    BLOW Copenhagen Hair Salon by STUDIO David Thulstrup.

    20th September

    If ever there was a place you could BLOW me, this would have to be it. This exclusive hair salon in Copenhagen opened just last month. It was designed by the clever people at STUDIO David Thulstrup. A modern and minimalist interior with a 1950′s twist – what’s not to love! At just 38sqm, the salon packs a punch with a clever selection of materials, simplicity of form and beautiful detailing. The attention revolves around two large freestanding mirrors with attached light bulbs that form a perfect circle. A contemporary interpretation of 1950′s dressing rooms, where the lighting provides a gentle glow to customers’ faces while they are blown for perfect hair. Oh man, that’s my definition of a happy ending right there…

    Damir Doma Store by March Studio // Paris, France.

    11th December

    After visiting the Aesop fitout in Paris, fashion designer Damir Doma took a bet that March Studio could do no wrong. Well, well, didn’t the Melbourne practice prove Doma so right with this ragingly fabulous fit-out for his Paris flagship store? In order to reflect Doma’s design ethos, March Studio were asked to design a space that was both raw and sophisticated with a focus on layering and materiality…



    All That Glitters…

    22nd June

    There’s been a lot of talk about gold and brass all over the internet and design magazines in the last little while. This is hardly a new trend – brass made a huge come back some time ago in the world of architecture, interiors, fashion and product design, gently shoving it’s previously celebrated silvery and coppery friends aside. It turns out that the time has come for the golden sheen to enjoy it’s well deserved 5 minutes in the sun.

    I must admit, I was never really a big fan of gold for the longest time (I know, we all make mistakes), but my palettes these days are all about hints of this lovely shiny shade. Perhaps this is because we are collectively getting much better at using golds and mixing them with nudes, greys, charcoals and navy, to ensure they are always sophisticated, and never too blingy…



    Casa G+S by Grooppo // Savona, Italy.

    18th June

    This project is a wonderful example of a heritage home built in 1870 in Albissola Marina in Savona, where one of the three floors were lovingly refurbished by Italian architects Grooppo. Hexagonal floor tile design mimics the original layout, with different colours defining the sequence of rooms and highlighting the continuity of spaces. I love the way the floors in each room lend their own personality, and how different colours and patterns harmonise with each-other so beautifully. There is something nana’s-patchwork-quilt about the overall aesthetic – it feels warm, familiar and authentic – which really resonates with my ethnic origins…
