Vintage

Sometimes I find it very appealing with the romantic vintage style, a little French, a little feminine, and a lot of flashbacks.

Black and white

When shooting for different purposes, it’s easy to zoom in on a corner & style it to get a reasonably finished impression. And black / white decor always hits home with the audience. Simple & nice!

Textile designer

A large exhibition, “Wanja Djanaieff and her twenty-two favorite colors” is now shown at Marabouparken art gallery, displaying her work through the ages & confirms her as one of Sweden’s most influential textile designers.

Wanja was born February 1941 & almost completely unknown to most people, but not her patterns. During the 1960s & 70s, she drew hundreds of textile patterns for clothes, furniture & fabrics, which were used & spread all over Sweden.

Her work became known to a wide audience when she designed clothes for the Swedish Olympic team in Munich in 1972. The pattern with yellow crowns on a blue background becomes Djanaieff’s perhaps most famous work.

Durian

Singapore’s official fruit is the durian. Some people regards the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering with an unpleasant odour. The smell evokes reactions & the persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit’s banishment from certain hotels & public transportation. Despite the stench, durian is considered to be extremely healthy.

The Esplanade building next to Marina Bay is inspired by this “beloved” fruit.
