Antti Lovag

Le Palais Bulles (The Palace of Bubbles) by Antti Lovag near Cannes is Pierre Cardin's summer house. Begun in 1975 by Lovag, Pierre Cardin bought it in 1989 for 50 million French Francs. A collection of ferro-cement bubbles the interiors are furnished and decorated in a perfect '70s style."The circle is my symbol," says Pierre Cardin. "The sphere represents the creation of the world and the mother's womb. Holes, cones, breasts—I've always used them in my designs." A futurist architect meets a fashion designer known for his space age futuristic designs. OMG!

Penelope Tang


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.

Vicente Wolf

A giant of the American design scene Vicente Wolf. Key words are integrity, simplicity, beauty. His rooms are sensuous cocoons, cool and luminous, sublime and seductive. I think I'm running out of superlatives.

Spring cleaning


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!
