Just wanted to share a bit of nature from our front garden.  

Such a beautiful sight to welcome me home from a long day at work, and again in the mornings this host of pretty roses great me *good day*.

SUMMERTIME IN LONDON


Took this on my walk to work, the moment and scene had such a tranquil and happy summer feel.

Have been a bit absent from my blog lately - lots have been going on, lots of good things which I will share more about soon.  And some very exciting news is that my folks are coming for a visit all the way from South Africa!  I have been busy getting ready for their arrival next week.

Hoping to keep up blogging while their here...

Hope everyone else is enjoying the new season's arrival wherever you are!

COOL PACKAGING


I'm not a big Pringles fan myself, but if these were available on our shelves I'll definitely give them a try.
As far as I can see this packaging concept was designed by a Swedish student for the Scandinavian market - as a personal project.

DITTE ISAGER PHOTOGRAPHER - MORE WHITE INTERIOR INSPIRATION



I blogged about this property not so long ago - but seeing these beautifully photographed interiors I just had to share again with you all. 

I think the message is becoming quite clear - we don't need lots to live a full life.  Less in this case is definitely so much more...  I do adore!

And on that note - hope you'll all have a wonderful week-end x

PURE SIMPLICITY


A beautifully crafted wooden bench, simplistic in design - sturdy and functional, delightful on the eye.... one single cushion, grey off course!  A teapot, a cup and a stack of books.  And almost fading into the background is the final piece to the puzzle.... A crisp white standing lamp.

Just looking at this image I feel calm, I can feel my head clearing of all today's clutter and noise and ideas, I am entering a state of relaxation, I am entering the 'me-time-zone'
Very important for me, but sadly I don't have such a lush and minimal space to unwind.

But what I have most certainly will make do - I just need less, less things, less paper, less sketches and drawings, and more time...

I guess I'm not the only one with this one tiny wish for just a bit more time in the day...
Time to relax, time to be productive, time to just be,  time for friends and family, time for daily chores - time to unwind, time to sleep, time to dream, time to wake up again, time for exercise, time for work....

WELLS SMART MINI ELECTRIC KETTLE


Wells Smart Mini - gives a whole new take on compact living.   It's a water purifier, a kettle, and an Ipod dock all in one.  If its a glass of cold water after your morning run, or a hot mint tea come mid day - it all happens in this one neat concept, designed by Sang Keun Sim and Kyowon L&C Design Lab.  And while the kettle is boiling, why not put on your favorite playlist?  It seems that the jury is out on the feasibility of having an Ipod docking station included on this particular item - but on the other hand - I often enjoy listening to music while cooking or baking, and this could well do the trick!  

I like the sleek design and neat chrome and wood finish - the slight curved edges creates a beautiful piece of equipment = not only functional, but also quite stylish and beautiful.

What do you think?
