new beginnings

September 10, 2013

I guess it’s a part of all creative souls to be fully present and then burn out. When a dream has faded and became unbearable.  And the only solution is to pack and run.

So there has been a lot of packing and running and unpacking again. A lot of touching moments and sweetest “till i see you again”s.  Followed by a lot of silence, taking a moment just to be.  Without any plans or expectations from self.  May be for the first time, a road without a final destination, without a goal. Scary and refreshing. Learning patience and simplicity.

And now, it’s all coming back. With blood pumping through the veins in the new way. There are big changes in the making. They are still too young to tell but soon to reveal.

All I can say for now is that I’m becoming a new persona.

bocci love

November 14, 2012

Who said you always have to re-invent the wheel?! Sometimes a little glowing sphere is all you need. These Bocci globes always make me happy… like chicken soup for your soul, you know.

my kind of darkness

October 30, 2012

I always have mixed emotions when it comes to Halloween. I’m all for playing dress up and distorting the reality for a day (just a trip to the Grocery store on that day is a treat with all the characters down the isles) but some people need to take it to the NEXT level. The kind of level that makes you want to close you eyes and erase the memory.

We are all here for boo-tiful and tasteful kind of darkness so let me present you Vivienda En La Finca by Spanish architecture and design studio A-CERO.

The design team created quite a unique setting which could totally be the dwelling of a modern-day Dracula. All elements are there: strong interplay of light and dark, seductive art curiosities and luring Gothic volumes. Everything is so well though-through, it give me the designer goose bums.

There is something forbidden but very tempting at the same time. Would you dare to come in?

new vibe

October 22, 2012

Hello lovelies, I promised not to leave you alone for too long so here am I again. This time I have something very very special. That is a little sneak preview of a highly anticipated fresh press – Kelly Wearstler’sRHAPSODY“.

Officially on sale October 23rd, the book has a lot eye-candy for Kelly’s fans. Everything we love about her vibe: daring scale interplay, brave color mixes and curious vintage finds. Did I mention a LOT of creative inspiration?

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!

a dolder moment

October 20, 2012

Oh NO! I could swear that it’s bee only a few weeks since my last post here. How this abyss of a gap happen?

Well, it’s been quite a bumpy ride (literary actually) with a few late working nights for a hotel presentation in China (or should I say early mornings?). BUT don’t be too sad for this girl quite yet. Though I found myself trying to catch up on life well too often that I’d like to, I still managed to squeeze some new adventures and fun outings. And I can’t wait to share.

For starters, my new HOTEL LOVE.  Magnificently historic Dolder Grand 5-star luxury baby in all its re-freshed beauty.

No words needed. Just submerge yourself in this serenity.

italian summer

June 17, 2012

Something about this summer and nostalgic 50s fashion that’s been calling my name lately. Or may be it’s Bianca Balti in her latest Dolce & Gabbana editorials, looking so fashionably lazy in the sun with that Bridgette Bardoe make-up and hair.

Don’t you just want to wind-off on the unplanned voyage to visit some forgotten Italian relatives right about now? Let me know if you have any, ‘coz I don’t)))

And you if you still not entirely convinced, watch this video and I guarantee you’ll get that traveling bug.

i’m back

May 29, 2012

Hello lovelies! Guess what? This work-aholic girl of yours has returned from the vacation! As part of this year’s resolution list, I swore to let “The Planner” in me loose and be spontaneous. So far that resulted in an overnight trip to Vegas (so not like me), a crash of a party (TOTALLY not me) and this last-minute trip to Mexico.

So while I’m trying to pull myself off the sofa unpack, I leave you with this dreamy editorial showcasing exactly what I was doing for the past 5 days…that is NOTHING!

the new chanel

May 4, 2012

All this recent retail design developments at work left me in the particularly dangerous shopping mood. And how can you not give in, when the Peter Marino is at his best with the new Chanel Store on Avenue Montaigne. With his off-the-wall biker looks, he knows how to hit all the right spots when it comes to retail seduction.

He had me at the first string of pearls at the staircase…and Chanel tweed wallcovering in soft gold, seriously? The man is a genius in my book. Just look at the details!

April 25, 2012

mental strength

March 7, 2012

It’s been 3 days since I had my last chocolate and I’m…..feeling FINE! Surprisingly, I’m still alive and haven’t destroyed anything in the rage of  chocolate-obsessed anger. On the opposite, I’m buddah-calm and very positive! You’d ask “why do you, poor little thing, torture yourself?” (and knowing me, you’d be totally right). However, not only I’ve decided to support my family in the Great Lent (where you become vegan for 40 days), moreover I want to practice my mental strength in restrain of something I desire the most. Somehow I feel more in control now, I don’t need to eat sweets to improve my mood or feel better.

I’m a super-human! And to prove that, I’m posting this incredibly saliva-secreting video which I watched a few times together with other mind-boggling dessert recipes (watch at your own risk!).
