My Heraklion with Mapiful

If you happen to know me then you probably know my deepest love for the city that I was born in and living for the biggest part of my life. Heraklion, Crete, the fourth biggest city in Greece, is not a beauty of the usual kind. It has neither the picturesque allure of Chania nor the big, throbbing life of the capital Athens. Yet it is a city that will capture your heart when you least expect it; always something to catch your attention while wandering in the old city streets, hidden views of the sea horizon popping up through the aged modern buildings, buzz from the cramped cafes and taverns, a mix of a neighborhood ease and the vibrancy of a large city.
For that matter, I had no second thoughts when I was contacted by Mapiful to create a map poster with my favorite place. Through their site, you can zoom into any place your heart desires and create your own personalized map to decorate your home with.

White tiles countertop

Kitchen with white tiles countertop in Hotel Droog in Amsterdam via Marie-Stella-Maris

I admit that, although I am aware that tiles are a cool countertop option for a kitchen, I have always been afraid of using them for me or my clients. The reason is quite simple; grout. How do you keep all this grout clean and pretty with everyday use? I really need your feedback if you happen to have an experience with a tiled countertop. On the other hand, I come across kitchen designs like the above and I'm that close to change my mind. The all white tile grout combo looks stunning despite a bit intimidating. And the whole island is covered in tiles yet doesn't look industrial or laboratorian at all. What do you think?
