Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013

After we visited last year’s Fuorisalone in Milan, we absolutely wanted to see this year’s official Salone Internazionale del Mobile. Following a press invitation, we drove to Italy last Thursday, curious to see this massive furniture trade fair. The fairgrounds and amount of halls and stands are truly impressive. We saw a lot of inspiring things even though I have to say that the Fuorisaloni are more fun and interesting than the fair itself. Last year we saw lots of small and big design and especially in the Tortona area we discovered a lot of unusual things. Obviously the official...

Happy Easter

The last weeks have been difficult ones. Our dog had a discus hernia which lead to surgery of which she is now recovering.

Or hanging in...

It’s that time of the year where I feel that I need to include more fruit and veggies into my diet than cheese and roasts. Since one week, I am trying to add fruit or greens to any meal I am creating and some things really turn out yummy. I also created a ‘Healthy Food’ board on Pinterest that hopefully gives me some inspiration. If you have recipes of tasty healthy dishes to share, send them over! What...

The Week

This week a lot of different things were on my mind. Things that are work-related, about friendships that come and go, about life in general. And that I need a vacation was a very present thought too. A friend introduced me to this cool word cloud creator that I used to summarise what kept my mind busy this week. It’s also a nice tool to spice up business presentations or create personalised cards. Be prepared to see a weekly word cloud popping up on this blog. Word cloud through Wordle.  ...
