The Design Files Open House Sydney 2013 | DESIGN IS YAY!

Last week I had a chance to go to Sydney. Lucky me, it was the first day of The Design Files Open House, so I decided to go and visit. The Open House was located in a residential area in Surry Hills. The house was absolutely as amazing as I expected. I’m a huge fan of Lucy Feagins, the creator of The Design Files. Everything she touches turn into a colourful wonderland full of beautiful things (which I think is better than gold!)

So here are some of the photos I took at The Design Files Open House Sydney 2013

TDF Open House is an annual event hosted by Lucy Feagins from The Design Files blog. After two successful events in Melbourne in 2011 and 2012, they return this year with a new venue in Sydney.
They have a range of suppliers and sponsors including Country Road, Dulux, Beci Orpin, Blakebrough + King, Bonnie & Neil, Inky & Co, Penguin Books and many many more.

I think it is definitely worth a visit if you’re an interior design fan.

 

Hotel Scandic Grand Central Stockholm featured on Design is Yay!

I came across Hotel Scandic Grand Central images in Bloesem Blog a while back. Loving the retro rooms, and those tiles in the dining room.

I’ve been researching a lot about hotels lately, mainly because my dad is turning our house, the home I grew up in, into a small accommodation establishment. My dad has always been known to have quite a unique taste when it comes to houses and home decor. He combines Minimalist design with Javanese and Chinese art/pattern/antiques. After all, he used to study Architecture major in the 70s. So building houses and home-decorating has always been his passion. I’m hoping to get a few shots of the hotel update while I’m in Indonesia.

Hotel Triton San Francisco featured on Design is Yay!

Love the colours in this room at Hotel Triton, San Francisco. The room reminds me of scenes in Mad Men. I can totally picture Betty Draper (or Betty “Francis” as we know her now, which I’m not very happy about) smoking on that chair, wearing 50s Bell Dress.

Nicole Hollis, the interior designer, incorporate Asian elements (can be seen with the dragon stencils) and classic Edwardian finishes.
