We have done a few posts in the past on kitchens but I found Valcucine and just really loved the designs, modern but not fashionable designs. Maybe it was also the bright colours that I personally think people should embrace more in the kitchen instead of the normal off white or wood. Just look at […]
So I thought the Friday was a good day but Saturday ws even better, well it started good by seeing Mark Webber taking pole in the F1, then it was off to Kensington to look at more design inspiration and buy did I find a few good shops. Admittedly I also saw a McLaren SLR […]
We all dream of the perfect house but we also dream of the perfect office and after seeing the office of Nicolas Tye Architects, I’m sure I’ve died and gone to heaven. Wow is all I can say! No wait, I think there are a few more words like stunning! amazing! gorgeous! outstanding! magnificent….should I […]
Simon Heijdens is one of the tutors for the RCA Design Products course and has a decent port folio which means he can talk the talk and walk the walk. This must be why the RCA students come out with such a good education over a piece of paper. The above pictures are from his […]
A couple of weeks back we were in England checking out some of the old world charm of places like Stonghenge and Bath to name a few but we also gave ourselves a day around the much modernised city of Bristol. The drive into Bristol had the usual oohs and ahhs that gorgeous cities normally have […]
Last week I posted a few interesting items I found in LEED Materials A Resource Guide To Green Building, you can check them out here, here and here, and then following on from yesterdays post about countertops it got me looking at the book again. I have seen the normal marble and granite tops and […]

If you read this post, you’ll know we’ve been checking the eco goodness from the book LEED Materials A Resource Guide to Green Building. We’re back with more finds from the building side of things. As you might have read in many of our home and eco related posts, we’re itching to build our own ecological […]
At the end of last year we were in the Architecural museum in Stockholm and on the way out wandered around the gift shop and we brought the book LEED Materials A Resource Guide to Green Building by Ari Meisel. We’ve slowly been going through the well laid out book and looking at all the […]
Being in love with great design means that whenever possible we try and fill our lives with it, whether it’s going to an exhibition, checking out the latest in window shopping or staying in a design hotel. We recently had the pleasure of staying in two design hotels, the first being Hamburgs SIDE hotel which […]
Most of you know my love of all things IKEA but I am now one of the truly lucky IKEA fans out there. Why is that you ask? We have been to the begining of time. A place where Billy bookcases are born and allen keys are as common as pumpkins for halloween and snowflakes […]
Upon planning our recent trip to London, there was one place that we both knew we had to go see. The TATE MODERN not only attracted us for it’s galleries of modern artwork but the building itself is an amazing testament to how good design can withstand the test of time while being flexible enough […]
