. . . . . . . . . . .

i recently visited cafeand for the first time, located on redchurch street in shoreditch. it’s a nice spot for coffee & a snack, with a few simple housewares and good magazines for sale.  i had a slice of greek watermelon pie – it was so unique and really tasty.  (i’ve got the recipe, and i’m hoping to make it at home.  i’ll tell you more about it then.)

the best part? they are selling a reproduction of the couch in the photographer’s flat from antonioni’s film, blow-up.  that photo studio/flat is definitely one of my all-time favorite movie interiors.

    Oh, how I do love Blow Up…the look of it…the interiors, to be sure, but also the fashion…the dresses, hose, shoes, color pairings…particularly the girls with whom Hemmings has a bit of a romp early one. A favorite film of mine.
