TRACKERS SAFARI LODGE: NOW THAT’S HOW YOU USE WOOD!

Read More

For the last couple of days you’ve been going down memory lane with me during my journey across the pearl of Africa (see part 1, part 2 and part 3). As promised here’s what I found to be the most impressive of all the lodges I saw. Let the record show that the interior decor is quite lacking, so don’t judge my taste there, but the architecture and design of the place is simply breathtaking.

So, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, presenting the lodge that proves that wood is indeed mother nature’s greatest gift to architecture.

SMART HOMES: ARE YOU SMARTER THAN YOUR HOME?

Read More

Close your eyes. Okay, maybe that’s not too wise seeing that you’re reading this. So, with your eyes open, imagine you’ve had a long day at work. You’ve had meetings all day, you haven’t eaten a thing since the piece of toast you had for breakfast and your last meeting ran longer than expected so you’re heading home three hours late. Now imagine getting into the house exhausted and hungry and the door opens up, the lights and air conditioning go on, your favourite song softly plays in the background, all automatically. It may sound far-fetched, but the Kenyan home of the future will be fitted with devices that will make it ‘intelligent’.

Hold up, did I just say future? Sorry, I meant the Kenyan home of today.

MANZIL SWEET MANZIL: MANZIL DECOR AND DESIGN

Read More

By show of hands how many of you are like me and love attending interiors expos. It goes without saying that they are definitely the best way to discover new businesses and products in the market. Speaking of expos, last week I attended the 8th Ideal interiors expo held at Two Rivers Mall Nairobi. After spending close to three hours marveling at anything and everything interiors I was completely drained and irritated. Don’t get me wrong I loved it but after three hours on my feet networking on an empty stomach, I had reached the point where if I saw one more vase I would shatter it into a million pieces and eat each one with some ketchup.

So there I am walking out of the hall when off the corner of my eyes I see what looked like a mirage, the MANZIL DECOR AND DESIGN stand. Manzil is an interior design firm that believes in bringing together comfort & functionality while creating a classy and timeless look in residential and commercial spaces. If their stand was anything to go by they were successfully doing so.

On the last episode of ‘the interior decorator’ we had a look at WABI SABI: THE TALE OF IMPERFECTION. In it a kinky haired girl/woman/lady revealed her love for imperfection in spaces. If you haven’t read the post yet then you’re not getting any spoilers here, just click onto the link and it will all be revealed to you.

Okay, enough about the past and onto the present. Today’s post is a restaurant inspiration post inspired by the WABI SABI style. After reading my last post one of my friend’s had the audacity to tell me that this is not a trend that Kenyans could appreciate. Well my friend (you know yourself!) this post shall prove you oh so wrong.

Presenting my favourite restaurant of all time.
