    Sheats Goldstein House by John Lautner.

    6th May

    Writing about this house is a bit like chucking in my two cents about Meryl Streep. Occupying a realm beyond mere fame, the scene-stealer of countless movies, you all have an informed and long-developed opinion, and nothing I have to say will surprise you very much. I have, however, had the good fortune to have recently been inside this house. It is highly unlikely I will ever be able to say the same about Meryl Streep.



    Joshua Tree House by Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.

    8th April

    What I like about writing for Yellowtrace is that I get to spend a fair bit of time mentally arranging my furniture in houses other than my own. With this one I am stumped. Being frank, this house is not my cup of tea. However at this point in time I’m working on a concrete house of some complexity, and so out-of-the-box buildings like this pique my interest, and earn my respect.



    Tour of Ace Hotels Around The World.

    21st March

With passionate, creative ideas driving them, Ace has lead the way for boutique hotels with a difference.

    The concept for Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles is based on a marriage between decadence and democracy, 1920’s Hollywood glamour and modern minimalism.



    Vedas: Garments and Space Design by Nicholas Alan Cope & Dustin Edward Arnold.

    20th August

    Vedas: Garments and Space Design is an ongoing collaboration between LA-based Nicholas Alan Cope & Dustin Edward Arnold. This captivating series of fashion images is created by photographing Cope & Arnold’s own sculptural garments which challenge ideas of what is acceptable versus what is possible. Mesh cloaks, structured veils and circular headdresses are combined with free-flowing muslin textiles and blurred silhouettes. One of the things I like the most about this project is the strict monochromatic palette that allows one to focus entirely on form rather than colour…
