To continue on the unusual, extreme design... This former Cement Factory was renovated in 1975. Not sure if I would like to live there, but the transformation is amazing. Read more on Yatzer.

Outdoor spaces... rustic, modern, chic, you name it. I am in love with the curved bench in the first one. Find many more ideas here.

I just told my husband that we need to see Grand Canyon very urgently.... Amangiri Resort Hotel being the only option :-)

To continue with Danish design: Milla had the chance to try different sizes of the famous Egg chairs by Arne Jacobsen in a shop near Ferney Voltaire. The shop is called Casa Design and have lots of lovely contemporary furniture. Not sure what brand the third chair is... Any ideas?

Finn Juhl

It's amazing how modern the Danish furniture designer Finn Juhl's (1912-1989) post war house, in the suburb of Copenhagen, feels. He designed both the outside and the interior of it. It was turned into a museum and visitors can now see how the architect lived with his own design. A visit on my wishlist...

After a quick visit to Italy, I confirm that Poliform kitchens are still one of my favourite...

How cool are these Spanish Manga rugs by GAN? I wish somebody would start copying them as the original prices are unfortunately rather spicy.

I just came back from Provence. It made me feel like a lousy blogger as I have seen beautiful things every day. I could have taken pictures and blogged all the time. But instead, I took the lazy approach and just enjoyed with my eyes.

One day, by pure chance, we entered what I would almost call paradise: La Chassagnette. A restaurant where everything was perfect: the garden, the food, the presentation, the whole setting.
