Looking for some comfort..

{Pure and simple}: After an unglamorous week-end spent trying to finalise a few things here and there... and a trip to an Italian restaurant for some nice Parma-ham and mozzarella accompanied by a rucola [rocket] and Parmesan salad, a nice cappuccino and torta di frutta to end the easy early dinner. Not too bad, after all the weather didn't inspire for much yesterday afternoon....nothing... but comfort ....

starting with COMFORT FOOD:


German stylist Maria Grossmann works with different photographers to develop and realise her own imagery, topics and create her own editorial work in areas of Interiors, Still Life and Food. Works mainly in Hamburg, Berlin and Paris.

and COMFORT CHIC BRAND:




The French brand Loft Design By... is opening its first British store in Westbourne Grove, London, this month. Collections consist of timeless essentials, scoop-neck knits with leather elbow patches and yoke-font, knee-length dresses.

in the COMFORT of a HOUSE like this:

what a soothing collection of images! maria grossman's work is a favorite of mine. i've bookmarked loft design's web site. and i adore marie clair maison italia's images. it's quite expensive here in california, but every once in a while, i'll splurge on it.
