During a recent trip to NYC, I visited a place that had been high on my list for ages. Over a year ago I came across Bellocq, a tea atelier located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I stumbled over this tea company online and gasped in awe of the photos taken of their perfectly curated tea room. Two weeks ago, I finally paid a visit and cannot stop dreaming about this space: it was truly magical. That moment, when you walk into a room and immediately feel at ease. When you are taken over by an overwhelming feeling of tranquility, happiness and complete inspiration. This place is perfect and I just have to share some quick snapshots I took with my phone. The colours, textures, and nature were a dream: While in this beautiful space, I picked up a copy of the book Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers by Leonard Koren. A brilliant read and reason why I can't shake this space from my mind. If in Brooklyn, please visit Bellocq! Particularly if you're a tea enthusiast, it will not disappoint! - Camille
