Hello friends, it's been so long since I posted on here! The break has been welcome after so many years of regular posting, but I feel ready to step back into this familiar spot -  perhaps not as often as I'd like, life is busy, but hopefully enough :) You won't know about my new business venture (which actually isn't that new as I've working on it since the beginning of the year). My creative studio has expanded and I can now list graphic design as one of my design services. Your Stories Branding specialises in boutique brand design for mindful start ups or rebrands. I'm getting more brand design work than anything else right now and it's so great. 

I'd love it if you'd follow me on 👉 Instagram ðŸ™

Stunning work by award winning architects Kennedy Nolan. The new details in this heritage residence were designed with beauty and longevity in mind. Also the brief requested that the residence gently accommodate the growth and evolvement of the family's needs over time.

I'm sure I've posted about this place before (??!!) so maybe it's somewhere in the archives :/ but hey, it warrants a second posting just because its pretty amazing. Norm Architects designed this collaborative work-space for the people at Kinfolk. Their objective was to create a casual working space that felt more like a home than an office space. Employees even invite friends and family into the space to share ideas. 

"Much like human wellbeing, the essence of our work is found in balance – between richness and restraint, between order and complexity," said Norm Architects. "Our vision is to look beyond sight. We want to create spaces that feel good in every way. "

Are you looking for a sustainable / earth friendly makeover for your IKEA kitchen? Architects at Lendager Group have designed in collaboration with Dinesen this stunning recycled kitchen for Reform. Dinesen is a Danish family company that have been producing arguably the most beautiful wooden floors out there. The UP kitchen is created from Dinesen's high quality cut offs. 

 “The kitchen consists of cuts that are left when Dinesen has supplied floors to galleries, restaurants, mansions and other premier establishments. Even though that wood has undergone one of the most extensive production process you can imagine it is impossible to completely eliminate waste. It is those pieces that we are able to give new life.”  – reform.

I'm in love with so much in this beautiful 66 sq m apartment. From the tiny mosaic tiles in the bathroom and the pale chevron floors to the clever drawers hidden in the stairs in the kids bedroom. Not to mention that bed. It's truly perfect.

Design: Emil Dervish
