Laurie Melia Ceramics

yes those are what you think they are. Australian Laurie Melia’s ceramics are so popular that in the two minutes it took me to open her Etsy shop and browse through some of her latest wares – they sold out. Laurie is very active on Instagram, and she announces when she’ll be updating her shop to…

Impressive interiors captured by David Burdeny

i’m sure you’ve been there, having just visited your hundredth museum on holiday somewhere in Europe, the hundreds of years old frescoes all blurring into one as you walk glassy eyed from room to room and take yet another photo without even thinking. i know i have! isn’t it crazy how we take such intricate…

Old Photos, new memories

i often wonder, if we still only had film cameras – what would our memories look like? my memories as a kid are heavily influenced by photos from my childhood, and there would often only be a handful from any event (if one at all!). now of course we have digital camera rolls filled…

Melissa Loop

Melissa Loop is an artist from Minneapolis whose paintings are based on her travels to faraway places that play on the idea of nostalgia, fantasy and memory… I was in Tikal sitting on top of the highest temple after sunset with about a dozen other tourists. We were listening to our Mayan guide tell us…

Mid Week Distraction No. 34

aaaand we’re back! i’m actually surprised i don’t have more mid week distractions for you this week, truth is my latest obsession is Instagram Stories – i just love watching (and creating!) them more than anything else at  the moment… sadly my internet exploring has fallen by the wayside. and of course my reading habit has…

Tactile Matter

Tactile Matter is collection of stoneware ceramics by LA based illustrator Kenesha Sneed. you should watch this video about her work, it will make you want to make something with your hands asap. she’s influenced by “her desert and coastal roots of Southern California”. i love her colourful collaboration with Saint Heron, too (mostly…

Jewels Sept

are you familiar with my Jewels posts? well sometimes i get overwhelmed with the wonderful array of new jewellery out there, and rather than dedicating a post to every single designer i compile a compendium of sorts instead. i’ve been numbering them in French (who KNOWS why) and this is the seventh edition, aka…

Old House, New House

we live in an old house, which we think may have been built sometime in the 1930s. even though we’d like to renovate some day there are still many vintage elements in the house that we’d like to keep. so i’m always interested to see how architects and interior designers update old houses, without…

A Painterly Spring

guys, following the fashion shows is exhausting. Spring 2017 is only in London now, which means Paris and Milan still have to come! i looked at (what felt like) hundreds of shows and realised I’d only scratched the surface of New York fashion week. so, instead of doing an exhaustive rundown i decided just to pair…

Michael Meadors

i just love that first image, above, so much – i had to find our more about the artist Michael Meadors. he creates highly rendered graphite paintings (no, that’s not an old black & white photo – as i first thought!). these are all from his series called Maiden America.

Hats by Laura Apsit Livens

i can count the number of occasions i’ve worn a hat on maybe one hand. i just kind of feel like a fool when wearing one. do i look okay? is my hair sitting right? why does my forehead feel so sweaty? etc. but that doesn’t mean they don’t look good on other people.…

Kate Miss

i thought i’d give you a little update on what the multitalented designer and thing-maker Kate Miss has been up to! a new jewellery collection and a bunch of prints, that’s what. and even though she doesn’t blog like she used to, her music mixes are still stellar.

Gosia Herba

aah i wish i had found the work of Gosia Herba before i did my post about cool prints & things for kids, but her work is so nice – and it’s not necessarily only for kids – so she definitely deserves her own post. she is an illustrator, graphic designer & painter from Wrocław,…

Cute prints & things for kids

at the moment’s Axel’s nursery is a work in progress – which is why i haven’t shared any photos! he’s been sleeping in our room since he was born, which means his room is mainly for storage and the occasional nappy change (we mainly use a changing pad in our bedroom). but one of these…

Jujubunny

i had a rare few hours to myself this morning and so decided to go browse around the shops. and everywhere i went – h&m, Zara, Cotton On… i went straight to the kid’s section. i’ve lost almost all interest in clothes for myself (maybe cause i can only fit into jeans and loose…
