WEL­COME TO THE DARK SIDE

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - EDITOR’S NOTE - EM­ME­LYN CINDY MAH ED­I­TOR

I’ll come right out and say it: I love a dark space. And I don’t nec­es­sar­ily mean a space de­void of sun­light – I mean a space decked out in sleek and modern hues, darker shades that speak of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and adult­hood. Think stained rose­wood coun­ter­tops and dark-painted walls, high-qual­ity cab­i­netry and ex­quis­ite crafts­man­ship – classy, el­e­gant, and ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful.

All this plays won­der­fully into the new ‘last word’ where de­sign is con­cerned. Dark kitchens are the new dar­lings of in­te­rior de­sign, and why shouldn’t they be? From sleek fix­tures to the beau­ti­ful com­bi­na­tion of darker shades and steel, dark kitchens are where it’s at. Check out the style on page 40, and fol­low it up with fix­tures and ap­pli­ances on page 48. Also turn to page 56 to read up on 10 con­sid­er­a­tions you ab­so­lutely need if you’re about to re­fur­bish your kitchen!

While we’re in the kitchen, al­low me to share with you five of my ab­so­lutely favourite recipes for one-pot pas­tas, the per­fect balm for days you just need to hit the kitchen run­ning. With a lit­tle bit of prep­work and just a few ba­sic in­gre­di­ents, you’ll be hav­ing din­ner on the ta­ble in eight to ten min­utes flat! Turn to page 90 to learn how!

As al­ways, we have a selec­tion of gor­geous homes with which to mo­ti­vate your next home dec­o­rat­ing and ren­o­vat­ing en­deav­our. We hope you’ll en­joy them, and take in­spi­ra­tion from them!

Have a great March, and to all my ladies out there – Happy In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day!
