art of refinement

One of the things that I tell everyone I meet is that design should be accessible to everybody, regardless of income bracket, gender or age. That’s an important factor to keep in mind, especially for young and/or first-time homeowners, because all it takes is some effort to style up a living space. However, for those who have reached a certain point in their appreciation of outstanding design, and who are on the hunt for something unique and distinctive, they will be glad to know that there is a whole universe of creativity and beauty worth investing in. That is the topic that we will delve into within this issue; the many new ways to enjoy the finer things in life when it comes to home and interior decorating. For me, I’m an avid…

nouveau luxe

What does luxury living mean to you? Gone are the days when living the fine life meant splurging on bulky furniture finished in ostentatious gold and velvet trimmings. Modern luxury is an attitude, a preference for appreciating the details in life instead of going for the obvious. Luxury is having the space for nothing, and understanding that, sometimes, all a room needs is a single statement piece to make a big impression. That is the meaning of mod-luxe. The Canape armless banquette sofa is part of Pierre Frey’s new furniture line. Visit www.romanez.com.sg for more information.…

the pantheon iconic rome hotel

Located in the historical heart of Rome, The Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel opened in May 2018 after an 11-month makeover by Studio Marco Piva. Part of the Autograph Collection – Marriott’s portfolio of upscale hotels – the five-star property occupies a building that has been brought back to its original function. Initially known as the hotel Bologna when it was built in the 1800s, the structure became offices for the Senate of the Republic, before this latest rebirth two years ago. Studio Marco Piva carefully led the renovation, introducing contemporary features that both echo and reinterpret the majestic architectural environment. “The research focused on the shapes, colours and surfaces of the surrounding monuments, and on how they change during the day because of the special Roman light,” the team says. For the…
