editor’s note

The start of a new year heralds opportunities for change, by revisiting the resolutions we have made the year before. If giving your home a design revamp is high on your list, get to it with the abodes and collections that we have lined up for you in this issue.

Likewise our cover story on page 72 (also pictured above) is a soulful house, its owners careful to keep its historic elements intact while integrating antiques and personal mementos elegantly into its refreshed interior. If you’re looking to simply update the look of a specific area, like a bedroom for example, check out the essentials on…

culinary feat

Founded in 1882 in Guastalla, a town in Emilia-Romagna, Italy, Bertazzoni has made a name for itself with quality engineering and a passion for food, while being true to its Italian roots.

The firm is looking to acquaint home cooks in Asia with its new range of built-in appliances, which includes an induction cooktop with an integrated hood, appliance layouts for Asian-style cooking, and a line of kitchen hobs.

Add a Nordic touch to your home with these elegant finds. CREATIVE THREADS Designed by Benjamin Hubert for Muuto, the Strand pendant lamp is also the first collaboration between the award-winning British designer and the Danish company.…
