Stacking rings

I do enjoy a good stacking ring set and this one is no exception. The fact that they look a little battered only makes them better, in my opinion.

A beautiful bag for Autumn

I recently bought a handbag that means I will no longer buy bags for a long time. But this one is pretty great - a large weekender type that just looks like it'd be your friend for a long time and keep all your secrets.

Perfect art

I've come to the conclusion that I love sculptures in homes - not just galleries. And this crinkled piece of paper/amazing sculpture is perfect.

The Wire Project

I mean, I've only been mildly obsessed with The Wire since 2008. I don't know how many times I've watched it, start to end, but it's a lot. And I've read most of the books written by David Simon and some of the heads writers, like Richard Price. Put it this way: I'd feel pretty good about having good odds beating you on The Wire trivia. So it's no surprise that I love these posters that Alice showed me. These ones are my favorites. Oldies but goodies.

New kitchen furniture

For a while we've been wanting to get some chairs and a table for our kitchen. More bench space, somewhere to sit and chat while making dinner, generally making the large kitchen a bit more of a congregation space. We settled on these ones - I am not in love with the table, but it's a good size and the chairs fit underneath really well which was a selling point. I'll try to take photos in the kitchen but the light is not spectacular so these might have to do.

The Inner Collector

Sometimes I see a photo like this one and my inner collector roars and I think "I need to stop everything and collect candlesticks". I know I should, you know, not give up my day job, but gosh these look magnificent together!

These are now mine.

I can't even remember if I blogged about these pretties before, but they're mine now and I love them dearly. The silver thingy at the back is especially cool, and they're surprisingly comfy.

Monochromatic goodtimes

Love the woodiness and monochromatic scheme in this lounge room, but also, that lamp! I'm on a secret lamp hunt at the moment, by which I mean I occasionally decide to look at lamps online, then get indecisive and then stop looking.

Dear Sugar

My wonderful friend AB told me to read Dear Sugar recently, and I loved it dearly. Intense but very moving. I loved this poster with all Cheryl Strayed's sayings, too - it's printed in my kitchen and I catch a little bit of wisdom every day. (You can read her letters here, too).

Stationery heaven

I like to think that all stationery deserves a good home. I mean, it's so lovely and doesn't this wall hanging look like it'd be a friendly waiting place until it was sent out into the world?

Love. This.

I feel like my pillow wants to say this to me even when it's not written there. What a great idea.

You could have saved it

Love the colours in this print and how they're mirrored perfectly in the lounge room

San Francisco

Love this shot of the bridge - such an interesting angle and the colours, as always, are amazing.

Margate Architectural Installation

My lovely friend KF told me all about this - an architectural installation in London where the facade looks like it's literally falling off the front. Too, too wonderful.

Perfect room

Oh polka dots. You sweet things. What a lovely, bright-looking bedroom.

So deeply good

Totoro is one of my favourite movies and this is such a beautiful quote from its creator.

What a room!

Oh the ceilings, the symmetry and that artwork! So divine - want to snuggle there immediately.

Heart-shaped meadow

This is so beautiful. A heart-shaped meadow, created by a farmer as a tribute to his late wife. The point of the heart points towards her birthplace.

Ann and Paul Rand's children's book covers

Aren't these just the best? Am tempted to make stickers out of them and put them, um, everywhere.

Beautiful things

Eugh. This is so perfect. Everything. Would love this shelf in my kitchen so much - looking into shelving as I type. Well, you know what I mean.
