Natalie Martin

oh! i really REALLY love these dresses by LA based designer Natalie Martin. they have some really sweet tops & blouses too, and i also really love this short kimono. Natalie is originally from Australia, and is especially inspired by the unique batik prints and embroidery of Bali. all the dresses are made from hand batik printed…

Lorien Stern

when i first saw these ceramic shark wall hangings by Lorien Stern i thought, damn – wish i had a kid to buy these for. but then i realised i don’t need to have or even be a child to partake in the joy of a sweet ceramic shark head! i would totally hang these…

Saskia Diez

i never thought i’d be into pearls, but damn these pieces by German based jewellery line Saskia Diez are beautiful. i especially love this delicate pearl bracelet and the pearl pop rings. there are also plenty of fine gold pieces for the minimalists out there, as well as these bunny & cat keychains which are TOO…

Reformation

i like having options, and Reformation gets that. most all of their dresses and skirts come in a variety of colours or patterns. i have the habit of buying one thing in all the different colours if it is a great fit, so i’d have to be careful if i ever got the opportunity…

Flora

at first glance i couldn’t quite figure out what Flora was – did they make really cool plastic plants? that would be a novel idea. but no, they make really cool posters of plants. if you have a habit of killing plants or if you want to send someone a gift that won’t wither…

Mid Week Distraction No. 25

MID WEEK DISTRAAAAAACTIIIOOOOOOON! (Oprah Voice) i took a bit of a pause in the distractions department because i began feeling pressure to find interesting links every week. so, i am reverting to a more healthy distraction lifestyle – it will still be mid week, but not every week. i want to add up interesting…

26 Letters 26,000 Miles

you’ll probably remember designer & letterer extraordinaire Lauren Hom from her great Daily Dishonesty project from a few years back. Lauren has just launched a series of travel-inspired, hand-lettered posters to help fundraise her dream of a round the world trip: 26 Letters 26,000 Miles. In January 2016, I’m selling all of my belongings, stuffing a few sundresses and…

MétaFormose

i’m giving 10,000,000 points to MétaFormose. doesn’t matter what the points are for. maybe they’re for this coat (or this one!) or this dress. or this skirt. or this shirt. or these shoes. i want basically everything they make – and the best part is that if you order something from them it is custom made…

The Green Box

let me preface this post by saying: imagine having plants covering your entire house. well, this is not a house – but a disused garage turned pavilion. but still! called the Green Box, it was renovated by italian architects ACT Romegialli. it’s a small building on the property of a vacation house in the Rhaetian Alps, and serves…

Sarah McRae Morton

Sarah McRae Morton is an artist who has lived in Europe since 2010, but often returns to her childhood home in rural Pennsylvania, working in a loft above a horse barn where “a hay hatch casts a net of north light”. i’m going to stop right there and just, well, siiiiigh. her work is heavily influenced…

Double Tap: Matthieu Venot

there must be something so satisfying about cropping a photo into a symmetrical candy coloured composition. whatever the process of Matthieu Venot is, his compositions are clearly beautifully considered. Matthieu is a self-taught photographer from France who already has a huge following on Instagram. you can see his work there or on his website. more Double Tap…

Kitchens I Like

above image by Jonas Berg we’re lucky to live in a wonderful apartment in an old art-deco era building. it’s unusually big (a one bedroom that’s the size of a typical 2 bedroom), has wooden parquet floors, and is solidly built – so it’s warm in winter and cool in summer. only thing is, the previous owners…

Documerica

hi, i’m back! i have a mass of photos to work through from our trip to Tanzania, but you can check out what i have posted so long on Instagram. while i was away i realised that the U.S. was also on a holiday of sorts, and so in the spirit of the 4th of…
