'Colour excites me. As a child, I would feel a rush of excitement when opening a box of crayons'
It's no secret that I love colour, so when I came across a New York townhouse designed by Ghislaine Vinas I knew this was the start of a design infatuation.
Ghislaine (pronounced "ghee-lan") was born in The Netherlands, raised in South Africa and currently lives in New York, so it's no wonder her work has a certain international sensibility and freedom about it.
Ghislaine's work is just out-of-this-world amazing and the way she uses colour and texture make me want to cry tears of design joy!
It's very theatrical and almost cartoon-like but it works and transports you to your own contemporary wonderland.
There is a sense of fun, humor and enthusiasm in Ghislain's work, which I find so refreshing and could never tire of.
yes, they are neon cloud lights! And green Vola! whoa.
Italian for hand made, Made a Mano are a Danish tile company who supply gorgeous hand-painted and hand-printed ceramics made from Cotto and lava stone (from Mount Etna in Sicily!).
The company was founded in 2001. Their ambition was to create a collection of tiles, countertops and sinks, combining ancient traditional handicraft with modern techniques. Revealing a sure sense of beauty and style.
And seriously, how fun are the hand-painted letters?!
The Candana crew: Aaron, Alison, Jennifer and Kaety
The 21st of October at 6.30pm the Candana crew made their way down to the beautiful Andrew 'Boy' Charlton Pool for a presentation by Nicole Roesler of Kaldewei Germany.
We were greeted by the lovely Bathe team and enjoyed champagne and delicious canapes while chatting with Sydney's premium architects and designers.

Nicole presented a great insight into the direction the iconic steel bath company is heading. A quick history of the bathing experience reminded us that the bath has been an important part of our history since the beginning of time.
Kaldewei are re-introducing a luxurious bathing experience and are presenting the bathroom as a sanctuary and place of relaxation, rather than a wash-room to be used quickly.
For many years the kitchen has been the heart of the home, and no we aren't suggesting you entertain while soaking in the tub but the bathroom should be the most important room of a home. It's where you can relax after a long hard day, wash away your troubles under a steaming hot shower and appreciate life in a relaxed atmosphere.
