So obsessed with these photos! And for these dresses! Created by designers Silvia Chiteala and Laura Cazacu, Chatronette is a brand based in Romania, that makes beautiful dresses, different, creative, with lots of embroidery, flowers, tulle and colors. Frida Kahlo and art nouveau are just some of the many inspirations of the designers. With an amazing art direction, the pictures have a concept inspired by Sophia Coppola, Tim Burton and Frida Kahlo, and are filled with dream, magic and surrealism.

“We create these imaginary worlds, because the world needs stories and see ourselves as Visual storytellers.” – they say.

I love everything in this picture, the color palette, the gradients, the scenery, the balloons … But I would really like to see the size of the bench that is underneath the dress model. 🙂

rustic restaurant with charming decoration

With these days of sunshine and dry weather that Portugal provides in mid-winter (love you Portugal by the way), I want to be on the street, walking, feel the scent of the sea and of wood-fired coming out of the houses. And it was on a lovely day like this I discovered the House Of Wonders, a charming and colorful vegan Bistro in Cascais. Outside´s bistro thas already called attention, with wooden benchs, patina and many flowers on top. But upon entering is that shows the real charm. The furniture is rustic and all mixed together, the accumulation of melted wax of the candles, and unique objects that seem to tell a story.

The aroma is delicious, mix of fruit juices, cakes and a wood-fired oven. And the food? Oh the food … so tasty, with a taste of fresh produce.

When you think that no more surprises you discover the terrace! Very cozy, with tables, blankets, pillows and a lovely view that registered in video.

If you liked the decor style, what if you just take a little bit of that vibe in your home? Some tips: Choose some key pieces like a untreated wood table, colorful cushions made with natural materials, melted candles (always), a chalkboard, different and repainted chairs, and why not, a sequin hat so you will have a surprise factor.

I don’t remember when was my first contact with the works of the artist Joana Vasconcelos, but I know it was after moving to Portugal. The fact is that as soon as I saw, I was completely in love. So many textures, fabrics, threads, shine, shapes that turns into unique pieces. I always say that after I start a new print design, I don’t know the right time to stop. I put some elements, put and keep puting. And I think that’s why I identified so much with the beauty of these works, which give the impression that always fit an element there, another element here, but if you stop to add thing, is just already perfect.

In 2012, Joana Vasconcelos, became the first woman and youngest creator to exhibit some of his works at the Palace of Versailles in Paris.

The artist says she never was an honor student and found in arts freedom to explore and experiment.

Joana created arts using large pieces of ceramics of Bordalo Pinheiro giving them a “new skin”, lining them fully in crochet.
