5 hot new items for your kitchen

I will openly admit that I have an addiction to homewares. I love them. I keep the obsession under control most of  the time – and this ‘virtual sourcing’ for Designer Man Cave has been a great little outlet. I get the fun of finding the latest and greatest objects, without it impacting my already overloaded cupboards! I also love to share great things with others – I hunt and gather and then present the top finds to you, to save you doing the hunting yourself.

I often find that men’s kitchens can sometimes be a little light on the decorative/style front. Yes, its a practical space, but that shouldn’t hold you back from injecting a little bit of cool. Here are some of my favourite kitchen additions on the market at the moment….

Airtasker assembles your furniture so you can do better things with your time

If you live in Sydney (on the east coast of Australia) and want to outsource the putting together of your new furniture, look no further. The company Airtasker has crossed my path and is something worth sharing with you! The online network connects people who need help (with home, garden, deliveries, handymen, IT….) with people who specialise in those tasks. It’s a win win for everyone involved. I’m all for outsourcing, whether it be something I can’t do, don’t have time to do, or even don’t want to do. And as our schedules get more full by the week, it makes sense to take the load off a little doesn’t it? Wouldn’t you rather spend your precious time after work relaxing or cooking dinner, than putting together your latest Ikea purchase?

Jaguar XE and 10 ultimate garages

The latest Jaguar XE has the latest innovation, technology and design. It is a new generation of car and when I heard it has new Advanced Aluminium Architecture, I was immediately intrigued. Anytime beautiful design, construction and efficiency are combined, I take a moment to take a good look. And if it’s good, I share it with you!

Inspired by luxury cars, it got me thinking about where they are kept. It’s great to have a luxury toy, but it’s even better when it’s parked somewhere of equal prestige. So I hit the ground/Google running and came up with 10 of my favourite aspirational garages that I think you gents might like….
