Be Still My Beating Luggage

Internet. I just had to share with you how brilliant this suitcase is. My parents bought it for me for Christmas last year and it's quite amazing. First, it's incredibly light. Second, it's super dexterous and easy to move and lastly, it's shiny and pale green. If you're planning to travel, I guarantee this to be a most excellent travelling companion.

Eye Spy

I've spotted this eye print twice now and I love it - such a lovely graphic and modern print.

Colourful Kitchen

Oooh delicious. A candy-coloured kitchen? Love the pastel upper cupboards - this looks fantastic.

Geometric Wallpaper

Usually I like wallpaper for a few moments - and often think I'd have buyers' remorse if I ever decided on a pattern. Until I saw this pattern. I think I could look at it forever.

Kitchen Herb Garden

As someone who struggles to grow herbs successfully, this porcelain spaceship looks like it would help a lot. And it looks kind of fabulous, too.

Comfy home

Love the layered rugs (or maybe it's just one rug?) in this lounge room - it looks so comfortable and cosy while still seeming very elegant and modern.

Re-turned birds

These adorable Norwegian birds are made from scrap wood and I couldn't think of a sweeter way to dispose of offcuts. The little army below is perfect!

Flying Baby

The Flying Baby series is too wonderful to miss: it made me giggle and gasp at the same time. Enjoy!

Darling Dexter

This garden party dress from Darling Dexter is too perfect. Sadly we didn't really have a summer here in Sydney this year, but one day, I will wear this, and it will be sunny.

Map Skirt

My friend Sophie sent me a link to this skirt in an email last night with the line, "Kate, this has to be the you-est skirt around!" and I have to agree. So, so perfect.

H&M and Ikea

Gosh this is such a pleasing meeting of two brands that I love. The belts (Internet, you know I do love belts in design) and the plants make this little shelf just delightful.

Pither Heel

Wow wow wow. The wooden heels and the off-kilter angle is amazing. And the golden section? Perfection. I wish I had a life that would be amenable to these (I'm thinking a chauffeur is essential, for a start...).

Minimalist Children's Book Covers

Such beautiful and minimalist covers of children's book covers which are so subtle and lovely. The muted colours remind me of a 1950s retelling - just delicious.

Modcloth Canisters

Well hello there, shiny, pretty canisters. Aren't you just delightful with your wooden lids and 50s, Scandi-inspired prints. Nice job. 
Images from here and here.

Peaceful Place

There are some days that just require a little spot like this one. Cushions, tea and plants = deliciousness.

Loft Haus

Well everything about this picture is just perfect. This is ProtoHaus - a tiny trailer home which, although kinda too tiny, is pretty delightful.

Roald Dahl stamps

Oh my goodness. These bring back so many memories of my childhood - I read all of these time and again: my copies of Roald Dahl books were some of my most cherished books, and these stamps are so perfect. (Although The Witches one still, as it did back in the day, freaks me out).

Dress of my Dreams

Yes, of course it's out of stock at the moment, but this map dress is kind of perfect in every way. I love you, map dress. Please come and live with me and be happy forever?

Boaty goodness

Yes, I know. I already have a dress with boats on it. And I'm not even that maritime-inclined. (Except sometimes The Pal grows a beard when we're on holidays, and I call him a 'crusty seadog', which I suspect he sort of loves...). But again I say: this dress is pretty awesome.
