Philippe Starck


Philippe Starck is one of the most, if not the most, famous designer in the world. This may be because he is unbelievably prolific, having designed anything and everything - yachts, toothpicks, taps, scooters, toothbrushes... He is a design genius in my books because of his creation of the Louis Ghost chair. I'd like to do a couple posts on Mr. Starck this week because he is too good to be featured only once.

de Gournay

The China Club post had me thinking of beautiful chinoiserie wallpaper. de Gournay's hand painted wallpapers, fabrics and porcelain are at the very top end of the decoration market and they have traditionally specialised in 18th century Chinoiserie and 19th century French designs.They also specialise in reinterpreting these designs and colours to create a contemporary feel. de Gournay's principal wallpaper collections are Chinoiserie, French 19th century Papier Peints Panoramiques and Japanese & Korean designs. All their wallpapers are hand painted and the design team can create fabrics, blinds and porcelain to complement them or to contrast with them. Swoon....so beautiful!

Kara Mann

Kara Mann is a Chicago based interior designer specialising in high end residential and commercial design. Expressing lifestyles, experiences and personal aesthetics through design is the company's objective. What drew me to her work was her use of bold photographic art works.

Flickr's srk1941 has an amazing set titled "Baldwin Hills Village". The description says: "Photographs of the house from the last two years, as it slowly starts coming together." He has some pretty incredible furniture. See for yourself.

We've been here for a month!

One month...OMG. It's been so much fun but lots of work! The most exciting thing is all the friends we've made and all the support you've given us. Kim and I only met a couple of months ago on Flickr and look at us now. So the cupcakes are a thank you for all of you who visit and like what you see. Happy first month birthday to all of us! We're really keen to know where you all come from. Let us know in the comments. Thanks again for your support.
