LOOK! IT´S A BOOK! (OR TWO)

minamoka.com | look! it's a book!

Take three bloggers who are passionate about the topics they blog about, add some sugar and spice, mix it with talent, personality and cleverness, stir well and sprinkle with a little luck before serving. The delicious results are two books that are hitting the shelves these days: Meike Peters' cookbook eat in my kitchen (named after her magnificent blog ) and Urban Jungle, a guide to living with plants by the masterminds and souls behind the Urban Jungle Bloggers movement: Igor Josifovic and Judith De Graaff

SOLO FOR AMARYLLIS

solo for amaryllis | minamoka.com

 

Since this month's urban jungle bloggers' motto "botanical zoom" coincided with the bloom of our amaryllis I thought it would be the chance to finally become a part of Judith's and Igor's green family with a one woman show performed by this beautiful light pink lady.

HELLO AGAIN

 

Hey-ho. I'm still on board of this blog even though I didn't show up for a while. 2015 wasn't as empty as it might have seemed to a visitor of this little space of mine. In fact, it was packed and amazing and full of surprises. Wanna know a little more about it?

SITZFELDT COOKS

 

The annual Sitzfeldt dinner seems to be becoming a tradition! The Sitzfeldt team chooses its photoshooting locations wisely: They have to come with a kitchen, serve as a photo set by day and be able to magically transform into dinner party locations at night - last year we were invited to the Apartment, this year it was the Gebrüder Fritz Location in good old Charlottenburg. There we could catch a glimpse of the new sofa and side table collection, chat with the "Sitzfeldt family" - founders Anna, Clemens and Julius and photographer Andy Küchenmeister  - and get to know another member of the extended family, designer Steffen Kehrle. He presented his work to us and gave some interesting insights into the designing process at Sitzfeldt

WHO IS OPHELIA PANG ?

 

Honestly: I don't know. I stumbled upon her work on pinterest, but she doesn't reveal much about herself - "she'd rather speak in colours and shapes". At least that's what she says on her site.

But I do like Ophelia Pang's shapes, colours and patterns a lot, and even more her illustrations - and was happy to find out that they're also available on society six in her shop frameless.

FRANCE, A NEW YEAR AND A BUMPY START

Okay, I'm still here. I've been here all the time but my transition into the new year (which isn't new anymore, I know) wasn't as smooth as I expected it to be. It's all good now, but I didn't feel like posting pictures or sharing anything during the past weeks. But now! Here are some impressions from our trip to the sunny south of France over christmas. It was the first time I spent christmas in a warm and sunny place and: it wasn't too bad. I didn't miss ANYthing. 

It was also my first trip to Nice and I must say I fell in love with that city a little bit - we just spent one day there but I was surprised how beautiful it is. I have a love-hate relationship with the french language because I've always wanted to learn it but never really succeeded in it which is why I always kind of avoided the country, being like: Pah, France, I don't need you and that arrogant language I don't speak!  I guess I had to be forced by some of my (french speaking...) family members who picked the Côte d'Azur as our christmas destination to get over that trauma. France, I still don't speak your beautiful arrogant language, but I like you!

OH ISTANBUL!

Oh istanbul! | minamoka.com

Finally - Istanbul! Last weekend I escaped to Istanbul to meet a dear friend who lives in Turkey now after we lived in the same town in Eastern Europe for a couple of years. Both of our lives have changed quite a bit since then and strolling through the streets of Istanbul for hours and hours gave us enough time to catch up, get lost, admire both its traditional architecture and its new identity as a design hub and take occasional breaks at one of Istanbul's many cool and cozy cafés. This city has definitely made it to the list of my favourite places and two days were just enough to get a taste of it.

HELLO FALL AND WHY I LOVE MONDAYS

fall

 

Beginning are the best.

 

Like the beginning of fall, when the leaves are slowly changing their colors and vibrant red suddenly appears next to good old green. 

Unlike most people I also like the beginning of each new week. Yes, I like mondays! I usually start my mondays in a good mood, convinced that I will be able to tick off everything that's on my to-do list for the week. Of course that never happens. But hope dies last!

 

I hope you all had a terrrriffic monday!

SURPRISE SUMMER

color combo range and indigo | minamoka.com

 

It has been a warm and sunny week in Berlin and even though I didn't have much time to enjoy it I'm sure that it made my stressful week a lot easier. 

 

And those flowers I got at the market last weekend brought late summer colors to my home, too. Orange and indigo. Not such a bad combination, don't you think?

 

Have a wonderful weekend!
