Bayside BeautyThe best architecture combines aesthetic beauty and functionality in a perfect whole. It forms buildings that are one with their environment, that are designed to last. At Bayside, visionary Australian architect Rob Mills’ ultra-contemporary apartments are infused by just such qualities. Signature touches found in his iconic Melbourne homes — clever use of light and air, simple palettes, and organic materials such as natural stone and oak timber flooring — result in fourteen apartments as spacious, luxurious and refined as the boulevard on which they sit.

5 ways to curate better contentYes, it has been a long time since I've shared an advice post - and trust me, it's not because I don't want to. Truth is I've been snowed under (figuratively) and I always prefer to sit down and think about a short and to-the-point way of replying to your questions. How I curate content is a common question and I can understand why. Knowing what to post and when to post is taken very seriously in the Blogging world. Much like a magazine, we have to be on top of our game and know about current events and trends that are in sync with our vision and style. I understand that, though it doesn't have to be so strict. I cannot talk for every Blogger out there but this is how I choose to curate my content. If you do things differently, please, feel free to chime in and tell us all about it because I'm interested myself.
The Kettle BlackSo much girl power in my posts this week. The creative women of Studio You Me are Kestie Lane and Hana Hakim. Their partnership is based on a mutual love of design, food, art and all things unique and obscure. This love of design unites them yet they each bring unique strengths and their individual sense of style and confidence to the practice. Their vision of The Kettle Black is simply magnificent. The Kettle Black has a quiet confidence nestled under the belly of an Elenberg Fraser apartment tower on Albert Road, South Melbourne. The light filled café is elegant and warm, it is authentic and hand crafted and is genuinely a feel good space with a friendly hustle. The black crafted steel hanging waiters stations and communal tables add the tough edge whilst the hexagonal marble tiles and brass detailing bring a refined elegance and luxury to the café. The true beauty and innovation of this project is how the design slowly reveals itself with a series of vignettes within the interior, an ordinary concrete construction pipe transformed into an elegant brass lined water basin. Stunning.

C O L L E C T I O N 0 3The image above has completely hypnotized me today, what a stunning portrait. The feeling, the colors and the pose have somehow inspired my day as well as that beautiful quote, reminding me to take care of myself and encouraging me to retake my yoga sessions today. Life, as usual has been incredibly busy and as always, I'm loving it. People no matter who, are such an encouragement and inspiration in my life and I happen to be working for some Artists that are so special that almost seem unreal. I'm overwhelmed and grateful.
How are you?
