ed’s note

For this issue, we look towards decor and lifestyle trends across the world, finding inspiration from all corners of the globe for the year ahead. We’ve curated stories and snippets for each that speak to these areas of influence; a round-up of looks and moments that have been informed by a literal and lateral mapping of North, South, East and West. We set out to find four distinct concept homes that each stand for a different lifestyle and approach to their surrounds – representative of a way of life for these unique taste-makers. For North, we explore a cosy nature-inspired home in Germany; in South, we take an exclusive first look at an earthy yet sophisticated design lodge in Morocco; we head East to visit a space-conscious eco cabin in Australia, and to…

when two worlds meet

Morocco may be an ancestral base for Africa’s most luminous craft traditions, but a new school of makers from the region are pushing it’s storied legacy into a bold new direction — and drawing the global design community’s attention while they’re at it. The Marrakech-based studio LRNCE are one of the most colourful, and enigmatic, ambassadors of this next wave. A husband and wife duo, founders of LRNCE, Laurence Leenaert and husband Ayoub Boualam create work that is as much a celebration of their home city’s history, as it is of what they hope design could mean for their own generation. The pair met and fell in love while Laurence was living in Marrakech, and have since fused their own origins in Belgium and Morocco, respectively. This continent’s diverse fusion has informed…

‘ BEAUTY IS A POWERFUL CATALYST, HEALER, & ULTIMATELY, A TOOL FOR LIVING.’ ‘IT’S A SPACE TO ENGAGE WITH, SIT ON, TOUCH, AND SIP FROM.’ The more you know about what Bielle Bellingham does, the harder it becomes to explain what she does. Bielle describes herself as having ‘the ultimate “slash” career’: stylist, shopkeeper, bootstrapper, scout, researcher, producer, creative director, brand builder, interior designer. The list could go on. Bielle approaches these slashes not as hurdles to leap over, but rather, she dances between them, transitioning from role to role. And where the role doesn’t yet exist, she carves out new niches in creative spaces. ‘IT’S A CURATED RETAIL EXPERIENCE, WHERE FURNITURE, ART AND PRODUCTS COLLIDE.’ It’s unsurprising, then, that Bielle’s newest venture, The Garden Room, defies the neatness of a label.
