just in case you felt the need to look at a bunch of beautiful ice pools, like i did.
… which indirectly made me think of this douglas adams quote
the work of heather smith jones makes me want to break out my dusty & little used watercolours immediately.
my brother the architect (mentioned in this post) has 444 folders with 5,700 pictures on his computer sorted by name & date of rad architects, houses & buildings. i forced him to give me a copy (not really, he gave it to me out of the goodness of his heart) and now i’m going to share ten of my favourites.
i first discovered elias & theresa through my prolific flickr browsing, and began admiring their very beautiful photostream and blog orange juice etc. i featured their woodsy landscape photographs, too. theresa and i decided to do a list swap – i contributed a top ten list to their blog and they did a combined things i like right now list in return. BOOM! ps: their lovely home was recently featured on design*sponge.
i haven’t been covering the fall shows lately, mainly because i already overdosed so heavily on the new york & london fashion weeks. but i have been keeping an eye on them – and paid particular attention to the details at marni & missoni’s collections in milan. i have always had a soft spot for these two italian design houses, mostly because they are the favourites of my great friend amy who has the best taste of anyone i know (look out for her ‘things i like right now’ later this month.) so these are for you amz. this winter will be all about colour, are you okay with that?
You give us those nice bright colors, you give us the greens of summers / Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, oh yeah! / I got a Nikon camera , I love to take a photograph / So Mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away
here is the second part of my period drama / street style colour comparison series over at le projet d’amour. man, i really enjoyed doing these! i just finished watching the new upstairs downstairs, which was such a hit for the bbc that it is set to return in 2012 with 6 more episodes. recommended viewing if you miss downton abbey.
