Casa dos Outros

Casa dos Outros

i dug DEEP into the archives of Casa dos Outros (‘House of Others’) a Brazilian blog by Zizi Carderari and Silvia Gomez that lets us into the lovely homes of people living in São Paulo. one connecting thing that i loved about these homes is the often eclectic ensemble of art and objects… so much joy and RADNESS and COLOUR.

Someware

Someware

Someware was founded by Giselle Hernandez, a designer living in LA who is originally from Colombia. the online shop features curated items for the home; handcrafted by artisans and designers from around the world – their first collection explores ethnic designs from Colombia and Peru.

Spaces Volume Two

when i was at university (in the early 2000s – holla!) the only real inspiration we got were from magazines and books, before the magic of the blog world exploded. i didn’t like many of the mags that were available to me, except for frankie magazine. they were hard to come by in south africa then. i used to scour the shops to come across that elusive copy and i still have all of them! so to say i have a soft spot for frankie is an understatement.

Hem

HEM // Miss Moss

so i have been keeping one eyeball on Hem – a new online shop that’s sort of positioning itself like the Everlane or Warby Parker of furniture. high-end design that’s simple, affordable, beautiful and designed to last. they are currently taking pre-orders on their debut collection.

more-and-co-01
