oh my goodness, okay, so i have this friend who is mega talented, ultra sweet, incredibly beautiful and so creative and amazing. she does things like instead of taking a photo of a freshly decorated space in her new apartment, she'll do a super cute drawing of it! yep, that's just the kind of girl she is. and it's her birthday today- hip, hip, hooray! xoxo
i'm always a bit excited to flick through rue mag and this latest issue did not disappoint (i may have to have another gander actually). here are a few images i enjoyed, starting with the lovely cover.
peacock chair? yes, please!
hong kong imagery- cannot wait to check this place out.
i need to get me some party shoes...
a girl i knew in high school made a cutlery mobile...i'll never forget it.
i'm a huge fan of sequins or anything a bit over the top and shimmery...and i am especially a fan of when people go above and beyond the call of duty, just because. today, this incredible sequined graffiti in Reykjavik, Iceland by Danish/Czech artist Theresa Himmer was brought to my attention. way to go the extra mile...i love these installations. would be so giddy to catch a glimmer of one in real life.
i was looking through a back issue of paperplane magazine and stumbled upon this breathtaking photo by Sydney photographer Hayley Anderson. i was so moved by this image of a little girl in Havana, Cuba happily playing with this old wheel, unaware of her place in the world or that someone was taking a photo...it brought tears to my eyes over lunch. oof.
everyone seems to be gushy about these dip-dyed paper cups this week. well, i am too! their colours have been made with natural plant pigments and the results are simply.stunning. momma...betcha' you could one up these somehow...
when i started this blog, i wanted to focus on the interiors of the humble home. i posted my mom's house (andhere andhere), my littlesister's apartmentand my aunt's place. this weekend at a couple friends' house for a bbq i went a bit snap happy again. their place is so cozy and treasure filled; complete with a new bundle of joy! i love how their space is decorated with mismatched hand-me-downs, vintage delights, natural ephemera and handmade heartful items. i felt right at home.
