    It has never been a great secret to anyone, in fact I shout it from the rooftops at every chance I get, but I just love Japanese Architecture and Interior Design. This is for several reasons but the main being that it is so inspiring as to what the Japanese do with small spaces but also they show no fear in keeping things simple […]

    It’s funny how some of our feature projects come about, just yesterday we were talking in the office about how s suppliers in general should make more of an effort with their showroom and office designs, I am sure it’s not the world over but in Dubai there are only a handful of suppliers who we work with that we can truly say have […]

    As an interior architect and designer I often get asked what my favorite brands are in terms of store design or restaurant design, I never quite give a definitive answer as I don’t have a specific favorite brand per se, what I do say though is that I love brands that mix it up a bit, brands that go against the grain, brands that […]

    February is in full swing which in Dubai means that we are in the heart of the exhibition season, we are focusing quite a bit on our projects at Gulfood this year but one thing I do love about the exhibition season is every now and again we see that exhibit that really stands out (excuse the pun) from the crowd and pops.

    I’ve said it time and time before and I’ll say it again, I absolutely love being an interior architect and designer and I love my industry. Design has the power to transcend and I just love the ever evolving nature of interior design and how with a few creative ideas something that was once before can become something oh so different in a matter […]

    As 2013 gets into full swing I can already see a few new trends in the interior design industry but one of the trends I am really loving is the retro chic trend, for the last two years I have been all over industrial rustic design but now I am starting to grow slightly tired of it as it is now being ever so […]

    Since we signed the lease for our new office in Dubai it is fair to say that we have been kind of consumed by office design projects. As our new office is on the small side being only 1000 square foot, we have been looking at how we can make a small place both functional and creative, during our research we came across awesome […]
