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?

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’s “RHAPSODY“.
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!

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!).
I’ve been an awful blogger lately. With a completely unbalanced April schedule I barely could find time for sleep let aside writing and inspiring you guys. I’ll try to improve as getting back on tracks.
For now I’m leaving you with fantastic art photography by ellemoss. Soft color palettes with a healthy dose of weird curiosity. Got me thinking that I need to freshen up my art collection…

New year starts with resolutions. To be honest, I had quite a few dragging from the previous year. Not the most pleasant feeling so I decided to tackle those long forgotten procrastinations. The first on the list is to FINALLY redesign my website. It is especially shameful since my husband is web developer. We’ve been working on it for a few days now and it’s coming out pretty good. I though I’ll show you a teaser of my new logo.
Let me know what do you think.
