Athenian apartment (worth seeing)

I absolutely fell in love with this apartment in Syntagma Sq., that's the very heart of Athens.
Conceived by an architect, it's 200m2 , bathed in natural -Greek!- light.
What do you think, people?

Greek Light: Queen Calliope's World

Last summer I visited for the first time the shop of Calliope. 
The world famous Greek photographer has been a favorite of mine, a bohemian style icon, an accomplished professional.

Α kaftan came home from her collection

 I loved her work in her first book, a few years ago.
Now she is publishing her second book, 
Children of the Light, Journey in Greece, 
benefiting children charities.

You can see more on Calliope Karvunis, here and here.
Her Instagram is right here.
And see a recent interview

Holiday cheer (Part IV: What my Holidays looked like)


 Times of cheer and anguish.
Missed opportunities.
Half-finished projects.


Finding my way amidst all of it.
Finding purpose.


A tree.
Strings of light.
No clutter.


The peace of it.
Sensing what matters.
Enjoying what is.


Because life has a way of going on. 
And giving us sweetness when we least expect.


Goodbye 2014
Thank You, 
with all my heart.

‘Loulou de la Falaise, the Glamorous Romantic’


de la Falaise's style somehow reminds me of Ines de la Fressange, some decades later.
Both ladies were/are so idiosyncratic. 
Fascinating, indeed.
