Cocktails & Chill

Winding down for the holidays has made me long for nights by the Mediterranean and silent days spent in frivolity. The playful interior of this hideaway nestled in among the olive groves definitely sets the stage for my summer dreaming (expand to get the full calm down effect). -tM

When the practicality of mathematics co-mingles with pink marble and brass, life becomes even sweeter. Lines and shapes that take you on a journey; isn’t that the expectation of beauty anyway? To be swept away in her bosom of purpose and form? -tM

In Appreciation of my Roots

I don’t remember much as I was only a child of 11 at the time, but there are certain details of that trip that became important to me; sewn into the fabric of my being. Like the fresco faded walls of my grandmothers house in Serbia, the wall details and decorations that despite poverty, made a home more then just a place to rest your head. The plates, the cutlery, and the food that sustained and gave life.

There was strength built into both of my grandmothers homes. I felt it, even as a young child. Perhaps that is why I chose to remember these very specific details, because against all odds, they were survivors of a life that was difficult, and they did the best they could, making the most of what they were given. -tM
