Hot pink stockings are suddenly catching my eyes. So very cool and edgy. Hot pink is the new black - that's my prediction :) i reckon it goes with anything- whether it clashes, if it's a splash or it's all hot pink...it's like alice in wonderland on acidBy stylist Jane Roarty

Furniture shopping with the boy has made me fall in love with Eames chairs. I just love the design simplicity of their clean but rounded lines that seem to compliment any interior. In particular, I like their dining chairs and clearly many out there love them too because the number of replica versions available is mind blowing!
Found these images of the metal-leg version of my favourite dining chair featured in this beautiful home in Skonahem online magazine via Poppytalk. There are also gorgeous red Eames rocking chairs in the living room - they are so cute!

Found this beautiful online magazine called Antler from decor8blog. It's full of articles and images that conjure up feelings of nostalgia and serenity. Check out their first issue and be ready to have all your design and artistic needs met in the one place. There's even a feature on terrariums - how adorable!
It's carbon neutral too so enjoy with a happy conscience and a happy planet.

I'm a big Dadaist fan. Kay even got me a dadaist singlet all the way from Sth. America.
This Cyberoptix tie is a nice homage to Duchamp's "Ceci n'est pas un pipe". Cyberoptix has some really cool ties. They even do custom packages for weddings.
Charli will testify to you that I like my food and beverages nice and temperature hot before consumption! Sometimes this can be problematic because my sensitive epidermis doesn't like the food as hot as I do but if I wait long enough so that I can touch it, it's too cold to drink! Such as today - desperate to drink my coffee but unable to actually hold onto the paper cup because it was burning my fingers...how frustrating!
With this gorgeous coffee holder, I wouldn't have this issue plus it's functional design also allows it to be worn as a piece of beautiful jewelry.
Available from the clever folk at contexture design.

Kay and I helped design and create the next decor theme for church. We spent most of our new years eve cutting insects, fruits, leaves and grass from paper...and then glue-gunning them all together. It was actually a really great way to spend NYE instead of being a human sardine in the middle of the CDB.

The speed and convenience of the internet aside, how much do you love receiving snail mail? Even better when it's a package and even better still when it's a pressie! I was so excited to receive this gift from my friends who recently tied the knot to thank me for 1) suggesting they have a bridal party and (2) being a part of the bridal party (...not the reason I suggested they have a bridal party mind you...I promise! Although it was a great priviledge and experience).
I can't find a picture of the exact shoes I received because they don't have the colour at their online shop but here's a shot of our bridesmaid shoes in the bride's favourite colour purple. My pressie is an equally awesome pair of purple suede pumps.
Thanks hun! Now we need an occasion to wear them to together!

following the post on cool photographers - get inspired by these artists...
paul graham - a dude who travelled around america taking pictures and (somehow) ended up with 12 books of narrative with a 'hope' (in the form of light in the pictures) as an underlying theme - hence the title of the exhibition 'a shimmer of possibility'
martin kippenberger - a dude from germany who did seemingly everything - sculpting, painting, photographing, his own exhibition posters... they say he was 'prolific'.
the photos and works of these fellas are thought-provoking but not the extent of being unreachable - that's cool.

I'm clearly really hanging out to see Deenie's professional photos (because she looked so gorgeous of her wedding day!) but I shall have to be patient!
In the meantime, Max Wanger has posted this latest engagement shoot. He is a genius. I love his ideas and composition. Now if only somebody like him was available closer to home!

Some people have the most amazing homes. This beautifully decorated loft is featured by the very talented french team at Cotemaison. I love the use of colour and the distressed finishes. Everything is set so low to the ground too, even the beds and shelves. And how incredible are the couches? Oh and the piece de resistance, they have a pink Smeg fridge...enough said...I am in love with this home!
