It’s such a classic, you finish refurbishing one room and either you think of the next project (even if I swear I won’t do anything for a while) or you’ll just see something you like more and wish you did differently.
In my case, I discovered Elan Kitchens a lovely showroom in west London and wish I had seen their kitchen designs before I started.
They are official retailer for the German brand Leitch Kitchens a brand that I hadn’t heard of before. They create high-end quality kitchens, using carefully selected materials with an ecological process.
We finally decided to start thinking of our small flat renovation. Kitchen and bathroom are desperately needing some love and refresh. While looking for some inspiration online I started thinking about material and ceramic we wanna use (stone will be a dream but is a bit out of our budget). So last weekend I was in Italy and I discovered some new lovely ceramic manufactured, have a look:
Last weekend it was Openhouse here in London, the most amazing architectural festival that gives free public access to lots of buildings in the capital and around the country. While most of the people generally hit for the iconic buildings in the city center, this year I opted to stay local and I discovered a beautiful gem just around the corner from my house:
This new build is designed by 6aArchitects and is nestled tightly into an irregular corner plot in North London and is split into three apartments.
The client – an artist and restaurateur – briefed the architects with a series of her own photographs depicting the stacking of everyday objects. The result is a minimal space, with a very strong character. The materials are rough ready, a perfect combination of wood, exposed concrete, brass and scratched white stucco.

The featured staircase is the fluid that connects the 3 apartments. The top floor apartment is the most beautiful one and has been decorated by the homeowner with an exquisite taste using a mix of old and new pieces.
You probably know that I love discovering new independent furniture brand. This month I discovered Nutsandwoods, a new Berlin based furniture design studio that produces lovely pieces.
Looks like it’s been ages since my last post, but lots of things happened in life lately and I’ve been doing few little trips that kept me very busy.
But finally summer arrived also in London, when most of the people here struggled with the warm temperature, I’ve been enjoying it so much, and wish we had a garden in our house to fill in with lovely furniture.
So here’s my little list of best garden outdoor furniture:
- Skargaarden – Kryss Lounge Chair
- Made.com – Edson Concrete Stool
- Habitat – Tico Table
- OKDesign – Point Chair
- Habitat – Maui Armchair
- Trimm Copenhagen – Moon Pouf
- Röshults – Garden Easy Chair
- Massproductions – Tio Small Table
- Cane-Line – On the Move Table
- Menu – WM String Armchair
I Hope that could be useful to any of you with a nice garden. Enjoy the Sun!
