These Things No.58

it’s been quiet around here since the weekend, reason being i threw my back out on saturday and have been lying horizontal ever since. it’s not easy blogging from this position. it’s actually not easy doing anything besides sleeping and watching tv (you ARE watching True Detective aren’t you?) besides bed rest, and the occasional hobbled walk around the apartment, i have also been doing some catch up internet browsing on my iPad. so here’s a These Things! normal posting to resume soon.

These Things No.52

hello! a These Things is long overdue – and i figured since a lot of you were on holiday it was time for a recap of sorts. i also had a mini-holiday this weekend, we were treated to a night at the amazing Clouds Estate for Anton’s birthday. it’s a bit of a luxury spot in the winelands just outside my home town of Stellenbosch. if you’re ever in this part of the world, and you want to treat yo self, then this is the place. and go eat at Tokara for dinner (have the baked alaska with salmon ice-cream. do it!)

this story stayed with me all week – artist Judy Millar built her house overlooking the black sands of Anawhata beach outside Aukland. thanks to FvF for covering such interesting people, as always:

love the beautiful rings (and other jewellery) by Bario Neal:

you’ll recognise Celine from the last edition of these things – here’s a sweet feature on her & daughter Eloise by Boots & Pine:

These Things No.50

i’ve been slipping a bit on the post front this week – sorry. have been quite busy, and felt kind of chained to my desk to be honest. which always makes me worry about my health… all that sitting cannot be good for you. when i’m done with work i just want to dramatically push my chair away from my desk and not even look at the screen anymore (in a metaphorical way of course, my office chair doesn’t have wheels so i can’t do a real push and twirl).

i’m also suffering from severe cabin fever, as i’ve been working from home for the past 2 weeks due to renovations at our office. and let me tell you – working at home SUCKS. for me, anyway. it has been quite essential for me to get out of the house every once in a while, especially for walks on the promenade. in an ideal world i’d have my own little studio somewhere… one day, one day.

anyway! it’s time for a friday these things. oh hey, 50 seems like a big number! but i guess everything on this here blog is sort of a these things, so let’s not get too excited.

i have to start with this coat from the Chloe Resort 2014 collection which is just amazing:

these shoes by Alpha60 are cool:

cute leather hair accessories by Canoe:

love this french label Homecore discovered via Cath:

foldable vase covers by snugstudio:

Lauren Manoogian & Bryan Purcell photographed by Backyard Bill:

the Nina Ricci Resort 2014 collection is just exquisite:

this identity design by Anagrama for dry cleaners Nordic House is wonderful:

the new collection by Serax is rad:

Debra’s film photos of The Table really capture how great it is:

i would like these leather sandals from Everlane, please:

i don’t know what i’d put in this golden leather bag (fancy lunch?) but i want it:

A Kind of Guise is an awesome looking shop in Munich:

one of my favourite local labels Selfi has just launched their online shop:

these hanging plants are ideal for sprucing up a lonely ceiling:

very much into woven storage baskets these days. left: connected goods; right: wabi sabi:

Cuyana has some beautiful totes (and a lovely new design thanks to Jessica Comingore & Shilpa Shah):

Vegetarian Ventures is a great new-to-me food blog:

i hope that i run into the Van Leeuwen ice-cream truck when we’re in New York:

Naftul is a lovely Israeli label:

i like the idea of roller wallpaper:

stackable rings are everywhere, aren’t they? these ones by Hannah Naomi are affordable & rad:

have a happy weekend, everybody.

Things That Go Together

i have been seduced by some beautiful imagery online in the past week, and especially things that go together. 1. this lady’s impeccable style in the moment – there’s nothing quite like a camel coat. 2. Loeffler Randall’s amazing new pre-fall booties. i haven’t wanted new shoes this badly in a while. 3. the leather skirt and infectious smile of Monica Paolini. 4. these watches by VOID – in every colour, please (but especially the brown). 5.  the industrial collection at Bodie & Fou. 6. clipping details over at the Rijksmuseum. 7. Gorgeous kitty by Aurore de La Morinerie8. Another lovely cat, by Mathilde. 9. the fashion stylings of Nanushka. 10. ink on paper by Malin Gabriella Nordin. 11. the Paris apartment of Clarisse and Lucile Demory.
