  • Moxie in Mumbai

    Mumbai has left me a little speechless. I knew what to expect: extreme poverty and exceptional wealth, an assault on the senses, juxtapositions at every turn. But it is the way that the city and all its extremes are not divided but entwined together that got me. It's vibrant, overwhelming, humbling, sometimes frustrating, and always teaming with infectious energy.

  • Brightened, Balanced, and Blissful in Budapest

    I am a big believer in getting lost in a city, but Budapest is actually really easy to navigate through. Don’t get me wrong, you can build up a sweat on the cobble stone hills of Buda but Pest is flat. The metro is really simple to follow with just 4 lines interconnected with 5 railway lines and will help when jumping across the city from bath house to bath house. Trust me you will be too relaxed to want to move energetically.

  • In the Midnight Hour á la Art Nouveau

    We came up with the theme of Art Deco Downtown LA as we are both loving geometrical shapes and the decadence of the 20's just fits with New Year. However as we started shopping for our items, that all changed. We found these amazing Japanese plates and voila our theme had a visionary revamp. Japonism is essentially the influence of Japanese art on the west and was greatly represented during the Art Nouveau era. Time to mix these forms with a few other Asian touches to create a truly inspired table.
