I’m back from Easter break and getting ready for the Orthodox Easter now, in fact I haven’t done a single thing about it, but I still have tomorrow to dye some eggs and make Pasca, the traditional Easter cake I hadn’t even tasted until I started making it myself. Haha! Continue reading
If you haven´t had the chance to see the exhibition yet, you should! I´ve been meaning to go for ages and I´m happy to say I can finally check it off my list! It closes on the 15th, so it was now or never. I´d never been to Henie Onstad, mainly because I don´t drive and I never go out of town if I don´t have to, unless it´s for the big abroad!
But Kusama was impressing! Of course, we could have picked a better day, Sundays are busy and there were queues and kids everywhere, but then I´m not the very artsy type, so I didn´t need ages to see everything, I was happy to take in the atmosphere and get dizzy from all the polka dots. 😉 Continue reading
Steve McCurry, an iconic contemporary photographer from Philadelphia interprets the subject of reading as a universal activity. The pictures are ever so beautiful in their everyday composition, they portray the joy of reading, be it a newspaper, a religious book, a novel or a magazine. Enjoy!
Margarita Kareva is a frisky addition to the photography world, from Russia, with love. She´s only been doing it for 3 years, but her portfolio is amazing already. She uses female characters to depict princesses and witches, adding surreal details to her fairy-tale pictures. Enjoy!
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!
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!
ViSSEVASSE is run by Dorthe Mathiesen and Karsten Noel, two big names in fashion, scenography and graphics from Denmark. Their posters envision cities og landmarks in a nordic style, simple and alluring, reminiscent of the art deco era. You can purchase these beauties online, or you can try your local interior design store. I know I will!;-)
