Big feet

The reclining Buddha in Wat Pho (Bangkok) is impressive,  but the details on his feet is what amazed me the most.

Kitchen gallery wall – Reveal

As I mentioned the other day, I am a wall art hoarder! And with an open-space and therefore limited amount of walls in the house, I have to be creative when decorating the space.

In the kitchen, I opted for a small gallery wall between the two french windows, and lined up with our kitchen island.

I  wanted to set the stage by sticking to a kitchen/food theme on this wall. Luckily, I already had most items and only had to curate one piece in order to balance the layout.

I will do a post about the entire kitchen but for now I will just go into the details of the wall itself.

We made the shelf ourselves with simple wood cut to exact dimensions, brackets and white glossy paint, all found at B&Q.

The succulents are from Columbia Road Flower Market and their pots are old jam and candles pots. I got the mint and rosemary at Marks & Spencer and the planter is from Ikea.

The pig print comes from a butcher shop in Italy, and the frame is from Habitat. Also, please make sure you go to Antica Marcelleria Falorni, in Greve in Chianti, if you are visiting Tuscany, all their products are delicious!

Staying with the Italian theme, we bought this cat sign on the Amalfi Coast, where ceramic art is a speciality. It is also good to note that our cat’s food bowl is right by this wall, so it all ties together! 🙂

The cutlery print I didn’t have originally. I found it on King & McGaw a great site if you are looking for wall art! This is Row of Cutlery by Bridget Davies and it was framed by King & McGaw.

The clock is a finding from my husband, it’s by Karlsson and we just loved how simple yet different it was with the copper accent and the black face.

Finally, the Cafe du Bresil print was a gift from my parents a few Christmas ago. I am not sure where they got it from but it is a real vintage print. The frame is from Habitat.

Hope you like this little corner of my kitchen!

Monday feeling

Obviously my suffering is nothing in comparison with the Irish famine illustrate by this sculpture by Robert Shure, in Boston, but still… Monday is painful…

I lost my glove?

I love little pieces of art like this one. I could have also name this one “I lost my comb!”

Come to me

Sometime the perfect picture comes to you. That guy walking alone toward the only statue with its arms open is one of them.
