I wonder if I could be a barista. I love to watch them at work - how fast their hands move as they navigate the grinding, then the coffee-making ( see, I really do have a lot to learn ), the milk-frothing. So much care and precision put into each. There are times I regretfully… Continue reading musings :: alicia vikander.
Recently I’ve started a new ritual. It’s called “old lady hannah” - slightly worrying that it’s already come to this at the age of 24.

It would be just like having a giant inspiration wall - no longer limited to your corkboard. Or jazzing it up… Continue reading white walls.
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.
