editor’s letter

AS A MEDIA BRAND WITHIN THE DESIGN INDUSTRY, HOUSE AND LEISURE HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO SHOWCASE THIS, CALLING ATTENTION TO PROJECTS AND VISIONARIES THAT CHANGE SOCIETY. I have always been excited by ‘the new’ – the opportunity to start afresh with a clean slate only to generate something entirely magical that has never existed before. The new offers the occasion to create. Embracing the new has sometimes meant rejecting establishment and forging a new direction for myself, and it’s this path that has worked well in my favour. Rather than follow a career in law, for which I’d already enrolled, at the eleventh hour, during my final exams, I submitted a portfolio to a fashion design school, changing my path forever. That craving for doing something different and new – usually…

the way of the future

‘IF YOU SHOP ONLINE, YOU CAN ONLY EVER HOPE TO OWN SOMETHING, AND AS A BRAND WE WANT TO MAKE OUR AUDIENCE FEEL SOMETHING, LEARN SOMETHING AND, THIS IS THE IMPORTANT BIT, BE PART OF SOMETHING.’ ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.’ –US cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead Now it’s foolishly ambitious to talk about changing the world just one year into what is, at the time of writing at least, a blog. However, looking back at these last couple of months, I’m proud of what The Way of Us has achieved, and it’s all thanks to the small group of thoughtful and concerned citizens writing, photographing, styling, illustrating, making mix tapes, playing live DJ sets,…

sarah ord and nigel pace

Sarah brought attitude and modernity to a build with sturdy bones and an established identity. If you came for a quintessential gentleman’s club – complete with requisite murky lighting, low-hanging cigarette smoke and patchy plum carpet – you might think you’ve wandered into the wrong manor house.

In fact, this grand old dame has had quite a bit of work done. Sarah Ord and Nigel Pace, an interior decorator and hotelier respectively, were responsible for the makeover that took this space from fixer-upper (‘thick dirt…
