This rainy and windy weather doesn’t seem to want to stop. June seems months away, so I thought I’d recollect the things that brighten my day to shun this dismal grey.

In the top picture, the interior and the way the family is gathered around the table seems bright and warming. The photo depicts the family of Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti in Casa Via Dezza as seen on Yatzer.

Flowers always brighten my mood. The above picture is from a favorite blog by Miss Moss.


Thinking of (and of course being in) Paris always makes me happy! I like this map drawn by American illustrator Josie Portillo.

Last but not least: I love big studio spaces especially with huge vaulted windows providing lots of light and fantastic rooftop views like in this studio of this woman artist Gisèle d’Ailly van Waterschoot van der Gracht. I really like the space and all sorts of working material and inspirations laying around, not to mention the old furniture combined with her work.
