Peaceful Cuisine

Japanese chef Ryoya Takashima has a great YouTube Channel called Peaceful Cuisine. I’ve been enjoying it lately and using it to wind down. Ryoya’s presence is very mellow and his imagery is simple and, well, peaceful. The (no music) versions of the videos have a subtle ASMR quality that’s very relaxing. You can also learn some fantastic vegan recipes.

Château de Gudanes: A Love Story

download

I’ve told you about Château de Gudanes before. It’s a historic monument was designed by Parisian architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel, famous for his neoclassical, architectural symmetry, including the Le Petit Trianon and Place de la Concorde. Sadly it was left to ruin until 2013 an Australian moved in and committed themselves to restoring this architectural gem.

Last weekend they hosted a wedding at the house and you have to go check out the photos! They are so lovely.
Happy Friday everyone!

Kirra Jamison

I’m a fan of The Design Files Melbourne Mornings series. Recently they’ve featured artist Kirra Jamison.

She’s inspired me to think about new projects. Maybe break out of my comfort zone and explore more color, bolder shapes, experiment.
