Ernest Zacharevic

I recently discovered Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic whose works embellish the streets of Johor Baru and Singapore. They´re a fresh breath for the city and they convey a sense of humor most of us lack. 😉 These ones surprise children or animals interacting with elements of buildings or other nearby objects. I find them genius! 🙂

Brunchcity by Andrea G.Portolés and Bea Crespo

Too cute not to blog about it! A photographer and an illustrator went together to make a series about what people across the world eat for brunch. What an ingenious idea! I´m sure you´ll recognize most of them! What do you have for brunch where you live? In Romania you´d probably grab some pastry while in Norway you´ll most likely have a raisin bun. 😉 Enjoy!

Artsy beginnings

There´s something about new year that makes you want to improve, grow, change. It also applies to the outside world- freshen up your home, get a couple of new plants, change your hair style, have a mani-pedi. I love collecting beauty and what better excuse to do so than New Year´s Eve promotion codes!

Today I acquired these prints from Hilde Mork´s  web store and I can´t wait to get them! The first goes in the bedroom and the second one in the living room. Or maybe the kitchen. What do you reckon? I love the faded colors, the greys and the fact that they´re both understated. Any New Year´s purchases on your part?;-)

Furniture I want

Lately we´ve been trying to make do with what we have and store some of our less practical (but oh so pretty!) pieces of furniture in the attic for the next apartment/house. But there´s something about a good environment that you just can´t achieve with a crappy couch. Not only is it too small for two, but you ca´t even have a nap on it!;-) (and you know how I feel about naps!) So I started looking around, mostly online and since we decided we should invest in an everlasting piece, the prices were bordering insanity.

However, the internet is not called mighty for nothing, so I found some gorgeous bits here.  Not only do they have the nicest leather couch ever made, but they also sell art, rugs and antique pieces. Take a good look at this four seats wonder called Modell ”924” and manufactured by Vatne Lenestolfabrikk in the 60s or 70s, ´cause it´s going to be ours!
