I am very excited to be able to share these images with you this morning...the new furniture collection from FBC London. The range is designed by FBC founder, interior designer Fiona Barratt-Campbell, and produced by craftsmen in the North of England. The range of finishes is really quite something (check out the hand applied chipped oak on the City Chest, and the mix of bronze, limestone and oak on the Isabella cabinet!) The range is quite extensive, here are just a few of my quick picks. You can head on over to their website for the rest of the collection and more information.

New retail in HK

Its been an exiting week for new store openings in Hong Kong this week....

First off we have Tang Tang Tang Tang, by local legend David Tang. A mix of clothing and homewares, new and antique. Located in the ground floor of the lovely old building where the Pawn is, its so nice to see someone has finally done something with that empty space. Unfortunately I was a little underwhelmed by the stock, and how the space had been designed, especially considering the $ and clout that Tang has. Still, some nice items in there, and probably still worth a visit.

amelie & tulips officially opened on Wednesday in the uber cool POHO neighbourhood. A mix of art, vintage furniture and new scandinavian designs, in a very cool space. Definitely worth a look. And you can have a wander around this ever changing area at the same time. There are plenty of cute places to grab a bite to eat or a good coffee.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Henri Fitzwilliam-Lay

I stumbled upon the work of Henri Fitwilliam-Lay yesterday in the latest House & Garden (UK)...a magazine I don't typically read. But I'm so glad I picked up a copy. Her spaces are so fresh and so new looking...these images are just the tip of the really need to check out her website for more. With natural talent like this, I can't wait to see more for her in the future!

Robert Migotto

My pinterest feed has been littered with images from previously unknown to me designer, Roberto Migotto,  for weeks now. Further investigation of the Brazilian architect's website does not disappoint. The clean, crisp, minimal spaces filled with pieces of varying styles and from different eras reminds me a little of the work of fellow antipodeans BKH and David Hicks. I hope you enjoy!
