coffee art – Giulia Bernardelli

So life lately has been up and down. Illness, injuries and general ball juggling has kept me quiet for a while. Hopefully August will be kinder than July was! However, coffee has been a good friend. Not sure about you, but I cannot even contemplate the day without my first freshly brewed cup, briskly followed by another. I take mine black so it was a joy to see a creative lady take her espresso to another level. We all know coffee art – those artfully scribbled drawings that arrive in your latte at your local coffee shop…is it a bird? is it a heart? no, it’s a cat! – but Giulia Bernardelli creates her coffee art in an enduringly more avant garde manner.


I love that she styles the tipped over cup into the photograph.

“My future starts when I wake up every morning. Every day I find something creative to do with my life” Miles Davis.


Sometimes she even paints with the dregs in the bottom of the cup. Why not.

Boutique hotels are so much more interesting than the large generic chain hotels, don’t you agree? The bespoke touches and creative design features make your stay enriching and inspiring. If I find myself in Copenhagen, I’d like to stay at Hotel SP34.
