Saana ja Olli: After The Storm

Saana ja Olli: After The Storm

oh i love this lookbook for the new collection from Saana ja Olli – After The Storm. it makes me think of the end of long summer days, when you’re still outside as dusk starts to fall, and everything is coated in that dark blue hue… i posted about this Finnish design…

HEM // Miss Moss

Hem

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.

Rebecca Atwood: Howland

Rebecca Atwood: Howland

when my eyes fell on Howland, the latest collection from textile designer Rebecca Atwood, first thing that came to mind was: hell yes, i DO want gold zippers on my pillows. it’s simple touches like that that usually seal the deal when i’m contemplating a new purchase.

Sean Woolsey

Sean Woolsey

i discovered california based furniture designer & artist Sean Woolsey through FvF who did a great profile of his home yesterday. what really intrigued me was his website that showcases his pieces in such a fun way. it’s so normal to see designer furniture in a cold and static setting, but seeing a kid in…

These Walls // Miss Moss shares bits of her apartment

These Walls

it’s funny that i have never done any kind of house tour, but the truth is our place is not pinterest worthy. not that it has to be. i could show you pics of the dishes in the sink and the weird basket i keep under the bathroom cabinet that’s…

Miss Moss // India House

India House

i was lucky enough to spend an evening at India House (so named for the bright blue old wooden door brought from Gujarat, India), a self-catering cottage in the Bastiaanskloof at the bottom of the Bainskloof Pass, less than 2 hours from Cape Town. the setting is so amazing that the beautiful decor and…

Gypsya Rugs

i have a beautiful Turkish rug in the studio that always gets a lot of comments on Instagram. i never have the heart to tell people that’s it’s one of a kind and that, unfortunately, you have to go to Turkey to get one – so i’m always on the lookout…

Skinny laMinx: Paradise is Here

Paradise is Here

Skinny laMinx (aka Heather Moore) was probably the first south african whose work i saw on international design blogs back in the day. which makes me immensely proud, especially because she is such a lovely and hardworking person. if you follow her on Instagram you will see how she notices design…

Studio Arhoj

Studio Arhoj

remember those insanely cute ceramic Ghosts i posted about? well i revisited Studio Arhoj to see what they’ve been up to, and luckily for us there is a new SS 2014 collection to peruse. founded by Anders Arhoj in Tokyo in 2006, the studio is now based in Copenhagen. they make all…

Sheepskin

sheepskin is like the rug version of the birkenstock. it’s everywhere , and i love it. it’s one of those boho Megan-Draper’s-house-in-LA kind of thing that’s been around f-o-r-e-v-er (like macrame, or hand-woven tapestries) but now it’s ever so casually draped on a leather butterfly chair like it’s no big deal. oh…

LaMalconttenta

LaMalconttenta

LaMalconttenta is a spanish brand by designer Lydia de la Piñera, who is one of those multi-talented people who illustrates, makes jewellery, ceramics and prints. you can buy all these sweet things at her online shop. I studied graphic design artistic photography and digital media. However, I was always enjoyed…

Hirashima

Hirashima

we are thinking about a house. i mean, just starting the process… in our minds. i know it can take months or years for anything to come to fruition – and i always try to be pragmatic about these things and not get TOO excited (don’t go breakin’ my heart!)…
