Coast Wall Hangings

Love these Coast Wall Hangings. Raining watermelon seems like a pretty wonderful thing.

The 100 Most Beautiful Words in English

Love love love. Anything with words, but this is also a lovely list. I'd add 'linen', 'epitome' and 'uxorious'. What are your favourites?

This Moi

Ah this sums up everything I love about 30 Rock. What a stellar Liz Lemon quote. (Maybe on par with the excellent Glob joke in The Mindy Project this week - who's with me?).

New Marimekko range

Err, can we please talk about your brand new range, Marimekko? It's like a tie-dyed version of heaven or a perfectly blurry horizon. It sadly doesn't exactly go with the rest of my kitchenware but oh goodness it's beautiful.

Catharina Kippel mugs

What great mugs you are. I wish you could buy many of the same pattern - I'd grab the raindrops one for sure.

These are spectacular. Sadly they have a dusting of glitter on them which is not ideal, but I love the shape and the colour. These could be amazing autumn boots...

Oooh West Elm awesomeness

Gorgeousness and perfect - what a sideboard. I love all the shapes and the colour. Gimme gimme gimme.

Confetti System

I have recently been told that I have necklaces that look like something Mr T would wear. And strangely I'm fine with that. I already have a lot of metallics, but this purple one is pretty spectacular.

Oh so good

Oh this is great. In the land of the taco/California, I feel this would be not only handy but fairly statement-making.

Copper headphones

I still use my boring white in-ear earphones but aren't these adorable? Cuties! Out of stock for now, but I'm staying tuned. (Geddit?)

If Daria went to Fashion Week

So many pictures of NYFW in my Feedly feed at the moment. Happily someone thought it would be great to dress up 90s cartoon characters as if they had grown up and were attending. Fave paparazzi shot ever!

Triangles can really do no wrong. I feel very strongly about this :)

Books galore

Oooh. There are days where I really, really miss all of my books. They're all back in Sydney, stored at my parents' house, waited for me. I don't know what I'll end up doing with them - perhaps bring over 10 at a time each time I visit?! (There are hundreds!) Love the black wall and these books jumping off the page - what a great shot.

House Progress XI

It's been a long time since I updated you on House Progress. I think once all the basics were here (we had a couch to sit on and a bed to sleep on, etc!) the urgency wore off. Well, it's time to re-evaluate the kitchen. Two things are sorely needed. One is bench space, and the other is a space for people to congregate. Whenever we have people over, they're keen to sit and talk while we prepare and it is invariably uncomfortable to just hang off the walls :) I'm thinking of some sort of unit like this black one which has a little shelf/table to sit at the edge of. It's not like we need comfortable-for-hours seating - it's more just the short intervals of cooking and chatting. This unit and these stools are from the ever-accessible Target - and shouldn't break the bank if we go for something along these lines. I'll keep you posted...

Delightful living room

Funny seeing so many of my favorite things in a room that isn't mine. The black and white rug, the calendar, the Eames chairs - I've had all of these either in a past house or the current one, so this home looks very homey to me.
