a peek inside: kelly wearstler’s wardrobe


Kelly Wearstler a interior designer-turned-designer applies the same thoughtfulness to her interiors as she does to her collections. Here we peeked inside her Beverly Hills abode, we were smitten with the sheer size of the home and the attention to detail throughout.  Oh, and she’s got more Manolos than Carrie Bradshaw! Shoes oh shoes, I think there is not enough days in the year to wear them all!

a peek inside: Hedi Gores wardrobe


Crushing hard on this wardrobe and style of Heidi Gores. Who is Heidi Gores, and how does she have so many amazing shoes? She is one of the founders behind Pressed Juicery. Regardless, I love a clean white closet as it is the perfect background for showcasing a beautiful wardrobe.

Retail | OWEN Store NYC | Tacklebox Arhitecture


Project: OWEN Store| Location: Meatpacking District, NY, USA | Architects: Tacklebox arhitecture

Description by Architects : Located in the Meatpacking District, OWEN Store  occupies an 1,800 square foot space that previously housed a meat storage facility, auto storage, and a floral shop.  In response to the rich history of the space and through the juxtaposition of industrial elements with the handmade, we sought to create a place that is both familiar and timeless. Here a continuous surface, hand-built out of 25,000 brown paper bags, arches from floor to ceiling. The repetition of the paper bags results in a honeycomb-like structure that defines a warm, organic volume which sits within the existing industrial brick and concrete space.  Additionally, all clothing, accessories, and jewelry are displayed on quartz slab tables, blackened steel hang-bars and steel and glass vitrine whose linearity and crisp details sit in contrast to the delicate texture of the paper arch beyond. Here at Arhitektura+ we find this idea creative and not to mention, highly affordable. Just don’t know what happens if someone leans on the wall?

Myer, Melbourne


Project: Myer Bourke Street | Location: Melbourne, Australia| Architect: | NH Architecture

Building completion: 2011

The Myer renovations have introduced a golden glow to the retail heart of Melbourne’s CBD.  The Art Deco Bourke Street Mall facade has also been sensitively restored. Windows have been recommissioned to give life to the facade while allowing tempting glimpses of the retail activities within.

The  $225 million redevelopment of one of Melbourne’s most iconic shopping strips has won many awards and now gained recognition on a global scale.

A diamond-shaped skylight directs natural light into the atrium to transform a usually internalized retail environment into airy spaces.
