About 7 years ago I brought three Anglepoise Type 75 table lamps (all in off white) for my then new abode and ever since then they have been in daily use in my office as well as my bedroom - so it's easy to say that I am a fan of these classic and timeless lights.
When I saw this collaboration between two iconic British brands, Anglepoise and Paul Smith to create a limited edition Anglepoise + Paul Smith piece - I thought you just couldn't get better than this. The final result has the classic silhouette of the Type 75 lamp, however this time with the unmistakeable colour and humour of Paul Smith. So cool - and yes, they are available in New Zealand through Cult Design.

|Club bar at High Road House, Chiswick, West London|
About four years ago, I posted here about High Road House in Chiswick, West London. High Road House is part of the Soho House brand, which was founded in 1995 with their private members' club for those in the film, media and creative industries. Since then they have expanded with Houses all over the world as well as hotels, restaurants and spas. Earlier on, High Road House was designed by Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse, a designer whose work I admire.
However this year, Alexander Waterworth Interiors teamed up with Soho House to inject a new lease of life in the spaces and recreate an overall classic and timeless club experience.

I've yet to visit the original Bills restaurant in Sydney, however I can say I have enjoyed food by Bill Granger through his recipe books and it is delicious.
Check out his latest new restaurant, Bills Hawaii in Waikiki - it carries on the same qualities that all of Bill Granger's restaurant have - sunny, easy going and generous. With the beach bar on the lower level and the dining upstairs, these interiors reflect the relaxed island vibe of Honolulu so well.

|The kitchen - before|
There's nothing like a good before and after to see how an interior has been transformed. So here's a large renovation that was finished earlier this year - we worked on this project in two stages and during the first stage we worked mainly on the lower level of the house, which included this kitchen.
As you can see in the before photos, the kitchen was behind a wall and separated from the living areas. There was also a small 'in between' space between the kitchen and the main living space that was not being fully utilised.
So for the new kitchen, we removed the non-structural wall, expanded the overall space and created a new dining area. It's quite a transformation and the clients are happy with the results!

The latest Est magazine is now out and this issue features this lovely Melbourne home by Whiting Architects. This classic and contemporary renovation has been beautifully done and with its tight material palette of timber, shade of whites and greys (my favourite combination!) means I'm already hooked. Read all about it and see more photos here.
