Gysbrechts Leytens

This is a detail of a beautiful 1610’s painting by Gysbrechts Leytens which I saw at the Picture Gallery in Prague. I love how it captures the true sense of winter. Its neutral colours give such a modern drama to the painting.


I love this Vogelbauer-vase which is a Japanese porcelain from the 17thcentury.  It is in the Zwinger Museum in Dresden. A true must for all museum lovers!

Winter Sea

Procida, an island off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. It is very romantic and its beautiful winter sea is what inspired me to be a regular. I enjoyed the stunning views at the ‘Il Postino’ restaurant where I always go for lunch.
