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.

Plants

It’s always nice with welcoming plants at the entrance – here in a nice plant box with legs for the height. Looks great when contrasting so well with the facade.

Baklava

Baklava – an addictively tasty & crispy phyllo dough cake with nut filling that must be tried. Especially the Turkish variant that’s not soaked in syrup, but just very crispy. And have it preferably, together with black strong coffee.
