Using textured and colored glass. Along with matte brass or matte nickel, the fixture becomes a geometric sculpture based on one of Malevich’s monochromatic paintings. The collection is manufactured and produced by the company Roll & Hill. Be Inspired ......

Health Tip: Making naturally Fruit flavored Water with Fruit, Herbs & Veggies

I try to drink more water as I would like to loose some overweight. This morning I saw this interesting blogpost on the website ‘Among Other Things’. They show naturally fruit flavored water bottles filled with colorful fruits and herbs. They look so inviting! You can make this water bottle with any number of herbs, spices, fruits and veggies.
Drinking a lot of water is very good for hydration, a better digestion, appetite control etc. and it tastes delicious! Besides that it is also relatively inexpensive to make and practically calorie-free. Two of my favourites are: Strawberry, Lemon & Mint and Grapefruit, Rosemary & Pomegranate. Hope this blogpost is giving you inspiration. 

Thank you for reading this blogpost.

Top 10 Colors of Fall 2016: Predictions by Pantone
Be inspired by the Pantone fashioncolors for Fall 2016. According to the Pantone Color Institute, Fall 2016 color palette is a unity of strength, confidence and complexity led by the Blue family and followed by earth tones and exuberant pops of vibrant colors. All of them working well to struggle against the contemporary turbulent life and to bring about a tad more tranquility and optimism around. 
1. Riverside – Pantone 17-4028
. 2. Airy Blue – Pantone 14-4122. 3. Sharkskin – Pantone 17-3914. 4. Aurora Red – Pantone 18-1550. 5. Warm Taupe – Pantone 16-1318. 6. Dusty Cedar – Pantone 18-1630. 7. Lush Meadow – Pantone 18-5845. 8. Spicy Mustard – Pantone 14-0952. 9. Potter’s Clay – Pantone 18-1340. 10. Bodacious – Pantone 17-3240.

Two colors in particular are poised to dominate our homes and our closets for Fall 2016 — the new blues, Riverside and Airy Blue. 
According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, she said: 'The blue hues are a continuation of the soothing, calming effect of 2016’s colors of the year. If you look at this season's entire palette, the idea of comforting blues coming to the top of the list again'. Below you will find several fashion color reports. I saw lots of beautiful colors for this season. Just enjoy the Beauty of Colors!
