Green For Good – How We Do It At KD

We try as much as possible to be a green company and maintain an eco-friendly office environment.  On a small scale, we have our milk delivered to the office in glass bottles, use reusable milk bottle tops by MOOPOPS (which come in a great selection of shades!) and use Tea Pigs as our preferred tea […]

Caring for Wooden Worktops

We’ve recently installed a beautiful hardwood island for a client. Woods in kitchens look stunning and are lovely to work on, but do require quite a bit of maintenance. This client was hesitant about having such a volatile material in the kitchen, which is why we’ve limited it to a small wooden island, which stands […]

Sustainable home is Costa Rica

Sometimes the positioning of a home makes it very difficult for it not to be spectacular: this home in Costa Rica certainly fits that particular bill: I particularly like how the architect has provided an enormous decking area from which one can view the incredible surroundings; I am also very impressed by the water feature […]

Wish you were here?

On a Friday it is nice to think about being somewhere a little more appealing than the UK in early February.  How about this – a relaxing hotel on the edge of the Sahara Desert.  I love the Design: the how the seating is situated directly by the window allowing the guest to gaze up […]

An unlikely light/plant combo

It is always nice having plants in a room for the main reason that they are ever-changing.  This gives any room an organic feel that is not attainable through furniture alone.  The nice twist in this instance is the combination of plants with a light: I really like this type of quirky Design as it […]
