Herr Max Bakery. The Most beautiful cakes!

Today is my birthday! so let’s eat some virtual cake! Where? at Herr Max! One of the most beautiful bakeries that I got to know thru my dear friend Ulla from Berlin, this place is magical and not just that, the cakes are amazing as well. This special place is in Hamburg, Germany. The owner , Matthias, also the pastry chef, is the genious behind this gourgeos bakery along with his girlfriend Julia, who helps with the decor and design of the name, all the photos from the website are taken by her and as you can see they are spectacular. This place used to be a milk factory of some sort, so all the tiles are original and they fit perfectly with Herr Max’s style. It look like a cake!

Herr Max cakes, Hamburg GermanyHerr Max also has a great range of pastries, pies, cakes and muffins, you named it,
he makes it. Using only organic products, working from classic recipes, adding  his interpretation, thus making them his own unique creations. Since I’m into design I have to say it: Where did they find that light blue ceramic and glass sugar jar? I want one!

More amazing creations from Matthias and his great team at Herr Max. They also have classes, which I think it is a fabulous element that add to the magic of this place.

Papier a etres… Excusez-moi?

“Papier a etres” translate as “Paper to be”, beautiful things as you can see. Sophie Mouton-Perrat and Frédéric Guibrunet are a couple from Paris, I met her personally at the Paris Fair, they are amazing artists that have created an entire line of lighting sculptures just using paper. These are actually table lamps and you can buy them! Awesome news!

These dolls walking up the stairs are complete mind blowing! I would definitely have that many dolls in my entry way leading the visitors into the living room! Why not? Or maybe just be happy with one floating on a bookshelf, that would be a great touch for any space.

One of their latest inventions is this kid’s lamp, completely made out of paper, where there is a boy sitting in one end of a branch and a sweet rabbit is playing at the other end. This is a beyond cute, simple and just incredible imagination. Hope you like it.

Say Hello to winter with Donna Wilson cozy knits!

Goodbye to the scary celebrations, hello winter! Let’s get warm and cozy with Donna Wilson’ knits. I run into this great designer work at a fair in Paris, I love the color palette she uses and her humor, a nice combination to cheer us up in these cold months ahead.

Gaudi’s Tile Collage

Color combination is a hard topic, at least for me! There are many books on the subject, yet in spite of this, I always find  it hard to work with the color wheel.  I always try to go with my hunch when it comes to combining color, but to have good hunches you always need to be training your eye, looking for combinations everywhere you go;  in the buildings, the sidewalks, at the movies, in the food you eat, etc. Always keep your eyes cultured and well trained. I happened to visit Park Guell in Barcelona few days ago and beside its amazing architecture and organic structure I started to look into Gaudi’s famous collage work, made by little pieces of  beautiful  hand-painted tiles. Seems atrocious that he picked beautiful hand painted tiles and broke them into pieces, only  to rework them into a beautiful mosaic, but maybe the tiles were broken already and he just put them to a great use. Whatever the tecnic he used, it’s an amazing work of color combination and it is here for you to enjoy, a little bit of it, if you happen NOT to be in Barcelona. Use some of the colors that you see combined here and put them together in a room or in a mood board if you like. Here are some pictures to keep those eyes in line!

one of a kind ceramic plate collection

not quite! these ceramic plates collection are from Berlin based firm Kuehn Keramic. I ran into this amazing work at Maison & Object fair in Paris. Pretty inspiring work. Great pieces that can be amazing wedding presents I think, I am really considering having some of these pieces at “From with Love“. They also have a boutique in Berlin if it happens that you live there or you are visiting.

Yummy bottles

Wouldn’t be nice to  make some fresh lemonade, horchata and watermelon juice, then filling some of these yummy colored bottles from Vitrocolor. Taking them outside to the patio and share a great Sunday lunch with your friends. That would be a beautiful table, with definitely white linens and fancy picnic cutlery like these ones all in plastic, hard to believe! to have a deluxe picnic experience.

Sounds like a great relaxing for the eye Sunday in warm California or even here in hot Barcelona.

Time oh so fragile…

These amazing ceramic clocks from Maria Kristofersson a swedish artist that I found out about in a collective artist gallery shop in Stockholm. Can’t get over the little white bird, a very surreal version of the coo coo clock we are all so used to see. Love it!
Definitely original and a must to include in my boutique.

Color my alphabet

Who doesn’t love letters!! I love them all! in any shape and size, but these ones from fabrics are absolutely fabulous I have to admit. They are also from a lovely store in Sweden called Broarne.
Another finding from my trip to Scandinavia. Hope it makes you smile!
