MOCCA & ME QUICK LIST || Week 38/2014

Hello my dears. I'm having a week off from work and finally had some time to read blogs and blog myself. It's now time for the Mocca & Me quick list of fun and fab things I stumbled on this week. Hope you enjoy!

Have fun and stay safe!

Eye candy

I love the industrial look of this kitchen: full of character and effortlessly cool. Thumbs up!

Must see 
This commencement address by Australian comedian and musician Tim Minchin appeared in my Facebook timeline and I had to share it with you all of you. It's an intelligent, witty and inspirational talk where he shares his nine life lessons. Eloquently told with a healthy doses of cynicism and humor. Refreshing!

Home tour
If you like colorful homes then you have to see this beautiful home filled with sparks of color and style in Melbourne Australia. I'm sure you'll fall in love with it.

Quick recipe
I love a good soup. It's easy and quick and when made from scratch with all natural ingredients you'll have a simple, healthy and delicious meal. I've been making fresh soups for myself very often lately and have tried many vegetables. I haven't made tomato soup yet, but this recipe for creamy vegan tomato soup looks delicious. If not for the recipes then check out the blog for the beautiful photography.

DIY tip
If you're looking for ideas on what to do with a boring wall in your house you could consider giving it a bare concrete look. Here is a tutorial on how how to paint a wall in a faux concrete wall finish.

Sound bites
The song Promises of No Mans Land by Blaudzun is one of my favorites this summer. I was happy to see this band live during a festival back in july. I'm leaving you with their live performance of the song in Paradiso.

HOME TOUR || White basis, black accents and touches of copper

Today I'm taking you on a tour through a Swedish home. This home has a white basis, black accents to give it some edge and a touches of copper to give it some glamour. You don't need a whole lot to create a cool living space. I'm excited of course to see the Tom Dixon copper shade lamp. I own one myself and even after four years it is still one of my favorite items in my home. I'm really digging the coffee tables in the living room!

FAVOURITE THINGS || Eames chairs

Hello everyone! It's been a while. How have you been? Today I'm blogging about a few of my favorite things: the Eames chairs. I've blogged about the Eames chairs before here and here and they've been on my list of favorite chairs for a while now. And now that is giving away two DSW chairs to bloggers who write about these fab chairs, it is a good excuse to write a post about these super cool design classics. And if I'm lucky I could have two of them! How fantastic would that be? In the picture below my own work space with very own DAW chair sitting proudly at my desk.
I've been obsessing over the the Eames chairs for some time and last year I bought the DAW chair in white for my own home. I remember the chair being delivered to my home and being over the moon with it. I love the way it looks in my home and it's a really comfortable chair to sit in and work. I would love the DSW chairs for my dining table, so fingers crossed and hoping I win them :-) Who else is in love or has an Eames chair? Share your story and leave a comment. If you're looking to buy an Eames chair go to They come in a wide range of very cool colors and finishes, like a this very stylish shiny black DSW. And of course you'll find all the other Eames classics there as well like the DAR, the DSR, the DKR and the RAR rocking chair and many more. And here is some more eye candy and inspiration for your pleasure!
 Two DAW chairs are perfect as side chairs in the living room. What a great idea, right?

For a modern look add DSR chairs with metal legs, like in this beautiful dining room.

How about a cool petrol colored DSW chair combined with a desk with industrial look and a grey wall behind it. I love this workspace.
