Nina Farmer is located in the chic and classic neighborhood of Beacon Hill in Boston. Surprisingly I came across this house while at a cafe in Istanbul, where it is law for every cafe to have a reading section. It was featured in House Beautiful Turkey. The decor throughout is refined and eclectic with a few masculine furniture pieces. My favorite area is the entryway which Nina converted into the dining room. The walls and ceiling are painted in one uniform grey color, the ceiling itself is a magnificent work of art with a center skyline with a sputnik chandelier. The brownstone seems to be very roomy due to the size of the kitchen that fits a big island and a spacious work area. Enjoy!
Beymen Department Store in Istanbul is like the synthesis of Barney's in New York. Although they don't carry everything online, their stores carry all the exclusive and kind of hip brands that you can ever think of. The Beymen located in the newly opened Zorlu Center also offers a gorgeous Cafe/Restaurant, Morini that is beautiful decorated with blue and white tiles, black and white mosaic floors, mirrored bar shelves and fresh and beautiful flowers. Istanbul Interior Design is influenced by the City's unique location, between Europe and Asia, whilst being more European in design. It takes its beautiful and unique style from its rich past of grandeur and splendor. Everywhere you go you may find cozy and chic cafes decorated in different styles but always stylish. Since I never feel ashamed to take pictures, regardless of where I am, I took some pictures of Morini Cafe. It's better to do something even when it's not too cool than regretting not doing it later.

Today is my husband's birthday and I'm happy we get to spend it with his parents and our little one, who is not really a little one anymore. My hubby is a very humble person with one of the most admirable qualities I can only hope I had, patience. Everyone who gets to know him falls in-love with his enthusiastic personality and kindness. He will never let you know he already knows about the interesting fact you are telling him, instead he would make you feel incredibly important and smart. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have him in my life simply because he is the best human being I've ever met, and since today is his birthday I'm posting the material things he has always admired and I hope one day be able to gift him. He prefers everything that looks vintage and simple.It is also a tradition of my husband to thank his parents, especially his mother on this day. A big congratulations to my mother in-law for having raising such a great person.

We've been having a great time away from home. We got to spend a few days in Zurich and plan to spend three weeks in Turkey. It's amazing how time flies when you're having a great time and I can't believe almost two weeks have past. Here are a few images from my Instagram account and also two awesome new bracelets (last picture) coming soon to Tyche.

Lazaro Rosa Violan's studio with an oversized white architectural salvage piece behind. Then of course I saw the script and there it was. Photos taken at Lazaro Rosa-Violan Studio. Then I did a little more research about it and found out at Lazaro's Facebook page that some of them were taken at his house. It is always great to see more of Lazaro's work and all thanks to American Vogue. Enjoy!
Here throw the door we can see the Chinese panels Rosa-Violan had in another area of his studio.
