Hiltl

Another quick trip to Zurich this week meant lunch at the beautiful Hiltl. The Hiltl only serves an abundance of beautiful vegetarian food from all over the world – so delicious! The decor was amazing, elegant and organic. I loved the grand views into the kitchen and galleys through the big open windows in the […] Read more…

The Modern Pantry

I discovered the Modern Pantry last year when I included it in a news feature. There was something about its airy and gentle decor of dove greys and whites that always stuck in my mind. Housed in a listed Georgian building in Clerkenwell, The Modern Pantry is comprised of a restaurant space as well as […] Read more…

Behind the Scenes at the Museum

On Friday, we ventured along to the aforementioned ‘Late Night at the V&A’. The atmosphere after hours was exciting and it felt really naughty and special to be in the museum after dark! Having not been to a late night before, I have to say it was spectacularly confusing…we were given a schedule of events […] Read more…

The installation was created in the Saint-Paul Saint-Louis church in Paris during the annual Nuit -Blanche all-night festival in October. The […] Read more…

Branching out

David Wiseman is a US based large scale ceramacist, creating delicate and wonderous fairytale sculptures and installations to adorn and embellish the most fantastical interiors. The work reminds me of what might have been within the decadent interiors of Imperial Russia. This ceiling sculpture is composed of more than 500 porcelain blossoms and nearly 100 […] Read more…

Glass Houses

Dale Chihuly is known for revolutionizing the glassworks movement by breaking free of the idea of solitary artists working alone in a studio, and has embraced the advantages of collaborative teams and the unusual division of labor within the creative process. In this way he has been able to develop complex, multipart sculptures of dramatic […] Read more…

Confiserie Sprungli
