Favorite summer coffee

Let me tell you my latest passion - making my own ice vanilla latte. Lovely and fresh idea, perfect for the summer. I like it so much that just yesterday I drank four big cups and today I already finished my third one and I'm ready for the next as you can see on the pictures. And the recipe is really simple and it is a new, fun way for me to diversify my black coffee drinking routine.
And you need only two ingredients! Are you ready?

A little escape to Southwest France

I wanted to write a design mix post today with the beautiful items that I found pretty recently, but I couldn’t. Not after I saw this amazing place that makes me dream for vacation and France. This is the place where the fashion designer Julia Leach from the brand Chance relaxes, recharges her batteries and gets inspired. Dorodgne (near Bordeaux in Southwest France) is the place where this lovely stone house is located and inside is like a summer dream to me - white, simple but with plenty of old furniture and accessories from the past.  I can totally imagine how recharging everything is there.

City posters - a bit different by studio Esinam

How cool are those posters created by the Swedish design studio Esinam.
In a different and minimalistic form the designers Josefine and Sebastian (art director and architect) are trying to capture the feeling of various popular cities around the world - Berlin, Tokyo and Paris. I’m going for Berlin, but which one you'd choose?

Reportage: Renegade Craft Fair / San Francisco 2014

Hello friends,
How was your weekend? Let me boast about the amazing weekend that I had. I visited my first big event in San Francisco and I can't wait to tell you more about it. First I visited the place with my friend Si, the girl from the amazing “French by design” blog. So we went there and had a lot of fun, surrounded by all those creative people and their beautiful stuff. But first let me tell you about the Renegade Craft Fair - this is a big fair taking place in 7 different cities - 6 in US and one in London, UK which began back in 2003 in Chicago. I have never visited bigger curated indie-craft marketplace than this one. Here are some of the beautiful things that I found and loved there.

You better be ready for the weekend because we are going to Italy

So it is Friday again, yey! Do you have plans for the weekend? I will probably visit a craft fair, popular coffee shop here in San Francisco and I have some plans to take some photos and if I still have some time left (which I doubt) - to retouch some photos which are waiting in my to-do list.

So we should celebrate the end of the week by taking a look at this beautiful Italian villa. Simple and cozy, in the heart of Tuscany and you can discover some very beautiful design pieces there. What I love the most there though is the mood that this places evokes. No pressure, everything is simple, clean and close to the nature.

Smart bedroom idea for tiny apartments

Look what a great idea I found today, browsing through the pictures of Vincent Kartheiser’s Hollywood cabin on Dwell. There, the designer Finn Roberts, whose family by the way were carpenters and builders, creates a very nice bedroom suitable for tiny spaces. The bed was designed to hang from the ceiling and can be hoisted up and pulled down as needed. Clever, right?

Design mix v.2.0.

ONE did you heard about Vifa? Wireless and portable loudspeakers with stunning design. They're not for sale yet… but look promising considering the fact that Vifa makes some quality speakers. So please hurry, Vifa I need one of those

The summer retreat of the Danish stylist

Hello friends,
are you ready for another beautiful home tour? This time it is a cozy Scandinavian cottage with charming details and amazingly beautiful kitchen. It is a small, old, traditional wooden house close to the sea where old and new is mixed very carefully by the owner, the stylist and photographer Mette Wotkjær.

Summer atmosphere and the folding chairs

I know it is Monday, but I thought some summer atmosphere created by the great duo - Lotta Agaton and Pia Ulin would add a pinch of good mood and inspiration, right? 
I like the combination of solid wood, white and here we see it back in action. However, to me the most impressive are these folding chairs designed by Mogens Koch. Did you know that they are actually designed for a competition for church interior? In 1932 this idea obviously was not so popular and the chairs were not successful back then... but in 1960 and later in 2013-2014 they are an absolute hit. I personally adore the version with the caramel colored leather.

Gypsy spirits

Those of you (me included) who adore feathers, distressed leather boots, wood, antiques, gypsy treasures and the sun - you may have heard already about the stunning clothing and accessories shop from Australia - Spell Design. I wrote twice here about things related to their work and nothing can stop me to show more of their stuff, simply because they have spirit, passion, style and are constant source of inspiration. The first time was about an “Indian princess from Australia” and the second post was about the most stylish and intimate wedding that I have ever seen. Anyway, another two lookbooks by “Spell Design” and more inspiration for us. Enjoy it.
