Alexander Terekhov

i spend quite a lot of time on etsy and other shopping sites looking for the perfect floral skirt, so i couldn’t help but highlight the floral pieces from the fall winter 2012/13 lookbook of russian designer Alexander Terekhov. the entire collection is quite wonderful, but there’s just something about these women swanning around paris (i think it’s paris?) in blooming skirts and dresses that’s bound to make all the ladies out there rather envious.

Anna di Prospero

Anna di Prospero is an Italian photographer who has been working on a self-portrait series called With You, where she appears alongside family members and friends. i like that even though it’s a self-portrait series she isn’t necessarily the star of the images – but the focus if rather about her relationship with these important people in her life. however you may interpret it, the images themselves are absolutely beautiful – with an amazing rich colour palette that runs through the entire series.

Fantastic Frank

if you’re like me you probably like settling down with a cup of coffee and the weekend newspaper on a sunday morning and flip straight to the property section where you play the always fun game if i had a billion rand / dollars / pounds which house would i buy?

Matisse & Me

“I wouldn’t mind turning into a vermilion goldfish.” – Henri Matisse

my top 10 lists are always changing – top 10 bands i want to see live (daft punk & arcade fire are usually in there), top 10 hottie actors (hello jon hamm, hello javier bardem), top 10 foods i would choose as my last meal (that is a particularly tough one) …but some of my top 10 famous artists are pretty easy to nail down: gauguin, van gogh, odilon redon, cezanne, rousseau, chagall, picasso and matisse amongst others. all at their most colourful periods.
