The amazing Highett House pictured above is just a small taste of what they're able to achieve. The mix of minimal with contemporary is simply stunning in this space, specially because they feature one of my favorites: Plywood. The color palette is also something to talk about, it makes this home serene and fun at the same time. Bicker Design Studio is clearly doing everything right. See the rounded mirror? Exactly.

Collection: Breather
I've been struggling with anxiety attacks lately, I guess it's partly because of my dad's recent loss and another tiny part might be because life has been getting quiet hard for almost everyone in Brazil. Last week I had an episode while I was sleeping - that has never happened to me and it scared me to no end. I dreamed that I was crying about my dad and couldn't wake myself up, once I could open my eyes and feel sort-of awake, I realized I was physically crying and gasping for air. That moment made me realize that I need to get back on my feet, emotionally, mentally and every way possible... I need some time to be able to be patient with myself and regain the focus that lost from the time that my dad got ill until he passed away.

As you know, I'm in the homestretch of writing my book and I've now understood that practical things that I used be able to finish within seconds are taking me much longer because my heart is still very heavy and my enviroment is less than helping me through the healing process. So, I've decided to give myself a week off blogging while I focus on finishing up my book for you and so that I can complete projects with clients and sponsors and be able to give myself 100% to the people that are putting their trust in my even through these difficult times.

I can't thank you enough for always cheering me up and making my day with your kind comments and messages. I'll see come back next week, hopefully with better news.
