Art London...

A few of the pictures that caught my - or my daughters - eye at Art London today.
(Colourful selection today - but that's what we usually go for....)

South african affair...

Cape town apartment of a fashion designer Marianne Fassler, who stayed true to her roots and used only local design.
The striking bar stools by Haldane Martin flank a counter by Antoine Grobler. And isn't the golden mosaic-tiled splash back cool?

 This wooden counter is also created by Antoine Grobler - the wooden blocks underneath are a great idea! Model is wearing one of the designers newest creations.

Hope you are having a good start to the week! x

Friday the 13th!!

I usually like Friday the 13th, not everybody does. So, some encouraging thoughts on a collage that my daughter Luisa made for her friend Amalia - love it!

Have a good weekend! x

Dark and eccentric

House in the French countryside:
Love the dark, moody, golden rooms....the lighting....and the art...great combination.

Good storage

First a classic in my books - I ripped this out of a magazine in 1998! And it survived years of throwing out - must be the German in me that has a thing for organised storage!

Piano can be hidden away in a cupboard - very clever.

What a nice little office space with one of my favourite chairs!
And also love the colour of the wood combined with the concrete walls.

Clever under-bed storage 
Have a good weekend! x
