Fierce design and illustration for the fearless. That's the philosophy behind each artwork from New Zealand illustrator Evie Kemp.

Unafraid of creating pieces with strong personality, Evie combines bold line, colours and arresting motifs to produce her intense art prints. Not interested in making something to fit the cookie cutter show home, Evie wants all her pieces to pack a punch - like a visual slap in the face to awaken the senses and give a space it's own personality.

And I think it's safe to say she's hit the nail on the head with this amazing bird series.

If only all family portraits looked like this! 

This is the Steele family. Taylor Steele - prolific surf creative and director, Sybil Steele - photographer & stylist, and their two daughters Jaiden and Milla. Add the creative eye and concept of Sheree Commerford of Captain and the Gypsy Kid and you've captured the essence of one hell of a good-looking, creative and free-spirited, Australian family.

As with each of the hotels in the 25hours Hotel Company, the 'urban jungle' design concept behind newest kid on the block the Bikini Berlin has been inspired by the hotels location sitting pretty between Tiergarten Park and the Berlin Zoo on one side and the bustling city west district on the other.

The 149 room hotel is a playful re-development for the historic 1950's post-war modernist building by Werner Aisslinger, preserving the original architecture wherever possible including the exposed concrete surfaces juxtaposed against the abundant addition of green life.

With plenty of room for both work and play, you can either escape the cosmopolitan capital within the the loft-like communal spaces, or you can take it all in with 360 degree views of the city (including the animal enclosures of the zoo) from Monkey Bar and restaurant NENI Berlin set amongst the greenhouse on the 10th floor.

My local gallery, The Trevor Victor Gallery, has been hosting an exhibition of Australian artist David Bromley for the past few weeks, and as I drive by each day I fall more and more in love with his nude portrait series.

I first came across Australia's version of Andy Warhol when I spotted one of his nude's in the home of Brisbane interior designer Anna Spiro and since then his bold statement pieces have been a common sighting amongst the pages of interior design magazines.
