MINIMAL MONOCHROME SPACE BY Rzemiosło Architektoniczne








Can this really be a visualisation/ render?

I am speechless!  Wouldn't it be a treat to be able to create such realistic spaces?  Beautiful minimal, whites and greys and woods.  The dark kitchen cabinets really compliments the otherwise white apartment.

I love those wooden chunks for side tables - adds a bit of warmth and a slight rustic feel.

A HOUSE IN AIX-EN-PROVENCE










Some new images of the house of Amélie Vigneron in Aix-en-Provence.  Stark, minimal and soothing, yet with a splash of colour.  Lots of natural light - beautiful bright and airy space.

Love the contrasting charcoal concrete steps.

HAPPY MONDAY



Hope you're all having a good start to a good week.  
Mine's feeling just a tad grey at present, but I'm sure this too will pass

BLUEBERRY CAFE, KZN MIDLANDS, SOUTH AFRICA BY ANATOMY DESIGN














Blueberry Cafe in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa have recently re-opened after an exciting refurbishment.

I love the rustic feel, high ceilings and polished concrete floors.  The open shelves stacked with a wide range of local products and produce, and the lightness and brightness of the space.  Looks like you can while away a good few hours here - taking in the beautiful landscape and all there is to offer on the food and drink side of things.

Will be added to my list of places to visit sometime in the future...

HELLO WEEKEND


Wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

The sun is out and my kitchen doors are wide open to the garden and it feels like winter is finally over!
Maybe it's too soon, but I feel like it may be a good time to start packing away the wintry coats and jumpers and unpack some springtime t's and skirts!  Think a bit of time in the garden is also on the cards today.

Going to have my morning matcha latte and then I'm ready for what will be another awesome weekend back in London!

HK LIVING



















I love everything about HK Living, their products, their styling, the colourways!  Would love to live in a HK Living house!  I already have my eye on a couple of bits and pieces from their new summer catalogue!

15.0% ICE CREAM SPOONS DESIGNED BY NAOKI TERADA




With summer around the corner;  well exactly 38 hours away and counting ....  images of bright hot sunny days, clear blue skies, and shimmery icy cold ocean, crashing waves, lots of laughter and happy smiley faces appear in my minds eye.

Also - time for ice cream, and frozen deserts and lots of it too!

Just as well I stumbled upon these delightful ice cream spoon sets, designed by Naoki Terada.  Noaki Terada is the Japanese Architect who invented these stylishly beautiful heat-conducting spoons that slice right through your rock solid ice cream, softening as it cuts through the frosty fare.

'Tereada deserves some kind of medal for his innovative utensil, dubbed 15.0%, a reference to the Japanese regulation that requires ice cream to include 15 percent milk solids. With a wide handle, the spoon is designed with the shape of your hand in mind, in order to give you more power when you exert the brute force to required to extract your desert from the carton.
Made out of aluminum, it comes in three styles specific to different flavor, each shaped for optimum bowl-scraping. The vanilla version has an egg-shaped tip, the chocolate model comes with an angular end, and the strawberry one is more like a spork. While the spoon is supposed to be sturdy enough to help you gorge on ice cream, you might not have the strength to resist. '  [Lemnos via Inventor Spot]

Now the only questions remains:  Where can I get my hand on a gorgeous little set of 15.0% spoons?
