I always love reading about inspiring women, no matter what their profession might be. One of them is definitely Karen Mordechai, the founder of Sunday Suppers, the Brooklyn dinner series, shop and cookbook. Sunday Suppers is a food and design community based in South Williamsburg Brooklyn. Their focus is on seasonal fare and simple, thoughtful living.

I love that Karen’s approach to cooking is all about simplicity and warmth, being together as a family, sharing time, thoughts and good food.

4 beautiful tableware collections I’m loving lately

4 beautiful tableware collections I'm loving lately_house4play (11)
Although my collection of dishes (meaning glassware, plates, utensils etc.) is pretty small, I’ve started changing my habits.
One of the main reasons my dishware is not as elaborate, lies in the fact that I have always loved spending some extra cash on a piece of clothing or beautiful shoes, as oppose to kitchenware.
But things are starting to change a bit around here. It comes with growing older, I suppose.

Not that I give up on my clothes purchases (that will never happen, of course), but today I’ll share my favorite dishware finds as of late.

Take a look at the selection, these pieces of ceramics are truly beautiful.

Mediterranean villa for hedonists

Mediterranean villa for hedonists_house4play (1)
Last time when I was in my hometown Zadar, I met old friend of mine and we went to have a cup of coffee together. Among other things, we talked about a property he bought a while ago and where he had plans in building a family house.

It was a great site on the Adriatic coast, overlooking at the sea.

He talked a lot about his dreams regarding his future home and then he said one thing that sounded kind of funny: ‘I want it to look like that villa from the ”Raffaello” commercial.’

So while browsing the other day, I saw this villa that immediately made me think of my friend. It is Sardinera House, designed by Ramon Esteve.

White and sleek, exuding elegance and hedonism.

This post is for you, M.
