The two sides of Albano Daminato

Albano Daminato is an interior architect and designer. Based in Singapore he has worked with some of the most prestigious design and architectural studios in Australia and Asia. His work has ranged from domestic, commercial and corporate through to retail and hospitality. The first photos highlight his interiors for the Amankora lodges, Paro, Punakha, Gangte, part of the Amanresorts group in The Royal Kingdom of Bhutan. The second set features an apartment remodel combining classic mid century pieces with his own furniture design.In both cases his work is minimal but complex. There is a sense of peace imbued in both. Private and public, sensual yet minimalist. (For those into hospitality design check out his website for inspiration.)

Ruthie Sommers


Somehow neither Jo nor I have posted about Ruthie Sommers. She is hugely popular in the design scene and as everyone knows, was on the cover of Domino's first issue. She is a design goddess and her style rocks beyond words. She only has a few pics of interiors on her site but had many fab photos in her store's (Chapman Radcliff Home) gallery. OH LA LA. I want it all.

Swedish digs

This is one of the coolest bachelor pads I've ever seen. I would guess a woman did not live here, otherwise there would be at least one floral pattern and a colour of some sort, somewhere.
