5 Places to Buy Vintage Portraits

As far back as I can remember I have been drawn to the mysterious allure of vintage portraits. There’s something thrillingly intimate about having an anonymous likeness of someone from the past just hanging about your home. There is also a well-documented rumour in my family of an enormous oil painting of my maternal great-great-grandparents languishing in […] Read more…

Period Inspiration: Netflix’s ‘Anne With An E’

There’s nothing that states ‘required viewing’ for me than when a new TV series is accompanied by swoon-worthy interiors and new Netflix show ‘Anne with an E’ (a re-boot of the iconic Anne of Green Gables) is a living breathing evocation of everyones favourite modern crafted brands – it’s basically Restoration Hardware meets Farrow and Ball by way […] Read more…

The New Industrial, High Street Hits

Erie Basin

I’m off to New York in the summer and I’m dying to visit this place – mainly because of its wonderfully Gothic sounding name, but also because of its similarity to a Natural History Museum exhibit – with its cabinets full of glittering ancient objects and furniture that look like archeological artifacts. Erie Basin is […] Read more…

Thé Dansant

Sweet and sometimes surreal tokens from Thé Dansant [meaning Tea Dance] two ‘merry’ Belgian sisters who decided to open up an online-shop together. Sometimes they find vintage objects and other times re-purpose them by adding whimiscal touches with packaging or customisation like hand painted vintage objects and these delightful vintage spoons in glass test-tubes, waiting […] Read more…

How to Successfully buy Vintage Online…

It’s been 3 months now since I gave up my job in TV to work in Interiors. It’s been a slow [subtitle: major understatement] process, shall we say, finding work but an interesting experiment in how to keep yourself from going bonkers with nothing but your own company for entertainment.
