Have been catching up on some magazine reading of late. I particularly like the feature on the new 'Zumbo' patisserie in Pyrmont in the latest 'Artichoke'.
Artichoke, Issue 38, February 2011
My favourite element is the custom wallpaper with multi-coloured macaroons as seen on the front cover. The interior is Willy Wonka meets Mousetrap (the board game) and features colour, pattern and whimsy in spades. I'm not really mad about sweets but from a design point of view, I think it should be added to the hit-list for the upcoming Sydney trip to Designex in May!

We had a great time at Temperature Design's 'Ercol' launch the other week. A new favourite of mine is the Ercol 'Butterfly Chair' - available in a very sophisticated range of colours. Rumour has it Kevin McCloud has a custom made set in Navy.
The only problem I have is picking a colour...
I thought the orange was my fave, but that Navy is super chic, and there is the duck egg blue, not to mention the natural timber or the timelessness of white....
