Working on a Saturday

I have two huge days at work ahead of me. A wedding, a breakfast, a birthday high tea with a complete reset for each. It's times like these I wish I worked in an office again instead of catering and events planning. Cue the daydream music ... perhaps an office like this one by Danish design firm Søren Rose Studio.

Let's make something beautiful together 

I was wandering through instagram when one turn then another brought me out at the home of the Jersey Ice Cream Company. Here's the thing. They do not actually make ice cream but their creations are just as delicious.

"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."

Casa Mollino

You have got to head over to All Items Loaded and check out the full story of this incredible home, Casa Mollino, in Turin. Here is a snippet:

A house should be a reflection of both the essential and what is really important to you. If that is the case, good luck with deciphering the home of Italian designer Carlo Mollino (1905-1973 Turin). The apartment located in a picturesque two-story 18th century villa on the Po River, was never his actual home. He simply never lived there. Mollino designed the rooms from 1960 through to 1968 as a lavish and intricate settings for one of his more obsessive photographic interests, female portraits to create an inexplicable, vast collection of erotica.
