Girl & Graaf

i got the sweetest email from Lauren sharing the campaign for her recently opened online boutique Girl & Graaf. Lauren says she took a lot of inspiration from the blog in creating the campaign, so i guess things have come full circle around here! and what a beautiful shop (and photoshoot!) it is, i am definitely coveting those washable gold bags.

Catch Up: Spaces

ever since i got back from my holiday i’ve been tirelessly catching up on my reader (which is now down to under 500 items!) and pinning away in the mind to do a massive These Things. but, MASSIVE it was. too massive. so i decided instead to create a little mini-series of sorts called Catch Up. relevant to interiors, fashion, design etc.

first up – SPACESif you want to see more spaces see this board.

Modern Findings

i am so jealous of Wakako’s home, which you can see in full at her house tour. she has a blog called Modern Findings that details her love for mid-century modern design, something that is clearly reflected in this beautiful space.

TW Workshop

i’ve been keeping a close eye on Tracy Wilkinson’s blog 149 Sullivan Street, as she has been teasing us with sneak peeks of her new site for TW Workshop – which i’m happy to see launched this past week. Tracy is a British designer who has a masters degree in fashion & textile design from the royal college of art in london, and now lives stateside where she handmakes ceramics and home accessories (amongst other creative endeavours). be sure to visit her shop.
