Sunday at the barbershop

I love my hair stylist, but he works out of a rowhouse he owns that he never really decorated and is waiting for an offer so he's not putting any money into it. Because I spend at least 2 hours a day there every 8 weeks, it would be a much more pleasant experience if it looked as awesome as this barbershop (but he often brings his dogs, so that makes up for the lack of design). One Love Barbershop in Nice, France was designed by Baldini Architecture and I adore the somewhat random and dark colour palette. That shade of green is delish.

Miami Renaissance

It's almost the weekend and it's time to party. Put on a disc from a disco diva and pour yourself a drink. I love this Miami apartment by L.A. based design firm Studio Hus. Offbeat and upbeat, vintage and high end, retro and right now. It's the rebirth of 80's cool.

Stalking an iconic architect

I'm stalking a 2016 Palm Beach, Sydney house by renowned Australian architect Glenn Murcutt. Conceived of concrete, steel, toughened glass and black zinc cladding, it touches the land gently, perched between sandstone outcrops and Angophora gums. Functional, sustainable living in the trees close to the sea. Link here while it lasts.
