Whether it be an exhibition, restaurant, travelling or fashion, we find constantly exploring helps us with our creativeness and keeping up to date with current trends. Below are a few discoveries we have made this month and would love to share with you.

Trend – Sabrina Savage

Discovery

Sabrina Savage is a British designer. Her intricate, hand drawn illustrations are printed on to gorgeous silk scarfs and have been featured in several high fashion magazines such as Vogue and Country & Townhouse. Her designs are bursting with botanical and zoological illustrations and are at the top of our most wanted list – not that we need any more retail therapy so close after Christmas!

Book – A Prisoner of Geography by Tim Marshall

Discovery

Tim Marshall has been a reporter on foreign affairs for almost 30 years and is the author of the New York Times best seller Prisoners of Geography.
Prisoners of Geography is definitely worth a read – it is very well written and explains some basic facts about how natural geographical constraints have shaped relationships between countries.

Travel – Cyprus

DiscoveryDiscoveryDiscovery

Polis, a small town in Cyprus, is abundant with historical buildings and ruins. Modest stone buildings dating back 500 years all with a heavy catholic influence and amazing tiny details. A prime example this handmade brass hand door handle created around the 17th century, a fine example of Mediterranean style and biblical influence.

In a stunning location on the coast, Polis certainly worth adding to your bucket list!
