elias & theresa: things i like right now

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.

marni & missoni

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?

Kodachrome…

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

take ivy

for a while there i was a bit obsessed with menswear blogs. perhaps that is the wrong term for them. men’s things blogs? you know – jjjjound, them thangs, haw-lin… i had to downscale my subscription to these manly pursuits because i am a lady, after all. not really – there are just too many pictures to keep up with.

adam simpson & the baftas

i don’t know how i hadn’t seen these until now. adam simpson was commissioned to do an interpretation of the five best film nominees for the brochure artwork of this year’s BAFTAS (which was on 13 february) – um, WOW!

Kate: Things I like right now

kate is another cool local who i know through twitter and the relatively small but quickly expanding cape town blogging community. she has a new venture called the rah rah room that you capetonians should definitely check out, hand picked vintage & international high street labels available to browse & buy from the comfort of her lounge (champagne included.)
