WELCOME: Rooms and Words |
September 2, 2011
August is over. It resisted, screeching, but it passed. Where we live, it’s almost unbelievable fall will soon be here. Fall for us is longing- longing for something tangible, for a wall that responds to the touch, for a rug that can envelope a foot, for a book you can dive into for days on end.
Fall is also beginnings. Beginnings push themselves into September, not willing to start in summer. That’s what happened to us at Rooms and Words. But August was kind to us, and let us dream up fall while it still reigned. Here are the results.
A virtual home runs the risk of feeling alienated, cold. Without a “real” armchair on which to cuddle and a real mug from which to sip real coffee. These photos are our visualization of our very real virtual home at Rooms and Words.
And that is the way we feel. Rooms and Words is – simply put – constructed of rooms, words, people and guests. We believe the internet is a never ending conversation (at least the parts of it we like), and this is what we hope our blogazine to become – a home for lively conversation on everything design and lifestyle.
The historical train station compound in Tel Aviv (HaTachana in Hebrew) was a natural home for this photo shoot. Its tiles, doors, staircases and even the row of cinema chairs we found there were not in the least a mere props, but no doubt the stars of the session. Their co-performers were all lovingly collected by us or by a series of passionate boutique owners, listed below, from all over the world.
We will go into details in a future post, but for now we just want to say how lucky and grateful we feel to have you here. Please stay around. If you feel like it’s a little overwhelming, we made a special guide for you.
A heartfelt thank you goes to:
