Designed by Danish studio Norm Architects, Reydon Grove Farm is located in the Suffolk countryside in England. A very long, single story residence, it features huge rows of glass windows providing expansive views of the garden and farmland beyond. The combination of of black joinery and narrow vertically positioned cladding creates a clean, sleek exterior that matches existing buildings on the site. With a focus on transparency, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Ronn of Norm Architects say the design of the facade allows nature be an integral part of the interior, framing views of the extraordinary settings. Split into two main sections by a central hall, one section houses a big, open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen, while the other contains the more private bedrooms and bathrooms. Bathed in natural light, the beautiful interior was designed by Sofie Brunner and features an enviable collection of furniture and design pieces by top Danish brands including Menu, and &Tradition.
Today's post could also be my own personal wishlist, with gorgeous new finds including lighting, ceramics and art. Lightweight and poetic, the handcrafted Kurage table lamp was created for Foscarini by Italian designer Luca Nichetto and the multidisciplinary studio Nendo which was founded by Japanese architect Oki Sato. Kurage means jellyfish in Japanese and the lamp resembles a sea animal which dances through the seas cradled by a suffused light. This beautiful effect is created with the use of the finest Japanese washi paper.
I'm currently in the process of sourcing living room pieces for an exciting interior project and there are lots of things from Father Rabbit catching my eye, including this beautiful new woven jute rug and Warranbrooke artworks. Make sure you also checkout the Father Rabbit Interiors Catalogue, Volume 01. Introducing The Temperate, The Botanist & Mr Fastidious, these three very different characters give their interpretation of Father Rabbit's aesthetic, with beautifully styled rooms and how to achieve each look.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and to my NZ friends, enjoy the long one!
A couple of months ago I was invited to customise my own classic pair of bespoke brogues by Australian Footwear label habbot. Not only have I admired the luxury range of Italian leather shoes for some time, I love the idea of creating a bespoke, one-off creation. An exciting concept dreamed up by habbot founder Annie Abbott, it is currently on offer to customers until the end of October.
The My habbot project is an Australian nationwide offer. To request a customisation design pack which includes leather swatch samples, a size chart and style imagery to assist you in designing your habbot brogue, click here. One-one-one consultations are also available at habbot's The Strand Melbourne boutique (Shop 10, 250 Elizabeth Street).
For the next two Friday nights they will be hosting bubbles in store, and Annie will be there offering assistance with designs and talking clients through the making process!
Final designs submissions must be received by October 31, 2016, with an estimated delivery time of January 2017.
