Colour trend... black, white and yellow!

For some reason this colour scheme keeps jumping out at me, and not just for interiors. I love the bold use of black and white together (really, who doesn't?) but throwing in that delicious yellow just makes me want to smile.

Going Green

You are probably thinking this is going to be an environmental blog post but think again, because lately we've been inspired by the outdoors and beautiful green landscapes and have decided to share with you a few images of bathrooms surrounded by lush greenery. Bringing a bit of plant life into the bathroom is a great way of warming up what can sometimes be a clinical, stark area of the home. OK, so some of the following images may be a little OTT but they are the prefect encouragement to add a little green to your bathroom.

Tamizo Architects

Tamizo Architects are a group of young, fresh architects which work and live by the design mantra of less is more made famous by their idol, Mies van der Rohe. These Polish architects keep popping up on some of my favourite design blogs and I can ignore them no longer! So I've decided to post some of my favourite images of their work, and hopefully they inspire you as much as they did me!

Located in the heart of Berlin, the Nhow hotel is the first of its kind, a hotel dedicated to music!
This hotel is for serious musos and music lovers, offering round the clock concierge services to deliver a Gibson guitar to your suite (because who doesn't have a midnight craving for some rockin' riffs?).

The rooms are equipped with the latest technology; IPod connections, over 30 TV and 100 music stations and state of the art entertainment systems.
The hotel also houses not one but two recording studios, their own music manager and is regularly hosting some of the hottest gigs in Berlin.

The interior is designed by none other than the colour genius, Karim Rashid and hosts an array of guests which include business travellers, international jet-setters, party animals and the biggest bands. True to Rashid's iconic style the interiors feature fresh colours, rounded forms and clear lines that perfectly reflect sound waves.

This dynamic space is constantly moving and changing. The art and multimedia displayed throughout are arranged 3 times a year to reflect the current trends in fashion, music and art. Nhow have even collaborated with Berlin graffiti artists to design one of the walls of the hotel with a mural inspired by the Berlin wall.

I have a feeling this is one hotel that rock stars won't be trashing.

Frost Accessories

I am very excited and proud to announce that the amazing Frost range of accessories (spotted by yours truly at Melbourne DesignEx this year) is now on display and available through Candana!

Established in 2002, Frost Design has filled a gap in the market with a range of designer accessories which scream style. They are constantly working alongside external designers to come up with specific ranges to suit the architectural/design industry and aren't afraid to do something different and push the boundaries.

I had the pleasure of meeting Hans Jorgen Frost at Designex, the enthusiasm and excitement about his product exudes from him and its easy to see why.

Lulu is a gorgeous range of hooks perfect for, well everywhere! They are a simple yet sophisticated hook and are available in 6 different finishes. These great hooks (which we've nicknamed 'the speakers') are a perfect addition to any style bathroom.

Camouflage, designed by Busk + Hertzog is such a beautiful product it could easily just be mounted as a sculptural wall piece. Camouflage is available in two sizes and many finishes including two greens, plum and yellow!

Wishbone is another spectacular range comprised of side-tables (perfect for freestanding baths) and freestanding coat hooks available in numerous bright colours.

Many of these ranges have won design accolades including the prestigious Red Dot and Good Design awards.

Basically, I could go on forever describing how fabulous each range is, so the best thing to do would be to check them out on our website or come into the showroom and see them in person!

Claw foot baths

I think with claw-foot baths you either love them or hate them.
But either way, you can't deny that these bathrooms are pretty amazing.
