Buying our first house has got me even more obsessed with all things interiors and decorating. Pinterest is becoming a bit of an addicition. As we're going for all white walls to start with, I am investigating all of the different ways to add lots of colour. These cushions from textile artist Garima Dhawan definitely fit the bill. Although, they're called throw pillows I am pretty sure they are just cushions- can someone translate American?! I hear throw pillows and think pillow fight, which you definitely wouldn't want to do with these lovely pieces!
Images from The Marshmallowists
Apparently it is supposed to be summer, but as I sit here looking out of my window at the wet, blustery weather, clutching a hot cup of coffee and wrapped up in my fleece dressing gown, I am not so convinced. It's a shame because after seeing these amazing marshmallows from The Marshmallowists all I want to do is have a summery campfire and toast marshmallows! And make smores. I suppose I could just eat them instead though, or put them on top a seasonably inappropriate hot chocolate! These are seriously grown up marshmallows though, with flavours like blueberry and gin, raspberry and champagne and coconut. Yum! You can find the Marshmallowists at one of my favourite places- Portobello Road market.

Good morning and happy Monday! Guess what? I am pregnant! (hence the absence on the blog the last few weeks- I was just too wiped out in the mornings to post regularly!). Add in to that we're hopefully buying a house and it has been a crazy time! So, a good cup of strong filter coffee where I don't have to think about the mg of caffeine in it (the more the merrier) sounds really good right now. (On that note, does anyone have any good decaf recommendations?).
It's little wonder then that I love this work from Malaysian artist Hong Yi- a beautiful portrait created out of a variety of coffee stains. And how good does that strong coffee look at the top?!

I just love sketches and sketch books. When I was at school I got permission to see some Leonardo da Vinci's anatomy sketches and I was absolutely fascinated. I still vividly remember putting on the special white gloves and being in total awe! I always intend to (and have great ambitions!) to keep a daily sketch book, but my good intentions always get distracted by things like work, sleep, taking photos and day to day life. So I always love looking inside artists' sketch books. I love these daily sketches from Sophie Leblanc.
