Cécile Figuette’s home in Paris

Cécile Figuette's home in Paris

Cécile Figuette is a french designer whose company Bien Fait (“Well Done”) makes rad wallpaper. so it’s no surprise that her home in Paris, an old workshop turned loft, is superbly creative and pretty damn inspiring. i still love those Berber shag rugs, even though they are everywhere these days. anyone seen affordable ones in Cape Town? send me leads please! i also like the idea of painting a vintage credenza white, might have to steal that idea.

Ron van der Ende

how amazing are these sculptures by Dutch artist Ron van der Ende! i’ve never been much of a sculpture fan, mostly because i just wouldn’t know where i would put it. and a lot of the stuff you see these days is just weeeeeird. but these are so awesome, and so beautifully made out of salvaged wood. i absolutely love the pieces of wood, made of wood.

Pale Swimwear

Pale Swimwear

it’s that time of year in South Africa where some women (aka: me) are starting to sweat about the impending summer. they are scrolling through Kayla Istine’s feed, and thinking about maybe doing a juice diet, and keeping one eyeball on the swimwear trends. it’s companies like Pale Swimwear who give me hope, making beautiful pieces that would suit a range of body types. whether you’re into high-waisted bikinis or slick one-pieces, they’ve got you covered.

Brian Calvin

i won’t hesitate to say that Brian Calvin is one of my favourite artist discoveries in a while. wow, i love his pieces SO MUCH. i don’t know what it is about them, maybe i see myself in these huge, graphic, goofy looking portraits – some of the girls are almost on the edge of tears in many of his paintings. they are so strange, and i love strange.

JULY

miss-moss-july

a new music mix! and just in the nick of time, as July is almost over. let that sink in: july. is. almost. over. that means we are in the latter half of 2015 and before we know it, it will be CHRISTMAS!

Lorien Stern

Lorien Stern ceramics

when i first saw these ceramic shark wall hangings by Lorien Stern i thought, damn – wish i had a kid to buy these for. but then i realised i don’t need to have or even be a child to partake in the joy of a sweet ceramic shark head! i would totally hang these in my home. or maybe a tiger? or perhaps a watermelon cat? yep, a watermelon cat would happily sit on my desk and keep me company on even the most boring work day. check her other goodies out on Etsy.
