Few could disagree that life itself is all about the perspective every individual has on its happenings. Where some see obstacles, others see opportunities. Where some see opportunities, others in fact create them. Some devote their lives into self discovery and full self realization. Others are busy creating a puzzle out of fragments of other people’s lives. Whichever the case, it’s all a matter of perspective. Continue reading
Eva Solo Collection is without a doubt one of our favorites here. From the living, bath and outdoor section to the cooking and serving one – We absolutely love the simplicity, distinct lines and high degree of functionality characterizing their Danish designed products.
Today, we are serving cups of tea here! Quite cozy don’t you find? With autumn already having started in the part of the globe from where these lines are written, all I can think of is indulging in refreshing cups of excellent tea during work hours in my home office, only to drink some more tea later, in the evening in order to relax and make my way to bed prepared for sweet dreams.

Designers never seize to amaze us with their innovative ideas. It must be the case that they are always inspired by the world and objects around them. I’m a confessed design lover and cannot help it but applaud when people get creative by seeing things differently. What particularly attracts me is the boldness of designers to incorporate some humor and / or irony in their creations.
Take as an example this wonderful pendant lamp, which was conceived by Felix Guyon and realized by the French company La firme. Continue reading
For over centuries walls have been beyond simple ways of keeping a roof above our heads. They are a great opportunity for expression, while bringing in our homes the unique personal touch each one of us wishes. Wallpapers have been a trend that gains more and more ground again.
Glamora vinyl wall coverings are not only offering a huge range of designs, they are also making it possible for us to have our own photographs, illustrations or graphic designs printed sur mesure. Continue reading
When working with clients in redesigning and decorating their spaces, let it be living ones or working ones, I’m always careful to bring forward the importance and great impact organization and practicality have on beauty. If one wishes to live in a beautiful space, the need to start from these points is primary. Purchasing and adding pretty objects to our abodes comes long after we have dealt with less appealing matters such as for example, well… waste, rubbish or else garbage.
In the best of cases, we’ll chose practical and neat looking garbage bins, much like the Qualy Block, where we’ll separate and store all our households waste, till transported outside our homes and working places. Continue reading
Recently looking for inspiration at contemporary fashion, innovative British artist Kathy Dalwood turned to Japanese fashion designer Junua Watanabe for his impressive “fashion as sculpture” approach. The bizarre and imaginative ways in which he dresses women bodies and especially the tight, stretched fabric he covers their faces with, became a creative fire starter for Kathy’s new experimentation with plaster. Continue reading
Karim Rashid certainly needs no introduction, but perhaps you haven’t so far been aware of the amazing furniture he has been designing for the Italian company Tonelli. Or have you? In any case, presenting one of my favorite ones here will encourage you to find out more about this magnificent cooperation.
Spot light on “Kat” – a coffee table exclusively made from three different types of glass, which as their name implies, they… cut into each other. Do they really? Well of course they don’t! This is exactly where the design’s greatness lies. A perfect fit for in fact six pieces of glass, which appear as they are three, interconnected with one another. Captivating to the least! Continue reading
For me, redesigning my home is always a treat, but decorating the children’s rooms is even better. From wall decals to colors and fabrics, this is the place where you can really dream. Which brings me to the wonderful creations of I’d Like To Be, a London-based design studio founded by Jamie Nash. Continue reading
26 year old Italian designer William Raffredi certainly knows how to adjust to the difficult times of crises his own country as much as many others all around Europe and around the world are facing. To conceive and to create great design is one thing. To be able to do so by using low cost materials, easily found everywhere is taking design a step further and much more close to the needs of current societies.
Horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines paired together with curves, the three different designs of shelves William has brilliantly come up with are simple constructions made of flat wooden boards, lengths of electrical cable, light bulbs and some light fixtures. Continue reading
When names such as Arne Jacobsen and Paul Smith meet, the least one can expect is some breathtaking designs to be born. Since the 60s, the bar series of Jacobsens’s Cylinda Line has been every design oriented person’s dream and desire of the perfect serving or everything from Dry Martini Cocktails to the classic Whiskey Soda.
In the hands of Paul Smith, this elegant collection of bar accessories has turned into a true dream in black with beautiful, seemingly handwritten engravings into the black surface. How awesomely and surprisingly innovative! Continue reading
