MAISON // Meredith Chair by ANTHROPOLOGIE

29.5.17




People are really loving Anthropologie's Meredith ardmore chair.  They keep making them in new colors and fabrics.  The velvet is clearly a customer favorite, what with there being 20+ colors and also a love seat as an accompaniment.  However the newly released white Belgian version is a most refreshing update for Spring.  Or for winter.  Or for anytime, really.  Especially since it's $500 less than the velvet version and you get free shipping to boot.

CAKED // Our Annual guide to WEDDING CAKES

26.5.17






Deciding on a wedding cake can be so stressful.  The actual taste not-withstanding (yes, this is important, too), the design choices can be overwhelming and -- so I've heard -- incapacitating.  

If you decide to go with a floral motif, your wedding cake design can serve as a compliment to your bridal bouquet.  Having problems committing to tulips vs chrysanthemums?  Why not assign your second or third choices to your cake.  Consider it a consolation round of the amazing, jaw-dropping ideas you just could not incorporate into your bridal bouquet. Be damned those nay-sayers who said that you couldn't get everything you wanted.  You've got a wedding cake design to contend with and damnit, you won't let flowers get the better of you.

This year we dedicate our annual wedding cake post to floral designs.  Today more than ever, they can look like the real thing -- and you don't even have to worry about watering them.  Just a fridge, and a lot of creativity, will do.

Enjoy!

PASTEL PRETTY // Fanaberia Crepes & Cafe in POLAND

22.5.17





In a small Polish town on the Baltic coast, Sopot, recently-opened Fanaberia Crepes & Cafe is delighting both locals and visitors with its soft, clean design and yummy pancakes & crepes.  Designed by Sopot-based P/B STUDIO, the approach was in keeping with a very cheerful, seaside vibe with coastal accents of navy, dusty corals, roping, metal fixtures, and ratan -- Oh, and of course, lots of light wood.

NEED / I'm Outa Here Passport Cover

9.5.17




Having a passport cover is not about style.  Well, ok, maybe it is.  Just a little.  I love this case, because it's sassy and it's something I say all of the time.  Also the color palette is one of my faves -- rose-gold layered on a faded orchid pink.  Plus the calligraphy style is childish bordering on obnoxious.  And then it's all lower case.  And so silly. It's very, very sillies.

But having a passport cover can legit save you from some compromising situations.  For example, if you haplessly put it in your jean pocket and forget that it's there, and then to firmly fold and press your jeans into an overnight bag for your sexy weekend getaway to the beach -- and then remember it after you returned from the beach and your sexy weekend getaway bag got swallowed up by the sea, multiple times, really, too many to count, because you were too preoccupied about saving your glass of wine from toppling over.  

Apparently officers at customs don't like passports that have been folded in multiple spots and then drenched in salt water.  I mean, if you had already hooked up your passport to a substantial leather cover of some sort containing a witty self-deprecating meme -- the likelihood of you forgetting your passport in your jean pocket could be significantly reduced.  Just a head's up.

MAISON / Horizontal House in ARGENTINA

5.5.17



The design premise for this unique bungalow (aka 'horizontal house') was simple: integrate with nature as much as possible.  Using natural materials such as wood, marble and concrete, architect firm DIVISARE played around with proportion and space, ultimately delivering a unique living space in a challenging environment (a suburban area, I mean -- they can be nasty).

The house is divided into two main areas; the north-south axis gathers the garage, kitchen, living, dining and service units, while on the east-west corridor are located the private areas, finishing in the main suite.
