A beautiful luncheonette situated in the heart of Portland, MÅURICE is a haven in the city. Blending French & Nordic cuisines, you can't help but slow down, breathe in, and enjoy the finer things in life. You'll find fresh flowers on every table, one of the many touches that make this place special. My favourite place to dine in Portland.
Recommendations: the daily quiche, a glass of rosé, and a currant + fennel pastry.
An eclectic café located in the heart of Tel Aviv, Sheleg is the perfect place to brunch. While it may be hard to choose a place amongst the many wonderful cafés in Tel Aviv, Sheleg offers a classic and simply delicious Mediterranean menu. Filled with antique souvenirs, you feel like you are stepping back in time. Recommendations: black coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, "bread break", and toast with raw tehina + date honey.
Florence is beautiful, but with the amount of tourists it can be quite overwhelming. Todo Modo is a wonderful place, located near the centre that provides a space to sit, read, and reflect. A bookstore in the front, with a bar/café in the back, Todo Modo is one of my favourites in Florence. The hanging plants, the smell of books, the wood covered interior, all provide a cosy nook to escape to. Recommendations: a glass of chianti + a pen and journal.
Searching for a place to slow down and breathe in the bustling centre of Barcelona may be challenging, but Bar Cugat provides a solution. A timeless bar situated in Eixample, with an elegant yet low-key atmosphere. While originally only stopping in for a coffee, we found ourselves returning an hour later for a wonderful dinner. Recommendations: classic tapas + vermut.

I am an art director and set designer.
I believe that there is a strong correlation
between the worlds of design, art and
fashion. That in order for you to create
innovative and lasting ideas you must
approach projects with a fluid and artistic
mindset, as opposed to a more strategic
or business-minded thought process.
