    Liza Beirut Restaurant Designed by Marc Soughayar & Maria Ousseimi.

    18th June

    Paris-based Lebanese-born restaurateurs, Liza Soughayar and Ziad Asseily, recently made a comeback on the upmarket Middle Eastern dining scene with their latest venture – Liza Beirut. The restaurant, named after it’s owner and the city that inspired it, is located in the stylish suburb of Achrafieh in East Beirut. The sprawling 500sqm interior is housed on the first floor of a historical venue that is the Metropolitan Club – the former residence of some of Lebanon’s most prominent families.



    Rabari Rug Collection by Doshi Levien for Nanimarquina.

    16th June

    I’ll preface this post by saying that this was one of my Top 5 favourite products from Milan Design Week. Yep, 100% – these are that good. Designed by Doshi Levien for Spanish rug maker Nanimarquina, Rabari rug collection evokes “the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.” I am a real sucker for projects which clearly reference designers’ past experiences, memories, ethnic origins and iconography, particularly when brought into a contemporary context such as this. For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.



    House in Balsthal by Pascal Flammer // Switzerland.

    3rd June

    To Switzerland, today, where outside the little town Balsthal stands this sweet cottage by Pascal Flammer. Looking at the photos, I can’t stop the walls and roof morphing into gingerbread. I’m starting design work on my own little house in the woods, so when I see a project like this, out comes the pen and I start taking notes.



    Hotel Hotel // Canberra.

    13th May

    With brass chandeliers, a concrete ceiling punctured with round skylights, sleek fireplaces, leather lounges and shaggy topped stools, the aesthetic is a unique and luxurious take on the Australian shack. The space is high end but without the stiff, unapproachable feel of most hotel lobbies. As soon I walked in I had already decided that I was coming back.
