Lenneke Wispelwey

Lenneke Wispelwey is a dutch ceramicist whose pastel hued porcelain pieces are “inspired by her own memories and found pieces from every day life”. her pieces make me think of modern versions of vases and collectibles i often see in vintage shops. you can shop her collection online at Buiten de Lijntjes. visit her…

LES by Lesia Paramonova

i’ve briefly featured russian fashion designer Lesia Paramonova by way of Susie Bubble (who is evidently a fan, as she has been snapped in her creations multiple times) and was reminded of her splendid work again by thisispaper – which you should be reading if you aren’t already. her latest collection was released last week on…

Dama and Dig

i was catching up on emails this morning after our internet-less weekend away and a wonderful letter from Anna Fusco was just so awesomely serendipitous & co-incidental, as i had literally just read this book and listened to this podcast. both are stories of people who one day decided to hit the road and…

River View

we’ve been wanting to visit River View for a long time, and so really had no better excuse to go than to celebrate our anniversary weekend. not being hotel types, we much prefer to find chilled out (and budget friendly) self-catering joints where you can just relax, read, cook, eat and sleep for a few days.…

These Things No.46

i think i should do a these things every friday, it’s a nice way to wrap up the week. have a great weekend – we’re taking a road trip to the Karoo to celebrate our anniversary! i’ll try to take photos again like we did at Kruger, it’s always nice to share a bit…

Kekkilä

my philosophy when it comes to indoor plants is basically “yes please, more is better”. especially if you live in apartment with no outdoor area to speak of. we don’t have a balcony or garden, but i would love to grow herbs in our kitchen – unfortunately it’s a small space that gets no light. also…

Chiaozza

we’ve been living in our home for months but still don’t have anything on the walls. we’re those people. there’s plenty of art to put up, but at the moment they’re sorta hanging around, balancing on pieces of furniture and resting on the floor in art limbo. just waiting for their moment. i guess…

Olive Thomas

if there’s one thing i’m super picky about, fashion wise, it’s shoes. as a result i only have one pair of boots, one pair of sandals, one pair of loafers… it’s just so hard for me to find shoes i really love that i can actually, ahem, afford. most of the time i just…

The Cowgirl Way

i love anything to do with cowgirls, so it was a treat looking through this recent New York Times feature about cowgirls of today who grow up in the ranch country of the Texas Panhandle. some of these girls appear quite tough (and i bet they are!) but then you spot the inconspicuous braid in their…

12 hrs

i really love the idea behind 12 hrs, a new travel site launched by The Locals photographer Søren Jepsen and writer Anna Peuckert. much like my own city guide to Cape Town, they aim to give you tips “that aren’t about money, but about great discoveries from all around the world.” i wish i could have had their…

TEN & Co.

you’ll remember the beautiful lookbook from shoemakers TEN & Co. that i shared last year. well, they have gone in a completely different direction to showcase their Spring 2013 collection! showing off their beautiful handmade shoes in sumptuous table settings of food & drink, reminiscent of the still life paintings from Dutch golden age artists like Pieter Claesz, Willem van…

Desert Warrior

Yo Vintage is one of my rad sponsors, a vintage shop based in Portland with an excellent online shop that also stocks new jewellery and accessories from independent designers. they just released their latest lookbook Desert Warrior which just ticks all the boxes for me, especially that beautiful cream skirt & blouse combo – classic.…

Goodies No.16

here are ten nice things for the home: to buy, to DIY, or just to sigh (at)… sweet little bowls by Fine Little Day: porcelain serving boards by honeycomb studio: unbelievable textiles by Mae Engelgeer, via gimii: the awesome project is awesome: Pennyweight Goods presents the Southern Lights Electric x Pennyweight wall lamp: Bindle is a sweet…

8 Homes

Simone & Rhys Haag’s home in Melbourne is one of the nicest & most inspiring i’ve seen in a while: Aerin Lauder’s house in Aspen (profiled by Vogue of course, of course): a beautiful renovation of an apartment by AR architects, i particularly like the yellow details (and those floors): a home in London…

The Socialite Family

consider The Socialite Family a French version of FvF – except focusing on families, of course. founder Constance Gennari started the website to share her true passion: “observing interior design through the eyes of a family, whether in Paris, New York or anywhere else in the world.” Traditional values, more particularly, family values are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s…
