Wedding At Home

Kristen Marie Tourtillotte is a wedding photographer based in Seattle who got in touch with me recently to share the wedding of Michelle & Ryan, who got hitched at home amongst their friends, family and pets. i loooooooooove this. everything about it is what i love about small weddings -…

Goodies No.6

having a bluesy monday? some light retail therapy might do the trick. nice things no.6. valentines card from parrott design studio. which reminds me, be sure to check out a mega list of love cards that i compiled over at honey kennedy (just in time for valentines day). beautifully simple…

Gorman

have you seen the new stuff over at australian label Gorman? there’s some seriously fun things happening down under.

Mika & Claire

one of my favourite auction houses Bukowski’s has a new auction coming up called Abstract Possible, the catalogue of which is a delight to browse. i particularly love the work of Mika Tajima and Claire Barclay whose styles are wholly different but whose art i would snap up in a…

Walls

i have come across two Paris based companies in the past week who create beautiful designs for your walls. Minakani Walls is a wallpaper company headed up by Frédéric Bonnin and Cécile Figuette (who are also textile designers) and Bartsch is a decorative painting company run by cousins Gala and Nicolas,…

Love vs. Design

i really like the idea of Love vs. Design where you can choose templates for your wedding stationery, personalise them  and then have them printed yourself (or get them to print for you). this obviously isn’t a new concept, but the fact is that there are some really nice designs…

Covers, etc

Covers etc is one of my favourite flickr streams to browse as it combines my love for vintage, design and, occasionally, salaciousness all into one. there are some seriously saucy book covers over there (admittedly my favourites, most of which i won’t post here due to the boobs factor) -…

Tell her she’s dreamin’

well i sort of have to pinch myself, because i found an apartment! i suppose it’s quite funny considering i was a bit stressed about it in my last post – and i got the place the next day. now i’m just constantly daydreaming about what i’d like to do…

These Things No.33

i’m still in the midst of the exciting yet frustrating process of finding a new apartment. there are so many boxes that i’d like the new place to tick, a budget that requires sticking to and the fact that i’m basically competing with half of cape town’s general population who…

Lucas Maassen & Sons

i love this project by Lucas Maassen. i need some little ones to paint my furniture. Dutch industrial designer Lucas Maassen has been working in conceptual design since 2003 and recently as an ideal father figure he decided to introduce his three Sons to the value of work. For this reason,…

Matthew Kavan Brooks

these typographic prints by Matthew Kavan Brooks are cool. and because they’re available from society6 you can get them as prints, or stretched canvases, or iphone covers, or t-shirts… rad.

Pale Flamingo

i find myself quite drawn to this apartment that was for sale on Alvhem. it’s probably because i’m so used to seeing hundreds upon hundreds of minimalistic white (scandanavian) spaces all over the internet (which i love). the mix of pale pink wallpaper and that amazing green print, along with hints of…

Cabin Porn

i have a few posts in the back of my mind at all times, and one of them was rounding up a collection of amazing huts and cabins i have come across on the internet. well, my job has been done for me – in the form of Cabin Porn,…
