A few years ago I moved into a new home and, of course, when I unpacked and placed everything in a new corner and cabinet or any other storage space, I could not find anything in time. But it was only then that I realized there are zillions of little things you need around the house. And one of them is the rolling pin. That , of course, if you want to bake something every now and then. I know it is a lot easier to dine out, but homemade pies are so tasty!
Well, to my surprise, it is very hard to find a rolling pin to buy on the internet (yes, I admit, I do most of my shopping online since I am very busy and seldom go shopping in real stores) and I guess that happens because they are made of wood, most of the times manufactured by local handcraftsmen and sold in local fairs. But I did find this classic Shaker Rolling Pin that can be made of cherry, maple or walnut and bought for the price of $75. Classic and simple, but very useful.

What you see here is a very stylish holiday home, built in 2010. The team that worked at this project was not small by any means. It was composed of Architecture Bureau Ltd that had to work in collaboration with Evan Mayo, BArch ANZIA, Blue Wallace Surveyors Ltd, Caledonian Design Ltd, Stewart Rose Builders Ltd, Intelectric Ltd, Fernlea Joinery Ltd and Hamish Lane Landscapes Ltd. Together they managed to create this amazing house in Mt Maunganui, New Zealand.
It was designed as a holiday home so the design fully reflects this. The house provides great flexibility for the extended family holidays. Even though it was designed as a single bedroom holiday home, it also includes three additional sleeping areas for additional family and guests. The original bedroom and the open plan living areas are oriented towards the ocean view where they can also get plenty of natural light.

When you think of Morocco you immediately picture the ruins, the sandy beach, the camels and the traditional houses. It’s true that this is how most of that area looks like, but there are modern adaptations too. Take for example this spacious house. It’s located close to Sidi Kaouk’s long sandy beach and the surrounding landscape is full of history.
This is a large house with plenty of space for a large family. The exterior design is rather simple and compact. The house has a geometrical shape with clear and clean lines and small windows. Because of the location and the changing and harsh weather, the house needed to avoid the heat of the sun and to try to insulate the interior as much as possible.
