Confession time! I’m fascinated by the Jenner/Kardashian domestic lifestyle that they put out there for us to see on TV and social media. I worry that they’re always eating salad out of plastic packaging bowls. I find it charming that they all attend home gym, set up in Kim’s garage. And I’m astounded in a big-eye way by their dressing rooms which look like a Disneyland of luxury logos. Love them or hate them, the family knows how to woo us with a combo cocktail of relatable and totally off-the-charts, beyond-achievable lifestyle. In Kylie’s own home, she’s taken that concept to a cool new level.

DESIGN PILLAR-TO-POST FORM Get ready for a robust new shape in furniture – the over-scaled cylinder, or seemingly awkward and indelicate column leg. English artist and designer Malgorzata Bany, who distributes through The New Craftsmen, produces superbly sculptural pieces of altar-like heft in the most exquisite almost-nothing-there colours, a complexity which make them all the more intriguing. thenewcraftsmen.com ART NAME TO KNOW Fresh from his super-compelling show at Stevenson, Thierry Oussou looks to be the bold new face of African abstract expressionism. The works – a series of new ink, acrylic and oil-bar on paper – captured his responses to living and working in Johannesburg (he is from Benin) and the visual, aural and psychic impact of his time spent in the city.

karen newman shares her thoughts on... #3 you’re in: the entrance hall

[2] Entrance halls create the first impression of the interior of your house and your style – adorn yours to make a statement. A striking work of art grabs attention and generates conversation from the get-go.
