Jamie Drake does it again

It's been quite a while since we've posted about Jamie Drake's firm. When I came across this gorgeous apartment filled with their signature bold colour palette, I was in awe, again. GORG!!! With these colours, you can't help but smile.

"The designs for our Manhattan House apartment aspire to replicate the cool, unapproachable beauty of style icon Grace Kelly. Pale icy green frosts the foyer, living and dining rooms with a piquant Kelly green accent panel in the foyer. Refined, couture details such as the ruched trim on the shapely sofa reflect the impeccable manner in which she was always dressed."

Lawson Robb


Extraordinary places for extraordinary people. That's what Lawson Robb state on their website. This London based architecture and interior design firm create rooms that stand out from the crowd. Clean lines and modern finishes with attention to detail are obvious but it's the luxury of space that speaks to me here. Private and public, positive and negative, the joy of having space.

Hot hot hot


We've been cooling off with pools and terraces for the last couple of weeks. Now it's time for a little heat. These retro fireplace beauties are scanned from Heating, House & Garden Guide to Comfort and Economy, Collins London in association with Conde Nast, 1975. Pass me my slippers and cup of cocoa.

ducduc @2Modern

I was just perusing 2Modern's site and came across a company that was unfamiliar to me, called ducduc. Am I ever glad I discovered them! They have the most fabulous modern furniture, mostly for kids and babies. Any soon-to-be parent (or anyone as they also carry some adult furniture) with a modern aesthetic needs to go have look. And they have so many colour options and fabric options like Marimekko and Knoll.


"ducduc is a collaborative design house based in new york city, designing lifestyle furniture utilizing four core principles: quality, environment, community, and design. All ducduc pieces are hand-made by expert craftsmen. Their hardwoods come from local, sustainably managed forests in New England and they use only non-toxic, pollutant free finishes. They own their factory in Connecticut, assuring that everything is made-here, and allowing ducduc to minimize both their waste and carbon emissions. All ducduc pieces are timeless and versatile, letting you express your own creativity and style throughout your home and into your child's rooms."
