the pen at hermes

Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director at Hermes hired Marc Newson to design the pen. When the two discovered a mutual admiration for Pilot, they asked the Japanese pen maker to produce it. Read more at Wallpaper.

It’s an object that you can put on a table and look at, sort of ponder and play with it. It compels you to want to touch it.

happy friday

The summer vacation here on the island has officially ended. Yesterday the schools were filled with their students once again. I've seen photographs of proud parents bringing their children to school. Kids running around on the playground. And teachers ready to start their school year. Of course the great thing about starting on Thursday is that the weekend is very near. And weekends in the Caribbean are always a mini summer vacation. The perfect opportunity to regenerate.

Wishing you an exquisite weekend.

porsche

Usually when people think of Porsche they think of men and Porsche. But in reality we know that a Porsche looks so much better with a woman in it. (I know.... I just put that in writing....I know there will be controversy........I am prepared for it).

On Saturday we are hosting a fundraiser and celebrating the 50th anniversary year of the Porsche 911 here in Curacao. The cars on display are mostly owned by men. But just look at the pictures below. Doesn't that look awesome? Who knows, they might just let me take their car for a spin. (One can hope).

Coffee is one of my favourite things. It is part of my morning routine. I enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up and some times I might have a few too many. This coffee bar in Oslo seems like one of those perfect places to savour a cup.

Below is another beautiful spread by Kinfolk. One of my favourite magazines. Photographs by Sune Frøyseth Eriksen.

“A lot of people have one perception of what coffee should taste like, but coffee is so diverse”

there are just a handful of midcentury modern chairs and tables for seating, and all coffee roasting is done on a single roaster near the entrance
