It’s the Deepavali festival tomorrow (also see my Diwali post from last year – I wonder why its name changes depending on what country you call home) and I thought I’d make the most of the excuse to post about some delectable Indian decor goodies.
I’ve had a soft spot for kantha quilts for a long long time now. Whether they’re bright and colourful or have more neutral tones, I love ’em all!
Morning morning lovelies, how was the weekend? We were sad to stay goodbye to the fam yesterday, had a lovely 10 days catching up in Asia (this is my excuse for poor blog form, ahem…).
I received this email on Saturday from one of my fave UK suppliers, and thought it would be very selfish not to share!
Here are some of my picks from the many many stonking pieces on offer…
Blighty folk, what are you waiting for?!
This morning I realised I hadn’t put together a please-move-to-my-home-immediately list for a little while now.
Here are my September finds.
These gorgeous Moroccan throw pillows and aubergine kilim would look right at home in our guest bedroom, not to mention this cute quirky semi-bling floor lamp. I am STILL lusting after these agate cheese platters from Jayson Home, love love love. And they would look faaabulous in a kitchen wearing these all natural leather/bone cabinet pulls from Anthro. I am totally floored by this rustic bench by CB2. CB2?! Looks like it’s from Bali or somewhere equally exotic. These colourful bangles (here and here) would add some oomph to my outfit today I am sure (do you get J Crew in Asia?!), and this ikat armchair is in the most scrummy jewelly shades, just divine.
How about you…? What’s on your radar this month?
Welcome back to part two lovelies!
Which is your fave decor piece, do tell…?
So my new General Life Hero Gwynnie wrote last week about an incredible trip she took on the Indonesian Silolona sailboat. The images literally took my breath away, not only of the insaaaaanely well designed boat, but also the gorgeous coastlines and sunsets it cruises around.
Feast your peepers:
Tell me your jaw is not on the floor?! Sadly not within our grasp anytime soon I suspect, but a trip to Indo is certainly on the cards!
And in case you want to get your boat on, here are a few delectable nautical goodies handpicked by yours truly. You are welcome.
Beware though, there is alotta lotta heinous beach-themed ‘decor’ out there, a lot of it residing in our former stomping grounds in Cayman, including this monstrosity:
And this (sequinned) one:
And this one:
Aaargh, somebody make me stop, my eyes are hurting…
There is nothing better in the summer sunshine than a long lazy picnic. Preferably with a cold bottle of (Spanish) bubbles and some M&S foodhall goodies (dangnammit I miss Marks & Sparks!).
I think this weekend might have to feature some kind of picnic action, that looks a little like this…
So I am usually ALL ABOUT the antique brass these days, but a couple of recent finds make a little exception to this rule:
Now all I need is a spare $15k to buy them – any ideas?!
One King’s Lane have a pretty fab sale on today, for anyone in the market for a garden stool type affair – you should head on over and check it out.
Totally flexible, these little beauties can be used in pretty much every room of the home as well as outside spaces, and are the perfect objects to be styled within an inch of their lives.
Here are some of my fave inspo shots right now:
Of course I’m loving them paired with a cheeky ikat or suzani…
And here are some I’m lusting after right now…
So these little fellas got a bit of a mixed reaction yesterday, but here’s my sourcing round up for anyone hankering after some shell in their life/or err on their wall:
