This illustration of Piazza San Marco is from his 1967 book, Peddlers and Vendors Around the World. If you’re into vintage children’s books this would be a good one to add to your collection. There are currently a few copies available to buy at Abe Books.
This image encapsulates so much of what interests us – interiors, cooking, styling, photography. The colours in the kitchen are so very Scandinavian – steely monochrome greys – cool, understated and sophisticated.
Stockholm-based Grimsgård has a gorgeous portfolio of interiors, fashion, food and portraiture shots – this is one of our favourites.
Happy Left-Handers Day! Adelle is left-handed (along with about 10% of the world population). To celebrate we’re featuring a vintage Spanish film poster for El Zurdo (meaning southpaw). Starring Paul Newman, the original English title is The Left Handed Gun. It refers to the (disputed) fact that the infamous outlaw, Billy the Kid was left-handed.
I LOVE this jumbo cable knit throw, it makes the bed look so inviting. Hand-knitted soft furnishings make a bedroom feel cosy, comfortable and luxurious.
