I mentionned Peneloppe Tang's beautiful porcelain in a post a few days ago. She had emailed me to thank me for the mention but since we usually post only interiors I hadn't included any photos. I was feeling a bit guilty and since we post about pretty much anything on weekends, I thought this was a great opportunity to show her work. Her pieces are handmade and thus one-of-a-kind, of oxidation-fired porcelain and hand-mixed pigments. STUNNING.
Time for a change. Kim and I wanted a fresh look, something that reflects the colour trends we're seeing and something that lets the amazing pictures shine through without distracting backgrounds. We also wanted a banner that reflected our aim of inspiring you the readers. Wings to let your imagination take flight. What do you think? Isn't Kim one talented girl? It's all her lovely work!

The Semiramis hotel in Athens was Karim Rashid's first hotel project. "The Semiramis is an intimate hotel that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design. It is a place for new contemporary experiences, to enjoy, work, and relax in a truly memorable way."
