I love chandeliers and I’m so happy that they have been back in fashion this last decade. I have posted about chandeliers before on this blog but here’s one that was new to me, found on one of the upper floor lobbies at Shinmaru Building in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district. I just love the effect of that black plastic!
My mother always said: “Once is None, Twice is Always”, and I’ll take her advice when it comes to judging this emerging trend in Japanese donut shops: donut decorations! If you happen to sell something that in itself is both colorful and with a distinctive shape, why not make it the centerpiece of your shop decoration theme, as in these two donut shops! One of them is in Omotesando in Tokyo, and the other one is in the Red Brick Warehouse down in Yokohama. When I was a kid I used to day dream about living in a house decorated like this. I still do, especially when I am hungry. Enjoy!
Another table set up from the show in Yokohama I visited last month. It just looks too fantastic! While I wonder if I’ll ever be able to keep a home where settings like this don’t look too much out of place, I sure wish I could! This setting was placed in the dining room of the old Italian consular building in Yamate, a part of a the old foreign enclave of Yokohama. Enjoy!
