A beautiful installation at Turbine Hall called the Weather Project – where Olafur created an artificial sun and the people basked! An amazing idea that would be useful as a permanent feature in any city that has a long, dark winter.
Have you ever seen Tina Turner's house in the south of France? She's built quite a nice little life there and every time I see this photo of her from Architectural Digest, I mentally Photoshop myself into her place.
One of my absolute favourite books on illustration –The Age of Feminine Drawing is essentially a showcase of some the best illustrators out there currently that focus on feminine themes. It is a never-ending source of inspiration for me. (Images from Amazon and SweetNee)
I just watched a really great documentary about Nobu Matsuhisa and was really inspired and moved by his story and outlook. A tireless family man, who failed many times before succeeding really reminded me that it's a never stop trying attitude that prevails in the end. I was also surprised by his lovely manner and disciplined work ethic – which were never at odds. One can be a happy, motivating leader to their staff without sacrificing quality or their standards.
