A Girl’s Guiding To Decorating by Abigail Ahern

As excited I was about holding ‘A Girl’s Guide to Decorating’ [see yesterday’s post] by stylist, entrepreneur, interior designer extra-ordinaire Abigail Ahern, and having admired her bold style for so long…I was apprehensive as to what I would find inside. Could I relate to the high-end, eclectic style that prevails in her shop and own […] Read more…

The Art of Cinema

Sigh! I’ll bet Claudia Varosio is one cool lady…you can tell right? From looking at her painfully clever popular culture inspired illustrations, she seems like the kind of girl who you’d be too shy to talk to for the whole year at art college because she looked too cool to be your friend, and her […] Read more…

Ferm Inspiration

Clever Scandi brand Ferm Living have created an inspirational online magazine whilst their website is being updated. It’s essentially a very well styled and designed catalogue, but the ideas and imagery are so lush and imaginative that you feel like you’re reading a popular editorial publication. It would certainly make its way into my basket […] Read more…

Seating for Eating

As usual Studio Ilse launched a nothing short of remarkable furniture collection, at this years London Design Festival. The ‘Seating for Eating’ range was inspired by vernacular English seating and consists of solid chestnut settles, benches and stools. The graceful settles are high backed for comfort and privacy, without being closed off from the room. […] Read more…

La Cerise sur le Gateau

Does anyone else feel the need to weep at the sheer originality of these cushions by La Cerise sur Le Gateau [cherry on the cake]??? Ok, perhaps that’s slightly over-dramatic but considering the French brand’s inspirations range from fairy tales to Wong Kar Wai movies, Polaroid images to Rinko Kawauchi photos, and from holiday souvenirs […] Read more…
