GRACE MA

Grace picks out Hong Kong as her pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion: “I love how Hong Kong’s tra­di­tions and old­school ways re­main strong de­spite its moder­nity.” She quips: “Noth­ing screams home­com­ing more than a gruff waiter serv­ing tea with a clat­ter on the ta­ble, while shout­ing your order across the cha chan teng.” For this is­sue’s Spa­ces sec­tion, Grace looks into the de­tails that can turn your bath­room into a stylish sanctuary (page 142).

JASPER YU

Jasper cites Reyk­javik in Ice­land as one of the most un­for­get­table cities he has vis­ited. He loves how the cap­i­tal city sparkles with life, while be­ing sur­rounded by nat­u­ral beauty. “Twin­kling stars set the scene at night, with a danc­ing ar­ray of lights,” he muses. Aptly for this is­sue, he pho­tographed a home that cel­e­brates its Nordic in­spi­ra­tion—check out this Scandi-chic abode in the Sanc­tu­ar­ies sec­tion (page 100).

MELISSA TWIGG

Af­ter liv­ing in Paris for five years, Melissa still adores the city—she fondly re­mem­bers cy­cling through Saint Ger­main to her of­fice in the morn­ings. “It must have been one of the most beau­ti­ful com­mutes in the world—six years later, I still miss it,” she shares. In this is­sue, she speaks to Aerin Lauder about her fam­ily’s beauty legacy, and how it in­flu­enced her inim­itable style (page 132).

LYNN TAN

Am­s­ter­dam is Lynn’s favourite city. “Its network of canals and quaint gabled fa­cades gives it a very com­fort­able sense of scale,” she ex­plains. The Dutch city’s vi­brant art and cul­tural scene adds to its charm. Lynn ap­plies that same ad­mi­ra­tion to ar­chi­tec­tural de­tail as she ex­plores the mod­ernist in­flu­ence that shapes the projects of Re­nais­sance Plan­ners & De­sign­ers in the Style sec­tion (page 64).
