Across the Sydney Opera House, at the Overseas Passenger Terminal, Ocean Room restaurant headed by the Japanese celebrity chef, Raita Noda.
The design outcome resulted in a unique dining experience under the silhouette of 40,000 timber objects suspended from the ceiling. Within 7m high ceiling, the timber silhouette was dramatized in two parts: the front entry dark timber chandelier over the dark cocktail bar and, in contrast, a lighter coloured timber curtain was sculpted in the main dining area, creating a visual dialogue with the Sydney Opera House beyond. The timber objects swing and dance with harbour breeze and create pleasant hitting sounds just like Japanese furin over the main dining area.
The restaurant’s signature chandelier installation consists of over 3,000 miniature wooden cylinders, fitted together like a giant hanging puzzle. The floors to ceiling glass windows maximize the restaurant’s stunning location with spectacular views of Sydney’s Opera House and harbour.
Saturday? …you are thinking where to go – check out this amazing ceiling space ..or just enjoy the food!

As promised Part II – Today I take a sneak peek into Khloe’s house and more stylish clothes!
“I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!”
“What can I say, I love bling! I’m drawn to anything that sparkles. These shoes are my Sex and the City shoes. And my phone…my office is not complete without this beautiful thing! My bling phone makes business calls nearly stress free.” Christian Louboutin shoes

“When I saw this Balenciaga bag, I had to have it. The style is classic Balenciaga, but the print makes it so special. These Alaïa boots are fresh and they boast my signature leopard vibe.”
“I love this image— all of my beauties lined down the stairs.”
“I would not have my closet any other way but color coordinated! It makes getting dressed in the morning much easier, and makes your closet appear much cleaner.”
“My dining room is all about Marilyn Monroe. I searched high and low for a painting of her. Lamar and I are both fans, so a painting of her was something that would make my house complete. Diamond dust glazed over the top layer of paint was something I didn’t even know was possible. This painting adds so much glamour to my house; I will have it forever!”
Absolutely love her glamorous modern style. [Images & Text via Elle]

Designed by Architect Isay Weinfeld, the Square Nine Hotel is a contemporary construction integrating both modern and historical elements, as seen in many of the surrounding buildings. Located in the heart of Belgrade’s historical center, the boutique-inspired hotel is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and Kalemegdan.
Square Nine Hotel is the first five-star hotel to open in more than a decade in Belgrade. Located right in the heart of the historic center conspiring the ideal place to stay and pamper yourselves in contemporary luxury as you discover the blossoming capital of Belgrade. One of my favorite cities in the world.
The hotel was born from the owner’s desire to be part of Belgrade’s renovation, impressing a luxurious, but more familiar character to the city.
The interior design applies materials such as stone, bronze mirrors and wood claddings, both light and dark colored, which results in very cozy ambients and the most elegant atmosphere.

My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others.Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?
Welcome to my very first post …my first steps into the ‘blogging’ world. A beginning of something BIG!
If you are reading on I’ll assume you are interested so I will let you in on a few things about me.
So …let me introduce myself…
I am twenty-eight years old (so close to 30 – it’s the new 20 right!?). I’ve been married for almost a year.I was born in Serbia and I moved to Australia with my family over 15 years ago. From an early age (very, very early!) I’ve been drawn to design, art and drawing. I decided to pursue my passion …so I become an architect (best of all worlds, right?). I enrolled into University of NSW to study Architecture where I gained my ‘Masters in Architecture’ degree and I so far achieved over 7+ years of experience in the field.
Things I am thankful for will tell you more about me…
my husband. He’s my best friend and my #1 fan. He celebrates all my wins with me and he’s always there for me when things aren’t so bright + shiny! To me …he is the most caring person in the world. My life wouldn’t be complete without him.
my parents. I’m thankful to be the daughter of two very loving, supportive people. My parents enabled me to experience many things, regardless of how much they sometimes worried. They gave me everything they possibly could … and even some things they probably couldn’t. I am thankful for my parents who taught me about hard work and passion in equal parts. I believe that they are two of the hardest working people on the planet! I adore them unconditionally.
my sisters. I am thankful for my sisters who know me in a way that nobody else can. Only my sisters can cheer me up when I am sad – even if they made me sad in the first place! My two little fish mean more to me than anything else. A sister is a forever friend. ~Author Unknown
my friends. Unfortunately – actually fortunately – I don’t have a large number of close friends, but I do know there are a lot of good people, near and far, who I can count on, who care about me, and who want only the best for me. Even though I only have a handful of extremely close friends I know that I can count on them for anything.
travelling. I am very thankful that I’ve travelled so much. I believe that visiting other countries has broadened my horizons and made me a much more motivating and considerate person. There’s still a lot of the world that I haven’t seen – I am however looking forward to exploring the rest of it – sooner or later I know I will see everything my heart desires.
So on that note, I’m thankful that our world is so big! I was able to visit so many amazing places such as London, Paris, Boudreaux, Madrid, Barcelona, Nice, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Lake Como, Milan, Cinque Terre, Rome, Venice, Tokyo, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Budva, Frankfurt, New York, Denver… and in Australia of course Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Hamilton Island and Darwin – I live in Sydney – but I haven’t quiet come around to ‘exploring it’. One day I will hop on the red ‘Bus About’ tour – I always wonder where they take all the tourist in Sydney.
accomplishing goals. To one scale or another, I tend to follow through on things. I thrive on having goals to accomplish and I am happy about the fact I’ve been able to achieve a number of them.
i’m thankful that my future looks so bright and all the wonderful people I love to share it with.
i’m also thankful for this blog and everyone I hope to meet through blogging!
Majority of my blog will reflect what I have done, what I will be doing, where I’ve been, and where I will be going, what I believe . think . dream .
Why a blog you might ask? I am becoming a blogger because I believe in the big picture. I hope my work has an effect by being seen. I am placing my work to the ultimate test. I certainly do hope that my blog will be read by a few more people other than my family + friends. Only time will tell.
After several years of being a photo junkie I noticed that I come across a lot of great inspiration. Whether it is architecture, interior, fashion, travel, food – you name it! I figured… Why not share this with everyone else? It’s a lot more fun that way. Everyone needs inspiration for whatever it is they are trying to achieve. I hope you can get some inspiration from my blog! You will be able to experience firsthand my addiction to beautiful photos that inspire me in every way – every day!
