It takes a special kind of person to come up with the idea of a moat (2 actually) and a bridge in a loft. That special kind of person in this case is David Ling, an architect. He converted a former dental factory in NYC into his own work/live space, with a moat and bridge separating his office and living space, and another moat separating the living space from the bedroom mezzanine. Now that’s ingenius, and breathtaking.
It’s a pride of lions, a flock of seagulls, a band of minstrels. Stylists? A curated grouping, a vignette, a composition of stylists? Whatever you call it you’ll love the Svenska Stylistgruppen. (Ah! You call them Swedish Stylist’s Group!) Varied vibes but all instantly recognisable as the hottest look in the design world at the moment – Scandinavian.

I was perusing the internet yesterday looking for blog material when I happened upon the portfolio of Sally Conran, a London based stylist and art director specialising in interiors, still-life, food and lifestyle. Sally’s training in interior architecture gives her an understanding of space and composition. Her work completely blew me away – each space so beautifully styled I found myself inspecting every inch of detail so I didn’t miss a thing.
Exotic location and exotic design. Stunning minimalist homes that sensitively address their surroundings, reverence their culture and are simply beautifully designed. Indian architect Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai weaves his spell with local materials and traditions, craftsmen who take time, clients who understand. These are loci of calm in a monsoon that is India.
Last year Dan Davis introduced us to his new interior design firm, after having left given up his career in advertising. Two and a half years later they are now a staff of 5 and are currently working on 14 projects, ranging from large commercial projects to intimate tablescapes. Such creativity and quirky touches. Thanks Dan for sharing with us again!
