Luke Fry squeezes extension behind bungalow in Melbourne 19 April 2022
Co-working venture Patch offers "an exciting alternative to your kitchen table" says Paloma Strelitz 19 April 2022
Of the three rental flats in Bath, England from designer and property developer Tina Liu, the newest flat, called The Aspiring Cook, is a historic Georgian terrace house restored with 18th century English cookery writer Hannah Glasse as design inspiration. The small ground-level flat is designed with a central kitchen/living/dining space done in bright ochre walls and traditional-meets-meets furnishing. To recreate the look we’ve outlined a list of similar sources from furniture to tableware and more.
