Sonoma Spa Retreat...

Today, I'm sharing with you this wonderful Spa in Sonoma designed by Aidlin Darling Design of San Francisco.  Found via the Minimallissimo. 

An extension to an existing rammed earth house the spaces were crafted out to maximize the beautiful san francisco views, yet respecting the nature and surrounding environment

Time to unwind for the weekend.

excerpt from architects :
In each project, we seek to uncover an inherent spirit of place and interpret constraints as catalysts for performative design. The individual character of each project emerges through poetic spatial relationships, material richness, and exacting detail.

Gourmet Tea...

A smart, functional and colourful box by Brazilian designer Alan Chu for 
The Gourmet Tea in Sao Paulo. 
His second project for the The Gourmet Tea company, well thought of and cleverly executed, with purple sliding counter to reveal a 'L' shape counter and work spaces behind for beverage preparation. While doors on wheels are opened to reveal storage and display spaces for retail and merchandise display.

Wire Sculpture...

These lovely wire sculpture by japanese artist Masao Seki are really light and dainty but definitely a heavy weight in the looks department.
Hope to get a few when I'm in Tokyo this summer.

Wedding guest...

Tomorrow is hubby's friend's wedding.
What to wear? What to wear? 
Most of the time we see loads of bride gowns and images of the wedding couples of various blogs. So for today I am looking at some fashion ideas for the guest instead. 
We have to attend Church wedding and the dinner reception in the evening...
Hmmm two outfits to think of...
I would like the mint green dress for church and the last image, fuchsia and tangerine colored long dress for the dinner reception

Hats, hats, hat...

Crazy for hats? They can be really elegant piece of fashion accessories if worn the right way. Not so much of a trend here in my country but i do admire the regality that comes with it when you wear one.

Lots of interior now opt to go for the expose brick look. Some are actually part of the existing building while some re completely new to create that old and raw look.
Nevertheless they seem to work great in these spaces...

Books space...

I have a weakness for books, I have so many books everywhere around the house, design books, magazines, fictions, biographys and now a growing collection of kids books.
They seem to find they're way to every nook and corner and every horizontal space.
Really need to get organise.
Here are some neat ideas I found and beautiful interior with books.

living around books all day, everyday

a corner in the house for a quiet read

a workspace filled with books my idea of being constantly inspired

and finally if alls fail you can always make art
all images via today you inspired me
