Clean Danish design at its best. This Grill from Eva Solo. I love to BBQ outside when the weather here in Holland allows us to do so. When not in use for grilling, this porcelain bowl can either serve as handy food container, e.g. for salad or fruit, and even converts into an unusual outdoor fireplace.

Via Marta Stewart I came across an entrepreneur called Shanda Chitmento, based in St. Thomas. She owns a company called Sugar Apple Design it is a fun, unique, adorable, and eco-conscious clothing line. She sells baby, kids, ladies tees tanks l-sleeve and accessories. She started the company a few years ago, the idea was to create botanical designs that represent the Caribbean, but that idea is evolving into plants, flowers, insects, animals, landmarks etc. A portion of every item sold is donated to saving our planet and all that lives on it. Isn't this a fabulous Island to start your business? Well done shanda. Would like to hear more from your great adventure!!

Happy weekend to all readers around the world! I'm glad to see that this website attracks more readers every day. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for Urban Style Vibes. This weekend I will be working in my own home on some redecoration and cleaning. The weather in Holland is very bad today so I'm happy to cocoon a litlle bit. Although I would like to give you some summer inspiration from Dutch Designer Piet Boon. I love his beautiful outdoor furniture.
