ed-in-chief’s note

Although the tiny house movement has been around for a while, it’s one of those trends that’s not likely to be going anywhere but… stratospheric, perhaps? With so many of us seeking to simplify our lives and, with it, diminish our possessions, the question is, really, how much is enough? I hold onto the fantasy that, one day, I’ll have a small writer’s cabin of my own in the woods or near the ocean, a blissfully quiet place in which to retreat with books and a journal (yes, and a tape-measure for some invariable interior curation).Spaces that offer the sort of conditions conducive to reflection and serenity appear to be more in demand than ever, and among them are some architectural and design gems that beg to be shared.…

the stylish life of lisa folawiyo

Lagos Hudson armchair by Didier Gomez for Ligne Roset Benson coffee table(PHOTOGRAPHS GALLOIMAGES/ GETTYIMAGES/ALAMY) When Folawiyo wore the first skirt she’d ever designed 14 years ago, she knew that it marked the beginning of a new journey.

Unobtrusive rhino wood was chosen for the walls, floors, ceilings and decking, while the interiors feature a neutral, earthy colour palette that reflects the shades present outdoors. In the living area, a massive stone fireplace acts as an arresting focal point and provides easy-to-generate warmth, reminding one of the abode’s commitment to sustainable living. Adorned with vintage accessories and bird prints that add…
