Hello there — it has been such a whirlwind week, and in the nicest way: A project that I've been working on for a while now finally launched this week! mer. is a concept store in Frankfurt that I'm sharing with two other talented designers and together we want to create a space that presents design that is thoughtful, engaging and beautiful. We had our launch party on Tuesday evening (and literally put the finishing touches on everything seconds before the party kicked off!) and I'm so excited to see what the next three months bring. So if you're in Frankfurt, please stop by our store and say hi (I'll be there Friday 12 — 6 pm, Saturday 11 am — 6 pm).
Here's some material if you're in the mood for some reading:
/ Popcorn (made in a pot on the stove) has become one of my favourite at-home snacks: it's crunchy, fairly healthy and so easy to customize! Here's a great recipe for turmeric popcorn.
/ Love this lamp — outsized and playful, yet so sleek.
/ How to make the weekend last much longer—and its a theory with scientific backing!
/ I want this to become my summer bag!
/ A very useful guide to picking paint colours for your home (in collaboration with colour experts Farrow and Ball)
Have a wonderful weekend — stay warm! x
