I want to grow up to be a stylist! A little too late I think. When I see a portfolio like that of Karina Garrick my mind spins with inspirational ideas. Karina began her career with Conran Associates, working directly with Sir Terence Conran and has extensive experience as a freelance stylist, working for a range of glossy interiors magazines and clients including Habitat and Laura Ashley. Love her work.
Sharm (whose family is from Malaysia but who has just bought her first apartment in Oslo, Norway with her husband) sent me a link to paradise and I've been daydreaming over the photos ever since. "Sekeping Serendah is a private retreat attempting to tread lightly on the land. The very transparent and open sheds celebrate the beauty of the natural environment surrounding them. The sheds are intentionally kept basic and free from lavishness. They are seen more as ‘glorified tents’ to provide basic shelter for its inhabitants as they commune with the land." Sekeping Serendah, an hour drive north of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, consists of 5 sheds set within 5 acres of tropical rainforest. The glass, mud and timber sheds float gently over the forest floor beside a bubbling brook. Terima kasih Sharm!
