The Whitepepper 215. September 2014

Went and checked out if the The Whitepepper had new stock, which they do. I blogged about some of their awesome stuff a while back and this time around they don’t disappoint again. Such nice tones and patterns mixed with laid back cuts and styles. So very very cool.

Baked magic that I wish I could sink my face into.11. September 2014

Here are some of the flipping delicious looking things that I have pinned lately and drooled over. I’m so happy to have my sweet teeth back, whilst I was pregnant I craved salty things more that sweet, which is really not like me, but I’m happy to say that that has all changed. I could take any of these cakes out right now with my bare hands and face, no fork needed.

All the recipes are below each photo.

Cool spaces10. September 2014

Was looking around this blog today and I came across 2 homes that I think are just too cool. The first one is in Amsterdam and is filled with all sorts of souvenirs brought back from the owner’s worldwide travels. This little place is right up my alley, I love homes that are filled with memories and trinkets, a space that looks like it’s been lived in and enjoyed.

The 2nd one is located in Sweeden and it’s slightly less quirky, but still so nicely decorated with bits of modern and vintage touches. The kitchen is my most favourite part of this space. Nice nice nice.

I need to do another post on our home, haven’t showed you guys our bedroom yet. Yes, I will do that room next!

Laurie Lipton05. September 2014

These very peculiar and intricate drawings of by an artist called Laurie Lipton. I find them so bizarre, but just as intriguing. They’re like you’re taking a glimpse back into the past, but after you’ve eaten way too much Sunday lunch and sat out in the sun for too long, if you know what I mean.

- Laurie Lipton was inspired by the religious paintings of the Flemish School. She tried to teach herself how to paint in the style of the 16th century Dutch Masters and failed. When traveling around Europe as a student, she began developing her very own peculiar drawing technique building up tone with thousands of fine cross-hatching lines like an egg tempera painting. “It’s an insane way to draw”, she says, “but the resulting detail and luminosity is worth the amount of effort. My drawings take longer to create than a painting of equal size and detail.”

Laurie says – The photographer, Diane Arbus, was another of my inspirations. Her use of black and white hit me at the core of my Being. Black and white is the color of ancient photographs and old TV shows… it is the color of ghosts, longing, time passing, memory, and madness. Black and white ached. I realized that it was perfect for the imagery in my work.”

I absolutely love this big open Northcote warehouse, which has been converted into a home. It’s filled with wonderful art, colour and amazingness.

These images comes off one of my most favourite interior blogs – The Design Files
