The talented Mr Hicks

June 28th, 2013 (No Comments)

I love it when an interiors designer fuses natural textures like timber or stone, back with slick high gloss surfaces or polished concrete. The same goes for decorative elements like when a rustic wrought-iron chair can look just as comfortable sitting atop a flashy zebra rug, without looking out of place. For me, interior designer […]

Bottled couture- Ivoire by Balmain

June 21st, 2013 (No Comments)

In June of 2009 in San Francisco’s Union Square, I was aimlessly browsing the fragrance section of Barney’s when I stumbled upon an elegantly bottled Ambre Gris by Balmain. And i fell in love.
