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 – intimate & personal, mimosas & pies, dancing in the backyard… not to mention Kristen’s beautiful photography. i could barely pick my favourites, be sure to check out the entire wedding.

Gorman

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

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, who specialise in hand painted patterns for your kid’s walls.

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 to choose from – so it’s a pretty cool option for people who are on a budget and don’t have the luxury of hiring a designer to whip up their wedding invitations.

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) – but also an array of beautiful illustrative work and good ol’ mid-century design.

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 decor wise.
