Bacsac – happy plants solution

I am in the midst of searching high and low for some great (in my opinion) large pots [of some kind] for my indoor palm trees. And check these Bacsac’s out – aren’t they adorable? What a great invention; colorful, smart design (in many different ways – not only the invention – you can use it for the floor, to hang along a wall, or anywhere else you want on your terrace/balcony etc). And the colors!! Did I mention the colors? No I guess I didn’t. I think that as a true DMKA-person a Bacsac in orange would be suitable, don’t you?

Hollywood Farmers Market

Visit any Farmers Market, near or far, anywhere really – and you’ll have an abundance of design. In everything and anything.

Even the most simple things like fresh berries or fruit is beautiful. Mind you, these pictures haven’t been near photoshop. And the colors and shapes are just perfect …

Rocket Coffee Bar, Bangkok

Rocket_3_Menu_930

Bangkok has some of the most well designed coffee shops in the world according to us at DMKA. We love Bangkok for all its beauty and even in the not so beautiful things (still picturesque).

On our last visit we found (through a tip from talented New York Inspiration CEO Charlotte Raboff – whom is also the brain behind Thailand Living) Rocket Coffee Bar.

Rocket Coffee Bar has several locations and the one we chose to visit was located in Sukhumvit Soi 49. This Rocket is the newest addition to their Coffee Bars and also their largest so far. It has comunal seating, counter bar – and a stylish lounge at mezzanine level. Sooo cozy and sooo worth your while getting there.

Larchmont, Los Angeles

The first thing I noticed was the shape of the bottles. I stopped in my step and just had to stroke the glass bottles. The guy selling them kindly let us sample the juice and it was truly delicious. We were visiting Farmers Market at Larchmont – a quaint, smallish farmers market where there are a lot on offer but still not so much that it gets lost in translation.

Besides [the Farmers Market] Larchmont is a street with many nice places/shops/restaurants so if there is nothing of interest at Farmers Market (every Sunday) there is always other things/places to see/do.

Meanwhile, enjoy these vibrant colors

Thai jewels – Fonthip

Thailand jewelry

Thailand jewelry

While in Bangkok I had the pleasure of visiting the International Arts & Crafts fair 2015 where many very talented designers showcased their products. I found this jeweler – Ms. Fonthip Tangviriyamet – that had a wonderful assortment of various intriguing jewelry.

Fonthip’s style is delicate and almost airy. Fantastic workmanship and you can really tell that nature is a great inspiration since it shines through in all her designs. It is corals, autumn leaves, oriental flowers, message from earth, garland, stopped motion to mention a few of her lines. My favorite is coral. And Stopped in Motion. Which one is yours?

Please check out the website at www.fonthip.com, you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Unique jewelry made of goldplated copper

Malin Henningsson is yet another talented designer. Henningsson’s sculptural, minimalistic albeit maximalistic jewelry is unique in its design and in choice of material. Jewelry portrayed here is made of goldplated copper and pink quartz.

Each piece of jewelry is handmade by Henningsson in her Stocholm studio, thus after placing your order you’d have to wait a week or two while your unique piece of jewelry is being made.

Not that I’d mind.
