Another week and the travel bug could not be higher than it is over at the office today. Friends and family are already traveling and having their vacation. We have a few more weeks until we get to jump on the plane and fly to our beloved Scandinavia.

So for number two of our Places To Eat & Drink we had to include one of the latest projects of Scandinavian based Laajisto and her team. After all, the chances of us actually visiting Helsinki is much higher than finding our way to The Proud Archivist somewhere in the streets of London.

Happy indulging!


On The Wall: Artist Terence Hannum

Avilyn | Cassette Tape and Hold Tape on Paper | 14″ x 14″ | 2013

Terence Hannum reached out to us after seeing last weeks ‘On The Wall’ post with Arjan. Not only were we happy that someone read our post, but also that they wished to be part of the series. I straight away clicked the link to Terence website and was greeted with a talented and interesting artist.

Alike anything we have shown here, Terence uses cassette tapes as his material for his visual arts. The cassette tapes are a reflection of his second talent and passion: music. By combining the two art forms he has created something meaningful and powerful for him whilst providing us with interesting pieces to hang on the wall. They are pretty cool right?


Books On Coffee Table No.21

Happy Sunday and the start of summer! Probably not the most ideal – summer feel -coffee table books, but I couldn’t help but to get inspired by NUR’s coffee tables this morning (found via Nordic days). Lovely, neat and graphical objects! They would nicely decorate a space where  heavy coffee tables could not fit the design scheme. And to top it off I would style them with some good looking book covers.

Today’s leisure is -as usual – feeding the soul with some good looking coffee table books….Happy Sunday!
