Kitchen, cooking and Moi~

I love to cook and I love to decorate, and I especially enjoy the ostentatiously presented plates.  It doesn't matter if the food is palate satisfying but right before you fork in the plate, it has to be eye pleasing first, agree?? 

Nothing about today's post is real food nor cooking, it's just I am still doing my house interior decorating, particularly the great room by the kitchen.  Since I am very attentive to details, I realized that the inlay wall by the sofa is lacking a depth. Right now, I am waiting for a grid pattered wall paper by Johnathan Adler to arrive. I want the space next to my kitchen to be a little 60s, vintage-y looking, decadent furnished, but before that, I am hoping the wall paper will work. ha~

The wall is just too white to my likie at this moment.....

The kitchen is complete but what's next to it is the place where I seem not too happy about the look just yet.

Where the wild things are?

Jewelry is women's best friend, for me, especially ostentatiously ornamented jewelry.  Evidences proved that flashy jewelry not just exists in modern era, but way Before Christ was born. The ancient society loves animals and they wish to empower themselves with all sorts of mysterious magic, should it be from the mother nature, from unknown spirit, or even animals, ancient people adorn themselves with excess accessories.  I stumbled Legion of Honer museum today while hiking around the neighborhood of Lands End trails in San Francisco. I love the grand front entrance and the miniature pyramid which mimics the one outside of Musee' du Louvre in Pairs. I am also swooned by those golden animal jewelry from 4th Century B. C. exhibited in the museum. They are not only the symbol of almighty power but also the inspirational making of modern jewelry. 

I was lucky that I found a pair of tiger eye/horn necklace by Iosselliani this season and love its loud details. They are automatically a statement piece and a statement for saying I am fashion-forward, right?
