Light + Airy Basket Lighting From PET Lamp

June 8, 2016

In addition to my obsession with pillows, chairs and art, I am obsessed with lighting in all it’s forms. Candles, pendants, sconces, lamps… That’s why when I read about PET Lamp in German magazine Schöner Wohnen, I knew I had to share them with the rest of world who isn’t regularly tuning in to German mags. PET Lamp, based in Madrid, reinvent the way baskets are being used – and remakes them into amazing basket lamps that you will swoon for. Check this.

Aren’t they so light and airy and just drop dead stunning? I have basket lamps in my hallway (not by PET though) and love them. They throw the best patterned shadows onto the walls when illuminated too. Here are some more that caught my eye in different patterns and styles, including the next and final photo as shown in the always-inspiring location of Piet Hein Eek

Rosenthal Hot Spots Colorful Vases

June 8, 2016

Oh my goodness guys look at these HOT SPOT vases, coming soon from German porcelain giant Rosenthal. Designed by Christine Rathmann, a Frankfurt-based designer, these definitely don’t look like anything you’ve ever seen at Rosenthal. I have many of their vases, both vintage and new, in white and pastel tones but nothing like these…

They are stunning but I wouldn’t group them together like this. I’d have one in one room and by done with it. Or 3 of the same in 3 different sizes. Or, if I chickened out on the color and went with all white, I’d group 5 on a shelf. Continue Reading…

Whimsical Decor By Nathalie Lete

June 8, 2016

I’m a big fan of, and subscribe to, Milk Decoration magazine and love reading their website as often as I get a chance. I came by so many great stories there this morning over breakfast but one stood out because I’ve been getting press release after press release lately for Nathalie Lete. Milk covered her too so I thought I needed to share her latest work because apparently she’s all the rage – again!

I say again because she was big for awhile and then I didn’t see much from her for a period of time but that’s changed because now I’m hearing about her newest this and her latest that all of the time! Continue Reading…

Tabletop: Decorate With A Table Clamp + Rod!

June 7, 2016

I have a very clever party decoration to share with you today, but first… Hello everyone! Peony season is here and is one of the most beautiful times of the year, don’t you think? In Germany it’s one of our biggest and most celebrated flower seasons (here they are called Pfingstrose with the various shades of pink being the most popular variety found in every flower kiosk for very little money). As long as there are fresh, fragrant peonies in the flower shops, gardens and at the farmers’ markets, they’ll be in my house too! The same holds true for rhubarb, which is also in season at the moment. Yum!

Tabletop: Decorate With A Table Clamp + Rod!

When decorating with peonies, my table setting almost always becomes a romantic one in soft colors. Who is playing the leading role in the following picture series is clear — Miss Peony! For my tabletop, I chose four different types of peonies in shades of white and pale pink, some with yellow inside. I’m not sure of the name of this particular one, but if you have time maybe you can help me. Also, there is a list here for Continue Reading…

Visit Maastricht To Shop + Eat + See Temporama

June 2, 2016

Would you like to travel with me? Today you can, we will shop + eat together! I just got back from Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in Holland known for its medieval-era architecture. I got to hit Temporama during opening weekend too, so I saw it before anyone else and it was great. More on Temporama later… But first of all, how are you? Are you doing good? Do you have any great plans for the first weekend of June? I will go to a music fest and see a few friends, and maybe go for a ride in the car through the countryside. And you? Okay, onto my tips… Let’s visit Maastricht together!

Visit Maastricht To Shop + Eat + See Temporama Festen

First off, Maastricht was a very pleasant surprise. A hidden gem. You always hear about Paris, London and Rome. Or Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen. But Maastricht? Not really. Yet it’s beautiful! A shopper’s paradise too. I’d actually not heard of it until I was with my friend who lives near the border and told me that we could go over to the Netherlands while I visit here if I’d like. She suggested some shopping outlets Continue Reading…

June 1, 2016

Hello everyone and hello June! This month is the start of summer and is also my birthday month. These days I’d much prefer to have a birthday drink than a birthday cake so I am sharing my go to summer drink, cheers!

Recipe: Gin + Grapefruit Summer Soda

As my go to drink in the warmer months as there is nothing quite as refreshing like a cold and tart citrus spritz. I wouldn’t say that I’m the biggest fan of gin, but done right, it’s a real Continue Reading…
