wit

i grew up in a white walls household – it just went with my parent’s ‘modernist’ house and that was that. i still get nervous about putting colour on the walls, though i have toyed with the idea of light grey (hah). my rented flat has a sort of beigey crap colour in all the rooms (even the bathroom!) that i’m not allowed to paint over & it drives me kind of nutso.

a clock without hands

i wish i had more information about marcine miller (an american living in paris, i think?) – but i do know that her blog is beautiful and her photos are gorgeous (and BIG! i love when people have tons of large photos to scroll through). do yourself a favour and go get lost in her world for a little while. she also has a great flickr stream (how i found her blog in the first place, thanks flickr)
