Virunga…

…why must beauty and nature be exploited…why must innocence be prey to greed, corruption, and violence?  No answers…only questions.  Visit Virunga to take action.

The Alchemist…

…there are not enough adjectives to describe the work of the Belgian seer of beauty, Axel Vervoordt. “My style is more than it looks,” Vervoordt says. Indeed, his statement is true.  His vision is to inspire artists and audiences through discovering and transmitting the beautiful, with a deep respect for everything that is authentic.

Reiulf Ramstad Architects: At Work…

…today we are at work with RRA Studio in a renovated 19th century villa in Josefines gate 7, near Bislett in Oslo.  The office has been renovated to modern standards while retaining and displaying the character of building. A glass floor between the entry level and the workspaces provides a spatial connection between each floor and exposes the beautiful timber construction.

2015 Design Trends…

…I am pleased to say that my fave color, indigo blue or moody blue, is trending in 2015…herehere, and here.  Smoky glass, geometric tiles, and abstract painterly rugs, will also be featured in fresh designs.  Metals will be mixed.  Remember, however, that you are the trendsetting authority when it comes to your personal space. Let’s take a look…are any of these your favorite elements?

Is indigo absent in your home?  Use art or accessories to introduce the color...
