Those of you who know me, will also know that I have a slight obsession for anything white, beige or wood. And if these three are combined…well then, goodness gracious me, I’m sold!!!
So here’s a store, a very beautiful store – filled with reclaimed wood, and lots and LOTS of white and beige. Oh be still, my beating heart! Not only in terms of the interior, but the merchandise as well. People of the interwebs, may I introduce to you, Folklore“.
There are too many delightful items to show you, so I’ve gone ahead and chosen a few of my favourites. For the full range, you will have to mosey on down to the their store in London, or if you’re too far away (like I am) just visit their online store…oh credit cards, be scared!
“Folklore curates mindful design for home and life. We source a selection of goods that are created with care and made to last. Our range includes homewares, furniture, lighting, art and lifestyle goods.”
“We work with brilliant designers and makers. We look for craftsmanship, quality, simplicity and durability in all of our products. Some are handmade, antique or made from recycled or found materials. Others are easily recyclable at the end of their life. All are made in an environmentally mindful way.”
The clothes…the light…the photography…the FLOWERS *swoon* Please do yourself the biggest favour, and have a look at the latest collection from Scout & Catalogue. The entire package is just, well, breathtaking.
“Scout & Catalogue is heavily influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico. We strive to make pieces that remind you of afternoons at secret beaches, sun kissed skin, and all day siestas.”
It’s such a grey wintery day here today – it is honestly SO cold, we have had a fire going since mid-morning! This is usually unheard of in our mild seasons. But I came across these beautiful shot by Ana Cabaleiro which are most definitely warming me up from the inside. They have such a dreamy feel – just like summer holidays, spent road-tripping, playing in the sand, being free and just loving life.
Oh, how I long for days like these again…x
I love, love, LOVE getting lost in the world of Etsy – and I’m pretty darn sure I’m not the only one – I literally fall in lust with something new everyday! And it is so inspiring, for me as a fellow designer, to see the creativity emerging from our generation. It really makes my little heart so happy to see all things handmade and beautiful. Yay.
So…while browsing around there this morning, I stumbled upon these bags. Holy moly!!! I need to have on in my life. But then, which colour to choose. They’re all so lovely. And I know the whole geometric thing has been completely overdone lately, but I don’t care – these bags are just, wow.
All the way from Lithuania, this husband-wife couple create their magic with the use of natural cottons and genuine leather details.
These are just a few examples from their shop, Coriumi, so go check them out, and let me know what you think xx
I know it hasn’t been long, but I decided I needed to make some changes. I know “BLACK MACARON” hasn’t been around for that long, but there is more to this change than may appear. All will be revealed at a later stage…but for now, this is me.
