Home is where I sit in the light, early morning on a Saturday before the rest of the world decides to wake and disturb. I gaze out the window and watch as the trees sway gradually, back and forth - almost convincing of a rural life until the oversized crane comes into focus. I hear… Continue reading what’s in a home?
I had a Forrest Gump moment on the train today. If life is like a box of chocolates it's also full of some pretty nasty ones. Like maybe meatloaf or tuna chocolate. Basically the worst flavours you could dream of, potentially inspired by the strange treats available in Harry Potter's wizarding world. Because there are… Continue reading life + chocolate.
Oh Mr Selby is one of my faves. I wish I could meet as many inspiring people as he does everyday. Not sure if it is a prerequisite to being in an artistic industry - but how do all these folks live in such amazing spaces? They all have a loft, or a studio, or… Continue reading selby + creatives.
A relaxing lounge needs nothing more than these Aztec-inspired rugs and a brown leather couch, and of course some wooden floor boards. Olatz Schnabel got it all right. The designer's New York home is filled with these homey features and vibrant rugs - one for every room, to match the curtains or the bedspread or… Continue reading to lounge.
Some homes almost make me want to cry because they are so amazing, and they aren't mine. Even more than that, I'm still living at home, so don't even have rooms to play with and spread my belongings everywhere. That would be why my room is so messy all the time - how on earth… Continue reading wouldn’t it be nice.
I want my future who-knows-when apartment to look and feel just like this. Like it's a lot bigger than it really is, and warm, homey and inspiring. These two are writers so I could probably never reach their coolness level - I bet they do all their writing / work from home just because it's… Continue reading apartamento.
Can I just make a quick statement here - I'm not sure why, but it annoys the crap out of me when people say 'inspo'. For me, the word 'inspiration' doesn't need any cool-ifying - it is already perfect, it's already 'inspiring'. Thinking of inspiration brings up beautiful images in my mind, like blue skies… Continue reading house.
Distressed bricks are just one of those absolute winners for me when it comes to home. We have future dreams of a rumpus room, decked out with dark leather couches, a bit of mood lighting, and old exposed brick walls. Our New York inspiration. That will be Tim's hang room. And mine will be a light-filled… Continue reading another lovely home.
There is just something about the current Aztec craze. Can't get enough of it. It's got me. I might be the only person to have a favourite shape, but whatever, I friggin love triangles. Just to prove my point, think about these triangle friends: bunting, yum sandwiches, the actual triangle instrument, the PYRAMIDS. Enough said.… Continue reading going all aztec
