So this is what happened at school today. We were bored and so we had some fun with Tommy who has grown his hair so long and beautiful! :D In Italy we have this tv show called Striscia la Notizia which basically shows all kinds of stupid news and happenings all around Italy and the world. In between the "news" there are two showgirls who entertain the public at home with their pretty sexy dances (this is italian television!), they're called le Veline and usually one is blonde the other one is brunette. So.. what you think of us.. as the new Veline? I think we're quite hilarious.. and original! I just couldn't resist on sharing it with you guys! Have a great evening!

This man who created this is The Man of the 21st century design scene. He's name is Jaime Hayon and I've posted about him already before (here! and here!) . What else can I say..
I'm in love.
This is what I'd aspire to create .. one day.. something so classy and ...
you see, I'm out of words! And my mind is elsewhere..
..drinking martinis with My Man in La Terrazza del Casino..
This dreamy place is Faberge Geneva jewellery store.
... So.. are you enthusiastic as I am ?
Have you heard about him before and what do you think about his work?
Jaime actually reminds me a little Gaudì.. and I don't think I'm comparing the two just because they both are spanish. Jaime is still young and is just at the beginning of his career but he's got all what it takes to become the next true legend.

When it comes to fashion italians don't have any problems, we all know that. Old or young, women or men, while keeping it trendy, they never forget the touch of elegance, that's their secret. But rather than seeing some fashion victims on the street, you see people who are dressed well and never out of the context. Appropriateness and easyness, that's what makes them truly chic (inside).. As I've written before about Italian men way of dressing and seeing fashion (check it out here!), it's time to give some spaces to the women!
Her name is Alessia.
Roma, 4 o'clock in the afternoon, at Ara Pacis, (the museum built by Richard Meier).

So here are the shoots of the exhibition. We didn't stay for long, just the time to enjoy a glass of wine and see the works. I liked it, great works. Btw, Veleno in italian means poison.
I couldn't not shoot the toys of De La Soul, one of my favourite hip hop groups of the 80's!
SO TRUE. This was almost my favourite work. In italian television all you see is basically - sorry for my language - tits and buts. Ahh and Berlusconi too, represented as a martyr.
They served us some poison, too... ;)

As most of you are preparing for Friday night out, I'm... preparing myself to go to sleep - I've got school tomorrow, not that cool at all. Ah, but no worries, tomorrow night will compense everything as I'll be going with my friends to the vernissage of "VELENO", an exhibition of two italian artists, DIAMOND and JB Rock, who mainly do stencils. It's held in the MondoPOP Gallery, in Via dei Greci 30. I'll be definitely taking some pictures, so be ready! In the meanwhile here is a track I've been listening a lot lately, from the Hed Kandi 88 Nu Disco album.
And now go and have a crazy night out !
As you can see I've continued with the close-ups. Don't know if these shoots can actually be defined as portraits but I did find this "being" very very inspiring! I found this poor butterfly, already passed away, while I was looking for a book, underneath my bed. But oh! how was it gracious and fragile, it's golden wings were perfectly preserved. Obviously I couldn't resist and took a few shoots.
Check out my previous post about the Grace of the Nature here!

I just found this clip on web and thought I should definitely share it with you guys. Remember post you about the street art event OUTDOOR held in Garbatella? If somebody of you missed it you can read the post and see the pictures here. Great event. These four minutes are specifically dedicated to a couple of artists, Sten and Lex, who performed their work during that event. They talk shortly about how they started and which tecniques they use, what inspires them and what they think about Rome as a city. Besides being considered as the "pioners" of stencil art in Rome, they are famous all around the world thanks for their signature style called the "hole school" which consists in the use of pixels, small spots and lines in the creating of the stencils. This is the picture I took of the building in Garbatella, during the OUTDOOR.
Okay.. I could go on forever with the pictures but I'm stopping here and suggesting YOU to check out their flickr page from here!
Wishing you all a Groovy Saturday Night!

Remember I posted a picture of myself which my friend Kadri-Ann took of me a few weeks ago here? And remember I promised to post the pictures I took of HER? Well here they are, I chose the best four. What do you think of them? I find her gorgeous and I think I managed to do her justice. You know I'm not that great at taking pictures of people.. I usually feel much comfortable shooting architecture and nature but then I said to myself - no actually I didn't say anything - I just decided I must over-come this stupid complex of mine. We took these pictures on the roof of my house, it was a really lovely afternoon.. Remembering now that day with a great nostalgy..
My first week of my final year at school is almost finished. It's good to be back but the pressure is strong, no jokes this year. We changed some teachers in few subjects and luckily they all seem very professional, time will only tell if that's true. In English we have, for example, a new teacher with an extremely good pronunciation! He's our 9th teacher in only four years, can you imagine? No wonder we joke about how that job has been damned just like the Defense Against Dark Arts subject in Harry Potter, ha. So.. I was thinking about how it's time to bring back a little bit of design and architecture in this blog and so I will post some photos of my last year's work as soon as I take my camera to school. In the meanwhile here's a bunch of random inspiring eye candy on the subject. Hopefully I'll have the time to write soon so take care!
I usually don't like it when the interiors are entirely made out of wood but in this case the right illumination really makes the difference.
Even though I love big windows I still could not imagine myself living in a house like this.. This solution is clever and a must for those who, like me, do not like the idea of being observed by someone in the bush, late at night... :D
First I didn't like the picture on the right but now I'm really thrilled with this marble-wall solution. As I do think a window near working-space is much better, I'm not that convinced about the desk's collocation as the massiveness of the wall could not affect positively on one's celebral activity and concentration. Anyhow I would definitely use this solution in some other circumstance! Note how the lightening makes the marble look much less cold, it almost looks organic. Doesn't it remind you of Jupiter's surface?
The illumination is perfect in this house- look how the light just glows inside thanks to the right positioning and planning of the house.
This is another typical Scandinavian modern summer house. I love the different combination of different material in architecture.
All pictures (almost) taken from the site called Trendir.com, check it out, it's one of the best in my personal opinion.
PS! Are you actually interested in seeing more architecture and design related posts on CN?
