Mocca & Me weekend quick list - week 47/2011

My dears! It's is friday and the weekend is finally here! I have a long list of things I need to do this weekend, but I don't know if I'll get around to do it all. I am definitely going out to dinner and a night at the casino tomorrow with friends. And on sunday I'm going furniture hunting with a friend. Have a happy weekend!

Big kiss and take care,
Natascha xoxo

Eye candy
Isn't this place just purdy :-) Simple and chic. I think I have a thing for velvet fabrics because I'm liking the cushions a lot. And those chairs in bamboo-look are very nice. But what I like the most are those curtains. What a great idea to combine different fabrics and colours like that. Very beautiful.

I found a website by Dutch film artist selfcontrolfreak where he made some mindblowing interactive little films. Too cool not to share. You'll be amazed. Let me know what you think.

Free stuff
If you're like me you love free stuff. At Some Prints you can download and print high-res quality A4 prints for free!

Cool bohemian home in dark grey and white with purple and blue accents

This Danish home is a beautiful cool bohemian refuge. I love the white and dark grey basic combined with the purple and blue accents. It's feminine without being girly and it's effortlessly stylish. My favorite items are the velvet blue dinner chairs! I can definitely see myself living here.

Lay a rubber Dude on your floor! Super cool recycled rubber carpets

I have something super cool to share with you! It is called the Dude and it is a modular system of recycled pieces of rubber. The individual pieces are shaped like flower that slip into eachother to make a carpet or (bath)math in any shape you want, as big as you want. You can make your own design and change it as many times as you want. What is even more cool about the Dude is that is made out of inner truck tires, giving them a second life. And the Dude is easy in maintenance too, just wash with water and soap. The Dude is designed by Dutch designer Manon Juliette who you might know of her leather Feliz carpets. Want to know more about the Dude? Want to design and buy your own Dude? Visit the website
