INDUSTRY OF ONE | YAS IMAMURA

So, when I saw who was recently featured on Industry of One, I figured it was high time they appeared on the blog again! And if you haven’t heard of the lovely Yas Imamura, of Quill & Fox fame (under which rock were you hiding?) then look no further my friends…

BOOTS & PINE

Ohmygosh…it’s been nearly two months since I last blogged! I didn’t even realise!

This time of year seems to absolutely fly by, and I always find myself feeling like I’ve skipped a month somewhere along the line. Which is, in fact, a good thing, as it means we’re one month closer to summer holiday! Can I get a “Hell, yeah?!” HELL, YEAH!!!

Anyway, I guess it all boils down to me feeling pretty uninspired the last few weeks. Work has been crazy-busy (which is great) and I find it often leaves me feeling mentally drained and kinda zombie-like by the get home. But…I spotted something this week that has managed to put a spring back in my step! Hurrah! So here goes, peeps – have a look see at Boots & Pine!

I discovered Arden Wray’s new photographic project on Fieldguided the other day, wherin Anabela herself was featured! Could you even imagine a better-suited amalgamation of awesomness? Words alone don’t do the project any justice, so please, please go take a look for yourself – an absolute feast for the eyes…

INDUSTRY OF ONE

Oh my gosh…don’t you just love Industry of One?! It’s such an awe-inspiring collection of some truly stand-out creatives.

“Industry of One is a periodical on the wears of work created by Adam Patrick Jones and Rachel Brown. Here and now again they will explore the style trappings of various industries + professions and document the relationship between one’s line of work + walk of life.”

I’ve just spent a good few minutes lusting after the life of Adrienne Antonson, a designer and sculptor currently based in New York. Have a look here for the full interview xx

IT’S A SPRING THING

The weather has been so awfully unpredictable lately. Ok, so I know it’s supposed to be winter down here, but honestly, in amongst the torrential downpours and near monsoon-like wind conditions, appear (out of nowhere) the most amazing days. Crisp, blue, cloudless skies, warm breezes, and just enough sun to create those lovely rosy cheeks. Wow, am I ready for spring, or what!

So if you’re feeling anything like me at the moment, here’s a little collection of some lovelies to get you through those grey, gloomy days. Not long now though mind you, another month or so, and we’ll be prancing around in those floral prints once again…hooray!!!

FOLKLORE

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!
