Flederhaus (or “bat house”) is an open space in Vienna, Austria, near the Museums Quarter, designed by the architectural duo Heri & Salli. The building has a cluster of hammocks, where visitors can hang out, relax and check the amazing view. So cool!

Working from home is always a challenge. There are so many distractions and the clutter can take over of the place, hampering the smooth flow of creativity and inspiration. These home offices seem to be perfect examples of how you can have a beautiful and super neat work enviroment. So inspiring!
(Remember this post about creative spaces and work desks?)
Great color on the walls and curtains. Love Jessica Hoeft‘s sweet home office.
I wish I had all this space to hang a swing. How awesome is Fabien Barral‘s home office (and it’s in France too)?
I adore the simplicity of this office. White walls, wood furniture, books… what alse do we really need? Sophie and Patric’s summer house in the south part of Sweden, via Dos Family.
How about you? Do you work from home? What are your inspirations?
I loved the tableware accessories designed by Marcel Wanders for KLM Airlines. Also loved the Bento Boxes. So elegant! This post made me miss traveling (but not the airplane food)!

Eric Elmosnino is absolutely amazing as Serge Gainsbourg in Joann Sfar‘s movie, adapted from his own graphic novel about the singer. I especially liked the surreal elements of fantasy that Sfar incorporated into the narrative. Have you seen the movie? What did you guys think?
Some of my favorite images of Gainsbourg (the real one):
The Secret World of Serge Gainsbourg - 2007 Vanity Fair article about the singer, with testimonials of his daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, Anna Karina and Jeanne Moreau, among others. Unmissable!
My pics of Serge Gainsbourg‘s grave, in the Montparnasse Cemitery, in Paris. Pic 1, Pic 2.
1. So close to the sky, in Alipants‘ pic.
2. Weeds + daisies, in Hannah Louise Curson‘s pic.
3. Great colors, in Caiti Borruso‘s pic.
4. In a summer day, in Irene Suchocki‘s pic.
On my last trip to Paris, I couldn’t resist and bought a beautiful Diana-mini – lomographic camera that uses 35mm film and can produce either square or half-frame photos. It was love at first sight! Here are some pictures from my first ever adventure with her on the streets of Paris:
Loved the vintage effect! My Diana-mini is JIYU, a special edition in honor of Japan, with a floral design symbolizing cherishing freedom. Too pretty!

Aren’t these leather hair pins super cute? You can find them and other sweet objects created by Mariko at her etsy store iluxo. (Her blog is also very lovely!)
