IDEAS AND DE­SIGN

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Editor's Note -

We’re near­ing the end of 2013. This year has seen a lot of ac­tiv­ity for the

Home & Decor team. The ex­cit­ing new ideas in this year’s iSaloni Del Mo­bile in Mi­lan in April, which we show­cased in our July, Au­gust and Septem­ber is­sues, have in­spired all of us. We also launched our in­au­gu­ral Malaysian Icon De­sign com­pe­ti­tion, the re­sults of which was show­cased in a beau­ti­ful spread in our Septem­ber is­sue, and you will see the win­ner in th­ese very pages.

Month af­ter month, we present homes that are well de­signed, metic­u­lously planned and chock full of ideas when you plan your own haven. This is­sue, as al­ways, we have over 40 pages of great homes that are sure to wow.

Our kitchen spe­cial gives you the lat­est gad­gets and trends out there to make the space truly the heart of your home. We reach fur­ther ashore to Ho Chi Minh City, Viet­nam, to the hip and hap­pen­ing de­sign places there.

On the lo­cal front, we speak to Oi­wah Tham, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of In­te­ri­ors In­ter­na­tional, who has de­signed pres­ti­gious projects such as the An­daman Se­ries in Seri Tan­jung Pi­nang, Pe­nang, St Mary Res­i­dences, Kuala Lumpur, E & O Res­i­dences, Kuala Lumpur, Dua Res­i­dency, Kuala Lumpur and more. Read her in­ter­view on page 46.

The team is also busy work­ing on the De­cem­ber is­sue, where we’ll have a Christ­mas gift guide and round up the best of the best of 2013. There’ll be a spe­cial treat for our read­ers, the in­au­gu­ral Malaysia De­signer Show­case, a mag­a­zine bun­dled to­gether with our De­cem­ber is­sue. In it, we show the works of the top in­te­rior de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects in the coun­try. Watch out for it!
