interesting display /232

Amazing inside out: a lot of green and the feeling of calm and quiet.
The beautiful kitchen is handcrafted by Tindall (on their website there are few other pictures of that place, from different views).

again tattoos

I talked few days ago about my new tattoo plans...here some nice small ideas by the american photographer Austin Tott: "Tiny Tattoos" a series that creates connections and parallels between tattoos wrists and decor in the background.
A tattoo bike on background of New York, a letter on the bottom of letters and quotes on a background of books the series is to discover.

Have you seen the small little fox?

I wish you a very happy weekend!
Listen to good music, have nice and regenerating meals for your stomach and your soul, spend time with friends and laugh a lot.
I love that Joey Ramone's pic taken from vintage-rama.

tattoo plans

Thinking about a new tattoo, don't know exactly what I want.
I was thinking about a sweet little fox hugging a beagle like Ernesto, maybe made by Nicoz Balboa (a super cool artist I met in Berlin at a show she made long time ago), or maybe something more geometric... I guess I must think a lot more about that, because I'd like to complete my left arm, just close to the anatomic heart I have.

how do you like biscuits?

On one of the last newsletter from Etsy there were the coolest rolling pins ever seen.
Aren't they cool?
I think this could be the perfect gift for someone who loves cooking biscuits (I have a couple of friends in mind). My favorite are the one with the geometric circles and the one personalized with a text.

what's your ideal bag?


I am completely in love with my Fjallraven Kanken backpack, but sometimes I look around for something new - I must say I use totebags and the Fjallraven, nothing else, that's why I look for other ideas sometimes -and Sunday surfing on Etsy I found this shop: BagDoRi.
I love two models in that shop: the Tidy Urban and the Cotton Square. Do you?
Do you love to use backpack or you prefer more traditional bags? One of the reason why I use backpacks is that I bike to to all my various errands during the day.

wishing for summer


Today it's raining outside and I am really wishing for Summer: I want ice creams, naked legs and ride my bike, I want to wear sunglasses till 8pm and just hang around thinking how good is life on Summer! I really think I can't wait 2/3 months to have all this.

k24

Kathrine Højriis is a Graphic Designer from Denmark and she made some special sculpture with hamabeads. In an article she said she takes the inspiration for her pearl art stems from cross-stitch patterns and heraldry, which is medieval use of patterns in arms dress.
The result is amazing, I was so surprised of it I never thought about such an interesting use of hamabeads.

interesting display /230

The interesting display serie is mostly about display I like and I'd like to be able to represent in my own place (at least mostly of the times). In this case the picture has been taken in The Student Hotel in Amsterdam, an all-inclusive and affordable accommodation for students. The location is quite cool and to be a student living there should be really comfortable.
I found an article about the hotel on Casa Vogue Globo.

millet and arugola pesto

Do you remember I told you I'd share some recipes of what I am eating?
Well, last week I shared this pic on Instagram and some friends asked me to share the recipe (for 4 people)...here you are my dears.

Millet and arugola pesto
280 gr millet
2 cups arugola
1 spoon pine nuts
1 spoon olive oil
2 spoons grated bread
salt and pepper

First of all you have to rinse out the millet (to remove impurities), than cook for about 20 minutes it in salty water, equal to 2 times the volume of the millet.
In the mean time with a minipimer mix up the ingredients of the pesto: arugola, pine nuts, oil grated bread an a pinch of salt an pepper.
Once the millet is ready (and the water has been absorbed) mix it with the pesto.

Sweet carrots with basils
4 medium size carrots
1 spoon of dried basil
salt

Peel and cut the carrots and cook them with salt and a bit of water, once they are almost ready add the basil. Then place on top of the millet and taste everything.

Please note: I used grated bread instead of Grana cheese because I wanted to make a vegan recipe, but you can use Grana if you prefer.

a wintercoat

a wintercoat
I was checking my Pinterest board called Nice Outfits this morning and, I think I need a wintercoat since I am collecting pictures on pictures of outfits with coats. Maybe It is too late right now, since every shop is already setting up the shop windows for Spring. Next year maybe? I like the one in the picture (by Collage Vintage) because it is a coat but also a jacket so I guess you can use it also in the middle seasons...Anyway it is on sale on SheInside for just 34€ - maybe I should buy it.

This A-frame bookshelves are amazing, I like everything that has the shape of a triangle (or an A), but I also like that it surrounds the entrance of another room. In these days my passion for design and homedecor is growing and growing, because I am watching on the net an Italian TV Channel, called Laeffe, where there are a lot of shows about art, design and architecture; and since our house is always changing there are a lot of inspirations! The A-frame bookshelf is taken from MarieClaire Maison.
