New Age Inspiration

Is there anything in the world more inspiring than great photography? Please, tell me I'm not the only one overcome with jealousy when someone's Facebook album of Spot the dog comes out looking better than my pictures from Paris. I've been putting some serious thought into taking a few photography courses in order to get the most out of my pictures...

In any case, I find this craze of photographing understated objects in incredible ways to be so inspiring, particularly because it's often done by people who aren't professionally trained photographers. They're just ridiculously talented people. Suddenly a cup of coffee or a bookshelf becomes this larger than life expression.

Club Monaco has caught onto this and created a website called...
...where creative Club Monaco employees and "friends" share things that inspire them, like favourite places, objects and musings.


For Kate

I just watched these (click HERE) videos of Kate and Andy Spade's homes in the Southampton and New York City over at My Favorite and My Best (love Jenny's blog). Their homes are so happy and youthful, and their art collection is unreal! They're certainly not afraid to fill their homes with colour and things they love.

Then I stumbled upon Annechovie, an adorable blog by artist Anne Harwell. These gorgeous, colourful pieces are all her paintings and they're all for sale on Etsy! Her work was even featured in It's Complicated! Her whimsical touch reminds me so much of Kate Spade's styling.


Chelsea Textiles Ltd

My heart may swoon for all things Bolier (I still can't get the Live Work Play line out of my head...), but the comfy sofa-loving side of me craves modest and hearty furniture on cold days like today. It's like the interior design equivalent to chicken noodle soup. And for that, I recommend Chelsea Textiles Ltd.

Simple lines. Earthy colours (with the exception of their lacquered line). Here are a few of my favourite pieces!
