Music of the day/Song of the summer

This is my song for the summer..........it was played on repeat during our road trips on the greek islands, a tune I stuck to from the first time I ever listened to it-

Parov Stelar/Keep this fire burning


On Ikea news.

Just how cool are the upcoming collections of Ikea?

Hemsmak one is all about pickling and preserving, consisting of some beautiful made carafes, jars and bottles, but the thing I'm more excited about is that part of the collection are some really pretty labels and tags in different shapes and sizes along with cute strings, pens and tapes that your delicacies project can be more fun. DIYers unite!
Collection coming out August 2015.

Sinnerlig collection is a beautiful collection of furniture and things for your working, dining or lounging space. Some of the things I love from the collection are the ceramics and the tables and couches. What is really great about this one is that the products designer Ilse Crawford used have so nice details and are made of natural materials such as cork, ceramics and glass that feel so good to touch and use. Well done!
Available from October 2015.

Olga Viskenko for Vilshenko.
Such a unique aesthetic, perfectly imperfect pairings for this sophisticated line. This is pre-fall 2015.

Take me there.

Favorite hotel destination in Austin, TX, Hotel Saint Cecilia. Loving the whole deco approach and its grandeur but also "feeling like home" vibes that the place is giving you. On my top of the list, definitely.
