Paige Jiyoung Moon

Paige Jiyoung Moon is an illustrator from Seoul, now based in Pasadena. i love her slice-of-life vignettes, all too familiar for anyone in their twenties or thirties. you can follow her on Instagram. oh and that Alpaca painting is for sale.

Goodies No. 29

time for some GOODIES! first of all, the new Mara Hoffman swimwear is DELICIOUS. the above high-waisted bikini is my fave, also all of these… well, everything! if i needed a shower curtain i would definitely get this one by Quiet Town: these vessels by Sophie Eveleigh are gorgeous: my favourite emoji is the upside down…

Belynda Henry

oh yes, i like this very much. very much indeed. work by Australian artist Belynda Henry. she has an extensive collection you can delve into on her website and of course loads of inspiration on Instagram. makes me want to run away to the country and take up painting (of course it would not be…

March

so i haven’t done a music mix since August last year, and i have two things to blame for that: (1) Babies. i just don’t have the leisure time to delve into new music anymore! + (2) i don’t really like new music?? actually no, i just find it such a chore to discover new tunes that grab…

Katinsky House

i look at this house and i’m like… (a) i want to live there. but (b) Axel would bang his head on that cool coffee table, and spit up on that leather chair, and fall down those rad concrete stairs, and he would most definitely eat those fake apples casually sitting in that wooden bowl. yep.…

Itamar Freed

I love these painterly portraits by Itamar Freed, an Israeli photographer born in NYC who lives and works in London & Israel. My photographic work draws upon a return to the classic paintings of Art History. Through the use of color, natural illumination at its extremes, open composition and multiple vanishing points that simultaneously draw…

Animal Scarves by Nina Führer

quick! the baby is asleep and i have a few minutes to bust out a post, let’s gooooooooo! (this should be a new series huh??) these animal scarves by Nina Führer made me smile. it’s still stinking hot around here, but i would so wear one as soon as i got the opportunity – i would…

Rosie Assoulin ex situ

aaah here we are again, friends – the shows are upon us! what shows? the Fall 2017 fashion shows, guys. don’t worry, i had no real idea they were on either. so i went lookin’ around at Vogue to see what is up, and of course walked away with an idea for some colour comparisons.…

Children’s Fashions

i’m not exactly sure when this series of photographs were taken, looks like sometime in the fifties, but damn are these kids sharp. i mean, obviously they’re not dressing themselves – but whoever did really needs to give me some sartorial lessons. most of my clothes have spit up on them, sigh. taken by Nina…

Monochromatiques

at first when browsing through Paris based designer Isabelle’s shop Monochromatiques i simply appreciated the fine minimalist jewellery – and then i began to notice sublime little surprises: a tiny brooch of matchsticks, a curtain blowing in the wind, a popcorn pin, assemble-it-yourself jewellery inspired by baby’s building bricks, an ode to the Log Lady, some subtle…

Lora and her friends

Lora and her friends (“Lora et ses amies”) is a series by Swiss visual artist Nives Widauer. i actually saw the imagery, before knowing anything about the artist, and was like – “budgies with legs? i’m in!” well, first of all, they’re parrots. the original images are from Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots…

Seeing Eye Cat

something fun for your Friday! oh how i wish i could find the original article for this series of photos, but all i know is they’re tagged “Seeing Eye Cat” and they were taken in 1947 by Loran Smith for LIFE magazine. now clearly, this cat is the world’s WORST seeing eye cat, even though it…

Wilton Way

i saw this awesome loft makeover on Food52 and i couldn’t help but share, it’s so well designed and so much thought has gone into every detail. i highly recommend reading the entire article for all the info. the flat is in Hackney, London and is pretty small: only 46m2 (500 square feet) so the owners Catherine Verna…

Bonsergent Studio

every year around this time i start pining for winter. like really cold, icy winter. we still have about 2 of the hottest months to get through, but i’m hoping that when Axel’s first birthday swings around in May (!!) i’ll be wearing a winter coat. what kind of coat? i dunno. something long. something…

La Grenadine

i often get asked by readers who plan to visit Cape Town if i can recommend hotels in the city, and though i haven’t stayed in any local places myself (i mean, i live here) i always point them in the direction of La Grenadine. a few years back i took these photos for Conde Nast…
