Rob Mills is no stranger to opulent, visually rich interiors. Pretty fitting then that his own family home in Armadale in Melbourne is a likely contender for his studio’s most magnificent, artistic, and opulent to date. That gleaming, honey-coloured brass, though. For Yellowtrace.
Back in 1999, Alex Calderwood opened the Ace Hotel in Seattle and forever changed our notion of what a luxury hotel could be. Another recent addition to the category is Hi-Lo Hotel in Portland, which promises a comparable sort of cool, relaxed version of luxury. For Yellowtrace.
Rennes isn’t really known for its contemporary architecture. I lived in Brittany’s capital city for a short 12 months, and while the sprawling Saturday produce markets (Marché des Lices) are surrounded by charming 15th century timber frame apartments that all lean a little precariously; and there are grand and romantic 18th century civil buildings, the city’s charm as I know it to be is all cheese and wine, cider and cobblestones.
