Speechless…

…The Speech Clinic in Lisbon translates as a place of learning and concentration.  Here,  sound and image are essential elements. It is an empty space filled with a feeling of depth and vibrations…a serene and secure environment for the client;  young or old.  This simple and beautiful project was developed by MMVarquitecto.

Pretty As a Picture…

Wine…

…best wine description ever..

For Belvedere Just Red:

Giddy pleasure, leaping grace, this red wine, blended from seven noble grape varietals, was crushed by the bare feet of 69 beautiful women in the wee light of dawn one misty October day. The nose is deeply perfumed with wild dewberries, Himalayan breeding musk and horehound candy, while the flavors, so titillating they may be only the disclosed in the Ecstatic Singing Mantra, will remain cloaked in silence until the bottle is uncorked. Sip delicately, sing with abandon. via

Yes, Please…

…the weather in Chicago has been ungodly for a few weeks now.  Signs of spring have been slow to arrive.  So what is one to do?  Dream of green, of course…yes, please!

Time Out…

…for tea-time hiking…Ban Shan Café brings the mountains down into Beijing.  Robert3 Design selected tactile materials like wood, paper, brick, and ceramic tiles to create a warm, earthy environment.  A perfect spot for us to sip a cup of tea and visit.  By the way, ‘shan’ means ‘mountain’ in Chinese.

Meow Parlour…

…for the little purrs.  Sonya Lee Architect designed NYC’s first cat cafe, Meow Parlour.  Here,  humans can enjoy a cup of joe while being reminded to play.  The kitties roam freely, while awaiting adoption.

The success of the space has led to nearly 100 adoptions, supported by their nonprofit, Kitty Kind, while embracing the idea that good design can shape how we interact with each other and animals.  Here, kitty, kitty!…
