Susan Unger and Ona Villier are mother and daughter — both designers who cover the fields of fashion, home furnishing, graphic design and art direction. Originally from Pennsylvania and Menorca, respectively, they have lived and drawn inspiration from such varied places as New York, Barcelona, Florence, Texas, and Menorca, as well as many other places around the world.

This blog was created as a place to discuss the life, style and beauty of the Mediterranean — or things and places that even without being Mediteranean, bring us there.  In our mind’s eye we have Menorca (Spain), one of the smallest or less concurred Balearic islands, where we lived for many years, and which we still call “Home”.

As designers and lovers of nature, beauty and art, this blog is our platform to discuss creative solutions, objects, places and people we find interesting, as well as colors and textures we find inspiring.
