Delicious room layout

Such a soothing room - the light and the muted colours are so peaceful to look at.

Well this changes things. GOLD Hasbeens. Of course they're not in my size, but if they fit you, just do this, please, for all of us.

Charlotte Love

Isn't this a gorgeous colour palette? The pink, white and black really jump out at me in an amazing way.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

I haven't raved about a book on here for a while, but this was a particularly awesome read. Super clever plot, beautiful, aching writing and just an exceptionally clever idea. Loved it.

Klas Fahlen Letterpressed notebooks

Ooh hi pretties. Some lovely letterpressed notebooks coming out of Chronicle Books at the moment and I love the mid-century feel of these ones, especially.

Marimekko Räsymatto plate

I just want to extol the virtues of this plate. I have only one and not a whole set (yet!) but it's just so great. It's bigger than a normal side plate, but not a full dinner plate, and somehow just holds everything you need. It's also just a pattern I never tire of - I have been known to use it, clean it and use it immediately again, just because it's that good. I think it's time for the set...

Pens galore

I will never tire of sets of pens like these. Arranging and arranging in colour - just spectacular.

Geometric Foxy

I don't really wear brooches but isn't this one a sweetie? So geometric-y and foxy.

Oh sweet goodness

These boots are made for me. It's really all I can do to not dribble while looking at the screen.

House rings

Adore these house rings, inspired by antique Jewish wedding rings which are built to symbolise the love of the partners and the family home. Just beautifully done.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Thought this was a fun (and sort of spooky) garland.

Elegant Simplicity

I love, love this planter. It fools me into thinking it might be easy to make, but I suspect it won't be. Either way, delightfully elegant answer to getting ugly pots off the floor.

Tee hee

Love these light installations - such fun messages. It would be even cooler to have one that you could swap out messages for and leave for your housemate? I can imagine mine being sort of ridiculous but a lot of fun :)

Amazing wall colour

Isn't this grey wall amazing? I love the way the yellow bounces off it - delightful.

Four years ago today

Happy anniversary, Pal. You're wonderful and I'm excited for all our adventures.

Bear bookcase

I do love a good animal-shaped anything, and this bear bookcase is especially sweet.

To the moon and back

Mum used to say this to me all the time (actually, we still say it to each other) and this little cushion is so adorable and a great shape, too. Aaaaand purchased :) (Thanks for bringing this to the US, Em!).

Ferme a Papier

Loved these Ferme a Papier cards - so elegant. I've started a small card-tel (a pun on cartel?) with some good friends. We get together and swap cards from our collections (which are, ahem, fairly large!) and it makes it easier to buy a set of cards if you know you can swap some out. Clearly this is a niche problem to have, but you know, each to their own!

So brave, so strong

Gah I love this. A beautiful little cushion for a little person (or a big one!).

Gold gumball lamp

Definitely trying to find a place to put this. I mean, it's too perfect. And the name? A gumball lamp? Love love love.

Best bedlinen purchase

Feeling the need to extoll the virtues of these sheets. They are soft, jersey cotton and just delicious. They also seem to be getting softer with each wash. Possible to be in love with bedding?

Monochrome Shelves

Just yes. Love the black contrast backboard and the minimal decorations on this shelf - really striking.

Mid-century Mexican

Love this dresser and the colour scheme - something very soothing but interesting about how it's laid out. Gorgeous.

Cotton On Bedlinen

Cotton On bedlinen is really killing it at the moment. Nice mix of fun, Australian prints and colours and Scandinavian clean design. Off you go, Aussie friends. Buy these. (1, 2 and 3).

Lovely desk nook

Delicious little desk nook or dressing table - I would find it impossible to keep this so minimal, but if I could, I would!

Monday, October 6, 2014

White shelves

Love this white on white. Seems so soothing, although I could never achieve it, myself!

Pom pom hedgehogs

There are just some days when you think "let's stop everything and just make pom pom hedgehogs", aren't there?

Faces in envelopes

I may never address an envelope in the same way after seeing this. Ears!!  Too wonderful.

Fox basket

Yep, I'm still on the foxes. I love this fox basket - even for linen or laundry. Adorable.

Gorgeous card

What a sweet little Paris balloon card by illustrator Josie Portillo. Very celebratory and delightful.

Friday, September 26, 2014

Just yes!

Love this sentiment. What a lovely thing to think, and such a pretty arrangement, too.

Anglepoise Lamp

What an amazing lamp! Oh I love it - it would look so wonderful in a nursery - it's like it's from a story book, itself!

Italian steel stapler? Why yes please!

This steel stapler (via here and my friend Johnny) is pretty spectacular. I think it would make the everyday function of stapling seem kind of momentous, no? A lifetime guarantee for this bebe, too!

Soap stones by Pelle Design

Such a totally sweet idea. Far, far too pretty use but very pretty to smell and look at, no? (I can sort of smell them from here...)

Humanoid bedside tables

As someone who likes to anthropomorphize a lot, these tables are pretty spectacular.

West Elm Secretary

Love this West Elm secretary desk. I've been trying to re-arrange our new house a little, and our current (gorgeous) desk is just too big. I am thinking of selling it and using another bureau (which we already have) or a new desk. This one is a little pricey, but I like the way it could look like an ordinary cabinet and hide all stationery bits inside...

Wednesday, September 17, 2014


Yep, it's been pretty quiet around these parts. Life has become quite busy - in good ways - but I find any extra time is spent tidying the house, working or sleeping! I recently had the pleasure of going to France for a few days for work and this was one of my favorite photos, taken outside of my hotel window, of all places! Just perfection. Forgive the sporadic posting :)

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Oh yes.

Inspired by a recent comment from my friend Tori, I felt compelled to post this print. Yes in so many ways.

The bunnies

I know. I've been a little M.I.A. and I come back with bunny earrings? (Which, by the way, I am a little unsure about!).  There's been a lot on over here including my birthday and very busy times at work, but I'm back! Thoughts on the bunnies? Divisive, no?!
