Please forgive my lack of posts throughout the week, with November on our heels we made a quick decision to bring the Bangkok – Chiang Rai trip forward, so as not to clash with projects back home. Bangkok was as colourful as ever. We arrived at the weekend market, prepared with large trolley bags, water […]

CREATING GREAT SPACES

Posted on 10/23/12 in homelife, No Comments

Rooms that draw you in are rooms that are lived in. You can always tell a static room, a room that ‘just is’. Creating places with warmth is a layering process. The shape and the function, for the area in question, should determine the colour palette, and then from here we add texture with flooring, […]

Lighting is such an integral part of any fitout. It can transform an average space into a light filled sanctuary, add drama to an entry or simply offer great task lighting so you can get your work done.

CHOOSING COLOUR

Posted on 10/10/12 in homelife, 1 Comment

SPACE TO BREATHE

Posted on 10/06/12 in homelife, No Comments

Sometimes, not often…but occasionally, it is necessary to create a little space in your world. Not just the physical meaning of space but your inner being…your soul. Today was that for me. A day to give myself permission to think out-loud, re-arrange and play freely, without a clock in sight, a meeting to attend…or a […]

SUMMER IS ON ITS WAY.

All we need is a little slither of sunshine and we are sorting through the closet looking for that summer top we loved wearing last year, or heading to the garden to pull out the weeds and clean down the pots…SUMMER IS ON ITS WAY! With the warmer months comes a new light, a new […]
