editor’s LETTER

D

ear readers, this is your captain speaking, Angela Gotborn, Editor in Chief. Hope you all are comfortably and that you are ready for some inspiration! Plump up the cushion behind your back, pour yourself a cup of tea, polish your glasses, here we go! Shortly after take-off, we visit a company that made the old rag rug trendy. Old technology in a new design! Then we immediately are thrown into a world full of playful patterns in bright pastels. I see a new star in the design world; check out Sophie Webster’s playful design! We continue with theme colours, where there is one colour shining a bit brighter, I’m talking about Tiffany’s blue colour. Want to learn more about its history, I recommend you to slow down the pace and stay a while on this section. Did I hear someone say shopping? A new dress or a pair of ruby sprinkled snakes to adorn your ears with. A spotty chair, a new bag to hang on the arm, or maybe a different wallpaper with blue and white porcelain. There are lots of great shopping tips! Phew, shopping can you wear you out, time to slow down. We visit Biscuteers. It’s cookie-art at the highest level, as sweet as it can be. The only limit is your imagination. If you want to eat a shoe, it’s as good as taking a bite of the Eiffel Tower. Brush off the crumbs and prepare yourselves for some crafts. It’s time for some work of art; small squares of paper, a linked bracelet with pearls, gold rondelles and tiny sapphires. I say let’s create! For those who are not keen on crafts, there are of course more shopping tips; beautiful lamps, pens, notebooks and a few golden pineapples. u

Now I think that all of you will agree with me that we could use a much needed break before continuing our journey. We all need time to recover, time to reflect, time to relax, it’s time for bath! We visit a Nordic bath and one Turkish bath. Would you rather do a home spa, then you must not miss our pages with selected products for the bath. Now that we have rested, we can continue our journey. Is it just me starting to feel hungry? How about some exquisite meals at the fabulous department store Fortnum & Mason in London? Would you prefer to cook your own meal, I can highly recommend one of our salads. By the way, if you want to stay a while here in London, maybe renting a super stylish apartment is the thing for you; we visit one in Chelsea, West London. Would you prefer to travel further, perhaps to New York, you should peek into two iconic design suites, Dior suite and Tiffany suite at St. Regis hotel. Enjoy and get inspired! Welcome to the new and improved Fine Decor Magazine! Angela Gotborn Editor in chief u

NOTE design

Traditional rag rugs are an interior decorating detail that has been a part of Swedish homes since the end of the 1700s. Because textiles were very exclusive and expensive, the owners only hung them on a wall for festivities. It wasn’t until the 1900s that rugs found their way into the average Swedish home and were placed on the floor.

Thinking outside the rug

The company combines the modern colours and models with the tradition of making rag-rugs. Since the rugs are designed with a moderns touch and created from scratch by hand, the rugs are both practical and long-lasting yet at the same time beautiful as a piece of art. The products are carefully produced while using the highest quality in materials and are hand-woven; you could almost see the quality in the final product. A rug like this will last a life time, both when it comes to actual usage and as well as an interior decorating detail. u

How to make old fashioned hand-woven rugs trendy?

text FREDRIK GOTBORN, layout ANGELA GOTBORN

The Swedish company Vandra Rugs combine old handicraft with modern design. The rugs are hand-woven and only the highest natural materials cotton and linen are to be used. Vandra rugs is a weaving studio that master the whole process from the initial design idea, dyeing the fabric strips to the actual craftsmanship of weaving the rugs.

INTERVIEW

“I love the simple beauty of a good photo, capturing a look and experimenting with different technics.”

But I think there has never been a photographer that encompasses both those worlds quite beautifully as Richard Avedon with his great fashion work and his ability to capture the true human spirit like the portraits from ‘In the American West’. Tell us more about your projects, and about your client base? When I do a photojournalistic project I chose subjects that are somewhat controversial and try juxtapose wealth versus poverty like in my multimedia project called 'Tax Deductible'. Another example would be the abuse of power over the weaker who have little or no voice like another multimedia project I recently did called 'A New Year in Hillbrow'. I am currently working on a new project in Palestine but for that you will have to wait ;) For my commercial work at this stage it's word of mouth, networking and getting exposure which gives me the opportunities I have been given that make it possible for me to enjoy both worlds of photography.

INTERVIEW

SWEETS AND

PASTRY CHEFS

I HAVE FOLLOWED YOU FOR A WHILE ON YOUR BLOG AND KNOW HOW TALANTED YOU ARE IN BAKING, NOT JUST CAKES BUT ANY OTHER POSSIBLE SWEETS. WHEN DID YOU START BAKING CAKES? I actually started when I released the blog in summer 2009. I’ve never had anything passion for baking before. But I have always loved to eat pastries! I’m very fond of cakes and tarts and I always choose that in front of sweets. DO YOU HAVE ANY EDUCATION? I have not had any training, but I tried to get into a pastry chef school in Kristianstad, Sweden, for a couple of years ago but did not go in because I haven’t got the basic education. After that rather disappointing notification, I decided to apply for an education in Malmö, but did not get in because I had too good high school grades (!). It took to much energy so I decided to just ignore that and instead go my own way. TELL US WHAT THE BOOK IS ALL ABOUT? My book “Lomelinos cakes” contains extra high, extra luxurious, fabulous cakes! It is like a cake handbook if you will, with a really good manual at the beginning where I go through everything from baking trays to how to cover the cake with butter cream. Each recipe is very carefully written and you should be able to follow it whether you are a beginner or not. In the book, one can find cream cakes, frozen cakes, tarts with berries, cakes, chocolate, etc.

Well, with a little determination, I believe that almost anyone can do it! My cakes have very different levels of difficulty, but in general, I think most of the recipes are easier than you might think! But yes, first time I made a cake, I thought it was hard! Practice makes perfect as they say. However, I think that the recipes in my book are very simple to follow! FROM WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION? Newspapers, blogs, books, etc. I think that the Swedish spring and summer time is incredibly inspiring! When I get inspired, I often get an urge to bake cakes. ’WHAT’S THE MAIN TOOL OR INSTRUMENT IN THE KITCHEN TO SUCCEED BAKING A CAKE, EXCEPT THE BOWL, TOOL FOR MEASURING AND A WHISK? A good bread pan! Preferably a pan that is half a feet in diameter and with a high edge. Other than that, I recommend getting an angled palette knife / spatula which is really good to have when doing the filling or the cover of the cake. HOW OFTEN DO YOU BAKE? It varies a lot! Some weeks I bake three times, some weeks not at all. It all depends on how much else I have to do! I have a “regular” job as well so then it becomes not so much time to bake.

DO YOU ALWAYS SERVE HOME COOKED PASTERY WHEN DRINKING COFFEE? I do not invite to a “fika”, as we say in Sweden, that often. I prefer to go home to friends and bring something delicious with me! After I have baked and taken photos it is always chaos at my place and then you do not feel to CAN ANYONE BAKE YOUR DELISIOUS CAKES, invite people in for a coffee. när jag väl bjuder så är det IS IT DIFFICULT?

INTERVIEW

decorations are made by hand as well as the process to get the correct colour. Artificial colours are never used, emphasizes Christina; if you want a pink looking dessert, then we use strawberries for instance. Linda also tells us that they mix a lot of flavours, combinations, both expected and unexpected, to get that little extra. Salt is, for example, an ingredient that is used much. The shop as we sit in opened up for business in January this year and has been well-received. The overall concept is important, both interior and the boxes that we distribute our pastries in, goes in the same style as the pastries. At the shop you can stop by to buy one or two pastry on the go or to make a larger order. In the future they might start a small café so that one can sit down and enjoying the pastries in the shop along with a cup of tea or coffee. The shop and the interior, as mentioned earlier, are really as sweet as pastry itself. Soon we have emptied all the trays and lunch seems now less important. We sit back and think that we need to revisit them again, soon. A nicer and sweeter interruption to the ordinary workday is hard to find. Thank you, Linda and Christina, for this inspiring interview and for all the lavish pastries. Good luck with your enterprise and with all your pastries, we’ll be back soon for more! ◆

INTERVIEW and I am now represented for the past year by a photo agent who secures me great advertising and editorial work. I think getting in with a good agent is a key to growing as a photographer as they can provide you with more challenging jobs and high paying clients and in turn the work is exciting and you learn so much as you go. Do you have a favourite project that you've done, or any work that you are particularly pleased with? I am very pleased with my own book which I completed from start to finish completely by myself. I wrote the recipes, cooked them, styled them, then photographed and designed the book myself. Do you shoot other things like; interior, people, travel, etc.? Yes apart from food, which I commissioned 70% of my time to shoot, I also love to shoot lifestyle subjects and some interiors when the opportunity arises. My eye for details gained through my years in design is very useful when shooting interiors as I notice all the little details and features which are gathered to make a home interesting, personal and unique. I love shooting interiors of restaurants and cafés and behind the scenes reportage-style shoots in busy professional kitchens as I love capturing the madness of what goes on in such environments and showing to viewers.

wider audience. Initially I had no interest, but then when he suggested the name 'What Katie Ate' I was sold. I used the blog as an online portfolio to showcase my progression into food styling and food photography. The blog is a showcase of the sort of food and photography styles I like to shoot. It contains recipes written by myself and accompanying photos. There are also travel pics and features I have shot for various magazines around Australia. I don't really do restaurant reviews as I am not a food critic or do I ever take photos of food in restaurants (it's not my thing). I feature recipes I might make and eat during the week and sometimes cook, style and shoot much larger themed stories if I have the time to do so. A redesigned ‘What Katie ate’ will be launching at the start of November 2012. It is much easier to navigate than the current one and has many more features and sections, all of which I hope the current and new readers will find useful and enjoyable to read and use.

You have a wonderful and inspiring blog, tell me more, what made you start it, and please tell us about its content? Three years ago when I decided to change careers from one in graphic design to that of photography, I did a refresher photography course at Swinburne Art College in Melbourne, it was there upon seeing my work, my tutor, suggested I start a blog as he said it was a great method of getting my work out there to a

Where do you get your inspiration from? Australian food magazines and international cookbooks around me; music and art; the amazing weather and lifestyle here in Sydney; people who inspire me are the likes of photographers: Ditte Isager, Martyn Thompson, Con Poulos, Alan Benson, Mikkel Vang, David Loftus; artists such as: Tim Burton, Stanley Donwood and musicians like: Radiohead, Noel Gallagher, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin. Do you have a mentor, a photographer, stylist that inspires you? I am hugely fond of Ditte Isager's work and also Sydney-based food and lifestyle photographer; Alan Benson. Stylists who inspire me are David Morgan and Steve Pearce. There is a plethora of amazingly talented stylists FINE DECOR MAGAZINE

hen did you start working full time as a jewellery designer and have you attended any training or are you self-taught? I am self-taught. I first began designing pieces for my private clients while I was working as a curator of fine jewellery collections. That was probably ten years ago. When it comes to my line, I allow the material guide me. Every stone has its own energy and if you refrain from looking at them with any predetermined intention, the stones end up determining the design.

What is style for you and how would you describe your own style? Talking about style, to me fashion style is how you express yourself through your clothes. My style is eclectic-it is feminine with a touch of a strong side, elegant with a modern twist, classic and chic yet edgy and bold. My style expresses my attitude, my mood of the day. It’s always with a pair of fabulous shoes. I like to add an interesting element into my outfits.

“I’m a family type person and love to spend time with my family and loved ones. In fact, I enjoy cooking and host family dinner parties every Saturday night. Besides all that, I love travelling, as you see my blog’s name is Life In Travel, and of course travelling in style. I also love to explore different cultures, customs, and different cuisines”

Some people claim that fashion and loving everything about it is very shallow, how do you keep your feet on the ground when you live and breathe fashion and consume it? Does it ever impact you negatively to love fashion and style to the extent that you do? I love culture. To me, fashion is an adventure of expression of who you are, and what you wear shows its influence. It’s about good energy, and feeling. I also love art, so fashion is an extension of art, actually it’s a living art. But I believe life should have a balance, and try to remain grounded.

Meet the jewellery designer that is inspired by natures shape and form, and creates jewellery by recycling gold, wood, precious stones and diamonds.

I know that you are inspired by nature and its forms. Tell me what happens when you design a new piece of jewellery. Do you let the stone's shape control you or are you looking for the right shape? Please tell us about idea, sketch to finished jewellery, how does the process work? I do not sit down and say "today I must design some rings". It doesn't work for me that way. I don't have collections in the traditional sense. I work with stones that I love and that inspire me. I prefer to keep materials as close to their natural condition as possible. That doesn't mean I don't use cut stones, it’s just my preference to maintain as much of nature's original condition as I can. It is actually a very organic process. How often will you release new jewellery? We have new pieces weekly. Do you work with different collections? We don’t have traditional collections. I view the line via categories and stone types.

FINE JEWELLERY Can you as a customer orders a unique piece of jewellery? We do create custom pieces all the time. It allows the client to be sure that what she or he is getting will work with their lifestyle, wardrobe, etc.

I really enjoy your jewellery. Your way to combine colour and shape of the gemstones is exquisite. Do you have any favourite gemstone? I have three stones which standout as a source of inspiration: Agates – they are a symbol of protection and I use to collect them as a child so they bring about wonderful memories.

We really enjoy all of your jewellery, and think that your bracelet is quite extra ordinary. Do you have any jewellery that sells more than anything else? We have a great balance between the fun every day pieces and the specialty pieces...and are fortunate enough to have clients that love and purchase all types of KMD jewellery. I would say though that our earrings are our strong point. Thank you very much Kimberly! ◆

Geodes – like snowflakes each has a different personality and design. Opals – when you think about what it takes nature to create an opal – that along is inspiring. A magnificent feat of nature to make a silica-based stone that needs water, in some of the driest most arid terrain.

www.kimberlymcdonald.com

What precious metals do you work with primarily? My collection uses almost exclusively recycled 18 k gold. Tell us about your typical customer, who is wearing Kimberly McDonald? Like each piece, there is no typical customer! Clients who gravitate to my line tend to be sophisticated in their luxury palette. They typically appreciate nature, have their own unique style, and do not want what everyone else has. They range in age from teens and early 20s (with starter pieces like our baby pendants and macramé bracelets) and go up through all rages. In fact Mrs. B of Browns is one of our top collectors! Who would you like to see wearing your jewellery? I've quite enjoyed working with the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. My ideal client is that person who has a deep appreciation for nature, design and the stones themselves.

Tiffany diamond rings with custom platinum mountings (from left): emerald cut, square step-cut, cushion modified brilliant diamond. Price available upon request

The legendary company Tiffany & Co. founded in 1837 by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young in New York, first started off selling stationary items and operated in Lower Manhattan. It was after Charles Lewis took over the control in 1853 that the focus on high jewellery was established. Tiffany & Co. is famous for their blue-turquoise colour and it was actually back in 1845 it all started. The colour famously known as Tiffany Blue® was selected early in the company’s history to grace the cover of the Blue Book, first published in 1845

Charles Lewis Tiffany

Tiffany & Co. was ahead of their time when they launched the mail order catalogue called the “Blue Book” in 1845. It was the first mail order catalogue to be distributed in U.S. The idea of the book was to showcase Tiffany & Co. annual collection of exclusively handcrafted jewellery. When Charles Lewis Tiffany designed the cover of the first book 1845 he chose the popular colour turquoise gemstone for the front cover. The colour of the front cover of this catalogue becomes the starting point for the iconic blue colour that Tiffany & Co. ever since is associated with.

The Blue Book is still published today and serves as a detailed chronology of Tiffany design evolution and play an important role in the history of American design. The Blue Book has throughout the years become a fashion tell-tale for each period in time. The early Blue Books showcased lavish diamonds, including French and Spanish crown jewels reset in exquisite Tiffany settings to the platinum age of diamonds in the 1920’s, Cocktail-Style jewellery in the 1940’s and 1950’s, up to present age modern and stylish design. The book was after its release instantly referred to as just The Blue Book and soon the special blue colour the Charles Lewis Tiffany chose was showing up everywhere at Tiffany & Co. like in promotional materials, gift boxes, advertisements and shopping bags.

The colour known as Tiffany Blue also referred to as robin’s-egg blue or forget-me-not blue, this distinctive colour may have been chosen because of the popularity of the turquoise gemstone in 19th-century jewellery. Turquoise was also a favourite of Victorian brides who gave their attendants a dove-shaped brooch of turquoise as a wedding day memento. Tiffany Blue Box

The same Tiffany blue is still used as colour for all the gift boxes, along with a big white ribbon wrapped around it that comes when purchasing items from Tiffany & Co. The blue box from Tiffany is probably one of the worlds most famous and iconic gift boxes. Women of all kind all over the world now knows that when a small box like this with a white ribbon arrives, something precious, and soon to be adored, is about to be delivered. u

Cashmere Luxurious cashmere - cool in summer and warm in winter Cashmere is very soft wool that comes from the Cashmere goat. The goats live on the high plains of the Gobi desert. There are very few goats left in the area of India called Cashmere. Cashmere is one of the wonders of nature.

WOOL & CASHMERE GIFT BAG, The Laundress, price $52.00 WWW.THELAUNDRESS.COM

The nature has due to a hard and challenging climate created something completely unique. Cashmere has a unique fibre characteristic that makes it both insulates in winter and makes it cool in summer. It takes two to four years for a goat to produce so much wool for a sweater. Cashmere comes naturally in white, grey or brown but can also be dyed in various colours. Almost all the cashmere-sweaters burl in the beginning. It is because when the wool is spun into yarn and due to different length of the fibres the shortest fibres tend to crawl out on the surface after knitting and usage. The burling usually tends to go away after a few washes.
