Sunday Love

Welcome to today’s Sunday Love which has a lovely pink coloured theme.

I believe in pink.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Audrey Hepburn

1.  The Moth Princess by Christian Schloe.  I really like Christian Schloe’s surrealist digital art.  I find it very creative and love the colour palette he uses.  You can find more of Christian Schloe’s work on these websites – Society 6, Redbubble and Artflakes.

2.  Audrey Hepburn.

3.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of Chanel design and this camelia inspired watch is simply gorgeous.  The watch is made of 18k white gold with cultured pearls, mother of pearl and diamonds.  A real collector’s piece.

4.  How about travelling to Venice on the Orient Express?  I know I would love to!  This train is legendary and to be able to travel in such style and luxury would be an absolute treat.

“A work of art in itself and a true Art Deco icon, the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train offers one of the most celebrated and romantic journeys in the world.  Adventure and style are all intimately bound in journeys that crisscross Europe, rolling through sublime scenery to some of the continent’s most alluring cities.  Delightful vintage cabins, gastronomic cuisine and lively onboard entertainment make a journey on this luxury train one of the world’s finest travel experiences.”

 It sounds fabulous.
5.  The Cotton Candy Cocktail.  This drink is so simple to make.  Pop some candy floss into a martini glass and poor over lemonade or champage – delicious!!
Have a lovely day.

The Blue Whale

This is the first piece I have made for my soft sculpture collection ‘under the sea’.  This blue whale measures 40 cm long and he’s made of fabric with a soft stuffing and painted with watercolour paint.  He’s currently sitting on display in my lounge and looks very much at home.  He would certainly add a touch of character to any interior decorating scheme x

Sunday Love

Welcome to today’s Sunday Love.

This week’s love list has a bit of an international flavour.  I’ve found myself drawn to images of warm exotic climates during the week while we experience our ‘lovely’ British weather!

  1. Moroccan inspired bathroom sinks. These colourful basins would certainly add a spalsh of colour and interest to your bathroom. I think I would happily brush my teeth and wash my face all day if I had such a pretty bathroom sink.
  2. ‘No matter how you feel.  Get up, dress up, show up and never give up’.  I find this sentiment very motivating and inspiring and for me, it is always followed by some kind of personal achievement.
  3. Chateau de Gudanes.  I was absolutely fascinated when this Chateau popped up in my Facebook feed.  An Australian couple have purchased a very neglected French Chateau at the foot of the Pyranees.  You can follow their restoration adventure by following their blog or finding them on Facebook.  They have a huge amount of work to do, but their vision and plans for the future are fascinating and it is really interesting to read about what they are doing and what they have found.
  4. Procida, Italy.  As a huge fan of the pastel colour palette I was immediately draw to this image as soon as I saw it.  Procida is a little island that can be found off the coast of Naples.  I love the ram shackled layout of the pretty town and hope I get the chance to visit one day.
  5. Marit Fujiwara.  Unfortunately I can’t find a website for Marit Fujiwara’s work, but from the information I have found she specialises in mixed media and constructive textiles and creates some incredibly unique pieces that push the boundaries between art, craft and design.  She is obviously very experimental combining traditional printing techniques with embroidery and fabric manipulation and draws on her illustration skills to add fluidity to her garments.  The dress I have shown looks like a watercolour painting and is absolutely stunning.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s Sunday Love.

Have a lovely day.

Sunday Love

It’s time for some Sunday Love.

These are the things that have particularly caught my attention this week.1. Well I just and am and it will be!;)

2.  Monsoon‘s wedding collection.  I had an email this week alerting me to Monsoon’s bridal collection.  As a wedding photographer I do love all things wedding, but prefer pared down low key wedding style.  Monsoon have such a lovely collection of dresses and outfits for the little ones are super cute too!

3.  Farrow and Ball also emailed me this week to let me know their key colours for 2015.  I love their Light Blue Estate emulsion, although it looks quite green in their image but suits their photograph and interior details perfectly!

“The use of Light Blue in the home is intended to create an interior where colours shift and change like the landscape. We instinctively gravitate towards colours that remind us of the softer side of life to make our homes into an oasis of calm away from the brashness of modern life. To create an almost transparent interior, contrast the colour’s silvery, smoky qualities with the unexpectedly cool grey Dimpse, a colour inspired by the tones of twilight. Create a feeling of relaxed movement by adding an accent of Lamp Room Gray on the floor, feature wall or furniture, and Blackened on the ceiling.”  Farrow and Ball.

4.  Rebecca Rebouche is a New Orleans artist making allegorical paintings of the natural world and is also one of Anthropologie‘s designers.  I just LOVE her work which is very reminiscent of dreams containing symbols.  I also love the colour palette she uses.  Sympathetically soft to complement her work.

5.  Exodus: Gods and Kings.  While I will admit to watching the trailer to have a peek at Christian Bale, the epic films are always a visual treat and the costumes are amazing.  I was reading an interview with Sigourney Weaver who described her exquisite handmade headdresses – a peacock headress, a pheasant headress and one made from real scarab beetles.  I will definitely be watching this film to enjoy the costumes, story and of course Christian;)

I hope you have enjoyed today’s Sunday love.

Have a great day
