...something completely different are these PeacePots by Maarten den Hartog and Pamela Musch, from the Dutch design studio DenHartogMusch. The idea behind PeacePot is to support the mission of the WorldPeaceFlame-organization ..."it aims to inspire people everywhere that the individual plays a crucial role in creating peace, at every level."...and so these PeacePots can help you spread the story of the World Peace Flame in every interior! If you are interested in buying a PeacePot it's best to contact the organization, info about prices are right here...{Thanks Pamela for telling me about this great initiative}

Piet Hein Eek and more...

During my stay in Amsterdam last month I made many images at the Frozen Fountain, which I like to share with you today, because for me it was so nice to see some of the furniture and accessories I have written before on Bloesem in real, like the clay furniture by Maarten Baas, I really liked the clay bookshelf and of course the knitted poufs by Christien Meindertsma. The other items are: color plaids by Scholten & Baijings and the amazing Heatwave by Joris Laarman.
And I enjoyed seeing the table, cabinet and chairs by Piet Hein Eek...although this Scrapwood collection is not very new, (the beautiful new collection you can find right here) it still is my favorite, it looks so simple and easy to put together some  scrapwood ad turn it into a table, but I'm sure it's not...and I love these chairs, I can clearly picture them on white floor, with a white table and some grass green accessories... Pietheineek
Reading Piet Hein Eek's website is always fun, because unlike many other great designers, he talks about his developments and projects in a very friendly and modest manner...here you can read the latest news and don't forget to click on the House project in the Dordogne.

I'm sorry to say but I never really noticed the fresh and colorful pillows from Mozi until last weekend...Camilla and Olivia Tipler always bring such beautiful contemporary patterns and although it's winter in Australia right now, these pillows will bring you a warm and summer feel...and I just found out about their brand new selection of organic teas? Of course, Mozi knows how to pack an English breakfast tea or my favorite, the morrocan mint tea.

Lisa Neimeth

When Lisa sent me some images of her beautiful ceramic plates and table ware I knew I was going to start this week with telling you a bit more about her...Lisa Neimeth was born in 1963 in New York City but moved to SF in 1994...art and cermaics were always a big part of her life, but when her children were born she was able to focus more on her work and do art full time...
Lisa hopes one day she and her family can move a bit more towards Northern New Mexico and the areas around Abiquiu, because the traditions and culture of clay that exist there are very inspiring and help her to integrate the natural world and the objects that inhabit it, into her work...a little while ago Apartment Theraphy did a nice house tour with Lisa...also some great images from her studio...click here to see the whole tableware collection!
