Funcionando igualmente como Atelier para as áreas criativas (design, ilustração, pós-produção de vídeo e webdesign), esta casa bem-humorada encontra-se de portas abertas a dois passos de Lisboa.
A visitar!

Ever wondered where books come from?
Well, it seems they have their own London-esque town, where everything is possible and made from paper.
A lovely short film celebrating 4th Estate Publisher’s 25th Anniversary.

With summertime full on, besides enjoying the glorious sunlight so characteristic of this part of the world (yay!), and also working more closely on my animal welfare and adoption project, i've been been taking the time to read a few books which were postponed in the cooler months.

And speaking of reading material, Harper Collins just launched Harper Perennial Classic Stories, a sixtet of literary classics - Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Wilde, Cather, Melville, and Crane - in pocket book form and a spanking new look by graphic designer Adam Johnson.
Featuring colour blocks and a black and white cutout image of each author, it plays on the image of the writers, giving readers a graphic insight of the person behind the words.

We're excited our new Fauna cushions, by way of the 'Dachshund' one, have made an appearance in the June edition of deco magazine Caras Decoração, where they're described as 'full of colour and the characteristic charm of La Maison de Lola'!

Our soft toys have also been blogged, via Little Catwalk, by You Lool So Fine, a kids fashion design consultancy based in Verona who also has the most gorgeous website.

Being an everyday cyclist, i'm always looking for stylish accessories for my hobby turned mean of transportation.
Launched in 2004, Rapha is my favourite brand when it comes to cycling clothing.
Known for its wonderful and well designed pieces, the collection is made in the finest materials and includes a wide range of products, such as jackets, shorts, jerseys, gloves and shirts.
A complete delight for all fans of the two-wheeled sport, the british brand doesn't stop at the clothing and accesories, but also celebrares the full glory of road racing.

Besides having a UCI-registered team (in partnership with London based Condor Cycles), Rapha also publishes a quarterly magazine called Rouleur, where cycling is portrayed in a truly inspiring and appealing way.
But that's not all. Since 2007, the british brand embarked on a new adventure - Rapha Continental - in which two groups of riders (east coast and west coast) roam through the most epic routes of the United States to show Rapha's commitment to the lost art of cycling.
