on her plate

When it comes to entertaining, no one pays more attention to tablescapes than Kim Seybert. She is after all the doyenne of tabletop. With her singular vision, she created a business that elevated everyday things like placemats and napkin rings into couture-like fantasies, lifting the ordinary into necessary luxury. The Kim Seybert brand’s tagline is “fashion for the table,” owing to the fact that its founder and designer was previously immersed in the garment industry before venturing out on her own to start her eponymous entertaining-centric business. She channeled her fashion savoir-faire to create a tabletop venture, translating fashion techniques and styles into pieces that you can use to dress up your table. It is easy to spot Kim Seybert’s designs. They play up textures and colors, as well as borrow inspirations…

parisian chic

Art is in the spotlight in this newly designed apartment in Paris. And that’s fitting given its location in the 9th arrondissement in the north of the capital that was once home to many of the elite of the city’s Romantic movement. From writers and actors to musicians and painters, Frederic Chopin, Alexandre Dumas and Claude Monet were among those who called this history-steeped, artistic neighbourhood of Nouvelle Athènes home. But it’s not just the art that plays a starring role in this apartment. A backdrop befitting the quality of the collection shines behind it courtesy of designers Laurent Champeau and Kelli Wilde, who together run Paris-based architecture and interiors studio Champeau & Wilde.

My eyes are very sharp in editing. KYLIE PLATT I FOUNDER, MIRTH Use good quality linens, tableware and flowers. It shows that you appreciate and value your guests. PALASH MITRA I EXECUTIVE CHEF, NEW PUNJAB CLUB At our restaurant we end our meals with a large shot of whisky called the ‘Patiala Peg’; it is about a 90ml serving.

beyond beauty

It’s hard to imagine such a work of art exists in the middle of the countryside of Mornington Peninsula. Just an hour’s drive away from Melbourne, Jackalope Hotels’ debut property is set on a pristine vineyard – intoxicating rural acreage frames a hotel unique in both destination and design. This is the personal project of entrepreneur, Louis Li, who worked with architectural firm, Carr Design Group and multi-disciplinary studio, Fabio Ongarato Design, to envision a modern marvel and has succeeded. The Jackalope guides guests through a sensory journey of spectacular design and dining experiences, delivering a decadent interplay between the ideal and the surreal. At the entrance, a seven-metre tall namesake Jackalope sculpted by Melbourne artist, Emily Floyd, stands sentry, while a black 30-metre infinity pool laps up to the…
