I know this is not a fashion blog but I just love those pictures by Robert Jaso. What do you do after becoming one of France's highest-paid male models? You become a fashion photographer, of course. Or that's what Robert Jaso did, anyways, and by looking at the fruits of his work, we think his change of career was a wise choice.

Today when we have explored the world of wallpapers, other trends starts to take form. As putting parts of ceramics on the walls. A lovely idea since you can make so many tactile textures out of this fantastic material. Those are created by Jennifer Prichard Design. She creates porcelain installations in which individual porcelain pieces are installed directly onto walls, all pieces are handmade in their studio.

The wall behind the counter and the counter itself are covered with white tiles to give the space a bakery feeling. The shelves are simplified waffle shapes made out of coated foam. The cutaways in the waffle shapes proudly present colourful shoes. This creates a delicious contrast while a mirror behind every cut-away shows us the other side of each shoe. And to top it all, a special waffle perfume will make your feet hungry.
