The Canyon Series by Amy Hamley

March 2, 2015

The-Canyon-Series

I absolutely love this ceramic range called The Canyon Series by Amy Hamley. She hand paints porcelain pieces with 14K gold luster. How super luxurious is that? I wouldn’t mind if my entire dinner service was made out of The Canyon Series.

It feels like if Willy Wonker were the King of England, his royal crockery would all look like this and I mean this in the best possible way.

Dani-Loureiro

Dani Loureiro is a freelance illustrator, letterer and graphic designer living and working in Cape Town. Dani designs the most amazing type pieces both on paper and in 3D. I commissioned her a couple of months ago to make me one of her custom made wooden typography pieces for Shane for our anniversary and what she sent over was beyond awesome. It’s seriously one of our most favourite things in our house.

Sanda Anderlon

Sanda Anderlon-10

Sanda Anderlon is an artist/illustrator who lives in Zagreb, Croatia. She makes both static and animated works, ranging in style, from metaphorical eye-candies, childish cartoons or old-school pen on paper studies to collaged XL narrative visual feasts, like the one below.

This giant collage is entitled Party, which describes as a drunken jungle in a two-storey collage. I just think it’s pure magic. There is so much going on, it’s like a modern day ‘Where’s Wally?’ Would love to get lost in this piece in real life.

Nanushka

Nanushka-10

Nanushka is a Budapest based label founded by head designer, Sandra Sandor. I love all her clean designs, textures and patterns that she incorporates into her clothes. All her pieces look so comfortable and easy to wear but really luxurious too. Her colour pallet is also so nice, the lights pinks and blues, the whites and navies. I suppose having a beautiful model showing off your clothes doesn’t hurt either. How super pretty is this girl? Shoo.

old-car

We went on our second #PUMAgram Instawalk over the weekend. The weather once again turned on us, but the gloominess of the day kind of suited it’s Newtown surroundings, so it was all good.

We had such a good turnout, so I’d like to say thanks to everyone who came out, umbrellas and all and I really hope to see you all on the next#PUMAgram Instawalk, which is happening on the 14th of March.

Last week Shane, Nina James and I made our way 2 hours out of Cape Town to the beautiful Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in Gansbaai.

I have been wanting to go to Grootbos Private Nature Reserve for ages. I have double tapped Instagrams of this magical place and I’ve swooned over it online and finally I got a chance to spend a couple of days on this amazing piece of land in the heart of an ancient Milkwood Forest.
