IDEAS AND DESIGN
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!
