Heavenly

I have seen a few chapel renovations, and I have to say Chapel House is my favorite.  You will find Chapel House in the quaint Flemish village of Bazel.  I like its quirkiness.  A mix of modern and vintage furniture, wonderful artwork, fabulous draperies, beautiful windows, and chunky marble all come together to sing, “Amen.”

Smile

This image makes me smile.  My middle name is ‘wrong way.”  I wonder if map heels would wash away this curse…probably not.

Hiroko Koshino

I am  in awe of the uber-talented Japanese fashion designer Hiroko Koshino.  Hiroko is highly regarded in the fashion world as a pioneer of reinventing traditional Japanese dress.  While her contemporaries favor the avant-garde, Hiroko creates wearable clothes based on ceremonial wear updated with more volume, natural materials, and assymetric designs.  Her hallmark is the modern reinterpretation of the kimono as well as gorgeous textiles and prints of her own design.  Hiroko paints; she owns a gallery; she is considered a master of calligraphy; and she plays the Japanese three-strings guitar.  You know, I guess when you’ve got it, you’ve got it…

Tadao Ando designed Hiroko’s Tokyo home, his first private project.

The Luna2 Private Hotel

Luna2 is a private beachfront hotel in Bali, Indonesia that has been designed by American architect David Wahl, with interiors by owner and interior designer Melanie Hall.

The hotel is called “private” because they only accept one guest booking at a time for the five bedroom Richard Neutra-inspired beachfront house.  If you notice, the hotel does provide a private butler; now that all t’s have been crossed and i’s have been dotted, time to pack….

The Sliding Top by Minimal

I was happy to receive Minimal’s new project, The Sliding Top designed by Stefano Venier.  Minimal states:  While the countertop silently slides ahead through a gentle push, it reveals both a singular induction stainless steel cooktop and a retractable faucet. When it’s open, the top serves as a sophisticated linear table that can be a bar, a serving or a dining space, while closed the kitchen forms a unique block.

Major magic from Minimal…let’s cook…
