pattern inspiration

Some pattern inspiration: a surprisingly stylish harlequin dish cloth and hand rendered stars and stripes on my I love Paris bunny from Mikodesign .

black and white

I love colour but I’m always drawn back to a black and white palette. My new Maija Louekari tea towel fits just right with my mood at the moment. Here it is with some recent inspirational reading material.

After seeing Jonathan Adler’s jet set coasters in Sweet Paul’s summer edition I just had to have them! Someone else sweet tracked them down for me online and they arrived today. Yipee. This one is my favourite.

Lovely day spent by the river. Pork belly lunch from Roast to Go at Borough Market, the Wim Crouwel exhibition at the Design Museum and a walk around Tower Bridge.

Even though I studied French New Wave cinema at school, I never actually watched any Godard films. A Bout De Souffle has long been on my ‘to watch’ list and (years later) I finally got round to watching it the other day. Don’t ask me about the plot, but I love how stylish Godard’s films are! I have been in love with the apartment from Le Mepris for a while, in particular the red sofa. I love red sofas.
