Throwback Thursday - Sono

In Throwback Thursday I will post some pictures from shops, hotels, places and other things I like or  visited in the past and that I never got the chance to post here about.  This week I present you SONO. A beautiful shop situated in Kakuozan, in Nagoya, Japan.
 Kakuozan is definitely one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Nagoya. You will understand way after a couple of throwback Thursday's posts ;-)!  This shop sells beautiful kitchen utensils and has a lovely ceramics, glass and cutlery collection.  Love the decoration and the way they how everything is displayed.  Everything perfectly arranged. Oh lord, I do miss this Japanese precision!

Kungsholmen apartment

This beautiful apartment in the city center of Stockholm was just on the market a few weeks ago. But just like the most apartments in downtown Stockholm was sold like hotcakes.
It's only 38m2 but it doesn't feel like that at all. And I breath space here. Beautifully arranged, great taste of style and definitely an interior eye candy. Don't you agree?

Where to stay when...In Stockholm

I'm staring a new rubric called "Where to stay when...". My intention is just to show the different kind of hotels you can choose from. And a good night of sleep in a good bed is what everyone wants after wandering a whole day in a new city, right? 
As new resident from Stockholm I will definitely post some of the nicest hotels in town. And today I present you...The Miss Clara Hotel.

Today's inspiration

As the most of you know I moved to Stockholm about a month ago and next week I will finally move into my new apartment. I'm looking so forward to do it *smile of happiness*.
In the mean while I spend hours imagining how I'm gonna decorate the new apartment. Today's search lead to my future desk office. Don't you love the HAY hand holding the lamp? Great idea from Elisabeth the blogger behind PURE INTERIOR.
More pictures of the great styling she did for the NIB (Norwegian interior bloggers) Home office here.
Have a nice day!

Essential Eames by Herman Miller

Charles and Ray Eames are statement in the design world. Two of the most inspiring and creative designers I truly admire.
A year ago I was in Singapore and very lucky to be able to attend The Essential Eames by Herman Miller exposition in the  Art Science Museum, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. I've never got the chance to blog about it but I still wanted to share a bit of my impressions and some of the pictures I took. Such beautiful work they left behind.

My love for Eames products started when i felt in love for the RAR rock chair but until now I didn't found the house or the perfect corner to place it. 
When we, two years ago moved to Japan for a two year assignment I grab my chance and a week before we left I order two DAW chairs at Designerchairs24.
They arrived just two days before our flight, so we carried them with us and by plane from Amsterdam to Japan. I always have to laugh when I think about this story. I have to say they were the first furniture items we got in our new apartment. At least we could seat *smile*. 
Now we just moved back to Europe and this time to Stockholm. We are living even a bit smaller than in Japan (how is that possible?! Yes it is) so during the first year we won't be able to have our DAW
 chairs here so I've been thinking about buying two DSW chairs.

While pondering I saw that Designerchairs24 were offering two DSW chairs to bloggers who would write a post on Eames.  So here it is.
Sometimes you don't have to say much, because images already say enough, right? As Charles Eames once said: "Yes. But did you get pictures?"
