My Working Space – Japanese Style

Huelsta Low Desk Japanese

Once you found the perfect furniture, you can’t get enough of it. This coffee table/working space/design wonder is my favorite piece of furniture in our apartment (our huge wardrobe hasn’t arrived, yet so you understand why it didn’t get first place).

What’s your favorite winter piece this year? Continue reading How to get up and get dressed #12: Autumn Coolness

A white shirt, golden linen shorts, roman sandals, a color statement clutch and a not so small pearl necklace. If worn over-sized, it looks cool and relaxed all I need in summer.

How to get up and get dressed: Summer Nights

Summer nights are the best time of the day in places like Madrid. It’s cool enough to get out on the streets and compared to the north of Europe people really go out. It’s like comparing a desert to a jungle…

French Garden Roses

No posts lately as I have been out gardening a lot. With all that inspiration I got from Monty Don’s travel videos I grabbed my idea of a French garden and now it starts taking shape. There will be a pottage (in mini version), a sitting area with roses and a herb garden are already visible…
