An epic event in Germany with Miele

Posted on Fri, 25 Aug 2017 by KiM

Good morning dear readers! I wanted to send out a quick post to let you in on a little excitement going on over the next several days. A couple of months back I was sent an email asking me to be a part of something super exciting, and it is finally happening! Tomorrow night I am flying to Berlin with some other Canadian media folks/bloggers to take part with representatives from 46 other countries in an event that has been very secretive. The only info I have been provided is that Miele, the world’s premium German appliance manufacturer, is about to transform the way we taste and prepare food. Hands-down a revolutionary moment in technology in the kitchen. Yes, we are talking some #revolutionaryexcellence. I cannot wait to find out what this is all about!!!

I will be in Berlin, then Gütersloh and then Frankfurt and will head home Wednesday morning. I will be sharing moments here and there on Instagram @kim_dti, our Facebook page, and Twitter so keep an eye out if I have piqued your curiosity!! It seems I may have a bit of free time Sunday afternoon in Berlin and Tuesday afternoon/evening in Frankfurt if anyone wants to meet up (email me @ kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net). 

Boardroom beauty

Too many meetings today! My head is in a spin. Just wish that just one of the boardrooms or offices I sat in today was as fabulous as this one by Studio Slow.

Ivanhoe House

Nestling into the slope this split level house by Melbourne-based Technē Architecture + Interior Design sees light filled public spaces rotating off a central dark spine. Family living is bespoke, understated and stylish all the while not distracting from the beautiful bushland surrounds.

Because I will never stop loving Parisian apartments, here is one in the 1er arrondissement, Haussmann architecture at its finest with some recent renovations and styling by Baldini Architecture and GCG Architecture. I don’t quite get the decor but throw in a Ligne Roset Ploum sofa and I’ll forget any shortcomings. I am dying over the ceiling molding details. !!!!!
