emma with her family live here

I saw this beautiful house in Milk Deco two years ago. I completely felt in love with it. I tried to find out as much as possible about its owner – french designer based in London – Emma Cassi. She's incredibly talented jewelry designer (see her amazing jewellery here) and interior stylist (what you can see looking at photos of her house and here!) So, I followed her career and admired her gentle masterpieces. You can do the same and even buy something in her online boutique (here). Some time ago I asked Emma to share with kavkadesign her wonderful house. I was over the moon when I got email from her – he agreed!!!
So today I'd like to go with you to south west London, near Richmond park where Emma lives with her husband Bertrand and two beautiful kids - son Anton and sweet, little daugther...
Few questions to Emma:
--- 
1. How do you describe your house style?
Feminine, calm and imperfect.
2. Have you got your favourite designer or just love things of their beauty?
I love Dries van Noten, I discover his design, I was in art school since he inspire me every season. I love Astier de Villatte poterie for the old fashion and precious look, Tse-Tse design for the beauty and fun...
3. Whose house do you love or admire?
I love Isle Crawford house and her relaxed style as well as Li Edelkoort2 famous stylists with their own style.
4. Your most favourite colour...
Greyish-lilac
5. What's your dreamy place to live and create?
I would dream to love in Italy, in a very old farm or city house.
6. Your most inspiring book...
Isle Crawford Home is Where the heart is
7. Your most favourite movie...
The list is long but at the moment I would say:
Le scaphandre et le papillon Julian Schnabel
8. When you do not work...
In the morning after school 9 am to 9 pm but with lots of interruptions with the kids, I have a 3 months daughter.

If you like to follow Emma's steps – just follow her blog, I do it every day!
Dear Emma – 
thank you so much 
for your time (:-D) and sharing with us your beautiful house!

Frida Kahlo exhibition

One of the most exciting thing about my visit in Berlin was exhibition of Frida Kahlo. We had to stand 2 hours in line before getting into the museum but it was worth it!!! Many pictures, drawings, photos of Frida, her dresses, pages of her diary, movie, her plaster corset and... I tell you it was so excellent. Everyone who has possibility to visit Berlin now - must visit Martin-Gropius-Bau, but remember it's open till the beginning of August. All information you can find hereFor ticket you must pay 10 Euro. I'd like to show some pages from a catalouge. It's great, with all pictures, drawings and photos of Frida showed on exhibition, esseys and many interesting informations about her and her life.

Katalog do wystawy moi drodzy Przyjaciele z Polski ma bagatela 242 strony i jest wydany w formie albumu, w twardej oprawie z obwolutą. Dostępny był w dwóch wersjach: tylko obrazki z wystawy lub obrazki plus dodatkowo eseje, opisy dzieł i takie tam. Oczywiście po angielsku i niemiecku. Miał dwie ceny w zależności od zawartości - teksty kosztowały dodatkowo ok 15 euro (z tego co pamiętam). Może nadmiernie ekscytuje mnie ten fakt ale przypomina mi się wystawa Tomaszewskiego na której byłam jakiś czas temu w Muzeum Plakatu w Wilanowie. Wystawa ekstra, chciałam kupić jakiś katalog, katalożek, nawet broszurkę i NIC. Mieli jakieś kartki pocztowe ale z rysunkami satyrycznymi, których nawet nie było na wystawie. Może to za duże przedsięwzięcie dla naszych wystawienników - no nie wiem, może się czepiam bo jak chcę mieć album to powinnam iść do księgarni. Odwiedziłam jeszcze kilka wystaw w Berlinie min. Double Sexus Hansa Bellmer'a i Louise Bourgeois (którą też szczerze polecam) i katalog wyglądał tak samo, nie miałam już środków na karcie ;-) i nie nabyłam ale możliwość była. A u nas nie dość że nic ciekawego się nie dzieje to nawet nie można powspominać z katalogiem w ręku jeśli już coś uda nam się zobaczyć. Pozostaje ćwiczenie pamięci i wyobraźni. 
Cześć :-)
