New season rhymes with new beginnings. This is the silver lining we all want to see in the opening of the Fall Season. In 2020, I won't have the chance - or will I, at some point? - to walk my daughter in her new classroom on her first day of school, and snap the pic that will make an update on my #milyforever story. This year instead, I just plugged her brand new Chromebook in my room, handed over my desk - that little home office of mine for the past few months, best spot in the house, by the window but no direct sunlight, view on the water and palm trees and said «Honey your lunch will be ready at 12.30».

First summer of my new life
I remember what summer used to be like. Lots of fireworks and BBQ in July, flocks of friends coming over from Europe to visit Florida and then be mad about the tropical showers - chill out dude, it's like an hour a day - and the excitement to go on a adventure. Somewhere. And then it's 2020 and we did not get that many fireworks let alone BBQ or flocks of friends. Instead, all of us get a huge amount of work, endless zooms sessions....and new projects. So that's something to be excited about. Download our newsletter here https://bit.ly/2YcvRlR

First of all, we apologize for being so late delivering this Newsletter. At one point we even questioned the relevance of keeping it, for a March 2020 that will soon be one of those dates you never forget. But I insisted, I wanted this newsletter, and I like to think that you do too. So, better late than never. It took us some time because we had to review the content, tweak our messages so we would not be totally inappropriate either, and keep some decency in this world where the new normal is to FaceTime, Zoom and GoogleMeet whoever you would usually text, and get a special gear to go to Trader Joe's. And I am not talking about non-disposable shopping bags. Download our newsletter here https://bit.ly/3aB4Pcd
In Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, off the Persian Gulf, a pharaonic project is taking shape: Qasr Al Watan. Nicknamed the Versailles of the Middle East, this is an extraordinary adventure appearing on the horizon. A symbol of the greatness of the country, the adventure began in 2009 with a design competition. Xavier Cartron threw his hat in the ring. He impressed with his French know-how but above all thanks to his creative approach to the hall, which captivated the jury. The Frenchman, already recognized as an expert on projects in the Middle East, won the adventure. Xavier Cartron has turned this pharaonic project into a new cultural monument, more than just an institution that can host meetings of the United Arab Emirates cabinet or the Supreme Council. Opened in April 2019, this Palace of the Arabian Nights continues to gain in renown.
Maison Sarah Lavoine wishes to support and protect nature by gradually taking on a more sustainable dimension through the choice of its craftsmen, the sourcing of its materials and the way of designing its products so that they last and become timeless.. 80% of this collection is produced in Europe, with the majority of products made in France.
In 2013, Xavier Cartron was chosen by the Government of Equatorial Guinea to renovate a 5-star hotel on African Lands in Bata.
When Xavier Cartron took over the project, the structure was already built and the initial project lacked coherence. The Cartron agency therefore had to redesign the entire building. The concept was to create a reference place in West Africa, reflecting the local identity associated with a standard of luxury hotels that is unprecedented in the region.
Xavier Cartron, passionate about travel and Africa, imagines the architecture and interior design of the project, inspired by the lush and wild nature of Equatorial Guinea, in order to express its primary identity and what will become the leitmotiv of the Hotel: "Born Wild".
The recipient of the 6th Annual American Design Honors is Detroit-based Nina Cho. Born in California and raised in Seoul, Korea, the artist and designer is heavily inspired by her heritage, prompting her to experiment with forms influenced by Eastern philosophy and techniques. A graduate of Hongik University, Seoul and the prestigious Cranbrook Academy of Art, Cho's sedately colorful work spans sculptural blown glass figures, wall mirrors, investigations in planar structures and metals, as well as tables, chairs, and objects.
"Nina's curiosity is born from conflicting worlds, juxtaposed," says Jerry Helling, President and Creative Director of Bernhardt Design. "It is in the negative space between them that she has found her aesthetic. As a part of the creative community in Detroit, a city in constant evolution, Nina brings a new and refreshing perspective to American design."

Did I tell you that in my daughter's class they call Valentine's Day Friendship day? It's when they celebrate their friends, everybody gets a little attention. Isn't that sweet? The French and very cynical part of me wants to ask why would you need a Special Day to celebrate your friends when you could do it everyday? Same with your loved one, by the way. But I get it, when I see her beaming after a party in the classroom, proud to have so many good friends around. download newsletter here https://bit.ly/2HJAcEG
