For the next instalment in this ongoing Double Tap series, the H&G team dug deep in their saved archives to share designs, people and interior pieces that inspire them. With so much design inspiration and limited characters, here are our favourite posts of the week. We hope it inspires you too and don’t forget to follow our Instagram account.

Beautiful wooden city

“A new era in sustainable architecture will soon begin in Stockholm with the development of the biggest 'wooden city' in the world. The project will cover 25 blocks and is expected to start in 2025, with the first houses completed by 2027.” - Andrea Kuhn, Art Director

Have a seat

“From the first moment I saw these hand-crafted dining chairs, I was obsessed! They're so rustic, but also whimsical at the same time. I can just picture them in a little countryside cottage somewhere in the Cotswolds." - Walter Hayward, Managing & Syndication Editor

Academic hideaway

"I love the eclectic atmosphere within this bedroom. The room has a very winter-like aesthetic with the space exuding warmth. I can picture myself spending many hours herein, writing the various chapters of my second dissertation - hopefully a third cum laude before I immerse myself fully in my next adventure, that auspicious PhD." - Kauthar Gool, Digital Editor

The art of self-care

"If you're anything like me, you take the rituals of self-care very seriously. As such, the space upon which one performs said rituals is, without a doubt, hallowed and precious. That's why I am obsessed with this multi-tasking vanity by Kino, simply called 'The Kino Vanity'. Beautiful, simple, and yet quite striking, it's a must-have as I brave the next few months of winter." - Edwain Steenkamp, Decor and Features Editor

Islamic design beauty

"Dubai is definitely in a league of its own - constantly pushing the boundaries, especially with architectural work and technology. Here, they've made it work together! 3D printing a mosque? Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought it to be possible. It's truly amazing what can be achieved when you put technological advancements to good use." - Taahirah Luddy, Junior Graphic Designer

Feline luxury

“If you know me, you know my cat is my everything. And just like me, deserves beautiful things. I am in love with this luxury design art decor bed that is styled with a geometric exterior and is a rich green - perfect to go with my indoor jungle-coloured aesthetic.” - Vine Lucas, Digital Campaign Manager
