Beautiful Chocolate

Chocolate and I are lovers. I like mine dark and depending on my mood with a little raspberry, sea salt, mint or coconut. Below are some beautiful chocolate packaging designs so you can indulge your eyes, at least.

Stunning Houseboat in Seattle

I must admit I am a bit jealous of Sue, the owner of this Seattle houseboat. The idea of living near water in a cozy home really sounds good to me. It gets better for me with the fact that this houseboat isn't in a tropical place as I couldn't live in constant hot weather. I think Josh and I would be very happy in this home, except it is not where God wants us right now.

Baked Avocado Fries

Avocado pretty much makes every meal better, and who doesn't like fries? So whoever invented these, is genius. 

Recipe after the jump.

Made a Mano: Uniting the Traditional and the Modern

I love this tiling from Made a Mano, a Danish/Italian company whose goal is "“to create a collection of tiles, countertops and sinks, combining ancient traditional handicraft with modern techniques. Revealing a sure sense of beauty and style.”

All products are worked entirely by hand in Sicily, Italy.

Robert Doisneau - Paris 1940s, 1950s

Robert Doisneau was one of the first photographers I came to know of. The photograph above was framed in in the TV room of the home where I grew up. These photographs really capture some amazing moments of the old times in Paris.  

"I like people for their weaknesses and faults. I get on well with ordinary people. We talk. We start with the weather, and little by little we get to the important things. When I photograph them it is not as if I were examining them with a magnifying class, like a cold and scientific observer. It's very brotherly. And it's better, isn't it, to shed some light on those people who are never in the limelight". 
- Robert Doisneau

Piano Stairs - The Fun Theory

"Can we get more people to choose the stairs by making it fun to do? Check out the 'Piano Stairs', part of Volkswagen's Fun Theory campaign. 
We believe that the easiest way to change people's behaviour for the better is by making it fun to do. We call it The Fun Theory."

The Fun Theory is a site dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better. Check it out! They've got some very fun and interesting videos.

A colorful creative force of an apartment in Nimes, France

Myriam and her family moved from Paris to Nimes, France so they could adopt a life of peace and sweetness with this more spacious apartment with high ceilings and large windows. I love the cozy and cheerful feel of Myriam's artistic skills. 

All tapestries from the walls were removed to give a rough feel, which is contrasted by charming floral fabrics on these Scandinavian chairs. 

A joyous yellow touch for the girl's room.
