Last week I would have done anything to be soaking up the balmy weather of south East Asia, rather than the freezing Auckland temperatures, so escaping to the media launch of Citta Design’s summer collection, A Midsummer Daydream held at Café Hanoi for one morning, was what I’d call a very pleasant micro break from the wet cold day outside.

Today my guest for the My Space series, is the very lovely Jocelyn Cassey. Jocelyn leads a very interesting life and is blessed to live between two cities that really couldn’t be more different from the other; Arizona, USA and Hamburg, Germany. Her blog, The Inner Interior, explores the art of designing and exploring the artful life and while Jocelyn is an Interior Designer by trade and you can go there for some great tips and advice, what I enjoy most of all is that she delves a little deeper.  I have no doubt that like me, you’ll to be enriched by reading Jocelyn’s personal experiences and reflections on interior design and life. I’m so happy to have her here today, sharing her favourite space in her Arizona home with us.

lemon lentil & spinach soup

Lentil soup. It takes me back to when I travelled through Turkey. My friend and I were on a backpacker’s budget so we’d quite often find ourselves eating a bowl of this soup at cafés along the way. It was nourishing and utterly delicious, I always had to resist from ordering more.

If there is one Australian design company that has incredible staying power, then the crown should go to Dinosaur Designs. Not only are they still around after almost thirty years in business, they have remained true to their brand and are even more relevant today then they were when I first fell in love with their work.
