Packing again.... I am off to Australia for the summer there. While packing, all I can think about is long hot summer days and so nothing speaks more to me than a suitcase full of pure white. There are splashes of grey and denim and maybe just maybe some black too. Here are some inspirational ideas for your whiter wardrobe, and why you need white trainers.
It's always the details that count when you love a space. Inject your work and living areas with as much light and beauty as possible.
My great loves being the plant and animal world, I adore this series of digital manipulations combined in this series of brilliant. Wherever you may be I hope it's magical in some way.
I am off to Paris this weekend...
Ok, so not everyone is as fortunate as me in being able to work freelance and have their Monday as the most restorative and relaxing day of the week. Whatever your situation today I hope you make the best of it.
Valentino not only knows how to make the ever evolving and amazing fashions we crave season after season. He also has a flare in the kitchen. His new book is as much about the simplistic food he loves and has curated over the years as it is about his love of elaborate table dressing, knowing too well that both go hand in hand with equal importance.
"Just recipes was ridiculous, especially when all the 'ta-da' is the table settings." Having said that Valentino is also turning a corner around the idea of possession. "I have desires much more serious than to buy stupid things, china or silver or things like this. I am not able to discuss politics, but I have my ideas, and I am very concerned and sad when I read what is happening in the world. Automatically, the joy you had for what you did is compromised. So I have no desire to go round and buy things for the house. I go to Frieze, I admire lots of things, but I've stopped buying. People are more important to me now…my life, my friends.” If your entertaining this week remember that more is more.
During the past few months we have been apartment hunting! It's a nightmare out there, but the silver lining is the creative eye you can lend to a million different spaces. For me it's all about keeping a place at once neutral, but with masculine black accents. Less is always more so keep a very edited eye about the things you own and take the change of season as an opportunity to throw away anything you have fallen out of love with.
