Juniper Tedhams

I feel head over heels for this Rhode Island home renovated by designer Juniper Tedhams, featured in the latest House Beautiful. I really love the combination of the classic bones of the house - and while I'm not normally one for white walls, I think they really work here - with the mix of early 20th Century furnishings and the semi-industrial elements.

The cabinet on the right of the first image looks suspicioulsy like a Jean-Michel Frank design..and if its an original I'm totally jealous. Otherwise, it looks great in this room.

Also loving the long low look of the living room...the corner bookshelf is genius.

And the brass fixtures in the die for!

Waterfront Kitchen

Its been so damn cold and dreary in Hong Kong lately...I almost feel like I'm living in London (minus the architecture or culture). Today though, we finally have blue skies above. 

Speaking of London, and blue, I am very happy to be able to share with you some pics of a recently completed project by the talented team at London-based Central Design Studio. 'Waterfront Kitchen' is a casual dining space in The Hilton Vienna, on the banks of the Danube.

The palette consists of limed oak, blackened steel, riven slate which is accented with a rich cobalt blue. All the furniture was designed and custom made for the space, including the coloured glass fixtures by Isabel Hamm.

The team worked hand in hand with graphic designer Jon Powell to create all the branded material for the restaurant, ensuring that the restaurant has a consistent feel throughout. A very important part of designing restaurants, for sure.

Well, I for one don't mind being transported here for the afternoon - even if it is just via photos. Enjoy!

Mark Cunningham

One of my favorite designers, Mark Cunningham, has updated his website. Not only are there stunning extra photos of the projects I had seen, but there are also photos of projects I love but didn't realise he was responsible for. What a treat. Here are a few of my favorites....

Hello everyone! Another exciting update about what I've been busy working away on....the magazine I mentioned just before Xmas is going full steam ahead...we have distribution set up in many countries now...just waiting on a few last minute things to come together. We are printing our inaugural issue in early April, so it should hit the news stands later that month.

You'll notice a page at the top of the blog now that links to the website (still under construction), and we ave a facebook page you can like to stay informed of news and other exciting updates ( We're also on twitter (@damag_asia).

Hopefully I'll have more news again soon!
