NYC // Roebling Tea Room

The Roebling Tea Room is located in a former industrial space in Williamsburg. Just go up the steps and into the big dining room for brunch, lunch, dinner or -what’s in a name?- tea! The restaurant is owned by former rock musician Syd Silver, and the food is by the hand of self-trained chef Dennis Spina. Both the space and the food you get on your plate have an eclectic and relaxed vibe, and according to many (oh so many!) reviews, Roebling offers amazing dishes. Read more ›

Regent’s Canal Snapshots

71724_438539420221_2066469_n

Regent’s Canal was built during the early 19th century and passes various North London parks, the London zoo, repurposed warehouses and other former industrial sites. It was originally built to link the Grand Junction Canal with the River Thames. Now, the canal mostly serves as a place of leisure for Londoners on sunny days, and on these days it really is an amazing place for a jog, bike ride or a stroll. Read more ›

NYC // Aesop Bleecker St

Aesop Bleecker St (NY) - The Epic Guide

On Bleecker Street you’ll find the third New York City outpost of the Australian skin care brand Aesop – well-known for their visually stunning flagship stores all over the world. Instead of going for a singular look for all their shop interiors (as almost all other fashion and cosmetics houses do), they work with many talented architects and designers to create a completely unique and different interior in each location, often drawing inspiration from the context.

In this little gem of a shop the designers of Melbourne-based March Studio where inspired by the neighborhood’s bohemian past, creating a warm and intimate interior using wooden wall paneling, gorgeous brass details and a leather floor. We’re especially loving the Louis Poulsen pendant light and the huge brass sink – a signature detail coming back in every Aesop store, where you can try out all their quality products, before treating yourself to a new soap or shampoo – pleasing both your skin as well as your eyes: their highly stylized black bottles add an instant dose of design to your bathroom!

NYC // Reynard

Reynard Brooklyn // Wythe Hotel NYC

This one was on our to do list before Dieter and I arrived for the third time together in NYC. With most of the “touristy” things checked off our list or not high priority, that leaves a whole lot of time for brunching, wining and dining (or cocktailing and dining, as we do most of the time). The Wythe hotel was a must on our list in april this year, and so, after visiting the Brooklyn Flea and before heading over to Roosevelt Island, we went for brunch at Wythe’s ground floor restaurant Reynard.

Just a few shots from our trip to Brazil from Rio and the small town of Paraty! After these two stops we traveled to Sao Paulo to enjoy the world class restaurants, shops and bars.  Next up was Brasilia, doing nothing but architecture spotting.  Read more ›

Barcelona, Shop

La Central

DSC_4076

Even when you do not read Spanish books, this shop is a heavenly shop to get lost in during an hour or so. There are different La Central shops around Barcelona, but my favorite is most definitely the one situated in MACBA. Way back when I used to study at the university next door, a day of classes would often end with browsing the racks of this bright bookshop. The space is in the same building as the museum, designed by Richard Meier, and is white and pleasant, with big windows to let the sunshine in. Read more ›

Berlin // Voo

I went to Berlin with my boyfriend for a short weekend to visit some friends in march of 2012 and it was magical. The weather was amazing, we went to see Florence and the Machine in Columbiahalle, and we spent hours talking over brunch, dinner and drinks. The 48 hours we spent there seemed like an eternity (in a good way!). Read more ›

Tramshed

Tramshed - The Epic Guide to London

Remember the show “Cow and Chicken” on Nickelodeon? Well that’s actually the idea when you go to East London restaurant Tramshed. It’s either steak or chicken you get on your plate. And oh, the chicken comes with its legs still attached.
