If you happen to be in Krakow and looking for modern kitchen items -- like these colorful dishes -- in a town filled with old-fashioned tourist shops and shopping mall chain stores, duck into LuLu Living, a cool, laid-back modern concept store/café on the edge of the Kazimierz district of this southern Polish city. Or check out their website for a little bit of long-distance inspiration.
