Nendo’s designs are near perfection. Minimal, playful, functional. Beautiful.
Something magical happened this past weekend.
I stepped out onto my backyard to wrestle with the giant puppy. And then I found this.
It was just lying there, on the grass. Gold.
I don’t know where it came from, and I don’t know what I did to deserve this. But it’s mine now, and I love it so much.
My eventual plan is to mount it above my bed, like this-
I think I’ll need some reinforcements (both in materials and bodies) to help mount this beauty, so in the meantime, it’s sitting above one of my bookcases, with a string of lights tangling through the branches.

Sometimes I imagine what it will be like to build a home together with my future husband. I think about going to the flea market together on the weekends for secondhand furniture, with overambitious plans set by overestimated expectations of our DIY restoration skills. I think about warm dinner parties together with our loved friends, using makeshift chairs, makeshift cutlery, makeshift space, because the things we have can not capacitate the things we want to give.
I think about living together, praying together, reading together, eating together, sleeping together. And it makes me feel so happy.
If there’s one thing I can choose about the interior of my future house, it would be white wooden floorboards in the bedroom. I love the rustic look of them, how they make a room feel so cozy and comforting. They brighten up so wonderfully by the morning sunlight, and create a fresh, open, and airy sense of space. I like the thought of walking across the white wood with my bare feet.
Have a wonderful weekend!
