Here follows an article published by ELLE DECOR Italy about Chefchaouen, the blue pearl of north Africa.
Is it possible to get lost in a seascape, staying in the heart of Morocco? If by sea we mean a poetic amalgam of infinite shades of blue, the answer is absolutely yes and there is also the perfect place to do it: the city of Chefchaouen, the “blue pearl” of the Rif.
Between the narrow streets of this inhabited center founded in 1400 by Andalusian exiles, Muslims and Jews, in fact, everything is blue, from the walls to the shop signs, from the doors to the steps of the streets, from the sky to the taxi cabs. It is not known whether this is due to ancient Jewish traditions, a lively expedient to remove insects, a colorful trick to keep the rooms cool and calm the mind or a tribute to the importance of water, but it does not matter because the result it is a suggestive city-painting unique in the world.
Still life of a cup of coffee with croissant is the new Monnalisa… According to us.
We like to share with you our new discovery and this time we are so pleased to introduce you the work of Anne Ten Donkelaar, a Dutch artist that has worked with cut-out flower arrangements and that is now taking further her research.
Her latest work “underwater ballet” she sinks simple and yet profound bouquet of flower anchoring each one of them to a metal trinket, the result is a choreography of a dance, taken in a single shoot: poetically light and delicate.
You all know we love exceptional design and out of the box ideas and that is why we love so much our Golden polka dots “Golden Sky” coffee cup and saucer! We think it is the perfect one to drink our coffee.
Since the decor is 100% hand made by artist Paola Francesca Denti we have just a few of them, and if you’d like it to be yours just write an e-mail to m.cavalleri [AT] mogicaffe.it
