new books + summer blog break

Today is my birthday and in the last days the postman has been ringing the bell to bring me new books. I got some good ones. Yesterday I started reading American Modern by interior and home furnishings designer Thomas O'Brien and couldn't put it down. It's a beautiful book, a personal one, and with every home feature O'Brien shares his design process. I'm particularly fond of all the styling details and seeing more angles of his 57th Street NY home, which is featured in the book.

Believe it or not but today I'm not baking anything, just wasn't in the mood for a cake. All I wanted was Green & Black's organic ice cream and I'm about to eat a lot of it. A lot!

It is time to make the most of summer. I will be on a blog break for the next two weeks. I'm hoping to explore our new surroundings a little better and go to the seaside. See you later!
