This is one of my favorite pieces: Looking For Love. It’s such a beautiful mix of my memories of Hopper, Chagall and Jerome K. Jerome.
My first interiors actually were very close copies of the job he was doing than. It wasn’t easy to get customers for this kind of interior in Latvia, and I’s very lucky to have realized works.
Time has passed and I’ve change my approach to interiors, but even now I’ve kept deep respect to this Bristish architect, and consider him as one of my Teachers.
His cookbook Living and Eating that came out 2001 , I bought mainly because of the pictures of his private interior. But today, 10 years later, it’s the most used cookbook in our home.
Today I made Chicken and White Wine Stew with Gremolata. It’s wonderful.

Recently I’m very upset with quality of expensive brands. I already wrote about my experience with Isabel Marant. I find dissapointing quality of Max Mara Margaux Bag and 2 of knops of my Balenciaga jacket broke down after a month. I could continue, but
today I have to admit that I had to take back my Prada Aviator broques: shoe soles just don’t held together.
Since I’m educated as a designer, I could tell this from the beginning: cork and rubber on wedge that is shaped as Aviators wouldn’t hold together even on the prototype.( I guess, there wasn’t any prototype) But I really wanted to own these shoes …
Anyway, the only clothes that I don’t have any problem with, are my old clothes from Prada Sport. I guess, I shoud keep being sporty.
