Art + Chalkboard walls at Velvet



Via Pinterest I came across a picture made by Designer and Stylist Sania Pell, author of  The Homemade Home I emailed her about the picture. And told her how much I loved the photos of café-bar Velvet, she made in Zagreb. We had a lovely conversation and she told me how much she loves MERCI as well.. Ofcourse I gave her the adress of Restaurant Grazie a few blocks down to MERCI in Paris. A different, but beautiful place like this one.


The interior of cafe and gallerie Velvet is the vision of the talented Croatian contemporary artist and florist Saša Šekoranja. And I love the combination of greys, blacks and the little red details .. like the red stamped numbers on the tables and the legs of the chairs. I remember loving that kind of details in the cafe of MERCI as well last summer. More pictures of Velvet and the work of Saša Šekoranja can be found on Sania's website  and on the Velvet website.








Lovely white ceramics... also to be found on the XL - Danish design tea towels we are giving away on the concept blog - competition open till Januari 23

This is lovely. We have a chalkboard wall in bedroom upstairs but I want a whole wall in my kitchen in chalkboard.

I'm with the others in wanting a giant chalkboard in my kitchen - as in 'wall'! These images are fabulous inspiration.
