to prove the theory wrong.
Empty, people-less spaces in architectural photography is out. Well, not really. But what’s in, is creative project shoots – and specifically dress ups. More and more, designers are taking an inventive approach to the capturing of their work on camera, incorporating props, people, and a strong sense of narrative. The result is some very dynamic – and entertaining – photography of houses and spaces, which could actually pass as works of art on their own.
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!

This perfect trifecta makes me go all giggly, drooly and week at the knees…
It’s certainly no news the (Western) world has been moving towards a more mobile existence for quite some time. 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…
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…
