I have a thing for the Marrakech living, not that I at all practice the look full on in my work or in my own home, but I like to mix the foreign mystery with the modern northern lifestyle. I believe it gives some warmth to the interior spaces and a more personal and individual look to any indoor or outdoor living area. Anyway the fascination of the Riad is endless. I have found some goodies from around the world that I would love to visit. What do you think…

Ikea has done it again! They just came out with a new collection “Svartan” which is a co-lab with the Swedish designer Martin Bergström. He is inspired by the indian culture, which is really colorful yet faded, and decided to make a collection only in black, white and grey colors. I love it and the fact that it is so cool and affordable for anyone is even better.
Designer: Martin Bergström
In this spectacular new museum you get it all. It is worth a visit and then some. The famous and genius architects BIG Group transformed an old dry dock into a spectacular museum. The museum has existed for 98 years and was located on the Castle Kronborg in Elsinore, Denmark. On October 5th it was reborn in every aspect. Not only has the Maritime Museum of Denmark moved to this new fantastic location, but the actual story they tell in the exhibition is exciting. They display the items in an interesting way, you are allowed to touch and feel and see. Many games are situated around the Museum and you can even tattoo yourself with authentic tattoos from old times. Even kids love this place!
New York Times just rated the Museum as a must see place in the world, and they just won the Archdaily award: “Building of the year”
Go and visit if you ever go to Denmark, you will not be disapointed!
Visit: Maritime Museum of Denmark, Ny kronborgvej 1, 3000 Helsingor, Denmark

Helloooooo, I want to live in this lolly land! This boutique is amazingly well done and really speaks to my sweet tooth. When entering a wonderland like this I want to stay forever and just indulge in pastry and cakes. I love it and do not even care to think about weight issues here!
The boutique Cioccolato is a pastry boutique specialized in custom deserts for special events and is situated in Monterrey, Mexico. Just saying the word Cioccolato makes my mouth water. The design team behind this playful and mindblowing project is SAVVY Studio who is a multi-disciplinary studio dedicated to develop brand experiences that generate emotional links between clients and their audience. I believe they have indeed succeeded on this project……….Yummy
