I'm so excited that my illustrated recipe has been approved and published on They Draw and Cook website.

If you haven't heard or read about this website yet you should definitely have a look at it. There are some beautiful illustrations and delicious recipes.

Illustrated ceramics and colours in the kitchen

I really like this series of illustrated ceramics by Mark McGinnis!

And this colourful kitchen display by Doimo Cucine.

I have recently had a chat with a friend about Synesthesia, the ability to experience sensorial stimulations in associated and mixed ways. For example you could experience Colour as Sound, or Taste as Colour, and so on. Some people see the days of the week as colours.
The conversation got me thinking about colour in the kitchen and how it would have an effect on the taste of what we eat. So I dug up these photos of the Design Week in Milan.
Could wine taste better from a green glass or a pink one? Or would a meal benefit from being served on these illustrated ceramics?

Pinboard fun and cool hooks

For anyone looking to accessorize a small hallway or room here are two objects I really love.

Pinorama, by French designer Inga Sempé

This perforated metal grid has a cork panel at the back so you can  pin cards, notes and postcards on it.  You can add a mirror, a small shelf, and a pen holder. It would go really well in a hallway, or above a desk, or even a sink!

Hook by Danish designer Line Depping

Hook by Line Depping

Made of compressed ashwood, this minimalistic, original and multitasking hook is produced in several colours.

(By the way, I'm not sure why the yellow net bag had been left on the floor, but that's very cool too!)

PS: Some of Inga's work is now on show at the Design Museum Holon in Tel Aviv, as part of the collective exhibition 'GATHERING: from Domestic Craft to Comtemporary Process'.
