Balls & Boobs


Too many balls and boobs for one room, don't you think ?

But I have to say that the rest of the house has some cool elements, and some not so cool elements. You decide. More pictures at The Designerpad

Dramatic Minimal


Entrance to a house designed by A-Cero Studio near Madrid, Spain. I am not a big fan of concrete structures they tend to be cold and industrial, but this entrance is dramatic.

More from this house over at Dezeen.

Good Curves

Muscle Muscle bench by Alexandre Moronnoz via Chic Tip

I really like the fluidity of this design especially that it is made of steel, I would have changed the name and made something more ummmm… “fluid” ?

Lets Pray


SJE2 San Josemaria Escriva Church by Javier Sordo Madelano Bringas via Contemporist

I was taken by this church. Looking at the pictures I felt that I wanted to be there and pray. The architecture captures the light in such a beautiful “heavenly” way. It is devoid of ornament giving way to an uninterrupted spiritual experience.

Wouldn’t you want to pray there ? If it’s your thing that is !

Warm Buns


Not only do I not know where to place this “radiator” in any room but what may have bothered me more is the look on this guy’s face and where his hand is. Well, I guess he is wondering about what is happening to his sperm count with all the heat.

Why do we need a radiator chair ?

A White Dish Story

Many years ago I bought a collection of white dishes from a very well known and expensive, I should add, brand, thinking that how could a white plate become old. I thought plain can never be either dated nor too popular to loose it’s appeal. Little did I know that white plates will be all over the place and the thing that is being imitated right left and center, from the biggest names all the way to cheap knock offs from you know where. WHITE PLATES BECAME THE IN THING AND WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED ?


Recently in collaboration with Lenox, Donna Karan launched her own version of yet another white plate, and she says: “Our new tableware & giftware collection is divine, and truly unlike anything out there.”  I can manage to overlook the “divine” part, but unlike anything out there ?


So, my question is do you want more white plates and are these plates unlike anything out there ?

“Moving” Ceramics

It is May, finally and “Bloom” was only appropriate for this hopefully blooming month, enough of cold and gloom, only long summer days, blooming gardens and blue skies ahead.
Bloom modern living room
“Bloom” an installation by Los Angeles ceramic artist Katherine Dube
An interview with the designer and more pictures of her work is on Houzz, very interesting techniques and beautiful pieces. Could not help think about dust, but sometimes we have to disregard certain issues for the sake of beauty, no ? I love the white on white and the movement of the pieces.
