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.
Check out this lamp installation!!

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
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.

Found a bunch of various large light bulbs at Magasin du Nord while visiting Copenhagen last week. The beauty of the light bulb in these LED-lamp days is a relief.
When in doubt, visit Jonathan Adler’s shop. I found this intel on newyorkinspiration.com and as everything else New York Inspiration writes about, it is a gem.
Adler keeps delivering true color inspiration as well as attention to detail.
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.

How cool are these cups and saucers?
Such a smart idea, mirror:ish cups on colorful saucers that makes them look so very cool.
I have to admit I have a thing for Japan. I love the people, the food, the courteousness, the order, the attention to detail…the list can go on forever.
On a recent trip I was roaming around just looking at whatever caught my eye, and I enjoyed looking at the products at this shop in Kyoto… and then it occured to me that it was Danish design (!). Not that I should have been so surprised, I really enjoy Danish design as well. A lot. But I just didn’t expect to stumble across it just then and there.
By the way, if you are heading towards Kyoto, try to stay some nights in a ryokan, that is an experience that you shouldn’t miss, but if you want to save some $ you can stay really comfortably at a hostel. I stayed at Piece Hostel Kyoto. Awsome place! I totally loved it. It is a friendly, no fuss, squeaky clean place with oh-so-comfy-beds. With friendly and super helpful staff as the cherry on top.
This is so gorgeous that it doesn’t even need an introduction.
Well, what can I say, but Royal Copenhagen keeps doing it. Since 1775 they have been adorning the world’s many homes, and tablelscapes have been so much prettier with their help for hundreds of years.
Which color do your prefer when it comes to this, their new line ‘Fluted’?
