Throwback Thursday - Milla Boutique Oslo

Begin this year I was in Oslo with my dear friend and fellow blogger Natascha from the blog Mocca and Me. Being in Oslo and loving interior design as we do, a visit to the House of Oslo was mandatory! Here some snapshots from the Milla Boutique and some styling made by Camila Berntsen, the owner from Milla Boutique.
Definitely worth the visit!

Home details

Outside the days are getting colder and colder, so time to get warm inside :-)! Flowers and candles create such a nice atmosphere around the house. So this is a sneak peak from how ours look like just now.
To complete this scenery I grabbed some tea, a blanket and a good book. Isn't a great way to start the weekend?
Have a good one!

Where to stay when in ... The Algarve

Bela vista Hotel & Spa

The winter is on it's way and even I do love Christmas, right now I'm longing for the three S's: Summer, Sun and Sea.  So why not dream a bit and make plans for next year holidays in Portugal? 
One of the places that it's definitely a visit worth, is the Bela Vista Hotel & Spa. A great hotel and spa situated in Portimão, at Praia da Rocha and just about a 45 minute car drive from Faro's airport.
The hotel was a family house in the 19th century and a few years ago has been redecorated by Graça Viterbo, one of Portugal's most known interior designers. 
The hotel is an immaculately preserved resort hotel where you can find relaxation and privacy surrounded by vibrant colours. Basking on the recliners around the very fine pool, or lounging on a beach with private access, this is the perfect place to while the time away. The murmur of the waves of the nearby ocean is a constant companion.
I was there last year in June and I can tell you, definitely the place to start when willing to discover this jewel we call Algarve - the region where I was born and raised. And don't forget to eat. We have have delicious food in Portugal!!!

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 why 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!
