 Θυμάστε το κουκλόσπιτο της Μόνικα, από την σειρά Friends?
MONICA:(looking at the dollhouse) Oh, my Gosh! hardwood floors!
Κάτι τέτοιο μου θύμισε αυτό το αρχοντικό, με τα ταβάνια στα σύννεφα, τις τεράστιες μπαλκονόπορτες, τα εθνικ μοτίβα στα χαλιά, τις κλασσικές ταπετσαρίες... H ιδιοκτήτριά του είναι η interior designer Ida Zimmer Mellentin, που λατρεύει τα υφάσματα και θεωρεί ότι γεμίζουν και στολίζουν ένα σπίτι, αλλά  μπορούν και να το μεταμορφώσουν άμεσα, αλλάζοντας μόνο τα βασικά, πχ μαξιλάρες, ριχτάρια, κουρτίνες, χαλιά.  Το συγκεκριμένο σπίτι, είναι πραγματικά όμορφο γιατί βασίζεται στην απλότητα. Δεν είναι ούτε φορτωμένο, ούτε επιτηδευμένο και σίγουρα έχει τον αέρα του επαγγελματία σε κάθε του γωνιά, καθώς έχει ξεκάθαρη προσωπικότητα, πέρα από μόδες και τάσεις.

Τhis beautiful mansion belongs to interior designer Ida Zimmer Mellentin.Elegant and ethnic came together and made this awesome mansion that is a look alike of Monica Geller's dollhouse on FRIENDS; remember? ''MONICA:(looking at the dollhouse) Oh, my Gosh! hardwood floors!''
Velvet pillows, rugs with ethnic patterns, elegant wallpapers, soft colors on the walls. So clean cut, so bright, classic and yet original.

Think Big.... ok, now THINK PIG! That's the idea!

Dear non Greek readers; it is so sad that you cannot understand the writing on some of these mugs, plates etc. Two lovely girls, one a photographer and the other a designer, made this awesome minimal work, based on Greek humor. So, you may not understand a word, but basically you are reading a variety of expressions from Greek slang, or Greek swear words, or just funny expressions! I loved the idea, basically because the whole concept IS just a clever idea! You see life doesn't need much... just a good sense of humor!

Υπέροχες δημιουργίες από τα κορίτσια του Think Pig! Γιατί είναι να μη σου μπει η ιδέα... Αν είναι καλή κάνεις επιτυχία, όπως όλα τα φοβερά χρηστικά και διακοσμητικά αντικείμενα των Think pig!

Hey, i am back

 Hello guys! How are you? Still out there? I am back after... at least 4 months of absence. That's the beauty with personal blogging! You don't HAVE to post anything if you don't feel like it. Donkey and the Carrot, was never one of my ''MUST DO'' things. It was and still is one of the ''I LIKE TO DO'' things. Pleasure. Only. Hope you feel the same way with your passion. Pleasure only. No obligations. No greed for the ''stats'' or the ''clicks'' or the ''likes''. If you start to live your life through social media, i believe you lose the real purpose of the whole thing. And this whole blogging thing, for me, was always and still is: Μy passion. My beautiful peaceful place. My kind of art.
So... another beautiful house somewhere in Sweden. Nothing fancy but still lovely.
