inspiration: tiny kitchen

small kitchenSmall kitchen Small kitchen

I have a very small kitchen and I love to cook! This is definitely not a good combination, after all, cooking is always better if you have lots of space. In my opinion, the more the better. This kitchen, tiny and adorable, renewed my hope in small kitchens. Despite the little room, it has lots of charm and amazing details, such as the pink chairs, the cute wallpaper and the checkered floor. Beautiful!

Kinda cute, kinda creepy. This is how I define the work of artist and freelance illustrator Hsiao-Ron Cheng. She lives in Taipei, Taiwan, and uses pencil, oils, mixed media and digital to create these unusual scenes. I love that crazy classroom!

Delicious breakfast with a yummy (and very easy to make) homemade red berry jam. This jam is perfect when warm, with waffles or lemon cake. This lemon cake became a big hit in my house, it’s the second time I bake it. The recipe is from Good Food magazine and you can find it here.

Who wants to try this recipe over the weekend?

Colors of the Wind

Colors of the Wind is a series of photographs and large size projections inspired by air and wind, created by the German-Czech photographic duo René & Radka. I love how, even though we can see the sky and the horizon, it looks like some of these pictures were taken under water. Beautiful!

You can see this amazing work until September 1, on the 1st floor of department store Le Bon Marché in Paris.

This is one of those lazy fridays, when we just want to spend all day in bed. And maybe get up in the evening to see what our friends are planning for the night. Maybe. :)

Lazy or not, a great friday for everyone!
