After the Maison Plainex in Paris, another masterpiece of Le Corbusier is on sale.
Villa Stein-de-Monzie, "Les Terrasses", was built in 1927 in Vaucresson, near Paris. The house
was designed by Le Corbusier for Gabrielle Colaco-Osorio de Monzie and Sarah Stein, sister-in-law of Gertrude Stein.

Behind Studio You Me there are two creative women (and friend): Kestie Lane and Hana Hakim. Their works portfolio extend beyond interior projects (we saw Brighton Residence yesterday) to graphic, event, urban, furniture and product design.
So this time, I want to highlight the brand identity that the studio designed for The Drifter Table.
I find it so elegant and cool, isn't it?
"The Drifter Table is a bevy of three like-minded hardworking chefs who are taking the pop up restaurant movement in Melbourne by storm.
Studio You Me wanted create a brand that was dynamic and edgy but also have a sense of establishment to mark it’s longevity and to set them well apart from the norm.
The brand is designed using an elegant stone backdrop and a cool custom crafted font, the iconic compass design gives the brand its strength and a reference to pioneering new culinary territories.
Like the three collaborators, the brand has a cheeky side reflecting the personalities of the chefs, with quirky anecdotes and phrases on the matchbooks and menus to get the dinner conversation started."
Life is too short to design anything less than extraordinary.

The four-leaf clover bracelet was an idea of Luca Caprai and was designed to communicate Cruciani to a young and increasingly well informed and demanding public. Lace may seem distant from modern day tastes but it in fact encapsulates many elements of our culture and traditions.
The Cruciani four-leaf clover bracelet phenomenon exploded in August 2011, when there were endless queues at the Cruciani boutique in Forte dei Marmi, day and night, to get the summer bracelet in one or more colours. This boom rapidly spread throughout the whole of Italy and beyond.
Other five diy ideas for Halloween (these are so funny!)(and here and here, you'll find my previous post about Halloween 2013):
01: Halloween Googly Eyed Cupcake Toppers from Valley and Co. Lifestyle | 02: Dangling Eyeballs from Paging Supermom | 03: DIY Baby Octopus Costume from Mermag | 04: Haunted houses for Halloween treats from Mr. Printables | 05: Spinning paper toy from Minieco.co.uk

I sketched this little ghost and I uploaded two printables on dropbox : Boo is a A4 page single printable sketch (use it for cards or bottle labels) and BooLabels is a A4 page with 8 little printable labels (right for treats). You can freely download them here! (if you have problems downloading them, write me and I will help you).

|The lighting fixture is an X + L design.|
From Remodelista, the amazing apartment of Irene Hoofs of Bloesem in the Jordaan area of Amsterdam. I dream a space like this! The renovation of the loft was designed by the Dutch duo X + L (Xander Vervoort + Leon Van Boxtel).

I'm using Gimp 2.8 - the free GNU Image Manipulation Program - to edit my photos. I'd never had the time to explore filters before - I usually love untouched or quite untouched images - but I did it yesterday with these origami butterfly series. The shots weren't all well focused but I was liking them the same that's why I thought of filters - to save some pics getting something different;-) I wrote the name of the filter I used under each picture.
