Balloon Rooms

Balloon Rooms 650x520 Balloon Rooms
The simplest inventions can make life so much more interesting. What do you think when you hear the word “balloon”? I am sure we all remember back to a time in our childhood when we were inhaling the helium from balloons to make our voices squeaky. And we can not forget all of those new balloon animal pets that we got at the local fair, the circus, or at birthday parties for those who had parents cool enough to get a clown to show up.

But, how many of us could ever imagine using a balloon to fill up an entire room, transforming the look of it? I know I have seen some huge balloons in the past, but this really takes the grand prize. Penique Productions, an artist collective from Barcelona, Spain that was founded in the year 2007, using gigantic plastic balloons to completely change the look of any room.

Brooklyn Grooming

Designed by Alfredo Ortiz Catedral | Country: Mexico

“When I created the Brooklyn Grooming identity I got my inspiration from Victorian barber shops and nautical antiques. I wanted to reflect the  “apothecary aesthetic” that recalls classic and timeless elegance that suggests a simpler time when grooming was paramount in our society to all men.”

Say hello to your nightmares: Mexico’s island of decaying dolls

Say hello to your nightmares: Mexico’s island of decaying dolls

Xochimilco might be the creepiest place on Earth. This man-made island is in a southern borough of Mexico City and named La Isla de las Muñecas (The Island of the Dolls). Except these dolls are decaying. They’re hanging from clotheslines. Their skin is scabbed and their eyes stare at you. Or so they say. Legend has it that in 1950, a little girl drowned in the canal here and her spirit began haunting the place. To protect himself, the owner of the proerty Don Julian Santana began collecting dolls. According to Vocativ, the oldest doll is still there, ‘hanging in a shed by the entrance. From afar, it looks like the decaying corpse of a child.’ Fair enough.

Welcome to San Pedro Sula, the most violent city on earth

Welcome to San Pedro Sula, the most violent city on earth

With a murder rate of 169 per 100,000 people in 2011, San Pedro Sula was named the world’s most violent city in a study by Mexico’s Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice. Inmates have controlled Honduras’ 24 prisons ‘since the state gave up on rehabilitating convicts’ and arms and drug trafficking have ‘flooded the country’ to make matters worse.

These haunting pictures from Business Insider show just how violent this city can be, with Honduran journalists being assassinated, mass shootings at the airport, and drug labs being uncovered (where more than half of all cocaine seizures in Central America occur in El Salvador and Honduras).

Contemporary Mexican artist, Saner

Contemporary Mexican artist, Saner

Mexican street artist Saner creates incredible, colourful, detailed ink drawings, sculptures and acrylic paintings, many of which end up as dramatic murals all over the world. His is so highly regarded now that his latest exhibition, El Cenit Del Venado, at Fifty24MX Gallery in Mexico City was already almost completely sold out after just the opening weekend. And all that despite the rough economy of the country. Marvelous.

Mexican street food culture – Tacombi

Mexican street food culture Tacombi1 Mexican street food culture   Tacombi

Taste the traditional flavours of Mexican homestyle food of Tacombi. The New York based Mexican restaurant was born on the beaches of the Yucatan, where Tacombi began selling tacos out of a converted VW bus in Playa del Carmen. Now the bus is parked in a cool looking place on Elizabeth street, which looks like a garage as well as a cantina.

The casual looking restaurant has a distinct Mexican feel to it. From the moment you see the restaurant, you’ll see some nice features such as the signage around the building. Inside the taqueria there are lovely pieces of Mexican graphics, typography and advertising dotted around. The foldable chars and tables add to the Mexican street food atmosphere.

Have you been to the Tacombi at Fonda Nolita?

Romita – Architecture

Romita is a new restaurant in Mexica city with a wonderful architecture. indeed, it mixes vintage and modern look. The ground looks like an old train station from the colonialist era. In fact, we can see the skeletal metal frame coupled with plants creeping out from the walls like Romita was some ancient ruins, forgotten for decades. Upstairs, the design is much more modern with a glass-fronted top portion as nowadays business buildings. Romita serves Mexican dishes with a traditional flavour, check out the menu at romitacomedor.com

Going Up

Next stop, Mexico City, and to the restaurant Romita Comedor, in the La Roma neighbourhood. Romita describes itself as being modelled on a train station having both a vintage and a modern look, and nowhere is that more evident that in the external architecture, with a bottom half from colonial times, and a glass-fronted top portion very much the new floor on the block.

Inside though, the upper level has a different character. The glass disappears (it would do, being transparent) leaving the skeletal metal frame, which coupled with the plants creeping out from the walls and the vintage wood and tiles gives the place a nicely ruined sort of feel, as though Romita has been rediscovered after decades forgotten in a jungle somewhere. There’s nothing ruined about the finish at Romita – everything is spick and span and the restaurant’s branding makes for an interesting wallpaper pattern behind the loft bar. Food-wise Romita serves Mexican dishes with a traditional flavour, with the Taco del Rio highly recommended for seafood lovers.
