Jamie’s Italian in Westfield, Stratford City, London

Jamie Oliver’s  newest project, named Jamie’s Italian in Westfield, Stratford City (London, UK), was designed by Blacksheep. The place features a combination of finishes like the herringbone distressed oak timber floor, the black and white mosaic marble tiles, the rustic storage type furniture and the hanging meats & spices, there is definitely a tiny hint of Italian island life. However, when you look at the red leather diner type built-in sofas and the industrial lighting, you get the feeling of retro city buzz.  Hence the most suitable description to explain this interior is Italian Brunch Meets Market Lifestyle.

The most coveted place in London: Dabbous

Dabbous is a strikingly modern and stylish new restaurant/basement bar set over two floors located in the heart of  Fitzrovia, London. (39 Whitfield St, London)

Three days after its opening in February, London food critic Fay Maschler wrote a rave review about Dabbous and transformed it overnight from a new experimental, edgy restaurant to the most difficult place to get a reservation in London.

The raw industrial aesthetic of Dabbous was created by London design company Brinkworth.

Introducing Kitchen Wizards

I recently came across these beautifully designed kitchens and they immediately caught my attention. Later I learned that the masterminds behind these designs were two New Jersey cousins, branching out form their family owned business Brunellesschi Construction. I looked them up and found these elaborate designs I wanted to share with you. One thing I loved is how they made this real-life sized kitchens feel ample and royal with their  high quality materials. Just lovely. Enjoy. And go look for them if you´re in the New jersey Area.

Repeat after me: Attraversiamo

Ok,  so you have this predicament: You have just won 20 million and you have no idea what to do with your upcoming holidays. You stress out, you ponder. What to do? It’s the pressures and worries of having the world as your oyster. I can hear you. I can hear your troubles. Now, if you please, stop wasting my time and get yourself  down to Lake Como’s new resort Castadiva. 7 villas, 73 rooms with lake views and homes you could just die for. Grab your heels, your organza dresses, your pearls, your silk scarf and your Ray shades. It’s time to feel like Grace Kelly. ( or Cary Grant for that matter )

Ok, and just when you thought you just couldn’t stand MORE beauty, I’m here to tell you that all this… comes with George Clooney as your neighbour. So there.


Beautiful.Romantic.Poetic Bars and Cafes around the Globe

Life- savers on a winter’s day, perfect stage for a romantic rendez vous, lovely  for a chilled glass of chardonnay. The Small ancient bars, the little adorable Cafes, those hidden tables, small terraces or  tables set on an beautiful sidewalk. Its the places we go to when we’re heartbroken to write our never-to-be-delivered love letters, its the places we join our friends and celebrate life with our glasses held high, were we go to, to daydream about things to come over a perfect cup of cappuccino. Enjoy!







ps. And yes,  its the always lovely Jeremy Irons. He had me at Bonjour.


Let’s elope

And right now, this is were I would want to be. Santorini, Greece. Amazing Resort.  Not only breathtaking views, but wonderful, inviting, cozy yet sharp interiors.
