Beautiful Bathrooms by Ensemble Architecture

did you guys see that (thankfully brief) best nine photos of 2015 thing that seemingly took over Instagram at the end of last year? of course you did. funnily enough one of my most popular photos of 2015 was of a bathroom, and not even my own bathroom. and how do i know this? because it was…

Marmoreal

you may have spotted this bananas patterned marble all over your pinterests, in the form of bathrooms and shops and furniture and design objects, and perhaps wondered what the story behind it is – well here it is! Marmoreal is an engineered marble, designed by British designer Max Lamb and produced by Dzek. it is composed of four different…

Plante SS16

you may remember Plante from when i first posted about the brand in 2014. sisters Leah & Rebecca Plante have just launched their Spring 2016 collection – i love that classic green skirt, there’s almost nothing more beautiful to me than the combination of a blouse tucked into a long skirt. Plante draws on nature’s wildness,…

BOWIE

I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring. i will be listening all day today.   

Glamour Girls of the Air

did you guys ever watch that show Pan Am? it was about air stewardesses in the 1960s, TV execs obviously wanted to cash in on the height of the Mad Men period drama obsession at the time. it was not the best show… pretty cheesy and the storylines were totally contrived – but i liked it…

Arro Home

i think that these cushions by Arro Home are probably meant for kids… but you know what? i don’t care. i would happily have a thousand pretzel cushions all over my house thank you very much. besides cushions they have all sorts of fun goods ranging from rugs to bedding. they are an Australian brand…

The Islands

Claudia Corrent is an Italian photographer whose project Insulae (The Islands) offers a different perspective on Venice. i have been lucky enough to visit Venice twice – though never ventured beyond the main island. it’s interesting to see it like this, more from a local’s point of view (and minus all the tourists that…

Sunday Supply Co

it is SO HOT here! enough to make you want to put an umbrella shade inside your house. luckily for us we are still at the beach, which means we have the advantage of a sea breeze (and the chilly Atlantic) to cool us down. that doesn’t mean people aren’t sweating their pits off while lazing on…

Cornelius Völker

these paintings by German artist Cornelius Völker look good enough to eat, if you can say that about hair… it does make me want to be more dramatic with my hair-dos. a good new year’s resolution? With a distinctive method of handling paint that is simultaneously fluid and precise, German artist Cornelius Völker chooses traditional genres…

Über den Wolken

i first visited Barcelona on vacation back in 2007 – pre-social media days. i was so excited by what a cool city it was, but also overwhelmed because i didn’t know how to tap into and find the real coolness of the city beyond the touristy stuff. there was no twitter or blogging world to…

Vintage Star Wars

i, like many millions of people around the world, grew up watching Star Wars as a kid. we had each film on VHS, and i watched them repeatedly as often as i could. my mom even had a puffy quilted cream jacket similar to Princess Leia’s that i often wore around the house pretending i…

Kate Funk

happy new year!! we are still away on holiday, but i am easing myself back into work in between reading and napping and eating too many of these guys. this time of year is always kind of bittersweet to me, i don’t want holidays to end but i am also excited to jump back into…

🎄 Mid Week Distraction No. 31 🎅

’twas the night before Christmas and all through the house no one was on the internet because they all had better things to do. but if you are on the internet and you need a distraction, including some Christmasey ones, this is for you. happy holidays / happy vacation / happy day off /…

Goodies No. 26

we are on HOLIDAY! right now i’m sitting at the kitchen table in Anton’s family’s holiday house in Kei watching the sea with one eyeball, contemplating what book i’m going to read next. i already finished Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter in one day, a thriller slash murder mystery that i enjoyed more than this year’s…

Lines & Dots

i am completely obsessed with these beautiful sculptural lights by Home Adventures, a personal project by Barcelona based design studio Álvaro Goula / Pablo Figuera. just have a look at them spinning at their online shop – it’s completely mesmerising! Lines & Dots has its origins from dozens of ink drawings, which you can see…
