Falling for design

I have fallen in love with design and decor all over again and it is the genius behind TCHV and Tcherassi Vilato I have to thank (although I’m not sure if I’ve just fallen their vivacious nature,  their cheeky personalities or actual product – but I suppose one gives rise to the other).

Angelica and Jacob define what design should be, an eclectic expression of style, fun and quality – pushing the boundaries away from the popular Scandinavian minimalism   to embrace bold colours and fresh concepts

 Founding architect’s of TCHV  this young duo stretch the imagination to create beauty in every building or product they conceive. I’ll be honest; I scroll through interior after interior, building after building and product after product, loving what I see, but never has my heart raced faster, or eyes opened as wide as when I saw the capabilities of these two and what excites me is their ability to use shapes, lines and light to deliver outstanding designs.  It’s no wonder they feature in editorials world-wide!

To you two! Salut!












Jagged Edge

 Federal takes its name from a small town of country New South Wales in Australia, and has a sister cafe in Madrid.
The interior is a designers dream; jagged edges throughout, large communal dining and simplicity pedant lighting – felt like I was sipping my skinny latte on Swan Street.

My recommendation –  the yoghurt & granola ❤

Thank you Federal Cafe – you are my home away from home!

Enjoy – Joy Susanna

NYC flavours – BCN Stylin’

A little insight into JS -I have an obsession researching real-estate and properties from around the world to see what’s out there. The other day I found this downtown New York style loft, in Barcelona and I had to share it! Now run as a studio hired per hour this refurb’d warehouse is my idea of perfect interior design, natural, simplistic, welcoming and homey. Photo credit to Studio 115, more photos here;

London at Last

Hello London!

It’s been a crazy few days hitting the streets of London to seek, discover and learn since touching down late Monday night. Tuesday was ‘get lost’ day – I think I must have caught over ten tubes, I wandered the streets about Buckingham Palace, shared shisha with the owners of Baku Bistro (http://bakubistro.co.uk) on Mayfair and strolled Oxford Street at sunset (it was not even 4pm). Yet, the highlight thus far was meeting with interior designer Gurvinder Khurana at the Booking Office at the historic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in King’s Cross last night.

Designing for 18 years Gurvinder and her husband Nigel Tresise juggle business EAT:ID (http://eat-id.com) whilst raising their two boys just outside of London, her humility the standout from our conversation. The mostly commercial designer, works to see clients lives improve through creating functional beautiful spaces, she shared of a nurse working for 15 years without private retreat from the craziness of the ward – when the nurse saw the space she was moved to tears.It was an honour to meet with such an experienced and talented designer.

Gurvinder shared her insights of shopping about London – of which are listed on my discovery list for the next few days – watch this space for those.

Enjoy
