This week's discoveries and links, starting with:
01 Meli Melo: Established in April 2005 by Melissa Del Bonoasa, in London, UK, Meli Melo is a British handbag label, with Italian heritage and lasting quality. Today, the company designs, develops and produces luxury leather handbags for premium retailers and discerning customers worldwide—including Olivia Palermo.
02 A.House, by No Coffee Architects: This intriguing project included the careful restoration of an 18th Century Colonial House and the refurbishment of its stable buildings into contemporary and functional offices. The heritage of the estate was carefully preserved and taken care of, with the restoration of the existing wood structure and addition of modern day elements. Indeed, even the new mechanical, electrical, AC, data services, and equipment have been carefully concealed to retain the authenticity and spatial quality of these beautiful historic structures.
03 Catherine, of La Mémoire Vive, shared a favorite traditional dessert: clafoutis
04 Amanda, of Lace & Tea, featured an inspirational industrial pink loft
05 Via Notcot, a beautiful classic piece: the all-new Hermès pocket watch
