Harvest JUICERY…

…oh my goodness…and I am speaking of  yummy goodness!  I cannot tell you how many times I have held my nose while choking down freshly squeezed concoctions.  Harvest JUICERY has snuffed-out my juicing misery with delicious cold-pressed juice delights.  What is cold-pressed juice, you say? It’s juice that’s hydraulically pressed…a fancy press that does not generate any heat, keeping the temperature of the product without oxidizing; and, then pressed with thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the juice. The juice contains two to three pounds of vegetables in every bottle…

of course a cool venue is needed to ‘get the juices flowing’…by Chicago-based design firm, blochaus

the packaging is simple and honest…just like the product…

 

Krissy Sciarra, owner and chef, refers to her business as “a 21st century milkman that really does your body good.”  Harvest JUICERY delivers in the Chicago area…and, great news…they will ship out of state.  Cheers!

Let’s Go Into Town…

…I’ll be happy to say it…in my opinion, Pitsou Kedem Architect always gets it right.  Tel Aviv Townhouse 4 consists of mainly earthy and neutral tones that are expressed through both the structure and the furniture…with a pleasant dash of color.  I find this minimalist residence to be hypnotic…I want to experience every clean line…and the landscaping is simple yet magical.  This residence is situated behind a gated entrance, and is tucked between two unassuming apartment complexes…

Spectacular…

…I must admit, I’m a jaw dropper…I wear my joy and delight on my sleeve.  Below are three spectacular spaces that make my jaw hit the floor!…

Koro House

Wooden slats add a sculptural ceiling and cast shadows like a sundial across the central living room of this hexagonal home, Koro, located in Toyota, Japan, by  Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates.  The sculptural ceiling decoration is made from timber battens that line the rafters, creating an ever-changing pattern of light and shadow on the walls as the sun moves across the sky. Truly beautiful…instantly turns a home into a gallery, yes?

Dior’s Haute Couture Show

The Dior show, Paris, took place in a simple cylindrical white pavilion, located among foliage in the gardens of Musée Rodin. Designed by creative director, Raf Simons, white orchids with pink centres covered the walls. Stunning.

BIG Maze

BIG, the firm led by architect Bjarke Ingels, developed the form of this maze by combining styles of mazes throughout history, from ancient Greek labyrinths to European hedge mazes and modern American corn mazes. Brilliant! The BIG Maze opened to the public at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on Friday and will remain in place until 1 September. It will be followed up by a wider exhibition of BIG’s work, which will open in January 2015.

Fog…

…alright, Mother Nature, Chicago had an unusually brutal winter…may we please have an agreeable summer?  Chicago has been covered by creeping fog coming off Lake Michigan for the past several days.  It reminded me of a Kōnosu City, Saitama Prefecuture, Japan, residence…Distance of Fog by StudioGreenBlue.  Actually, fog never looked so alluring…

the project incorporates metal screens to provide sense of privacy within the open-plan space…

but the sun should be peeking through by noon…

Lost in Time at Casa No Tempo…

…I’m lost in time at Casa No Tempo…and I may never return…an hour south of Lisbon, I find pristine landscapes filled with oak and olive trees.  Casa No Tempo is a family farm which has been in the same family for generations…the home has undergone a recent renovation by the architect Manuel Aires Matus.

Horesback riding…

swimming in a pool that is spread with a sand colored plaster right up to the edge…

visiting in comfort and luxury…

breaking bread with friends and family…

reading by the fire in a cozy nook…

views from rooms with massive windows of cork trees, pastures, wild fields, dams, ponds, and streams…I’m spending the night…

…and beginning all over again.  It’s ok, no need to look for me…

Cathy Azria…

…it is June…and there is no need for blazing fires to keep us warm…we do, however, have an opportunity to turn our fireplaces into works of art.

Artist/designer Cathy Azria was born in Tunisia and lived in France until she came to London in 1980 to study sculpture. Living in London ever since and working for private clients, architects and designers, she designs sculptural installations for interiors. She draws her inspiration from natural materials, organic forms, the interplay of light and a conviction that what is functional in the home can also be beautiful. Fire is the area interesting her most at the moment. She began to design fire installations when her search for a contemporary fireplace for her own home proved fruitless. Since then, she has been exploring the whole concept of fire and light, using metal both for its sculptural potential and for the way that it responds to heat, transforming into glowing forms.

Cathy never has and will never, mass-produce. She works by establishing a train of thought, then developing and refining it in response to each client’s requirements. Every piece is therefore unique, signed and numbered by its creator.
