A yacht? No, a Numptia.

Numptia, by Rossi Navi

It is 70 meters long, has 6 bedrooms, a gymnasium, jacuzzi, spa deck, barbecue, party area, and a glass elevator. It’s never too much when it’s luxury.

Beyond the disgraceful opulence of having a yacht, the interior design of the Numptia is absolutely fantastic. The mix of materials -wood, steel, leather, velvet and stone-, the browns, the greys, the beiges… it just sounds right.

I believe in the exceptional experience of luxury… as long as it is in a constant state of innovation.

My favorites of the week, from Bouchra Jarrar. Clean lines, simple yet extremely elegant style and colors. Less is more.

Hero, by Nameless

Parisians, of course. A bit pop-rock, a bit electro. I love the energy. Makes you feel like moving.

Why banana?

My friend created a blog last week and I found it absolutely great so I had to share it with you. You NEED to check it out: http://itisjusta.tumblr.com/! It is original, fun and really entertaining. This is a clever collection of people’s creative, fancy, crazy and sometimes scary interpretation of common things we use in our daily lives.

So I went through her blog and “fell” on this article.  Most people know it, I have very little affection for bananas and I often say that the banana is legitimate in smoothies only. Nevertheless, I must admit that this article changed my mind on the unpleasing fruit.

Bananas can actually be quite an interesting tool for HUMOR and CREATIVITY DEVELOPMENT. The very involved proof is that googling any other fruit-shoe will not show as many interesting results as the banana does. Except the watermelon maybe (yes, I have tried a few…).


Have a cup of tea

Winter is here. It’s cold and windy in Paris.

I am craving for a Tibetan white tea… I would go to Mariage Frères, sit at a cosy corner of the Rive Gauche tearoom and sip my Tibetan white tea with a piece of their fabulous Etoile Mystérieuse cheescake…

Where Am I?
