Some of my favorite things..
Following a trip to Mexico, Super loco’s three founders set about creating Mexican restaurant & bars in Singapore unlike any other. Inspired by the delicious street food and fascinating culture experienced during their travels, they serve up authentic Mexican food with a strong focus on ambience and design.
Another Melbourne favorite. I’m in love, no really. This place in Melbourne, called the Kettle Black is breathtaking. Studio You Me who designed the place, came up with a perfect balanced mix of high ceilings, white marble, mint green chairs, plain wood furniture, concrete items, subtile green tiles, a little touch of gold, fresh plants and black details. Absolutely stunning!
Oh how I would love to visit South Africa once. Definitely high on my travel wish list. This happy looking Superette Cafe is based in Cape Town. It looks like a very friendly, relaxed and creative space to hang out.
The home of photographer Petra Bindel is a lovely mix of vintage, designer pieces and creative art. I love the subtil way of color use in this interior, like the different greens and light blue. It looks like a very light, friendly and peaceful home. Petra’s work is also a big inspiration by the way Check out her website.

The beautiful inspiring Bolia new collection 2015.
‘ The 2015 collection is the most vibrant and creative ever. It has its roots in the new Scandinavian design, but this year with more daring and surprising details. The style is Nordic, but some designs are with a splash of daring colors, some stained in different grey tones, some with golden and metallic details and even some are inspired by the silhouettes of Japanese designs, with minimalistic and sculptural shapes.’
Get inspired by this colorful, free spirit and eclectic home of Trish Bygott, Nathan Crotty and their family in Fremantle, WA.
Vino Veritas is a mix of two worlds, brought together and based in Oslo, Norway. On the one hand there is The Sanchez Vizcaino family, who started there family business in 1998, developing and offering organic wines. The Cortijo El Cura winery, which has since gained popularity, lies within the Sierra Nevada National Park, close to the Mediterranean city of Almería in Andalusia, Spain’s southernmost region.
On the other hand there is the Norwegian capital Oslo and it’s restaurant scene where they now host Vino Veritas, an eco gastrobar that combines the two distinct cultures of Norway and Spain. Vino Veritas specializes in sustainable organic wines and tapas, provided by the Sanchez winery. At first maybe a strange combination but with the help of design studio masquespacio it worked out very well.
Vino Veritas combines the clean light virtues of Norwegian interiors and the more traditional, vibrant and colorful materials found in Andalusia. The Spanish creative studio Masquespacio concentrated on highlighting the key qualities of both cultures.
With its soft, bright and uplifting interiors, Masquespacio’s design showcases natural wooden walls and ceilings painted in white, and beautiful solid oak flooring and furnishings, all quintessential components of a Norwegian aesthetic. These features are then juxtaposed against various Andalusian elements including old balcony railings, esparto grass lamps, baskets and blinds, clay tiles, plants and the bright-coloured green fabric adorning the chairs. The cushions, designed by Masquespacio, add an almost Moorish element to the space.

I love everything about the brand Heriott Grace. The beautiful products, the clean but stunning photography but most of all the story behind it.
Read about it HERE.
When Brittney Borjeson visited Sayulita, a small beach town in Mexico, she couldn’t imagine that her two-weeks-planned holiday would turn into something totally different. The stunning pacific and easygoing attitudes of the local artisans made her fell in love. And two years later she’s still there.
Last year she opened Evoke, where she sells Mexican art and crafts. A lot of the things are designed by Borjeson herself and made by local artisans.
Borjeson and her rescue poodle, Pepino moved into her dream home: a quiet two-bedroom house overlooking the ocean in the southern hillsides of Sayulita. While decorating her home, Borjeson let the nature inspire her, she’s opting to keep things true to their natural form. Be inspired by this simple but beautiful way of life. Life isn’t that complicated.
Borjeson: ‘White is simple, it isn’t a call to action or an emotional color, it’s just peaceful and serene, and lets nature do the talking’
