love stoned 13 July, 2011

I’ve learned the hard way to never…NEVER….post something on the blog if you are seriously thinking of buying it for yourself. Buy it first – then post about it, otherwise you risk a “sold out” disappointment. So I open up a secret, I did treat myself to a certain birthday gift from the below list before showing all the cards.

Anyways, I’ve been love stoned for quite a while now, especially with so many lovely options to choose from.

my kinda registry 18 May, 2011

I’ve been shopping on registry lists quite a lot lately, which made me wish we’ve had “the American” wedding. Since there is no tradition of wedding registry in Russia, I feel like I’ve missed out on a great opportunity to score some beautiful dinnerware (‘coz let’s face it – when else would you treat yourself to a hundred-dollar plate?!).

So I’ve decided to put together my registry for “just in case” occasion…that is just in case I have extra $100 laying around. The first on the list would come the new DVF Home Collection. So fun and whimsy, it brings the memories of warm summer evenings…

…when you can pick a fresh bouquet,

…chase butterflies,

…gaze into the night sky laying on the beach,

…be creative and artsy,

…or try something new and unexpected.

andre fu 18 April, 2011

This Chinese design genius totally topped my creative overload last week. Before I didn’t even know that such state of mind exists. Browsing blogs and design magazines I always¬† left me wanting more. While researching for two hotel projects I’m working on right now I came across Andre Fu and my design cravings were fully satisfied with the first few clicks.

WARNING! Intended to be taken in small doses due to the high risk of creative overload!

My absolute favorite project – The Upper House hotel in Hong Kong.

Wow, the longest post ever!
