After Spring comes Summer. Oh nooo, not in Berlin! Winter is celebrating a huge come-back right now.  It has been snowing like crazy and it turned so cold again. I didn’t believe my eyes when I have spotted this funky trompe-l’œil facade. It made me smile and instantly I felt a little bit warmer and in the mood for a cocktail.

My all time favorite place to take a very Parisian break, is the Swedish Institute (SI) in Le Marais.

This wonderful Parisian ‘Hôtel particulier’ is one of the most beautiful places where you can discover Swedish culture, art and design. I love the Café with all the yummy Swedish pastries and the cozy scandinavian atmosphere. Make sure you pay a visit to the garden. It’s magic!

Ps: Isn’t it crazy to go all the way to Paris to have a perfect Swedish coffee moment? I guess it’s all about the mix. Simply perfect!

Hell Yeah! I had such a nice Rock’n Roll coffee break with the talented Dutch Tattoo artist Sjoerd, who came all the way to Berlin to extend his “body gallery”. I’m so inspired and can’t wait to receive my new Summer tattoos.

I can’t remember the last time we had such a shitty rainy Summer. For the first time, I don’t care.
Summer is nice, no matter what!

Unfortunately I didn’t get much time lately to post more of my latest pictures or travel stories. I’m trying to catch up soon. Really!

So today I’ll share with you my inspiration of the week. The Linnman Gallery. Mia Linnman from the great blog Solid Frog will open in September together with her man a very nice and inspiring gallery in Jönköping, Sweden. It will be a place for creativity, art, design and interior design. Check it out – it’s gonna be something great!
