    3rd July

    Moving Mountains is a Brooklyn-based design studio with a Hawaiian twist, established by designer Syrette Lew.

    Design Free Thursday // Real Surreal Photography by Ben Zank.

    3rd April

    Ben Zank is not your average 22 year-old photographer. This New York youngster will do anything for the perfect shot. And we mean anything! Zank captures the most amazing series of conceptual photographs with himself as the subject, creating strange, melancholic and sometimes surreal images that capture the viewer’s imagination.



    Crazy Beautiful Shop-able Luxury Apartment by The Line // New York City.

    28th March

    Holy ***bleeeeep***! What a space! This crazy-beautiful apartment, situated in a classic Soho loft in NYC, epitomises stylish living. Despite looking like the home of someone extremely cool and annoyingly glamorous, The Apartment is in fact a shop-able boutique. The project was brought to life by fashion stylists Vanessa Traina and Morgan Wendelborn as an extension of their online store The Line.



    Exquisite Lighting by Apparatus Studio // New York.

    26th March

    Holy guacamole! Apparatus Studio’s lighting is absolutely ridiculous. As in ridiculously amazing. If I may paraphrase someone dear to my heart – “give me brass, black and white and I’ll drop my pants any-day”. My sentiments exactly! Here, aged brass, hand-etched glass, leather, porcelain and found objects are combined to an extraordinary effect. There’s a beautiful warm glow about these lights reserved only for the meticulously crafted hand-made objects. Handsome style and careful design create that elusive sense of balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetic.



    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. For Ace, hospitality is “compassion” and the hotel is a “potential for real, fluid community.” Ace Hotels are iconic around the world for their fresh approach and for changing the way of the hotel industry across the board. Since Alex Calderwood, the late founder of Ace Hotels, decided to convert a maritime workers’ hotel in Seattle with his friends and open the first Ace Hotel in 1999, hotels haven’t been the same. With passionate, creative ideas driving them, Ace has lead the way for boutique hotels with a difference.



    Retrosuperfuture Store by Andrea Caputo // New York City.

    31st January

    If you’re a sucker for hipster retail spaces, no-nosense industrial aesthetic and New York City (who the hell isn’t?) then boy do I have a treat for you today. Retrosuperfuture is an Italian sunglasses label with their first recently opened flagship store in the US that has me feeling weak at the knees. For my money, the stripped back, industrial chic hits that sweet-spot between the luxurious and the austere.
