    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.

    Tour of Ace Hotels Around The World.

    21st March

    Ace Hotels really do live up to their name. Each one has a unique style, a fascinating history, and an Ace Philosophy at its heart.

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

    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…

    Daft Punk at Lautner’s Sheats Goldstein Residence in LA.

    23rd May

    I realise that Yellowtrace is not a music blog, so we shall leave Daft Punk’s brand new album “Random Access Memories” alone, while I draw your attention to something else. I’m talking about their recent slick photo shoot set in a famous modernist house in Los Angeles – Sheats Goldstein Residence, designed by celebrated American modernist architect John Lautner…
