Gourmet Traveller23. July 2014
Found this site today that has loads and loads of flipping delicious looking recipes on it.They are even categorised, so if you are in the mood for say, dumplings or potatoes, vanilla flavoured things, Japanese, pasta or say, cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, then you’re all sorted. You just click into the different sections and off you go.
Speaking of cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, I will literally pay someone cash-money to make these sons-of-bitches for me and then bring them to my house – you will also be expected to feed them to me, a thank you.
Anyway, if you’re stumped for what to make for supper or more importantly dessert, check this site out, I seriously doubt you’re going to regret it.
Jersey Ice Cream Company18. July 2014
Came across this site called Jersey Ice Cream Company, who do the complete opposite of what their name suggests (already I like them). Now at first glance you would think that I was going to show you drool-worthy pictures of creamy, creamy ice-cream, but instead I’m going to show you the cool transformations that the 2 ladies who run this interior design studio have come up with. Yip, they take boring looking rooms and make them into something special and pretty damn awesome, according to me. Below are before and after shots of some of the spaces they have worked on. Love all the reclaimed wood and the idea of keeping some of the original textures in the room, like the exposed wallpaper, flooring, concrete walls and ceiling beams. Also love the black and white kitchen, if you’re looking for design inspiration for a non-traditional revamp, you’re going to like this post, but if beige tiles, off-white walls and anything tinged Tuscan is your thing, then rather give it a skip-a-roo.
- We are Tara Mangini and Percy Bright, a full-service interior design duo who love to travel wherever there’s a space begging for a transformation. Every space holds its own unique opportunities. Old houses are filled with secrets, little clues that lie hidden for years. The only thing better than rescuing them from layers of wallpaper, paint, and carpet is weaving those stories together with fresh ideas, creating spaces that feel new but instantly familiar. Though empty white boxes lack similar stories, they carry with them a certain sense of freedom. When a history doesn’t already exist, it’s ours to create.”
Joanna Concejo08. July 2014
Joanna Concejo is a Polish illustrator who creates such imaginative and whimsical drawings. Her characters are playful and a little off-centre and I really like her delicate style of drawing.
- Joanna Concejo is a children’s book illustrator whose work is published in France, Italy and Spain. She’s originally from Poland, but currently lives in France where she spends her time drawing and bringing up her children.
My main influences have come from childhood. I was brought up in the countryside with a grandmother who told stories in such a marvelous way that I’ve always had the desire to make things up. I was also surrounded by women who worked with their hands, whether embroidery or knitting, and I had an aunt who loved drawing.
Paintings by Alex Kanevsky25. June 2014
Russian-born Alex Kanevsky is a figurative painter who creates such beautiful pieces out of almost moving paintbrush strokes. He explains his technique best in these few lines -
-People, whom I paint, are never still. They want to move, they are built for motion. It is actually painful for models to be still longer than 20 minutes. I like them, I find them endlessly fascinating, how they are built, the way they grow and shrink over time, how they move, act, express their emotions, etc. So I want to paint them the way they are, and to me they are defined by their motion. A brick is defined by its shape and people are defined by their motion.
Irana Douer18. June 2014
These illustrations are by artist Irana Douer. They remind me of the movie The Ring a bit. They’re dark and a bit obscure, but I think they’re very cool, I think they would make such rad tattoos.
-Irana Douer is an Argentinian artist based in Buenos Aires. Since 2005, Irana has been running Ruby Mag, a magazine featuring the work of artists from different countries, which led her to the publication of the Ruby Book by Gestalten in 2011. Recently, she has also translated the magazine concept into a gallery and shop space where she curates the work of like-minded artists and designers.
