Site of the week: Sarah Sloboda

No Comments inspiration, photographer, Site of the week

While I wandered in the net, I found the portfolio of Sarah Sloboda, a young photographer living in New York. What I like in her pictures, it’s the idea she tries to take, you can see she pays a lots of attention to details -must be her filmmaking background.

Blog of the week: Curious sofa

2 Comments General, inspiration, Vintage

In the special Chrismas Ideas issue of  Better Homes and Gardens, at page 96, there is an article about the owner and creative diretor of Curious Sofa, Debbie Dusenberry. Her way to decorate for Christmas intrigued me. It was very original, completely out of the box, I wanted to know a bit more, so I look up her blog, and oh my god it just blew my mind, I couldn’t take off my eyes from the pictures of  the Halloween decoration so brillant!  I wish I could see her antique shop for real. Check out her blog, it’s full with wonders

My Dawanda favorite thing

No Comments General

Did I ever mention that I’m mad about paper good and pattern? I’d just get crazy about it, I’ve a lot of time bought things that I would probably never used, just because I loved the pattern,the paper the originality of the object, even though it’s not meant for me.  This week, my peek is a shop and not an item, I wasn’t able to choose :)

Paper goods: Kitaken


Isn’t it lovely, and everything handmade. The little I know about the seller is that is that is name is Kenji and he  lives in Germany and he studied bookbinding, photography and printmaking in San Fransisco.
