Designed to look like a massive block of stone, the “Café au lait” kitchen by Milvia Hannah is the centrepiece of the family living area in a new home in Canterbury.

A large stone island forms the striking centrepiece of this kitchen in a Canterbury home – it’s coffee-coloured veining giving rise to the name of the project.

“Café au lait”, by Wellington kitchen designer Milvia Hannah of German Kitchens, reflects the owners’ designer for an “organic” kitchen featuring natural materials and colours.

The kitchen, which won a regional award in this year’s national NKBA Kitchen & Bathroom Awards, has also been shortlisted for the prestigious SBID International Design Excellence Awards in London – the winners will be announced later this month.

Milvia Hannah of German Kitchens has won numerous design awards.

Elephant’s Continually-updating Coronavirus Diary. ~ Waylon

~

I’ve been seeing a lot of newsletters, articles, and texts from friends talking about taking advantage of all the free time at home that we all have as a result of the pandemic.

The general consensus seems to be that since we are all at home 24/7 now, why not learn a new language, gain a new skill, or just become more self-actualized, fit versions of ourselves?

It seems like I’ve received 60-plus emails from healers, teachers, and authors, all encouraging me to join in meditations and classes. And while I appreciate their efforts and insights, I feel like we are missing a beat here.

We as a society just went from 0 to 60, or rather—in this case—from 60 to 0 in the span of about a week. The public attitude seemed to go from “the virus won’t affect us, we will

6 Peel-and-Stick Wallpaper Patterns for Your Latest DIY Decor Project

Posted on

As the new coronavirus spreads, I’m even more grateful than usual for my home, where I’m now spending basically all of my time. But studio life isn’t without challenges—doing everything in one room is hard. My peel-and-stick wallpaper habit is really a godsend right now.

I spent months deliberating over and applying (then reapplying) wallpaper until I found something that stuck in more ways than one. And now, in light of the newfound quality time I’m spending at home, those design choices have helped keep me sane. The moody floral mural behind my canopy bed makes it feel like I actually have a bedroom, even though I don’t have any walls designating one. The black-and-gold bee pattern near my TV complements my couch and sends a message to my brain that maybe, just maybe, I have an open living room and kitchen space. My point? Peel-and-stick wallpaper helps control the
