Rainy Days and Chocolate Brownies


 This weekend was so quiet and relaxing, I think it was the rain, and the fact that I stayed home and cooked some amazing brownies. On Saturday I went to the mall to do some window shopping and drank a delicious green tea.
My outfit, every bit comfortable.
How did you spend your weekend?

A South African Penthouse





 This penthouse is a creation of Greg Truen and Ina Fourie of SAOTA (Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects) with interiors by Adam Court of OKHA Interiors. It's a three story penthouse located on the Sandhurst Towers, Sandton, Johannesburg.

With sober colors and a contemporary design, this penthouse has great character because of all the exotic artwork and sculptures.


"In effect, we created a wall-less 900m² penthouse, with a garden, that gives the impression of levitating above the city mass. We created a continual flow from zone to zone, utilising materials that emphasised the sense of space, transparency and reflection. We introduced organic textural/tactile elements through the use of timber and flamed granite to soften and add a counterpoint to the contemporary drama."

Disappearing Into Space






 Photos by: Jorg Behrmann

We took these photos some time ago. The outfit wasn't special, (white Zara top, old denim shorts and black Asos wedges.) but the place definitely was!!
The symmetry on the floor, the rhythm of the columns, the colors..I pass this place every day and I never feel the sensation of magnitude that it has. Is intense, as if the place was alive.
You may think I'm crazy, but sometimes when a space has it's own equilibrium I can feel the design as I feel the sun's heat or  a soft breeze at the beach..
Ok, I admit, today I feel inspired. Maybe it's the sunny day, but whatever it is, it makes me love even more my career and the capacity of designing spaces, objects, style.


Hope you enjoy this week!
