KINFOLK GALLERY BY NORM ARCHITECTS





I'm sure I've posted about this place before (??!!) so maybe it's somewhere in the archives :/ but hey, it warrants a second posting just because its pretty amazing. Norm Architects designed this collaborative work-space for the people at Kinfolk. Their objective was to create a casual working space that felt more like a home than an office space. Employees even invite friends and family into the space to share ideas. 

"Much like human wellbeing, the essence of our work is found in balance – between richness and restraint, between order and complexity," said Norm Architects. "Our vision is to look beyond sight. We want to create spaces that feel good in every way. "

UP KITCHEN FROM REFORM + DINESEN





Are you looking for a sustainable / earth friendly makeover for your IKEA kitchen? Architects at Lendager Group have designed in collaboration with Dinesen this stunning recycled kitchen for Reform. Dinesen is a Danish family company that have been producing arguably the most beautiful wooden floors out there. The UP kitchen is created from Dinesen's high quality cut offs. 

 “The kitchen consists of cuts that are left when Dinesen has supplied floors to galleries, restaurants, mansions and other premier establishments. Even though that wood has undergone one of the most extensive production process you can imagine it is impossible to completely eliminate waste. It is those pieces that we are able to give new life.”  – reform.

COPENHAGEN APARTMENT








I'm in love with so much in this beautiful 66 sq m apartment. From the tiny mosaic tiles in the bathroom and the pale chevron floors to the clever drawers hidden in the stairs in the kids bedroom. Not to mention that bed. It's truly perfect.

Design: Emil Dervish 

RUIN RETREAT





Not far from Stockholm, in the dreamy archipelago (of which I have such romantic dreams) stands this beautiful residence; Ruin Retreat. Yep I could easily spend some time here.

LIFE LATELY


Is a happy whirlwind of house renovation (kitchen in progress right now, yes, right now), school application, 4 year old life and forever trying to embrace a more simple, slow life. I think we are there 50% of the time! Oh and today is a good day as it's Sushi Monday.

The above kitchen is a beautiful mixture of oak, brass, white and black. Whilst we're not pursuing such a full on brass concept (Almost went for brass doors), the fundamental colours / materials are pretty much the same - with the addition of some large veiny marble. Seriously. Cannot. Wait.

CREEK HOUSE







WARNING: Stunning property discovered and photo-bomb ensues. It's what happens when you find something so special that you have to post every photo.

Designed and created by Faulkner Architects, the beautiful structure sits amongst the wild nature in remote California. The premise of the brief was "to not hurt the boulders" and the result is a meticulously designed home that floats inconspicuously above the terrain. Now you understand why I posted a million photos, right?

6 BEAUTIFUL CONCEPT STORES


Who doesn't love a concept store? Well I for one love spending a Saturday morning having a browse in an inspirational space. I have plans of my own for some thing in the future, but I'll elaborate on that another time. So for now here's a list of some of my favourites (some visited and some not - yet). Hopefully there's one near you...

But of course; Sukha, Amsterdam. I'd get my retail fix on the weekend when I lived here.
Rikumo, a beautiful store in Philadelphia selling Japanese bits and pieces.
Myconceptstore, Reykjavik. One of my favourite places on Laugavegur.
This list would be incomplete without Merci Merci, Paris.
The Hambledon. A local(ish) store for me.
El Paracaidista, Madrid - on the list.
