Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Rented A 16th Century Estate In Scotland

We love to always know what our favorite VIPs are up to, to see where and how they’re living and to watch their every move. They probably don’t like as much as we do, but these are the risks of the job. Today we’re going to take a look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s estate from Scotland, without disturbing them in any way.

The couple moved in Scotland while Brad Pitt is working on his new movie Glasgow. They needed to be close so they searched for a place to rent. They found this incredible 16th century towerhouse and they immediately fell in love with it. The mansion, resembling a castle, is located in Ayrshire and it comes with a 10 acre garden filled with trees, flowers and benches. Inside, the atmosphere is very inviting and cozy, just how a home should feel like. The mansion features several bedrooms, two dining rooms and official rooms and it can accommodate up to 18 people. It’s more than the usual family would need, but we’re not talking about usual people.

Impressive Lodge Hair Salon by Suppose Design Office

Architects from Suppose Design Office have created the Lodge hair salon. Located in Hiroshima City, Japan, this salon was designed to remove the general ideas.

The architects create spaces without any stereotypes, they try to go beyond anything you’ve ever imagined. This unique hair salon presents two spaces, one is closed and the other is open in order to meet the demands of both the customers and the workers. The place is divided in three spaces (the waiting, styling and shampooing rooms) with a mirror and shelves. The best thing is that there are no walls, just dividers.

Banana Boys Bottle Stoppers

When two cultures and civilizations come into contact and the person in the middle knows them pretty well and is able to tell the differences and similarities, there is almost every time a positive outcome out of this. So when the Italian designer Stefano Giovannoni met the Asian culture in Taiwan , he saw it as a huge source of inspiration for his works. And not all the things he designed are work of art. Actually I can say most are very practical things that also look very well. For example these funny Banana Boys Bottle Stoppers remind you of the story with the monkeys that had each one hand over the mouth , eyes and ears.

The little monkeys on top of the bottle stoppers have some Chinese features and this is another hind for the inspiration. And only now do we remember the item’s usefulness: cover the bottles that are only half empty so as to protect its contents. These stoppers are perfect for the wine bottles your guests bring at occasions when you only sip the wine and the bottle is almost intact and you want to save it for later. You can find these items for sale for just $38 from Alessi, their manufacturer.

Mr. Smith Chair by Anthony Hartley

I remember those huge candy bars I used to eat as a child. They were coloured in different ways, but they all had the same pattern: long  stripes of red or green with white lines in between. They could be either round and pretty hypnotic or maybe shaped like a cane. But this particular design was the one that drew our attention and made us long for them. So when I saw this unusual Mr. Smith Chair by Anthony Hartley I immediately thought of those candy bars – just as colourful and striped with white.
