Yoyo Ceramics

The clever folks at Yoyo Ceramics (i.e. Helen Johannessen) not only created these lovely ceramic tupperware containers and egg saucer – but also a rewritable ceramic notepad.  Brilliant.

Sadly the notepad is currently sold out – but I’ll give you a heads up when it is back in stock.

Man Cave

I like all the wood and stone combined with soft touches in this east London man cave.  Also – that is the craziest bathroom I’ve ever seen.  Can you imagine how cold you’d be getting out of that tub!?

It’s very Abigail Ahern – maybe her work?

I came across this bit of Croatian paradise while flipping through Architectural Digest (which usually leaves me cold).  I can’t decide what’s more impressive – the jaw-dropping setting or the house itself?  The redesign of this 15th century stone cottage (which was originally crumbling to pieces) was done by New York architect Steven Harris and interiors and landscape designer Rees Roberts.  It was clearly a labour of love, as everything had to be carried up the 156 steps by hand.

If only I had the money to invest in a Croatian hideaway 10 years ago!
