A stunning piece of architecture and one of my many dream homes. Set within a forest and amongst hills, the house is a designed to fuse with the nature of the terrain. Using concrete, wood and glass at its main construction, the architects aimed to purpose the space without demolishing trees and the surrounding forest. Photography by Andrés Asturias.

The sun is shining, it is March and as mad as the march hare and as drunk as the Drunken House family, we are taking 30% off our prices until Easter.

Shop Here.

That is it folks, the Valentines sale is over, people went mad in the shops buying ‘special’ ready meals and chocolate or strawberry focused sweet treats, we went and did our food shop, not the best idea as it was awfully busy, and it is half-term here in the UK, children everywhere. I digress.

In other news, have you seen Jamie Oliver’s new pizza restaurant ‘Union Jacks’, designed by Blacksheep. It is full of carefully curated kitsch.Pics from Fast Code Design

New York Loft by Charlotte Macaux Perelman

I love the combination of sleek modern design, like the stainless steel kitchen and the wooden interior, warmth in an industrial environment. Check out the pics and this info straight from Charlotte’s portfolio.

“This historic artist’s loft was ‘reinvisioned’ as a gracious one room home for a couple, taking care to respect the old spirit of the place. A sixty-five foot wood library element provides organization to the space nad serves to define a day bed area with stunning view of the city in two directions. An industrial metal kitchen, custom-made in Italy break the rhythm of the library and opens up to spectacular north facing 22′ high sky lights.

While the main space  keeps its original soul, the bathrooms and dressing areas have been designed like minimal luxury men’s store, an iconic contrast in grey marble and matching cerused (limed) wood panelling.”

Things that make Christmas nice…

I always like to think that making things yourself to decorate or eat around Christmas adds to its charm. That is to get away from the commercialism of it all and spend time at home doing things with family, friends or quietly by yourself. That being said, there is no doubt that someone else may be able to do something much better than ourselves, and for that we have ETSY. We love Etsy is allows us to set up our own shop but really we love it because it exposes us to amazing talent from all over the world. Here are some our favourites for hand-made Xmas decorations.
