I had this image bookmarked for a very long time… I thought it would be a pretty cool thing to do in our home in London which has now three floors + the loft conversion (part 2 here) but I never got around to do it. You can find this in the Wiesler Hotel in the Centre of Graz, Austria. Probably one city I will never visit but the hotel rebranded by Moodley looks pretty amazing so if you’re planning a trip there, here is a nice place for you to stay or have lunch. 1. | 2. | 3. | 4.
Since I came back from Amsterdam last October, I have been keen to add large plants in our home to use them as design pieces. I got the one above from Ikea six weeks ago and I’m glad to say it is still alive and looking very well. I love the tropical look of this plant. Some mornings, when the sun filters through the glass roof of the kitchen and the leaves cast a shade, I get the feeling that I’m in warm L.A. rather than in London in December. I brought back home a few of these Be-Poles paper bags with the intent to cut them in half and use them as placemats for our Christmas party but in the end, I went for something more soothing and natural. Since this bag is made of paper, the best thing to do is to add a plastic recipient within the bag so it doesn’t get soaked when you water your plant.

OK who wants to cry with me? :-) Hello, hello, c’est vite dit…I can’t believe how fast this year went! Frankly, I wish we were still there, enjoying our tree house, the beach, the glorious sun, learning to surf, drinking a large amount of salted water in the process, be together but it has been an amazing Summer for us as a family so no regret. I’m only here in London for a week and then I’m off to Paris on Friday evening for a week to attend a trade show, work on our new Autumn/Winter collection and shoot some inspiring interiors. Work life will be good, lots of exciting and interesting projects to work on but I’ll fill you in later on. Now how was your Summer holidays? Tell me about it!?

I love typography…I also like the visual impact a chosen font will have on the style one wants to convey for a brand, a packaging, a logo or even a page layout (i.e. the Welcome page of our SS/12 catalogue).If you are in the process of launching your brand or company, it is very important you think about what you want to convey with the font or logo because…. first impression counts!So here a few examples of typography, page layout and branding examples I’m collecting on Pinterest….Have a lovely, inspiring evening! 1.
