Pink and chocolate inspirations | 3 blogs and a mood board 2008.01.08 edition

oh joy! : garden rooms : yanko designThe unified element for my weekly blog spotlight is simply brilliant design. As a bonus, you can recycle the color scheme. Even if there is a lot of pink, the result does not feel too girly.

After the holiday break, there were a lot of posts to choose from. Considering that must produce a unified board, I feel that Oh Joy!, Garden Rooms and Yanko Design published the most interesting posts from a stylish living and entertaining point of view. Enjoy!

1 | Oh Joy!

You can resist these verrine desserts from Spanish baker Bubo, they are simply amazing. It is certainly not me a dessert lover like me. Hey honey, when do we visit Barcelona?

From left to right, these delicacies are:

  • Rhubarb glass: a strawberry cream, a cheese mousse, a rhubarb compote and strawberry gelatin topped with a tiny strawberry french macaron
  • Hawaii glass: a bittersweet chocolate cream, a lime gel, a macadamia nut streusel and a praline mousse
  • Litchi glass: a light litchi cream and brilliance of strawberry and raspberry a la vanilla

I second Oh Joy! taste and declare them the tiniest perfections.

2 | Garden Rooms

On her Fresh Flowers post, Robyn of Garden Rooms showcased simple modern flower arrangements from Vogue Living. The latest trend seems to immerge your flowers completely inside the clear glass vase. Take note, it is so easy to reproduce. Soft pinks, oranges and yellows make a stunning combination.

3 | Yanko Design

I spot on Yanko Design this unique concept for a takeout drink tray. Designed by Sonyun Kang, the idea behind Bundle Box is that you easily carry two drinks and napkins with one hand. Better yet, this drink carrier takes less storage space that the standard tray currently used by the food industry.

I was unable to find more on the materials used. If we can roll on the Bundle Box when not in use, I could see myself carrying one on my day purse. The ultimate green solution is a reusable solution. Nonetheless, I feel that Bundle Box answers a need on the market. Definitely a clever design!
