secret oasis

expat American designers Samuel and Caitlin Dowe-Sandes love a good house project. Since moving from California to Marrakech 10 years ago, they have updated and remodelled three houses for themselves. Each one has offered a great opportunity to experiment with colour and pattern, helping to spur new ideas that feed into their collections for Popham Design, the stylish cement tile business they founded together not long after their arrival in Morocco. Their new house, in Gueliz, is the family’s most substantial home yet, arranged over two storeys with a private garden forming a buffer zone between the family and the city beyond. “The easy way of living in Gueliz was a really big attraction for us,” says Caitlin. “We can walk to our daughter’s school in five minutes and to the…

PERFECT IMPERFECT byKAREN McCARTNEY (Murdoch books, $60) McCartney explores the various perceptions of imperfection and serendipity, along with a little organic chaos. From a weekender in Montauk with a ‘summer camp vibe’ to the visual and visceral impact of the ‘ugly’ or merely usually unnoted, McCartney, along with photographer Sharyn Cairns and stylist Glen Proebstel, guides the reader on a journey through the spaces of artists who celebrate incidental beauty. SURRENDER byJOSHUA YELDHAM (Picador Australia, $50) Sydney artist Joshua Yeldham — painter, sculptor, photographer and Emmy award-winning filmmaker — has dedicated his first book to his daughter, Indigo.

hay fever

IN TRUE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of the idiom that opportunity should be seized before it goes, Richard Munao, managing director of Cult, has made hay while the sun shines. To be specific, he has spent the summer months ‘storing’ Hay — the Danish design company known for nurturing new talent — into a standalone Sydney store, and is now reaping the rewards. Or so suggest the hordes of in-the-know designers streaming into the Surry Hills shop of Scandi-design-candy. “Well, it’s not so much a shop as a mini-emporium that masquerades as a contemporary Copenhagen apartment,” says Munao of the flagship that is a first for Hay in Australia, “one in which the company’s catalogue has come to life.” For those not familiar with the Copenhagen-based brand that has taken the humanism and craft…
